How can I insure a car for a day?

Is it possible to get car insurance for a day? I don't own a car, but I'm planning to borrow my sister's car for special occasion.

Answer
“Unfortunately, it’s unlikely that you’ll find a car insurance company that will offer car insurance for a day.
Most reputable car insurance companies only offer policies in six or twelve-month terms. In some instances, you may be able to get a policy for a month, but that’s rare.
If you are looking for temporary car insurance and don’t own a vehicle, you may want to consider a non-owner car insurance policy. Non-owner policies are made specifically for those who don’t own a vehicle but borrow or rent them frequently. A non-owner policy will cover you in any vehicle that you rent or borrow.
If you aren’t interested in a non-owner policy, speak with your sister. Her car insurance will likely cover permissive use of her vehicle. That means, as long as you are borrowing her car with permission, her insurance should cover you. She can call her car insurance company to confirm.
