Temporary car insurance for a visitor to the UK holding an international driving licence

My partner holds a Turkish International driving licence and I would like to lend him my car when he visits England. I have my own insurance policy on the car, they have already told me that they will not cover him. I have now looked at numerous companies. Who will offer temporary insurance to an International Licence holder, visiting the UK? Please help...

As your research has shown you, there are no insurers on the market at the moment which will provide short term car insurance cover for people coming from abroad even if they hold an international driving licence. Temporary insurance is a risky business in itself and offering this policy to foreigners is considered more on the scale of loss profit for insurers.

If you really want your partner to drive, then it would be best for him to hire a car because then he will be covered under rental car insurance as opposed to private insurance that you are looking for.
