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's why we provide extra Hire Vehicle 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 28 days. In the event that your car is written off, we will provide you with a similar sized car, up to a maximum of 2.0L 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 £400 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.

Your questions answered
Why do I need Hire Vehicle 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 Vehicle Cover, either a hire car or £400 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'll be happy to help.
How long does my Admiral Hire Vehicle Cover last?
Your Hire Vehicle Cover runs alongside your Admiral motor insurance policy, so it will normally last for 12 months.
I have a disability and my car is modified to fit this. Can you provide a vehicle with the same modifications?
If you drive a modified vehicle, we’ll always do our best to give you a replacement with the same modifications to keep you on the road.
If this isn’t possible, you’ll still be entitled to the £400 cash payment which can be used to pay for transport costs while you arrange a replacement vehicle.
