We help you stay on the road and get on with life

Could you manage without a car if yours was written off or stolen and unrecovered? With Admiral comprehensive car insurance, you get a 'Class A' courtesy car if yours is being repaired at an Admiral approved garage. But unfortunately you don't get a courtesy car if yours is stolen or written off after an incident. That is why we provide extra Hire Car Cover as an upgrade for either your Third Party Fire & Theft or Comprehensive policy.

Choice of benefits

Adding our hire car upgrade to your Admiral policy gives you peace of mind and the convenience of a hire car for up to three weeks. In the event that your car is written off, we will provide you with a similar sized car, up to a maximum of 2.2 litres and up to seven seats. You will also receive the car if yours is stolen and unrecovered. Or if you think you can manage without your car, you can choose £250 alternative instead to cover your own travel expenses. These benefits are only available where costs for replacement vehicle hire are not recoverable from any third party.

Why do I need Hire Car Cover?

It's surprising how much we rely on our cars; if you've ever been without yours for more than a day or two, you'll know just how awkward it can be. With Hire Car Cover, either a hire car or £250 can help you get to work, do the school run or carry on with life as normal.

What if I need the hire car for longer?

You can extend the hire period by contacting Auxillis Limited on 0344 571 2715 and they will be happy to help.

How long does my Admiral Hire Car Cover last?

Your Hire Car Cover runs alongside your Admiral motor insurance policy. So it will normally last for 12 or 10 months (depending on whether you have a standard or a Bonus Accelerator motor insurance policy).

Once we confirm that your car has been written off, you'll be able to choose whether you'd prefer the hire car or the £250. If you choose the hire car, we'll advise Auxillis Limited, who administer our Hire Car Cover, and will then contact you to arrange a convenient time and place to deliver your hire car. Auxillis Services Limited, who provides the hire car, will then deliver your vehicle. Or if you choose the £250 we'll arrange for this to be paid to you.
