Your cover options

If you need anything other than standard car insurance, we’ve got lots of different insurance policies for you to pick from.


The most wide-ranging cover is comprehensive. It offers extras such as a courtesy car, child car seat cover and personal belongings cover.

Admiral’s comprehensive cover also includes windscreen claims, which means you don’t need to worry about taking out separate cover.

Third party, fire and theft

You’ll be compensated if your car is damaged by fire or theft, but not if you’re in an accident.

Admiral will only pay out to the other party if you’re at fault and you’ll have to find the money to replace or repair your own car yourself.

Third party only

If you’re at fault in a car accident, third party only insurance will pay out to the other party involved but you won’t be compensated.

Admiral Insurance was the first provider in the UK to offer multi-car cover. If you have more than one car at your home address, or if your immediate family uses more than one car between them, they can all be covered by one multi-car policy.

If someone on your multi-car policy is in an accident, they’ll be held liable and it won’t affect your no-claims bonus – even if you’re the sole policyholder.
