What is AutoTrust Tyre Insurance?

AutoTrust Tyre Insurance protects you against the unforeseen costs of having to replace or repair the tyres on your vehicle prematurely, as a result of accidental damage, puncture or malicious damage by a third party, resulting in the sudden and unforeseen deflation of a tyre or for sidewall damage that does not immediately lead to sudden deflation provided that the tyre is deemed illegal by UK MOT testing standards, subject to the terms, exclusions and conditions as detailed in your policy document.

Sidewall damage that does not immediately lead to sudden deflation is also covered, provided that the tyre is deemed illegal as determined by UK MOT testing standards. Tyre Insurance covers the cost of replacement or repair of the four tyres on your vehicle plus the spare.

This policy has a maximum claim limit per tyre of either £125 or £300 including VAT for standard tyres, depending on which policy type has been chosen and £450 including VAT for run-flat tyres. You may claim for up to 5 tyre(s) during the policy period.
