Check out the three different levels of cover you can choose from when you pick an Admiral travel insurance policy.
Admiral was launched in 1993. Originally it specialised in car insurance and was the first insurer to introduce a multi-car policy.
Since then, it has branched out into home insurance, personal loans and of course, travel insurance.
The most basic of the three available policies, Admiral, covers:
Admiral Gold covers:
Admiral Platinum covers:
Admiral offers three tiers of travel insurance to suit different budgets and cover requirements.
Choose from Admiral, Admiral Gold or Admiral Platinum on your single or multi-trip policy to get the insurance you need for your getaway.
Admiral Platinum has a five-star rating from Defaqto, Admiral Gold has a four-star rating and it’s a three-star rating for the Admiral policy.
Winter sports, cruise and golf travel insurance options are available, and many activities are covered as standard, including pony trekking, wakeboarding and surfing.
You’ll also have access to a 24-hour multilingual hotline which is there to help if you fall ill or are injured while abroad.

Certain adrenaline-spiking sports will not be covered by an Admiral travel insurance policy, so you’re on your own if you want to go bungee-jumping or jet-skiing.
You also won’t be insured for any medical emergency that occurs because of a pre-existing condition which you haven’t previously mentioned, or if your doctor has specifically advised you against travelling.
Cancelling your trip because you don’t want to travel or are worried about an epidemic will not be covered either. As well as if you don’t have the necessary documentation, visa or a valid passport to enter a country.
Check your documents carefully for the full list of what is and isn’t covered.
This depends on what you need from your insurance.
Make sure that your chosen policy gives enough cover for all the things you need it to. It’s always worth comparing Admiral travel insurance against other options available to see how it stacks up.
You may be able to get all the cover you need for your holiday at a lower price by shopping around.
Admiral’s Gold and Platinum policies have a four and five-star rating from Defaqto, respectively. This means that they have a good level of features and benefits.
Ultimately though, a travel insurance policy is only right for you if it insures you for everything you need at a price which suits your budget.
