Temporary Car Insurance in Kansas

If you're seeking flexibility, you could be considering a temporary car insurance policy. In truth, short-term car insurance agreements are rare for several reasons.

Most major auto insurers do not draw up contracts for periods shorter than six months. Because car insurance coverage is required by law in most places in the US, changing policies by the month can be a risky proposition. Additionally, you risk having gaps in your car insurance history by changing policies often, which can lead to higher rates in the long run.

Fortunately, auto insurance agreements typically last for just six months. This short duration allows auto insurance companies to frequently “re-rate” — or re-price — your premium with your current driving history and personal profile.

It also provides the perfect opportunity for you to reset your policy by exploring other companies. Finding quotes on the Internet costs nothing, and there isn't a penalty for moving between insurers at the completion of your policy period — or even mid-term, assuming you never let your coverage lapse.

The flexible nature of car insurance makes it relatively easy to acquire with limited advance notice. If you require an insurance policy to take a car off of the lot, shopping for coverage for a long-term car rental or seeking insurance on a car you don't own but drive regularly, consider purchasing a policy and cutting the term short as needed.
