Short Term Car cover

Go.Compare launches first ever short term car insurance comparison service

The new service is powered by long-term partner Comparison Creator 

Go.Compare has launched the first ever temporary car insurance comparison service, designed for drivers who only need insurance for a short amount of time.

The comparison service is offered via a white label service with Comparison Creator, who already supply breakdown, gadget, wedding and home emergency comparison for Go.Compare. The new comparison has launched with two insurance panel members, with others due to join in the coming weeks.

Drivers will be able to compare policies offering cover for a few hours to a month, from fully comprehensive to third party cover, as well as those who need insurance for business purposes.

Commenting on the launch Ceri McMillan, Managing Director of Go.Compare, said: “Short-term car insurance is a product that has grown significantly in recent years. We’ve seen more and more people looking for this type of cover, so we are thrilled to be able to offer a comparison of this product for the first time.

“Gone are the days when everyone owns their own car, some families now share cars while others only need a car for a few weeks at a time, and that’s where services like this come in. Having the flexibility to have a car insurance policy for just a few hours, or even just for a short business trip will help ensure that all drivers are properly protected when on the road, no matter their circumstances.”

Ceri added: “It’s also great that we have been able to launch this product with our long-term partner, Comparison Creator. We already have a great relationship with the Comparison Creator team having worked with them for several years on various products, particularly its breakdown comparison service.”

Steve Jones, CEO of Comparison Creator, said: “The fact that Go.Compare has come to us to launch its short term car insurance service is a testament to the hard working team and expertise we have here at Comparison Creator. It is great to see another one of our white label services launched with Go.Compare.”

About Go.Compare

Go.Compare is a comparison website that enables people to compare the costs and features of a wide variety of insurance policies, financial products and energy tariffs.

It does not charge people to use its services and does not accept advertising or sponsored listings, so all product comparisons are unbiased. Go.Compare makes its money through fees paid by the providers of products that appear on its various comparison services when a customer buys through the site.

When it launched in 2006, it was the first comparison site to focus on displaying policy details rather than just listing prices, with the aim of helping people to make better-informed decisions when buying their insurance. It is this approach to comparing products that secured the company an invitation to join the British Insurance Brokers’ Association (BIBA) in 2008, and it is still the only comparison site to be a member of this organisation.

Go.Compare has remained dedicated to helping people choose the most appropriate products rather than just the cheapest and works with Defaqto, the independent financial researcher, to integrate additional policy information into a number of its insurance comparison services. This allows people to compare up to an extra 30 features of cover.

Go.Compare is part of Future Plc and is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).
