Who are Admiral?

Admiral launched in Cardiff in 1993, starting off with 57 members of staff and, not surprisingly, no customers. The company now has almost 11,000 employees and over 6.5 million customers, with offices in eight countries.

Admiral says it aims to provide lower insurance prices to more people, without compromising on the quality of its products or service.

It runs a 24-hour emergency helpline, so you can reach someone at any time of the day or night should the worst happen. They offer both buildings and contents cover, or you can take out combined cover.

There is a range of features offered depending on the level of cover you choose. For example, you can include boiler emergency cover, family legal protection and home emergency cover, as desired.

All Admiral employees are shareholders in the company, which helps ensure they all work towards the company performing as well as possible.

Finding the right cover

Don’t rush into buying home insurance without making sure you’ve found the right policy to suit your needs.

Remember that insurance is not a maintenance contract, so you will need to keep your home in a good state of repair, and make sure your home security is up to scratch. You won’t be covered if your home or property is damaged due to your own negligence. 

Why it pays to shop around

Never just accept the renewal quote offered by your existing home insurance provider without seeing if you can find more affordable cover elsewhere first.

You could potentially make substantial savings by switching to a different provider. You can compare home insurance policies on our home insurance channel.
