The Basics

+ Cuvva is for borrowing a car from a friend or family member...

You should use Cuvva for stuff like:

  • Sharing long journeys
  • Weekend trips away
  • Running errands
  • Needing a car in an emergency
  • Airport drop offs and pickups
  • Driving to/from events or sports matches

Cuvva can't be used for:

  • Insuring self drive rentals
  • Providing a taxi service i.e. 'Hire or reward'
  • Business or commercial use
  • Driving outside Great Britain
  • Racetrack days
+ Cuvva is just for you...

Cuvva is totally personal. It's downloaded on your phone, linked to your credit/debit card and can only be used to get cover for you. Comprende?

+ Cuvva is for right now. Your insurance starts immediately...

Cuvva is instant. No waiting necessary - tap in your details and you're good to drive straight away.

+ Cuvva can only be used to drive cars that have an annual insurance policy...

At the moment you can't use Cuvva as the only policy for a car when you want to use it. That's because in 2011 Continuous Insurance Enforcement (CIE) was brought in to UK law, which means it's illegal to have a vehicle in the UK unless it is permanently insured. Every car under UK law must be insured continuously or declared SORN (Statutory Off-Road Notification), even if it's always parked on the side of the road and never driven.

+ If I run out of time and still need cover...

Don't worry! You can extend your cover using the app. But we do recommend you go for 50% more time than you need - remember, traffic happens...
