Tablet insurance

If you’re always using your tablet, it’s a good idea to ensure it’s covered against loss, theft and damage with our tablet insurance. We can protect your tablet against accidental and liquid (or “toilet”) damage, and we’ll even provide cover when you go travelling abroad.

Why do I need insurance for my tablet?

If you’ve got a tablet, you’ve probably taken it with you when you go out – maybe catching up with your latest obsessions on Netflix, or keeping up-to-date on Facebook. Many of us have our whole lives on our beloved gadget, so if something happens to it when we’re on the move, it can feel like a huge, expensive inconvenience. If you’ve got a Kindle Fire HDX for example, you might have shell out as much as £150 to replace it.

If you think there’s a chance that your device could get lost, stolen or damaged while you’re out and about – or even that it could take an unexpected dip in the pool – getting tablet insurance could save you a lot of time and money.

What should I expect from my tablet insurance?

When you’re choosing your insurance, it’s important to take your daily routine into account. If you always take your tablet with you on your commute, or you have kids who take their tablet to school, you need to make sure you’ll be covered for any situation that might crop up.

Accidental and liquid damage might be a useful addition, for example. These come standard with our tablet insurance, but upgrading to Elite to include cover for theft and loss could be an essential purchase if you carry your tablet around with you.

Many tablets come with accessories like chargers, headphones and styluses, so it can be reassuring to make sure the extras are covered. Our insurance covers accessories originally supplied with the tablet as standard.

If you’re taking your tablet on holiday with you, our standard tablet insurance covers you across worldwide locations for up to 45 days, and up to 90 days with the Elite. Nice to know if you accidentally leave it on the beach!

What do we cover and how much does it cost?

For £30.99, we cover all brands of tablets worth up to £1,000 for 12 months in the UK, and for up to 45 days on locations worldwide. That’ll cover a brand new iPad Air 2 for cracked screens, mechanical problems, accidental and liquid damage, and all accessories that came with the device up to a value of £50.

If you want to upgrade to our Elite cover for £79.99, you’ll be covered worldwide for up to 90 days, and 12 months in the UK for theft, loss and originally supplied accessories up to a value of £150. You can even customise your level of excess to as low as £25 so the policy will cost you less over the course of a year.

How to claim

To claim on your tablet insurance, call the InsureandGo claims team within two working days of losing or damaging your tablet. If you’re abroad when the mishap strikes, you’ll need to call us within two working days of returning to the UK.

They will show you how to get a claim form, which you’ll need to complete and send back to us within 30 days along with copies of any relevant documentation. From there, we’ll assess your claim and, once it’s approved, send you a replacement, or repair your device. You won’t be able to claim cash on the value of your tablet, but you will be offered a new or as-new replacement that’s worth the same.

Are there any restrictions I need to know about?

Your tablet can’t be older than 12 months for us to insure it, and only one tablet can be covered per policy. You can take out additional policies to cover your other devices or your kid’s tablet. Once you’ve insured your tablet with us, you can renew your policy for as long as you have your tablet.

Claims are subject to a £25 to £100 excess which can be customised according to your requirements when you take out tablet insurance with us. You should always check your policy for a list of exclusions when you go to make a claim.
