If your car has gone missing, follow the simple steps below to track it down or, in the worst case, report it as stolen.

Step 1: Check where you left it

It sounds obvious, but if your car is missing our first advice is always to double-check where you parked it. So often a missing car, presumed stolen, is exactly where the owner left it – they simply forgot.

Many cars these days come with GPS trackers to locate them if they are lost or stolen. If this is the case for your car, please contact your dedicated tracking service before contacting us – if the car genuinely appears to have been stolen they will usually contact us on your behalf.

Step 2: Contact your local council

The second most common reason for a missing vehicle is that it has been removed by the council for illegal parking.

You can find out which council covers the area where your car was parked, if you know the postcode, here.
