If you're seeking flexibility, you could be considering a temporary car insurance policy. But short-term car insurance is uncommon for multiple reasons.

Some major insurers won't offer contracts for less than six months. Since auto insurance is required in most places in the US, it can be risky to jump between policies. You also run the risk of creating gaps in your insurance record by making abrupt moves between policies, leading to higher rates down the road.

Thankfully, auto insurance contracts typically run for just half of a year. This hasty turnaround allows auto insurance companies to frequently “re-rate” — or re-price — the policy based on your present driving profile and demographic info.

The end of a policy period also provides the perfect opportunity for you to reevaluate your situation and shopping other insurers. Comparing rates online is easy and free, and there is no penalty for swapping auto insurance companies between policies — or even in the middle of your policy period, assuming you never let your coverage lapse.

The flexible nature of car insurance makes it relatively easy to purchase with little notice. If you require a policy before you can drive a car away, attempting to get a policy for a longer-term rental or seeking coverage for a car you don't own but regularly drive, consider purchasing a policy and cutting the term short as needed.

The short-term nature of an auto insurance policy increases the importance of staying in-the-know and ready to shop.
