Laptop Insurance Cover

Laptops may have a hard exterior, but underneath they're sensitive little souls. That's why it pays to protect them against those Oh No! moments.

Here for those Oh No! Moments

  • Coffee spills can cripple productivity

    Knocking half a cup of coffee over your keypad is enough to cause a catastrophe
  • They're expensive to replace

    Replacing a decent laptop can cost several hundred pounds, more for Macbooks. Deep joy
  • Mechanical breakdowns are common

    Overheating, blank screens, malfunctions. No fun to be had here, folks.
  • They get dropped in transit

    Laptops are portable, but they don't bounce - damage can be devastating!

Why use Protect Your Gadget?

You've gotta love a laptop. The essential ‘go to’ gadget for work and study. Whatever brand, whatever shape or size, these trusty blighters go through the mill. But they have one thing in common – we depend on them A LOT.

They are our mobile offices, classrooms, meeting rooms, lecture theatres – the uses go on and on. More of us now work from our laps than ever before. Offices are dumping desktop PCs for the laptop – which also means they get taken here, there and everywhere and the risk for loss, theft or damage increases.

Picture this, you've dropped your Dell runing for the train - it's smashed up, bashed up and beyond repair. What now? Protecting your laptop, whether you've an Apple Macbook, a Dell, HP, Samsung or something else can create a mountain of headaches, financially, professionally and possibly academically. So, ensuring the right level of protection is in place is vital to give you peace of mind.

Common Questions

  • 1.Why should I use Protect Your Gadget to find laptop, MacBook or iMac insurance?
    Protect Your Gadget is the only direct online comparison service operating within the field of laptop and desktop computer insurance in the UK. We search the laptop insurance market to find you the deal that best suits you and your budget. With access to many providers, who are competing against each other in an emerging market, Protect Your Gadget not only helps you compare the best rates around in one easy hit, but also guides you through the cover purchase process too.
  • 2.My laptop/Macbook/iMac is still under warranty. Why do I need separate cover?
    While you may get 12 months of cover under a manufacturer's warranty - which covers you for mechanical breakdowns - you won't be covered during those 12 months for cracked screens, liquid damage, loss, accidental damage or theft. Even extended warranties generally don't cover these events.
  • 3.Will my laptop/MacBook be covered away from home?
    Yes, your laptop or Macbook will typically be covered at home and away. Please be aware that some insurers will not cover laptops, MacBooks and desktop computers such as the iMac against loss. We ask you at the point of quote whether you wish to cover loss, and we'll therefore only show you quotes from providers who are able to offer this cover.
  • 4.I have a laptop/MacBook and a desktop computer. Can I insure them on the same policy?
    Yes you can. You can also add on your other valuable and important devices on too, such as tablets, mobiles, cameras, games consoles and headphones, providing they are no older than 36 months (for some insurers gadgets must be no older than 12 months). The really good news is that it's often very cost effective to insure multiple items rather than each item separately.
