My sister who lives in florida and has done so for 30 years is coming over this month, and I'd like to get her insured to drive my car. She has a florida Dl now, but passed her test here when she was 17. My insurance product doesn't allow me to add her temporarily (aviva) what other options do I have?

thanks - theyve refused a quote

If insurers are reluctant to cover it may be an indication that it would be very unwise for her to risk driving here?

What an absolute racket the Insurance Industry is.

Seems strange really because I went to Florida a couple of years ago and the people we stayed with put us on their car insurance.  I`m surprised it doesn't work the other way around.

Thinking about the Anne Sacoolas / Harry Dunne case.....

Canary - I don't see how insurers deciding there are some risks they don't want to cover is a "racket"?


there's a short list of temporary insurers halfway down this page (inluding the one that's already refused ☹)

are you a member of the AA or RAC? I bet they could advise.
