Who is Admiral?
Admiral is a Cardiff-based, FTSE 100 financial services company offering cover to a broad range of customers, from those under 25 to much older and more experienced drivers.
Set up back in 1993, Admiral has been voted Best Car Insurance Provider for eight years running by The Personal Finance Awards. The thrust of Admiral’s market position is lower car insurance premiums for as many as possible, wherever they live.
The value-for-money emphasis criss-crosses comprehensive and third-party, fire & theft policies with benefits for full cover on some policies, including a 24-hour emergency helpline, a courtesy car and windscreen protection*.
They also offer multi-car insurance. Policies can include family members living at different locations, helping you and your family leverage your collective buying power to get a discount for everyone.
There’s a brand app to help you manage your cover via your smartphone. There’s also plenty of social media presence, including some useful guides to keeping safe on the road and protecting your premium.
*Windscreen protection is excluded from Admiral Essential car insurance policies.
Generally, there’s a lack of jargon around a wide product range. Admiral has consistently picked up awards for a positive workplace culture, embracing diversity issues like BAME, LGBT+ rights and well-being, not to mention ageism.
In 2020 the company was voted fourth-best workplace in the UK. Admiral also has a strong corporate social responsibility commitment and a solid record of charity giving.
The publicly-owned Welsh company floated on the London Stock Exchange in 2004. It now employs more than 10,000 people. Admiral’s brands include Elephant and Veygo.
