Tablet insurance: Your questions answered

When protecting your gadgets and belongings, it’s important to understand what covers are available, and whether you actually need cover in the first place! Here we’ve answered your frequently asked questions about tablet insurance.

What is tablet insurance?
open

It’s no secret that gadgets can be expensive to replace - but they’re also designed to be used on the go, which means they tend to be prone to drops, scratches and general wear and tear.

Tablet insurance is designed to protect your tablet against theft, loss, accidental and liquid damage, either at home or while you're out and about – although the cover provided will depend on your insurer and the level of protection you choose when you get a quote.

Can I insure a second-hand tablet?
open

Yes, we are able to provide cover for second-hand tablets provided they’re not more than three years old when cover for it begins under your tablet protection policy. 

What else does tablet insurance cover?
open

Digital Download cover

Up to £1,000 for digital downloads

How do I get insurance for my tablet?
open

Getting a price for your tablet insurance with Endsleigh takes less than two minutes. All you need to do is click here to get a quote, and let us know the following information:

  • Details about your occupation (student, graduate or other)
  • The address where you’ll be insuring your gadgets
  • Your personal details, such as your name and address
  • When you would like cover to start
  • Your gadget’s details (make, model and value)
  • The level of cover you require (Essential, Advanced or Premium)

You can then choose to add optional covers to your policy - such as contents cover or bicycle protection - should you need them.

Do you cover broken tablet screens?
open

Yes, our tablet insurance policies provide cover for cracked tablet screens as standard, including our Essential, Advanced and Premium policies.

Is my tablet covered under my home insurance?
open

Whether your tablet is covered under your home insurance will depend on your insurance provider, so you should check your policy documents to find out whether you need to take out additional cover. If you’re a student heading to university, your belongings might be covered under your parents’ home insurance.

If your gadgets are covered under your home insurance, they will usually only be covered while they’re inside your property – so if you wanted to take your tablet out and about with you, you would no longer be covered under the policy.

It’s also worth considering your home insurance excess when deciding whether to take out additional cover for your tablet. For example, if the excess on your home insurance is £250 but your tablet is worth less than this, it may not be worth making a claim on your home insurance. The excesses on tablet insurance, on the other hand, are typically much lower – with Endsleigh, you’ll only pay the first £50 of any claim, plus any voluntary excess.
