Should your phone be lost, stolen or damaged the devices alone can cost £500 if not more to replace and your holiday snaps... well they are irreplaceable. This is why it is important to have suitable gadget insurance coverage on your travel insurance policy to ensure your technology is safe whilst on your travels.

Alpha's gadget insurance offers protection and peace of mind for a wide range of technology with insurance cover for Mobile/smartphones, tablets, laptops and much more.

What should I look for when buying gadget insurance?

Firstly, consider how much it would cost to replace your gadget should it be lost, stolen or damaged - is the amount of gadget insurance available high enough to cover the cost of this? Also, take a look to see if there is a maximum claim value per item or not - Alpha's gadget insurance has no single item limit!

Does it cover things such as loss, theft, accidental loss, water and liquid damage? Think about what elements you need your gadget to be covered for and check what is included in the policy.
