What isn’t covered?

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.

Is Admiral travel insurance right for me?

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.

How good is Admiral travel cover?

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.
