Our Travel Insurance policy doesn't cover most claims relating to Covid-19, SARSCoV-2 or any future mutation or variation. This includes but isn't limited to cancelling or cutting short your trip, changes in FCDO advice after booking or any costs associated with being placed under quarantine in the UK or abroad. However, providing you're travelling to an area where no FCDO advice against travel exists we'll provide cover relating to medical emergencies and repatriation for Covid-19.
There's no cover under any section of our travel policies if you travel against FCDO advice.
Single Trip Insurance is the perfect way to get covered if you don't travel often. Choose from three levels of cover: Admiral, Admiral Gold or Admiral Platinum.

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.
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.
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, including:
You can claim on your travel insurance if you’ve cancelled your trip for one of these reasons:

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
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.
Accidents and illnesses caused by drinking too much alcohol aren’t covered by your policy.
Yes, Admiral’s holiday insurance covers emergency medical treatment and repatriation as standard. Our emergency assistance service may arrange for your repatriation to your home area if our medical adviser or the doctor treating you thinks it’s safe. The amount covered depends on the tier you choose:
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.
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.
