We have become inseparable from our gadgets such as smartphones and tablets. We use them to keep in touch with our friends and family, take pictures and share them on social media, or have fun playing games.

Electronic gadgets are an integral part of our lives, but they’re also quite expensive. Carrying such gadgets around with you means that you’re vulnerable to dangers such as theft, loss or damage.

Quality smartphones or tablets are expensive, and their loss can have a massive impact on your wallet - not to mention the inconvenience of not having a mobile phone or tablet to use in your daily life. Moreover, many gadgets come as part of contracts signed with service providers. For example, if you’ve got an iPhone by agreeing to sign a contract, you’ll have to keep paying for it even when you damage or lose your phone.

That’s why it’s smart to take action right now and protect yourself against such risk. You can do that by covering your gadgets with a particular type of insurance called Gadget Insurance.

As part of our gadget cover, you can insure any type of gadget such as a smartphone or tablet. If the gadget you would like to insure is not in our list, give us a call to see if we can add it.
