Help : How do I obtain Insurance on UK car with Swiss Driving Licence

Hi,

Im about to leave Switzerland end of June after three years. I currently hold a Swiss Driving licence and was forced to give up my UK one. I have too much luggage to make flying home viable therefore need to go by road. Most car hire companies do not offer Zurich to London one way as an option, at best Zurich to Calais with massive penalties for different location drop off.

Therefore, to avoid all this I would like to buy a car to drive home (plus I need a car when i return to UK). So far no UK company will touch me as I have a Swiss Licence and address.
Do anyone know of a solution ?
Insurance company who offers temporary cover ?
Done this before ?

Ive tried Zurich but not heard anything back yet. I even called The DVLA in UK but they have no interest in giving me back my UK licence until Im back living in the country.

Apologies if this question has been answered somewhere on here - i did look first.

Many thanks!!!

Insure your car in Switzerland. The UK will be covered. Get your UK license when resident there. Cancel Swiss insurance, get rebate on unpaid portion. Get insured in the UK. Live happily ever after...
