Are laptops covered by home insurance?
open

Before you take out laptop insurance, if you’re a student and your parents have home insurance, you may want to check if your laptop is covered under their existing policy.

My laptop is covered under my parent’s home insurance, is this enough?

Sometimes your laptop will be covered under your home insurance, but only in specific circumstances. For example, when you’re at home. This means that you won’t have cover when you’re anywhere outside of your house – like on nights out. You’ll need to check the specific details of your policy and then decide whether this is enough, or whether you need to protect your laptop when you’re on the move too.

Will I still have to pay an excess if I claim from my home insurance?

Yes – and home insurance excesses are usually much higher than standard gadget policies. For example, your home insurance excess may be the same amount of money as you’d pay for a brand-new laptop. Whereas Protect Your Bubble’s laptop insurance excess is usually just £75 for theft, damage and breakdown claims - check your policy to make sure. This is something to consider carefully when deciding if you should take out separate insurance.
