If you’re seeking some flexibility as far as your auto insurance is concerned, you could be interested in a temporary car insurancepolicy. Truth is, temporary car insurance agreements are rare for a few reasons.

Many many auto insurers don’t provide policy terms for periods shorter than six months. Since car insurance is required by law in every state but one, there's some risk associated with swapping policies every month. Additionally, you risk having gaps in your insurance record by making abrupt moves between policies, which could lead to higher prices in the long run.

There's some good news: car insurance policies typically last for just six months. This quick duration allows car insurance companies to frequently “re-rate” — or re-price — your policy using your current driving history and demographics.

The six-month mark is also a great opportunity for you to reassess your policy and considering other car insurance companies. Shopping rates on the Internet is quick and complimentary, and there’s no penalty for switching car insurance companies between policy terms — or mid-policy, assuming you never let your insurance lapse.

The flexible nature of car insurance makes it relatively easy to buy with limited advance notice. If you need an insurance policy to take a new vehicle off the lot, attempting to get insurance for a longer-term car rental or seeking insurance on a car you don't own but drive often, consider purchasing a policy and ending the agreement as needed.
