Your questions answered

How do I make a claim?

Please refer to our Make a Claim page for details on how you can claim.

What is No Claims Bonus?

Every year you drive without making a claim or having a claim upheld against you, earns you an additional year of No Claims Bonus (NCB). For every year of claim free driving, you earn a discount off the cost of your renewal. If you have already earned No Claims Bonus with your previous insurer, we will ask you to send us written proof (usually a renewal notice or Proof of No Claims Bonus letter from your previous insurer). Your No Claims Bonus builds up to a maximum of 15 years.

What is an excess?

An excess is the amount you must pay in the event of any claim, regardless of who's to blame for the incident. The excess will vary depending on the car that is covered, the age and experience of the drivers on your policy and if you have opted to take protected or guaranteed No Claims Bonus protection. Details of your policy excess can be found on the reverse of your Policy Schedule.

Will I get a courtesy car if my classic car needs repairs after an accident or is stolen? 

Due to the unique nature of each classic car claim we can't always give you a courtesy car while yours is being repaired after an accident. 

If you know you’ll need a replacement car if your classic car is written off (either from an accident or a theft) then you can add our Hire Vehicle Cover optional upgrade to your comprehensive or third party, fire & theft cover.

Am I covered if I lose my keys or if they’re stolen?

With our comprehensive or third party, fire & theft insurance, we’ll pay up to £300 towards the cost of replacing the locks if your car keys are lost or stolen from somewhere other than your car. 

If you need a higher level of cover, Admiral Keycare Cover provides up to £2,000 of cover for the costs of replacement keys and locks including arranging locksmith services, if yours have been lost, stolen or broken.

What is the process for getting an agreed valuation?

So we can provide you with an agreed valuation, we need you to complete an agreed value form and send it to us with six photographs of your vehicle (one of the interior, four of the exterior and one of the engine).

Your car’s agreed valuation is fixed for two policy terms.

How do I send my classic car documents to you?

You have three options: 

  1. Email: Please forward your documents or any queries to agreedvalue@admiralgroup.co.uk 
  2. Post: Send them to FREEPOST EUI LTD. Please note future communication may come from our Customer Services email address
  3. Online (customers who receive their policy documents by email): Your policy document email will also include a link which will take you to our secure online submission form. Here you can enter all the relevant information, along with your photographs

What happens if I don’t return my documents within the time frame?

Until you receive your agreed value certificate from us, your vehicle remains at market value. If you don’t send the documents, we won’t be able to provide a valuation and you’ll lose the classic car discount. 

If you need an extension for any reason, please contact us

What happens if the information provided on the agreed value form differs from that given when I bought my cover?

In some cases, you may provide us with information that doesn’t match what was originally provided when you bought your insurance. Examples of this include undeclared modifications or an increase in value. Any new or different information may result in an additional charge.

Can I revalue my car at any time?

Yes, please contact us if you feel the vehicle valuation is no longer accurate. To revalue your vehicle, we’ll need you to send another completed form, along with new photographs.
