Motorpoint driveaway and annual car insurance

If you’ve just bought a great nearly new car, you’ll be itching to get on the road. However, you need to make sure you’re insured before you and your wheels set off together for the first time.

You can take the time to arrange your full annual cover then and there, but this can be a hassle. If you just want to get out on the open road, you might find it’s quicker and easier to take advantage of Motorpoint’s temporary insurance cover.

How much is temporary insurance cover?

If you buy a car from us, you’ll be given the option to add temporary insurance cover. This costs £19.99 and gives you three days of drive-away insurance coverage. That means you can drive home straight away in your nearly new car and arrange your annual insurance policy from the comfort of your home at a time that suits you.

This price is available to Motorpoint customers through our partnership with Tempcover and is often more affordable than temporary insurance coverage arranged by other providers. Plus, by delaying the start date of your annual insurance policy compared with arranging on the day of purchase, you’re likely to be offered a lower premium by providers.

Save money on your annual car insurance policy

After your temporary insurance coverage ends, you’ll need to arrange a full annual insurance policy for your Motorpoint car. That’s why we’ve teamed up with to help our customers save money on their car insurance.
