Accidental loss or damage cover for your personal possessions

You can protect valuables and personal belongings worth up to £2,000 each (and money up to £750) against accidental loss or damage away from home. So you'll be covered if you lose a mobile phone or if your bicycle is stolen.

You'll be covered for items such as:

  • watches and jewellery

  • cameras

  • laptops and tablet computers

  • mobile phones

  • portable music players

  • clothes and luggage

You'll be covered for legal costs for pursuing, defending and managing disputes.

  • Access to a 24/7 legal helpline

  • Up to £100,000 cover for legal expenses

  • Plus access to a range of free online legal documents – including a free will, checked by a qualified lawyer

What's covered?

We'll provide cover where it's more likely than not your claim will be successful for disputes in relation to:

  • Death, physical injury or clinical negligence

  • Contract disputes for goods and services, or buying and selling your property

  • Protection of property (excluding boundary disputes)
