We may be able to start your policy right away!
When you see your options for start dates, if today's date is available with the word 'Now' after it, it means as soon as you make payment, your policy will be live.
If this option is not available, the soonest we can start your policy will be one minute past midnight of the following day.
If you need a single day of cover to tide you over, there are many providers of temporary insurance that you could use.
We can't make any recommendations, and you should do your own research to find the best policy. To help you on your way, you could look at Tempcover.
Many car dealers will also be able to provide you with some 'drive away' insurance.
