Everyone hates to try and get accurate quotes for car insurance. Unfortunately the steps for getting short term car insurance quotesis pretty much exactly the same as getting quotes for a regular policy.
What most people recommend is to begin by calling your current insurance company. You already have a relationship with them, and they want to keep you as a customer so they will probably do whatever they can to accommodate you. In these instances they will usually let you add the temporary car/driver to your current policy and then cancel it. This way works if you’re ok with keeping the policy for at least a month. It would be more tricky but possible to figure out a way to pay for only a certain amount of days with a regular policy. However, before you go this route be sure and discuss any applicable cancellation fees with your representative to insure you are not surprised by the final bill. Also, be sure and clarify the type of coverage you want. It’s likely that you don’t want full coverage for a temporary policy – depending of course on the type of car you’re driving…If this way works out for your situation, you can avoid having to get an entirely new policy written up and then canceled.
However if your current company does not offer anything like this – then your best bet is to go to one of the plethora of car insurance quote websites and enter your information. You won’t be able to get a short term car insurance quote but if you’re careful to specify the type of coverage you will want on your short term policy, you will get a fairly accurate idea of who the cheapest provider will be. Then you just pick up the phone and start calling.
