What Does Gadget Insurance Cover?

In today’s fast-paced world, our gadgets are more than just devices; they’re essential companions in our daily adventures. But what happens when the unexpected strikes? That’s where our gadget insurance comes into play. Here’s a snapshot of the peace of mind we offer:
1. Accidental Damage: Life is full of surprises, but our coverage ensures that accidental drops or unforeseen events won’t leave you disconnected. Whether it’s a shattered screen or a more complex internal issue, we’ve got you covered.

2. Liquid Damage: Spills happen, but they shouldn’t spell the end for your device. Our policy covers damage caused by unexpected encounters with liquids.

3. Breakdown: If your gadget decides to take an unscheduled break after the manufacturer’s warranty has expired, don’t worry. Our breakdown coverage steps in when your warranty steps out.

4. Cracked Screens: The world isn’t always kind to your gadget’s screen. We ensure that a cracked screen doesn’t mean a cracked relationship with your device.

5. Theft (Plus and Premium Only): In the unfortunate event that your gadget is stolen, rest easy knowing we’re here to help.

6. Airtime Abuse (Plus and Premium Only): If your device is used for unauthorized calls after it’s stolen, we’ll cover the costs, keeping your bill safe from unexpected surprises.

7. Accidental Loss (Premium Only): Sometimes gadgets have a mind of their own and go missing. If you’ve taken all reasonable precautions and still can’t find your device, our accidental loss coverage is your safety net.

8. Accessories Cover: Because we know it’s not just about the gadget – the accessories matter too.
Keep in mind, terms and conditions apply to all coverages, ensuring we provide the best fit for your needs.
Exclusions to Remember: While we aim to cover you in most situations, there are exclusions. These include claims during the first fourteen days of your policy, repairs by unauthorised centres, wear and tear, and when reasonable precautions aren’t taken. For the full list of what’s not covered, refer to our policy documentation.
Our gadget insurance is designed to give you peace of mind, knowing that we’ve got your back, no matter what life throws your way. With coverage options tailored to meet a range of needs, we ensure your digital life remains uninterrupted.
