Car Hire

Stay mobile if your car's stolen or written off

When you buy AA comprehensive car insurance, you get a courtesy car as standard while yours is being repaired after an accident.

If it's stolen or written off, a hire vehicle is available through our Car Hire policy.1 Here's what you get:
  • Hire vehicle provided by a national car hire network.
  • The vehicle will be similar in size to your own car, up to a 2.0 litre engine.
  • Continuous use of the car for up to 21 days (if third party, fire and theft cover, up to 14 days).
  • No limit on claims.

    1 Car Hire is optional for Silver and Gold car insurance but is included with Platinum car insurance. You can add Car Hire when you get a quote, and any time during the policy year.

    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 between 18 and 99 when the policy starts (between 23 and 99 in Northern Ireland and Isle of Man).

    If you claim for a hire car, you'll need to pay a refundable fuel or security deposit using a credit or debit card in your name.
