Worried that one or two legs might let down an otherwise awesome acca? Don’t worry the bookies have got your back, with acca insurance an increasingly common incentive to bet with them.
Offers vary, and most insurance is only available on certain bet types or for bets that contain a certain number of folds. We’ve detailed how acca insurance offers work for a variety of the best betting sites.
Place a five-fold acca or greater in the Win-Draw-Win or Both Teams to Score (BTTS) markets and if one leg fails to come in they will refund you with a free bet worth up to £25 (if your stake is higher you will only be refunded up to that amount). Insurance is open to both new and existing customers and BetVictor also offer a price promise for accas of five-folds or above – promising to match any other bookie’s odds.

A trusted UK bookmaker, Betfred have a similar offer to BetVictor in terms of acca insurance.

The major difference is that your accumulator can include bets across any available football market.

What is acca insurance?
In general acca insurance is only available with bookmakers if your slip contains a certain number of bets, or ‘folds’.
Some bookmakers also have tiers of insurance, so the number of legs that can lose and you still be insured increases with the number of bets in your accumulator. Acca insurance is usually paid out in the form of your original stake being returned as a free bet.
Not all acca insurance is the same though, and we’ve pulled together this handy comparison to profile the insurance offers made by the best betting sites.
How do you use acca insurance?
As mentioned, with most bookmakers your bet will qualify for insurance if it meets the criteria they set.
If your bet has the correct number of folds and one team lets you down, most bookies will give you money back as a free bet matching your original stake, or up to a certain maximum.
Sometimes there are also restrictions of the leagues you can use, so its worth checking to ensure your bet is covered. And some bookies will also have minimum odds for each fold of the bet if you are to qualify for insurance.
