This type of insurance can be a bit more costly then regular insurance but well worth it in case something could happen to the vehicle.
Here are some reasons why you would want to purchase temporary insurance.
Heading out on a vacation? Temporary insurance is a good idea if you are going to be driving a vehicle which is not yours, or a rental car to avoid some high rental company insurance fees. Check to see if your current auto policy covers rental cars, if not you may need the temporary auto insurance. Business travelers may purchase temporary auto insurance in conjunction with car rentals for work purposes.
Your son or daughter are home from college and needs to use your car or truck. Although the temporary auto insurance policy is more expensive than regular coverage on a month to month basis, using it for these limited periods can sometimes be far less expensive than including the student on a family’s policy.
Moving to a new home with friends helping out, and possibly driving your vehicle’s is another reason to be covered while in transit.
In each of the above situations, or in any circumstance you are buying a temporary auto insurance policy, be sure to check with your auto insurance company. Sometimes, temporary drivers of a vehicle may already be insured through the regular policy on the vehicle and your insurance may already cover you for Car Rentals.
Note that it is usually not possible to purchase temporary policies for situations where an individual is living in the same house as the policyholder.
