Betfred promotions

When you are betting on your football accumulators, you would be crazy not to use a bookmaker that offers ‘acca insurance’ – this essentially means that if one team let your bet down, you would get the cost of your bet refunded.

Here at, we like to use the Betfred acca insurance for our win accumulator bets. The reason for this is that you only need to have five selections, not six like some bookies, and the odds for each selection only has to be 1/3 or bigger.



Which Bookies Offer Acca Insurance?

There are a few bookies that have stopped doing their acca insurance promotion, but Betfred are still going strong and that is why we like them. You can bet on an accumulator with five or more selections and if one team lets you down, you will get the cost of your bet back, as a free bet up to £10.

The Betfred acca insurance is only on selected leagues but it includes all the top 4 English leagues and the National League. This makes is perfect for our 3pm accumulator tips on a Saturday afternoon because the selections always come from those leagues.


How to use Betfred Acca Insurance

When you place an accumulator with five selections or more in it, you will automatically qualify for acca insurance as long as your bet fits the criteria below. Then as long as you don’t cashout your bet you just need to wait for full-time in all the matches. If one of the selections has let you down then you will trigger the acca insurance promotion and you’ll get the cost of your bet refunded up to £10.

There is no special acca insurance coupon on or the Betfred app, just pick your win-draw-win selections from the normal accumulator coupon and place your bet.

Each week you can see our football accumulator tip for the day’s matches and if you bet on it using Betfred, you will get acca insurance added to the bet, that means if one team lets us down, we’d get a free bet.

For example – bet £10 on a 20/1 5-fold accumulator.

If all five selections win your bet would be a winner and you’ll win £210.

If four of the five selections win, you get acca insurance and so you’d get your £10 back as a free bet.
