    The title pretty much sums it up. I don't intend taking my car to uni come september, but I would like to see if anybody has experience insuring their car for short term periods, ie: the odd weekend or christmas holidays.

    Cheers.

    probably the most cost effect way is to take out a policy and cancel it.

    I know elephant give you 14 days to cancel a policy , minus a £40 fee.. so say you use it for a week or so, cancel having paid £60 for he month, get £20 back, job done.

    not aware of any short term insurers for u25's although I'm sure they exist.

    alternatively have yourself put on someone else's policy for a few days every so often, if someone back home will use the car.

    Wouldn't it be better in the long run to keep your normal insurance policy (assuming the car's in your name and you're the "keeper" of the car), since you'll clock up a no-claims bonus? If you just have temporary insurance then you'll get no NCB and be hit with much higher premiums when you leave uni and re-insure your car with a full policy.
