Whether you use your laptop for work or social use, it’s a good idea to get insurance for it. Taking out adequate cover for your laptop will give you peace of mind knowing that your machine, and all the important items it contains, is protected against theft, accidental damage and liquid damage, no matter where you are in the world.
Laptop theft is becoming a growing problem in the UK. Thieves tend to target those who commute to work with their laptops or take them on their travels so it is important to make sure you never leave your stuff unattended when you’re out and about. If, however, the worst does happen and your laptop is stolen, an insurance policy will ensure you are fully protected.
Accidental damage is something that unfortunately cannot be avoided. No matter how careful you are with your laptop, a friend, work colleague or complete stranger could accidentally damage it, leaving you with a hefty repair bill.
If your laptop is damaged by accident, a laptop cover policy will cover the cost of repairing or replacing it, saving you money and hassle.
Laptops can easily be damaged and rendered unusable by liquid spillages. Just a few drops of water, juice, coffee, beer or any other liquid on your screen or keyboard can lead to a number of costly problems, especially if they come into contact with the hard drive or other components.
Fortunately, liquid damage cover can be included in laptop insurance, giving you peace of mind in the event of a spillage.
A laptop policy can come with international global cover, meaning that if your laptop is stolen or damaged whilst abroad on business or on a holiday, you’ll be protected against the costs of replacing or repairing your device. All trips abroad are covered as long as they are temporary visits.
