What is tablet insurance?

Tablet insurance protects your gadget against risks like theft, accidental damage and mechanical breakdown - either at home or while you're out and about.

It’s no secret that tablets 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. Tablet insurance helps you avoid stress and unnecessary spending by giving you peace of mind that you’re covered.

Is my tablet covered under my home insurance?
open

You may find yourself asking ‘Can you claim for a tablet on your home insurance?’. If you have home insurance, your tablet may already be covered under the same policy. This will depend on your insurance provider and the cover you initially took out, so you should check your policy documents to find out whether you need to take out additional cover.

My tablet is covered under home insurance, is this cover enough?

One of the most important things to check is the location where your tablet is covered.

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 (for example, to your uni library), you would no longer be covered under the policy. This would mean that if anything happened to your tablet whilst you were outside of your home, you couldn’t claim from your insurance and you’d have to fork out for a new device or to have it repaired.

I’m a student heading to university, will I be covered under my parent’s home insurance?

If you’re a student heading to university, whether you’re covered under your parent’s insurance or not will depend on their policy – they can check their policy details to find out.

Do I need tablet insurance if my device is under warranty?
open

If your device is new or still under warranty, you may think that you don’t need insurance. However, warranty normally only covers you for issues related to manufacturing faults. It won’t cover you for accidents such as cracked screens/accidental damage.

So if you’re looking to make sure your tablet is protected under other circumstances (such as the above, or mechanical breakdown outside of your warranty), you should take out insurance.

open

Yes you can! With Protect Your Bubble you can get a 15% Endsleigh discount on up to two gadgets, or insure three gadgets for £15.99 per month. Insuring your gadgets together is cheaper than insuring them alone.
