Our gadget cover goes where you go

Wherever in the world you take your gadgets, make sure they’re insured.

  • Protect your smartphone, laptop, tablet and digital camera from loss, theft and damage
  • You’re covered whether you’re at home or anywhere else in the world
  • Available if you’re insuring your contents with us (including starter contents)

What’s covered

With gadget cover, you can carry your gadgets around with you and they’ll be covered against loss, theft or damage not just at home but anywhere in the world. Your phone’s protected against unauthorised network charges and if it’s stolen, we’ll always aim to provide a refurbished replacement within 48 hours.

You're not just covered, you're Barclaycovered.
