Have you ever gone a few days without your mobile phone? It can feel like you’ve been completely cut off – from friends, family, work, music and your social life!
That’s why mobile insurance makes such great sense. Because
for a small price every month you know that if your phone is stolen,
lost or damaged, you can get a new one fast – without
breaking the bank.
A closer look at what our insurance for mobile phones covers
From a cracked screen to dents, smashed cases and broken buttons we’ll make sure damage doesn’t hold you back.
If your phone breaks down and it’s not covered by the warranty, our insurance will protect you and get your phone fixed or replaced.
We’re always told we need to keep hydrated, but your phone doesn’t! So, if yours is damaged by liquid we’ve got you covered
Despite how much your smartphone means to you, it’s all too easy to lose it. And with thieves loving smartphones too, theft is a real possibility. So we give you next day replacement after an approved claim so you can get on with life.
With coverage from only $7.99/month it won’t break the bank to protect yourself.
Warranties typically cover mechanical breakdown and not much else. So, just because your phone is new and has a warranty don’t assume you’re covered. Loss, theft and liquid damage are often excluded.
The case for mobile insurance
Smartphones are pretty amazing devices when you think about them. They’re diaries, web browsers, games console, music centre, library, social media hubs, route finders, watches, notebooks… you can even make calls with them!
In just a few short years they’ve gone from a novelty to a necessity – and today being without your smartphone leaves you feeling lost. But they do get lost – and broken, damaged or stolen. If that happens there are two big things to think about: How do I get a new phone fast? And how do I pay for it?
The answer is insurance. Many people rely on their home insurance or warranty for coverage, but we thought we’d give you a bigger picture of the mobile insurance market so you can make an informed decision.
Is a mobile phone warranty worth relying on?
The answer is, only if you think your phone might have a mechanical breakdown. Warranties aren’t there for lost, damaged or stolen phones. They simply guarantee to fix your phone if it has a mechanical failure. And the warranty is limited typically only lasting for 12 to 18 months.
Many home insurance policies cover gadgets. Which is great you may think. Well, check the small print first, or you could be in for a big shock if you need to make a claim.
First and foremost look at the excesses you might have to pay if you claim on your home insurance. Typically these excesses are larger – and could run into hundreds of dollars.
Then have a think about the impact of your claim on your premium. If that goes up after you’ve claimed you could once again be left out of pocket.
Next, check the exclusions on your home insurance policy - and just how far you’re covered for. Some home insurance coverage ends when you walk out the door! And given that your mobile goes everywhere with you, having insurance that doesn’t is very helpful.
Finally, just what kind of a service do they offer? If it’s going to take weeks to make claim you could be left adrift – or having to fund your new phone purchase yourself. Dedicated insurance for mobile phones, like Protect Your Bubble’s, offers 24 hour replacement for approved claims.
