What is ALA Keycare?

There’s nothing more frustrating than losing your keys and being locked out of your home or vehicle.

ALA Keycare can help!

We provide cover for lost or stolen keys, replacement locks, locksmith charges and more, with a 24-hour helpline, open 365 days a year.

We offer two kinds of key fobs to help insure your keys, depending on your preference – SmartFob which links up to your phone making your keys even easier to find or our standard key ring fob which gives clear instructions on how to get missing keys back to their owner.


Can I buy ALA Keycare?

This policy can be purchased in conjunction with an ALA GAP policy or you can buy it as a standalone policy.

Cover can only be purchased where there is no pre-existing event which may give rise to a claim.

Our Keycare policy with a SmartFob is £36 and our Keycare policy with the standard key ring fob is £24.


What is not covered?

Any keys not attached to the SmartFob or the standard Keycare fob

Claims which are not reported within 30 days of the incident

Any amount for which you do not have a valid receipt or invoice

Costs relating to a damaged or broken key or lock

Costs relating to wear and tear

Locks or keys which are of a higher standard than the original

Costs or charges where a locksmith or other tradesman has been arranged and you fail to attend


More than one replacement key for vehicle keys, more than 3 replacement keys for house keys

How do I make a claim?

If you need to make a claim on your ALA Keycare policy, please contact our UK based claim team on 0345 303 0550 as soon as possible and within 30 days of the incident. This line is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

If your keys have been stolen please report to the police immediately and obtain a crime reference number.

What is SmartFob?

SmartFob is a new way to keep an eye on your keys when you have a Keycare policy with us.

Using Bluetooth technology the SmartFob is synced with your mobile device, so if you ever have that ‘uh oh’ moment – your keys can be easily located within seconds. Opting to have a Smartfob, alongside the Keycare app, instead of our more traditional key ring fob is a good option for those who perhaps make a habit of misplacing their keys.

You can of course opt to stick with our standard fob if that’s more your thing.
