Okay so I'm getting a car but I go to uni in September and won't be taking it with me so I'll just be using it in holidays and weekends. Is there a way I can insure it only when I'm using it so like temporary insurance?

I don’t think there is but try searching it up. Most insurance companies that I looked into insure the car for the whole year and don’t really take into account that you may not use if for the whole year.

There are certainly companies that offer temporary insurance but are bound to be more expensive than taking out insurance for a whole year

Unfortunately I believe if you have a car, it is illegal for it to be uninsured (unless declared off the road to the DVLA), whether it's being driven or not.

Yes there is by miles insurance which you can try. It costs you the number of miles you drive.
