Choose from three great cover options
Admiral offers three levels of Breakdown Cover so you can choose the right one for you.
All levels include:
As long as you don’t intentionally start the engine once you've noticed you've mis-fuelled, your fuel tank will be drained at the roadside. If unsafe to do so, you will be taken to a garage to complete the work.
If your car can't be repaired the same day, we’ll pay up to £150 per person towards the cost of one night’s accommodation in the event of a breakdown and your car is being repaired (up to a maximum of £600).
UK Onward Travel Allowance
If your car can’t be repaired the same day, we’ll provide you with a hire vehicle or pay up to £500 towards the cost of alternative transport.

How the Breakdown service works
Once you've added Admiral Breakdown Cover to your policy it couldn't be easier to use. When you call for breakdown assistance you will be asked for:
- Your insurance policy number
- Your registration, make and model of car
- Your location so you can be found
- Your phone number to keep you informed
We need this number to call or text you who will be attending your incident and how long they'll be.
