Is it possible to add other drivers to an Admiral insurance policy?

You can insure as many as four drivers on an Admiral Single car policy, including the policyholder.

Does Admiral offer black box insurance?

Yes – Admiral’s LittleBox telematics device measures cornering, braking and time and length of journey, potentially earning you a discount if you prove yourself to be a safe driver.

Does Admiral offer pay-as-you-go insurance?

This provider doesn’t offer ongoing pay-as-you-go insurance.

If you opt for LittleBox telematics insurance, at the start of your policy you’ll be asked to estimate your annual mileage. If after two months it looks like you're going to go over your estimate by 25% or more, Admiral will adjust your mileage and your premium could go up – but they will contact you before making any changes. If you are charged and don't end up using the new estimated miles, they’ll reimburse the difference according to the pricing structure at the time.

Does Admiral offer van insurance?

Admiral offers four levels of van insurance cover – social, social and commuting, own goods and carriage of goods for hire and reward – so you can pick the one that suits the way you use your van.
