Archive for the ‘phone insurance’ tag
Three UK Rescue is brought to customers in cooperation with Asurion. The idea is to provide extensive insurance policy that would meet all possible needs of Three’s customers. You could insure your phone against pet damage or flushing a phone in the toilet, as well as lending to friends and family. You can have your phone replaced internationally for 20 pounds extra. While domestic replacement should happen next day with the same model delivered(as long as the claim is not accepted during the weekend).
Three Rescue is also an application to increase customer protection. The app can back up your data, track your lost phone online, remotely set off a sound alarm if you lost your phone or even completely wipe the content of your phone.
Monthly premium can cost from as little as £2 for the most basic phone to £10 for state-of-the-art devices like iPhone 5s or Samsung Galaxy S4.
Margie Waltasaari from Three UK said ‘Mobile phone insurance has a poor reputation due to slow processes, widespread cover exemptions and low service levels. We believe Three Rescue will address that through a combination of great service and the extra steps we take to help our customers to get their mobile lives back.’
Quick look on the insurance offers on the British market show that there are plenty of insurers who provide cover from between £3.99 and £6.99 a month. The cheapest basic covers include accidental damage (up to £500) , overseas cover and cover for immediate family. However, if you have a top smartphone like the newest iPhone 4S it might be more profitable to pick a full cover (for around £6.99 a month or £55-59 a year). Such policy protects you from accidental damage, loss and theft, but also covers unauthorized calls and mobile wallet protection.
