Why should I take out Mobile Phone Insurance when I already have a 1-year manufacturer's warranty for breakdown?
Our Mobile Phone Insurance would protect you in the event of accidental damage and theft, which aren't usually covered by the manufacturer's warranty.
Please check your household insurance policy carefully to see what you are covered for. Your mobile phone may not automatically be covered on your household insurance policy for accidental damage or theft cover. You may also be covered if you hold any other insurance products so please check these too. For these types of cover, your premiums may increase as a result of a claim.
Mobile Phone Insurance can be bought from other companies such as your network provider, but they may not provide the same cover as us.
The cost of Mobile Phone Insurance is small compared to the amount you may have to pay to replace your phone.
Depending on the model and the price you paid for your mobile phone, an excess may be applicable at point of claim. If you already have mobile phone insurance, check your Policy Schedule for more detail. If you are thinking about buying mobile phone insurance, please refer to the policy excess table below.
|Handset Type||Purchase Price||Excess|
|Non-Apple Handset||£0 - £100.00||£0|
|Non-Apple Handset||£100.01 - £300.00||£30|
|Non-Apple Handset||£300.01 +||£50|
If your claim is accepted and an excess applies, you will be required to pay the excess, by credit or debit card over the telephone to proceed with the claim.
No, our Mobile Phone Insurance will continue after you've had a repair carried out and there's no limit to the number of repair requests you can make, up to the original purchase price of the product.
The process is very straightforward. Simply call us on 0844 822 4676 within 28 days. You'll be advised of the repair procedure and any actions you may be required to take.
