    I need to get car insurance while I am home from uni for the summer but don't need my car when I go back in september, what do other people do for insurance in this situation?

    What's the cheapest way, get insurance and then cancel it or get some type of temporary cover? Are there cancelation fees if I cancel?


    Yes there are cancellation fees.

    Do you really need your car or can you travell via other means of transport?
    It would be cheaper to do that.

    Im not 100% sure that you can get insured for a month or two. But i did on provisional insurance before i passed.

    Living in the countryside I could really do with my car so It's worth it while I'm at home but not when at uni in the city.

    I just feel like this must be a situation a lot of student car drivers find themselves in yet I don't know what most people do.
