Myth #9: My mobile phone is covered on my home contents insurance
It’s unlikely to be covered as standard, but you might be able to extend your home insurance policy to cover items you take out of the house, such as phones, laptops and iPads. You can also take out a specific policy to cover just your mobile phone, but typically it’s more economic to add the right cover to your home insurance policy. Consider adding Personal Possessions cover for anything you want to insure outside the home. Find out more about gadget insurance.
