Frequently asked questions

Do I still need Gadget Insurance if I already have a manufacturer’s warranty?
Tap to read answer
A. While you may get 12 months of coverage with your manufacturer’s warranty – which covers you for mechanical breakdowns – you won’t be covered during those 12 months for cracked screens, liquid damage, accidental damage or theft. Even extended warranties generally don’t cover these events. We cover all of them as standard.
Will you cover shipping charges if my item needs repairs?
Tap to read answer
A. Yes – we’ll send you prepaid packaging and cover the shipping costs if we confirm that your device is in need of repairs.
Who does my policy cover?
Tap to read answer

A. Parents can insure their children's gadget(s) on their behalf.

The cover of your gadget applies to you as the person who purchased the policy and your immediate family – including your mother, father, son, daughter, husband, wife, partner, brother, sister, grandparent or grandchild who permanently lives at the given address (as well as sons or daughters living away for some of the year whilst at college or university).

Are cosmetic damages covered?
Tap to read answer
A. We only cover damage if it stops the normal functioning of your gadget. Cracked screens are covered, but if your gadget has only suffered a scratch or dent, and still works as expected, then we will not repair or replace it.
