Great service every step of the way

Over 91% of our customers said they would renew based on the claims service (Jan 2017 – Jun 2017).

Free Theft Tracking

As long as LittleBox is active, our Theft Tracking service is included as standard. If your car is stolen, all you need to do is call our Admiral claims team with your crime reference number, and we will liaise with the Police to ensure you have the best chance possible of recovering your car. LittleBox Theft Tracking has recovered over £380,000 of cars between August 2015 and July 2016.

Is black box insurance for me?

As long as you meet the criteria LittleBox is great for almost everyone, but if you are facing high premiums then you could get a discount just by having one of our clever little boxes fitted in your car.

The technology in LittleBox monitors how you drive, and as long as you drive safely you could be rewarded with lower premiums.

If you feel you're being punished for other people's bad driving, and particularly if you're a first time driver or young driver then LittleBox could be for you.

Isn't it like having 'Big Brother' in my car?

Although LittleBox collects location information it's not sent through to us in real time - we really don't mind how often you drive to your local takeaway!

But the good news is, because the box now comes with a tracker fitted, if your car is stolen, we'll be able to help track its location.

What kind of information does the black box collect?

The technology and data used for Telematics insurance is used to help drivers get a fair price for their car insurance - not to try and catch them out.

LittleBox collects information about how and when you drive, along with other risk factors to calculate your driving score.

We use that information to work out what kind of driver you are, and ultimately, how safe you are behind the wheel.

Don't worry, we only share the information with the data companies who provide the services under the policy, like the LittleBox provider - your information won't be sold or shared with anyone else.

The information collected by the box during your policy can help you get a lower insurance price at renewal if we find you to be a safe driver.

Where is the box fitted and will it damage my car?

It's fitted at no extra cost to you, out of sight behind your dashboard, by a trained technician and won't affect the vehicle's warranty.

You'll be contacted by our installation team to book an appointment with the engineer, they come out to you and the fitting only takes around 40 minutes.

See what kind of driver you are

With the use of your own personal online dashboard, you'll get regular updates on how good a driver you are and tips on how you can improve your driving score.
