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. We cover tablets for accidental damage under home entertainment equipment cover. However, mobiles are not covered by this policy.

You must add personal possessions cover if you want accidental damage cover for your mobile at home. You can add accidental damage to your policy in Your Insurance Account. There are no fees for changing your policy online, but your premium will increase. To make this change, follow these steps:

- After logging in, select the policy and click ‘Make changes’.
- Under ‘Your cover’ select ‘Change your contents cover’.
- We’ll then ask a few questions. If you answer no to any of the questions, contact us to change your policy.
- Choose the date you’d like the cover to start.
- When asked ‘Would you like to add accidental damage cover?’ select ‘Yes’ then click ‘Continue’.
- We’ll then show you the cost of making the change and the option of adding any optional extras to your policy.
If you’re happy with this and want to go ahead, click ‘Go to checkout’.

If you need time to think about the quote, you can exit by clicking ‘Back to your account’. We’ll save your quote for you, and you can access it by heading to ‘Your saved change quotes’ on your account page. You can exit on the last page.

You can find more information on our Home Insurance pages on our website. Exclusions and limitations apply – for full details, see your Policy Booklet.
