Mobile Phone Insurance for Children

90% of British children between the ages of 8 and 14 now own a mobile phone*, and with the new school year having just started it's more important than ever to keep their mobile phones safe.

If you haven't already, you might want to consider insuring your child's phone so that it can be repaired or replaced should it be dropped, lost or stolen. Most insurance providers will only cover people 18 years and over, but at Tinhat that doesn't stop you from getting your child's phone covered. All of our policies cover use by immediate family, and so you can insure the phone in your name and still cover its use buy your child - whether at home, out and about or at school or college.

If your child reaches 18 during the policy period you can easily switch the policy holder, and we don't charge any administration fee for this.

Key exclusions

The usual exclusions apply, so you should read the policy terms and conditions before purchasing. To ensure that your child's phone is covered it's important that they take reasonable precautions to prevent their phone from being damaged, lost or stolen. For example, if your child's mobile phone was stolen while left in an unsecured locker, the phone wouldn't be covered.

How much does it cost?

Insuring your child's phone in this way costs no more than our standard insurance policies, and premiums start from as little as £4.49 a month. Click the button below to insure your child's phone in your name today:
