(PRWEB UK) 8 March 2012
Tesco Compare now offers consumers gadget insurance as the comparison site joins forces with providers, Protectyourbubble.com and Gadget Cover.
The move marks Tesco Compare’s continual drive to add new partners and services that will give consumers greater choice when looking for deals on insurance, money and utilities products. Protectyourbubble.com and Gadget Cover have been providing insurance for many years, offering cover for devices such as iPhones, sat navs, video cameras, iPads, games consoles and iPods in the event of theft, loss or damage.
Typical types of insurance available from the providers include cover for multiple gadgets, and usage abroad - which can be individually-tailored.
Vikki Macleod, Tesco Compare’s Commercial Director, said: “We are pleased to be working with both providers. Alongside giving a broader selection of services, we are introducing people to more bespoke forms of insurance. Gadgets are expensive to replace and mean a lot to people. That’s why consumers can search for a gadget insurance deal.”
People are carrying around more gadgets than ever before increasing the risk of theft, loss and breakage. Gadgets, particularly mobile phones, are vital to people and an integral part of their life. Whether the gadget is a laptop, smart phone or camera, many people have at least one gadget they rely on considerably. Insurance can ease the financial burden if someone’s beloved gadget is lost, stolen or accidentally damaged.
Vikki Macleod summed up: “Teaming up with both providers underlines our commitment to expanding our offering alongside our existing services. Introducing people to gadget insurance demonstrates our dedication to evolving with the needs of the modern customer.”
