    Just wondering if anyone could tell me whether Sky insurance will do temporary cover notes for a couple of weeks on a 2nd car?

    My car is off the road for a few weeks having some work done, and a friend of mine is happy for me to borrow his until mine is ready.

    We (and other insurers) cannot offer cover on something you have no insurable interest in.

    Try a temporary insurer, they will not have the same issue

    I'm with Sky at the moment. Had no problem last year when I was with Admiral, I insured my Dad's old car (still in his name) when he changed his and I didn't have one, and then on a temporary cover note after I bought the S4 and was selling it for him.

    It is, but because I took my policy out when I was 24, I can't. And even though I'm now 25 the policy won't update to now allow me to.



    I tried the temporary insurers, but the best I could get was £200 for a fortnight which is a p*ss take, especially when I could insure the car for a year for £377!

    Could your mate not add you as a temporary or additional/named driver on his own policy?

    Only issue is that if you crash, it's his NCD that takes the hit.
