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.
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.
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.Find out more >
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.
An engineer will install a little black box behind your dashboard, to monitor your driving.
