What does car insurance cover?

Car insurance falls into three main levels of cover

  • Comprehensive car insurance
  • Third party, fire and theft
  • Third party only

While the amount of cover you get depends on which level you choose – comprehensive offers the most cover, third party the least – there are a few things that come as standard with Admiral Car Insurance no matter which level you choose:

  • Cover to drive in Europe for up to 90 days
  • Driving other cars (subject to eligibility)
  • Named driver No Claims Bonus

Comprehensive car insurance

This is the highest level of insurance you can buy. It includes third party, fire & theft and covers the cost of repairing or replacing your car if it’s involved in an accident or damaged maliciously. It also comes with extra benefits including windscreen cover, extended cover for driving outside the UK, and a courtesy car to replace yours if it’s involved in an accident or damaged maliciously.

Third party, fire and theft

As well as paying out to a third party if you’re involved in an incident, this level of cover protects your car from damage caused by fire or theft. However, it doesn't cover the cost if your car’s damaged in another way, such as a crash.

Third party only

This is the most basic level of cover required by law. If you’re involved in an accident, we’ll pay out to the other driver involved but you won’t be able to claim for damage to your car.

What affects car insurance prices?

Lots of articles online tell customers how to get cheap car insurance. Every insurance provider sets their prices on different things, so what actually affects the amount you pay for insurance?

At Admiral, we look at a number of factors including:

  • Age
  • Driving experience
  • Driving record (claims and convictions)
  • The type of car you drive
  • Car insurance groups

Your car insurance price explained takes you through how Admiral calculates your policy.

Car insurance groups

Every car in the UK is placed in an insurance group ranging from 1 to 50, with 1 being the lowest and 50 the highest. Cars in the lower groups are cheaper to insure while those close to the 50 mark will be more expensive.

How are car insurance groups calculated?

Car insurance groups are broadly set by The Group Rating Panel and administered by Thatcham Research; our pricing team considers these recommendations when calculating our car insurance prices.

As well as looking at the cost of time and parts to return a car to its pre-accident condition, Thatcham’s team looks at these things to help group cars:

Repair costs and times

Motor vehicle repair costs account for over half of all the money paid out in motor insurance claims. Longer repair times mean higher costs, and the greater likelihood of a higher group rating

New car values

The price of new cars including different trim levels is considered in terms replacement and repair costs

Parts prices

A standard list of 23 parts most often damaged in an accident and their costs. Lower costs mean more chance of a lower group

Performance

0-60mph and top speed are important. Claims stats show high performance cars often result in more frequent insurance claims so will usually be ranked higher

Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB)

By helping to reduce low-speed front to rear accidents, cars fitted with AEB as standard may have a lower insurance rating

Car security

Standard fitted security such high-security door locks, alarms and alloy wheel locking devices can help put cars into lower groups

Each time I rang (needed to stop a renewal as I was scrapping my old car and taking out a new policy on new car) staff were very helpful, pleasant, friendly and polite. Could have hot my new policy a bit cheaper elsewhere but decided to stick with Admiral for third year in a row.
