It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… you'll have put up your tree and started to break out the mince pies, or begun (or even finished) the dreaded Christmas shop.
Unless you’re a certain jolly fella with a long white beard then this could be stressful - Christmas is expensive right? After all, the latest smartphone can cost over £1400, so getting your perfect gift protected might be the last thing on your mind. But did you know:
90% of teens have a smartphone, so the latest devices could be the ideal Christmas gift. But 16-24 year olds are also the age group most likely to damage their device.
A big night out is the second biggest cause of screen damage, 1/5 of which comes from trying to snap that perfect selfie.
As many as 1 in 5 mobile phone users have damaged their screen within one month of ownership.1
So, when it costs up to £327 to fix the latest smartphone screen, insurance might be a savvier option than you first thought!2
With Full Cover3 , if your phone is lost, stolen, accidentally damaged or breaks down, you could get a replacement the next day, as well as a free Minute One Premium Accessories bundle worth £39.99 on eligible devices. Or if you just want to protect it against the bumps and scrapes of life, we also have Damage Cover now at £5.60 a month on selected handsets for a limited time only.
