When choosing mobile phone insurance, it can be a hassle trying to decide which insurance is right for you. As the market expands, there are a huge range of policies to choose from – all with varying levels of cover. How do you decide which insurer is best for you?

To help you make an informed decision, we’ve assessed the benefits and disadvantages of the most common types of insurance provider. Take a look at how our policies compare to mobile phone insurance from Barclays below.

Bank accounts

In return for a monthly fee of £14.50, you can receive Barclays mobile phone insurance included in the Tech Pack which will cover 4 devices each worth up to £1,500. If you have a packaged account, this is also a good option for couples and families as all phones can be covered under the same policy.

Barclays phone insurance is quite comprehensive. It will cover up to 4 devices, will cover them worldwide for damage, theft and loss. However, they limit the number of Loss and Theft claims you can make in a 12 month period whereas Mobile Phone Insurance Direct offers unlimited claims. Moreover, you have to agree to at least a 6-month contract which means you cannot end the contract earlier. MPID do not tie customers to contracts and you can cancel your policy any time. Barclays Tech Pack can be a good choice for households with over 2 phones but if you are looking to getting insurance for yourself or insure 2 devices, MPID will more often than not work out cheaper than Barclays Tech Pack.
