Are my mobile phone and tablet covered with Tesco Bank Home Insurance?

Tesco Bank Home Insurance covers mobile phones and tablets for theft within the home (tablets are covered for accidental damage under home entertainment equipment cover as standard).

If you need your mobile covered for accidental damage when at home, you would need to add personal possessions cover (which includes cover for items away from the home).

You can add accidental damage to your policy via Your Insurance Account, which is available 24 hours a day. There will be no fee for making a change to your policy (when accepted via Your Insurance Account), but there will be an increase in premium for adding this to your policy.

  • Once you log in, select the relevant policy
  • Click on 'Make Changes' on the home page
  • Click 'Change your accidental damage cover'
  • Select the date you want your change to take effect from, read the statements carefully and if accepted, click 'Confirm'
  • Click 'Yes' under the question 'Would you like to add accidental damage cover?' then scroll down and click 'Continue'
  • You will then be presented with the cost to make the change and the option of adding any optional extras to your policy whilst making the change
  • If you're happy and want to go ahead, click 'Go to checkout'. If you do not want to go ahead, click 'Back to your account'

If you do not want go ahead and need some time to think about the quote, this will be stored and can be accessed via 'Your saved change quotes' on your account page.
