Admiral Pet Insurance specialises in cover for your cat or dog
According to the Association of British Insurers, the cost of the average pet insurance claim is over £700, which is nearly three times the average pet insurance policy. The number and cost of claims have risen by 9% from 2014 to 2015.
The cost of getting quality veterinary treatment can quickly run into thousands of pounds, so having the peace of mind your pet is covered for life-saving treatment can be invaluable.
We recognise that your dog or cat is a loved and valued member of the family and so deserve the best care.
Whether you are looking for dog insurance, cat insurance or both, Admiral Pet Insurance offers a range of cover options to suit pet owners across the country.
What is included?
Lifetime Cover is the most comprehensive type of policy we provide. It covers accidents and illnesses up to the total policy limit, with no time restrictions. At each renewal the policy limit for veterinary fees is reset, so if you've reached your policy limit the previous term, you can start claiming again.
Lifetime Cover is subject to premiums being up to date, policy remaining in force and insurer offering renewal. Choose between our Classic, Premier and Premier Plus products.
Maximum Benefit Cover
Maximum Benefit Cover provides an allowance of veterinary fees for each condition. Each condition will continue to be covered with no time limit, until you have reached the policy limit for that condition. Once that limit has been exhausted, those conditions will no longer be covered.
12 Month Cover
A 12 Month policy provides an allowance of veterinary fees for a period of 12 months from the date the condition is first treated. When either the veterinary fee limit or the 12 months has been used up, the condition you claimed for will become excluded.
Accident Only Cover
An Accident Only policy provides cover purely for accidents. Each accident is covered up to the policy limit during the policy term. Each accident will continue to be covered until you reach the policy limit.

What is lifetime cover?
Lifetime cover means you can make continued claims for illnesses and injuries up to the maximum level of cover of vets fees covered by your insurance policy. This level of cover is reset at each renewal subject to premiums being up to date, policy remaining in force and renewal being offered.

An excess of £85 is deducted from your benefit for each individual illness or accidental injury treated. For pets over six-years-old an additional 10% will be deducted for Veterinary Fees, Complementary Medicine, Cruciate Ligament Damage, Special Diet and Dentistry (where these are covered) for each claim payment. A £250 excess applies once per claim for Third Party Liability cover (dogs only).
