SERVICE UPDATE [03/04/2020]

Thank you for your support and patience while we take measures to protect our staff, due to Coronavirus safety measures.

We are open for business and here for you. Our call waiting times are currently much longer than usual (approximately 30 mins) so you may prefer to call us only if urgent. We are continuing to prioritise calls for new claims, for example, if you’ve been involved in an incident and your car’s undrivable, or your home’s uninhabitable.

For your other options, please see our homepage.

Whether you want the adrenaline rush of a skiing holiday, or fancy 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 won't 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'd be liable to pay for their own medical cover abroad. Many people believe they're covered just by carrying their European Health Identity Card (EHIC).

However, if you need medical attention the chances are only part of the costs will be taken care of. The EHIC isn't an alternative to travel insurance and won't cover potentially 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 aren't covered by Admiral Single Trip Travel Insurance including:

  • Claims made as a result of drug-use or drinking too much alcohol
  • Failure to tell us about any pre-existing medical conditions
  • Claims resulting from an illegal or criminal act carried out by the policyholder
  • 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 could still get insured. Simply call Medical Screening on 0333 234 9913.

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

Your questions answered

We're sure you'll love our great products but maybe you have a few questions. You can find answers in this section.

What is single trip travel insurance?

If you’re not a frequent traveller and will take one holiday a year, this type of cover might be better for you than an annual policy which covers numerous trips over the year.  Both give protection against things like cancelled trips, lost luggage and a host of sporting activities

When should my single trip travel insurance start?

Your cover begins on the day you selected for it to start and finish (your holiday dates), but your cancellation period starts from the date you bought the cover. 

Does travel insurance cover alcohol-related accidents?

Accidents and illnesses caused by drinking too much alcohol aren’t covered by your policy. 

Does travel insurance cover repatriation?

Yes, Admiral’s holiday insurance covers emergency medical treatment and repatriation as standard. The amount covered depends on which tier you choose – Admiral = £10m, Gold = £15m, Platinum = £20m. 

What does single trip travel insurance mean?

Single trip travel insurance covers you for one trip only, lasting up to 365 days. You must set off from and return to the UK.  

This is different to an annual travel insurance policy, which covers all the trips (up to 31 days at a time) you take in 12 months.

Can I get one-way travel insurance?

No, Admiral doesn't offer one way travel insurance. To buy our cover, you'll need to be travelling from and returning to the UK.
