What options do you have for impounded car insurance?
With an impounded vehicle there are two main options for your insurance, and these depend on what you would like to do with your vehicle after it’s released.

30 day short term impounded car insurance / impounded van insurance policy
Alternative insurance offers a range of short term policies designed to release an impounded vehicle.
- Range of short term policies
- Third party only
- Insured only to drive unless a provisional or revoked licence holder
- Policy holder must be the registered keeper and legal owner of the impounded car

Annual Impounded Car Insurance

Another option available when getting impounded car insurance would be to take out an annual impound insurance policy.
