Why do I need gadget insurance?
Gadget insurance is an important addition to any trip, but especially those of a longer duration as many of us choose to take our smartphones away with us on holiday to capture our holiday snaps but also keep in touch with loved ones back home. 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 cover on your travel insurance policy to ensure your technology is safe whilst on your travels.
What does gadget insurance cover?
Alpha's gadget insurance offers protection and peace of mind for a wide range of technology with insurance cover for iPads, cover for your mobile phone whilst abroad, sat-navs, e-readers, iPods and much more.
What to look for when buying gadget insurance
To ensure your gadgets are fully protected whilst you are on holiday it is important to have the right cover in place, but what exactly do you need to look for?
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.
