Car Hire for extra cover

Stay mobile if your car is stolen or written off

How would you get around if your car was stolen or written off following an accident? Comprehensive insurance only provides a car to use while your own car receives insured repairs.

When you add Car Hire cover to a comprehensive car insurance policy you'll have use of a replacement hire car for up to 21 days in the UK, if your car is written off or stolen and not recovered.1

If you rely on your car to get to work, shop, or to take the kids to school, Car Hire cover provides reassurance at an affordable price, keeping you on the road while your claim is settled.

Additional drivers named on your car insurance policy will also be insured to drive the hire car if they have a full UK driving licence, and are aged between 18 and 99 when the policy starts.

Car Hire benefits

  • receive a hire car for up to 21 days (comprehensive policies)
  • the hire car will be a Category A model (ie with a 1.0 litre engine)
  • hire car delivered by a national car hire network
  • no limit on car hire claims
