Do you know where I might be able to get car insurance for my 20 year old son for approx 10 days?

Thank you

I'm afraid there's no company at the moment which offers short term car insurance cover for 20 years old. The minimum age requirement for temporary insurance is 21.

The minimum cover that you can get for your son is for a whole month. If you would like to know more about this, then let me know.

For the time being, there are no companies who will provide 20 year old short term car insurance. Maybe in the future, some insurers will come forward to cater for this gap in the market but this may take a long time because insurance itself is a risky business and insuring younger drivers is even more risky.

As it stands, short term cover is from a period of 1-28 days. If you however wish to get your 20 year old insured for a minimum of 1 month, then this can be arranged. Let me know how long you were looking temp insurance for?
