Whether you’re driving a small van for a delivery business or a larger van hauling furniture around, having a black box fitted could make all the difference in helping to get your van on the road at a more affordable price.
Insurance can be expensive, particularly van insurance for young drivers just starting out. But with Admiral LittleBox for Van, we aim to make insurance affordable for our customers.
What is van black box insurance?
Black box insurance – sometimes called van telematics insurance - is a small device fitted out-of-sight in your vehicle which looks at driving style and measures things like braking and speed to give you a driving score.
The information collected helps rewards safe drivers with a reduced premium - the better you drive, the more you save.
LittleBox gives you more control over the cost of your insurance and helps good drivers get a fairer price. If you don’t drive very well and struggle to get a good score, you may not get a discount at renewal.
Great reasons to choose Admiral Van Insurance with black box
Free Theft Tracking
Theft Tracking is included as standard on active LittleBox policies. So if your van's stolen, all you need to do is call our claims team, with your crime reference number, and we'll speak to the police to help give you the best chance possible of getting your van back.
No mileage restrictions
You choose your maximum mileage – it just needs to be over 1,900 miles a year.
We cover vans of all sizes
We offer insurance for small, transit and larger vans up to 3.5 tonnes.
Is black box van insurance for me?
While a telematics policy is often aimed at young, new drivers, Admiral black box insurance can be for any safe driver looking for a reduced premium, no matter what age!
Young drivers are often charged more for insurance as they’re viewed as a higher risk, but a black box gives you the chance to show you’re a good driver.
The van telematics technology monitors how and when you drive along with lots of other risk factors to help calculate your driving score. Get a good driving score and you could get a cheaper insurance price at renewal.
You can drive anytime you like with LittleBox, but regular late-night driving (10pm-4am) will reduce your overall driving score, which means you may not get as big a discount at renewal. So if you need to drive your van overnight, it may not be the best option for you.
Will you cover my van?
We can fit LittleBox into most vans on the market; we cover vans, pick-ups and tippers up to 3.5 tonnes.
Your van must:
- Be under 14-years-old
- Be worth more than £750
- Cover over 1,900 miles a year
If you're unsure, simply give one of our team a call on 0333 234 0038 to double check.

Your questions answered
What happens if I change my van?
We’ll remotely deactivate the LittleBox in your old van and arrange installation of a new unit in your new van (charges apply)
Where is the box fitted and will it damage my van?
It's fitted at no extra cost to you, out of sight behind the van’s dash. It's fitted 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 takes around 40 minutes.
Can I remove LittleBox from my van?
No, once you take out the policy and the black box is installed, it stays in your van for the duration of your policy.
