Cellphone insurance

Most people never leave home without their phones but very few of us consider whether we are adequately prepared for damage or loss with cellphone insurance.

At Santam, we want to help you make sure you've got the right mobile insurance, which is why we offer cover for your smartphone as well as any other accessories (your power bank, charger, headphones, 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. Comparing cellphone insurance quotes? Speak to us.
