Frequently asked questions
What high risk items do I need to let you know about?
Our definition of high risk items can be found in your policy booklet so please check that carefully, but it includes things such as jewellery, watches, precious metals, works of art, sporting equipment, collectables, furs and musical instruments.
If you have any high risk items over £1,000 you will need to let us know about each of these items individually so we can add them to your policy. You can then choose to cover each item away from the home.
Do I get personal possessions cover as standard?
You get personal possessions cover up to £2,000 as standard with Admiral Platinum cover but you can choose a higher amount than that if needed. You can add personal possessions cover to our Admiral Home and Admiral Gold.
It covers items which belong to you or your family, which are portable and normally worn, used or carried outside the home in everyday life such as handbags, headphones, tablets and also includes sports, musical and camping equipment. Your items will be covered up to the amount you require, subject to maximum limits.
If you have any pedal cycles that are worth under £350 and would like them covered while away from the home, be sure to include them in your personal possessions total.
If you have specified any high risk items over £1,000, they will be covered separately up to the amount you require per item. Our definition of high risk items can be found in your policy booklet.

What is an Excess and how do I know what excess I have on my policy?
An excess is the amount you must pay in the event of any claim. Just check your policy schedule for details of the excess that applies for the incident you are claiming for. More than one excess may apply and total excess may vary depending on the cause of the loss or damage.
Your excess will either be deducted from settlement of your claim, or alternatively, our appointed supplier will collect this amount from you.
How will I know if a claim is covered by my policy?
You can find details of your policy cover in your Policy Booklet along with your Home Policy Schedule. You may find this helpful before ringing us to report a claim.
However, if you would prefer to call us, one of our dedicated Claim Handlers will be happy to help and advise you further on your policy cover.
How long will it take to settle my claim?
It all depends on the circumstances - some claims are more straightforward than others. When you call to register a claim, our claim handlers will try to give you an idea of the timescales involved.
Do I need to keep damaged goods for my claim?
Yes, please keep any damaged items in a safe place. They may need to be inspected or used as evidence of proof of ownership - this may help us settle your claim faster.
Will pedal cycles be covered under my policy?
Pedal cycles worth under £350 are covered while they are in the home if you have taken contents cover with us.
If you have any pedal cycles that are worth under £350 and would like them covered while away from the home, make sure you include them in your personal possessions total.
If you have a pedal cycle worth more than £350 you will need to let us know so we can add this to your policy. You must then opt to have this cycle covered away from home if required.
Are mobile phones covered under my policy?
Mobile phones are covered up to the amount shown on your policy schedule. We will cover the handset but not mobile phone charges, loss of airtime or any damage caused by liquids.
