Cellphone insurance

Most people never leave home without their cell phones but very few of us consider whether we are adequately insured for damage or the loss of a cell phone altogether?

At Santam, we want to help you make sure you've got the right cover for your cell phone, which is why we offer cover for your smart phone as well as any other accessories (your power bank, charger, head phones, for example) if it is specified in your home insurance policy. This insurance will compensate you in the event of loss or damage to items you normally carry with you outside your home.

Should you lose your cell phone or damage it in any way, Santam offers comprehensive cover for your cell phone if it specified under the all risks section of your home or vehicle insurance policy. We also provide the option of cover under your home contents insurance policy if your cell phone is stolen from your home. An excess fee of R500 is applicable for cell phone claims.

Cover options

  • Comprehensive cover: Comprehensive cover for your cellphone when you specify under the all risks section of your home or vehicle insurance policy. 
  • Limited cover:  Covered for theft under your house contents if stolen from your home.
  • Excess: Flexible excess ranging from R350 to R500.
  • SOS services:  6 Free SOS services.
