If you fancy the adrenaline rush of a skiing holiday, or you're taking to the seas on a cruise, you'll need to add extra cover to your policy. Our Winter Sports Upgrade or Cruise Upgrade need to be added otherwise your trip will not be covered.

If you're buying Admiral Platinum cover, cruise cover comes as standard, but you must add this or the winter sports cover upgrade to all other available tiers to be able to claim on any part of your travel insurance.

Do I need travel insurance if I have a European Health Insurance Card?

Yes, you do. Research by the Foreign Office shows 48% of holidaymakers don't realise that without travel insurance they would be liable to pay for their own medical cover abroad; a lot of people believe they're covered just by carrying their European Health Identity Card (EHIC).

However, if you need medical attention the chances are that only part of the costs will be taken care of. The EHIC is not an alternative to travel insurance; it will not cover potentially very expensive costs such as mountain rescue in ski resorts, flights back to the UK, or lost or stolen property.

What happens if my holiday is cancelled?

Depending on the cover option you choose - Admiral, Admiral Gold, or Admiral Platinum - you'll receive up to £5,000 to cover the costs of your trip

Are there any exclusions?

Like any insurance policy there are some things that are not covered by Admiral Travel Insurance including:

  • Claims made as a result of drug-use or excessive alcohol consumption
  • Failure to disclose any pre-existing medical conditions
  • Any claims resulting from an illegal or criminal act carried out by the policyholder
  • Any losses or expenses you can recover from elsewhere, or are more specifically insured by another policy

You can read the full list of exclusions in your policy documents.

What if I have a pre-existing medical condition?

If you have a pre-existing medical condition, you still may be able to get insured. Simply call Medical Screening on 0333 234 9913.

Your pre-existing medical conditions won’t be covered unless you have declared all conditions, received acceptance of this in writing, and paid any additional premium in full.
