Do I need Travel Insurance including Gadget Cover?

As almost everyone travels with at the very least their mobile phone, it is probably a good idea to add gadget cover when purchasing your travel insurance. For more expensive gadgets it is extremely important that you include gadget cover on your travel insurance policy as if they were to be lost stolen or accidentally damaged you will be left substantially out of pocket.

It is also important to understand that there is also common confusion around gadget cover and travel insurance whereby customers think that it is covered as standard whereas this is often not the case on many travel insurance products.

Tips for Travelling with Gadgets – Keeping Them Safe

As you’ll know, gadgets are often fragile objects so when travelling with them it is a good idea to take some precautions to prevent them being damaged, lost or stolen.

  1. Lock them up and keep them out of sight – if you’re leaving your gadgets in your accommodation at any time during your trip, where possible, lock them in the safe provided in many hotel rooms. If there is not a safe provided, then a lockable drawer or cupboard is the next best option. If that fails, try your best to keep them out of sight in any way you can or lock them in a suitcase.

  2. Use protective accessories – screen protectors, protective cases and carry bags can provide your gadgets with some from cracked screens, or other common damage. This is probably a good idea even if you are not travelling with your gadgets!

  3. Don’t leave them unattended – If you’re taking your gadget out with you, don’t leave them unattended at any time and don’t leave them on the plane!


There are also some other tips unrelated to damage, loss or theft, that you may find useful:

  1. Don’t forget your chargers – this one is pretty simple, just don’t forget your chargers! Otherwise you will find yourself having to fork out for new ones whilst you’re abroad or upon your return. Make sure to check your room before you leave!

  2. Be careful with data roaming – roaming data charges can often mount up to extortionate costs. So be aware of the charges that you are subject to from you service provider before travelling. Always try to use free or public Wi-Fi hotpots in cafes or anywhere else that it is available. For UK residents, roaming charges should normally be included in your mobile data plan however there is no guarantee that his will be the case post Brexit, 31st December 2020.

  3. Back up your photos and videos – or anything else that is important to you. Losing mobile phones can often be an upsetting experience not only because of the financial implications but because of the sentimental value of the memories held in the photo library. To avoid this heartache, back everything up to an external har drive or to Cloud storage before you travel!
