The car insurance

Whether you have one car or five, classic car or camper van, even teenagers looking to insure their first set of wheels, we can help. Choose from Multi‑Car, Single Car or our Black Box Insurance, LittleBox. Once you’ve figured out which car insurance policy is right for you and your family, you just need to decide which level of cover you need.

Third party
This is the most basic level of cover as required by law. If you’re involved in an accident, we will pay out to the third party involved but you won’t be compensated for damage to your own vehicle.

Third party fire and theft
As well as paying out to a third party if you’re involved in an incident, this level of cover will also protect your car from damage caused by fire or theft. However, it will not pay out if your car’s damaged in another way such as a bump or crash.

Comprehensive cover
This is the most complete insurance you can buy; it includes Third Party, Fire & Theft and will pay out to repair or replace your car if it’s damaged in an accident or suffers malicious damage.

What affects insurance premiums?
There are loads of articles online telling customers how to get cheaper car insurance, but with every insurance provider rating on different things, what actually affects the amount you pay for insurance?

At Admiral, we look at factors such as your age, driving experience, driving record and the type of car you drive.

Every car in the UK is placed in an insurance group ranging from 1 to 50, 1 being the cheaper end and 50 the highest with the likes of sports cars. But it’s not as simple as a cheap car = cheap insurance, the groups also take into account driving style.

Car insurance policy types explained
It can sometimes be confusing trying to understand just what kind of car insurance you need. Essentially, there are three types of car insurance required by law. And you can choose between fully comprehensive, third-party and third-party fire and theft – the minimum cover being third party. Here we’ll explain the difference between these types of cover.


Taking out third-party only will insure you against damage to other vehicles, people or property that you might harm in an accident that was your fault. But, it doesn’t cover your own car, or you. So, say if you were to crash into someone’s property, third-party insurance would cover the repair of the building, but not your car.

Third-Party, Fire and Theft

Third-party, fire and theft does all of the above, but it also protects your car if it was damaged due to a fire or stolen.

Fully Comprehensive insurance

This covers everything that third-party and third-party fire and theft does, but, it also covers you for many more eventualities and includes both you and your vehicle. So, if you were to be in an accident that was your fault, fully comprehensive cover would protect you from any third-party claims, and any repairs to your car including the value of it if it’s written off.
