Why buy mobile phone insurance for your business?
If you're supplying your staff with mobile phones you probably have a very good idea of how much they will cost to replace. The latest iPhone can cost as much as £789, and most flagship models from other manufacturers cost over £500.
You might already have a general insurance policy that covers all IT equipment, but the excess could be very large and it might cost more to claim on the policy than the phone is even worth. With a dedicated phone insurance policy from Tinhat, your excess could be as low as £25 per claim.
We offer business insurance for all makes and model of smartphone - including iPhone, Samsung, HTC, and Sony. The premium is largely determined by the value of the phone, and our plans start from as little as £1.99 a month (or £21.89 annually).
Accidental damage (including liquid damage)
Covers accidentally cracked screens and any other damage that prevents your phones from functioning normally.
Covers you for repairs and replacements to your staff's phones if they suddenly stop working outside the manufacturer's warranty.
This policy insures your staff for the use of your gadgets anywhere in the world for up to 90 days in any 1 year.
Covers you for phones being stolen, as long as they are in your staff's possession or stored in a secure place out of sight.
If your phones are lost or stolen we will cover up to £2,500 of unauthorised calls.
Accidental loss (additional £1 a month)
Covers you for the replacement of your phones if your staff accidentally lose them.
To find out more about what we do and don't cover, please read our terms and conditions.
You're likely considering dedicated phone insurance because your current policy excesses are too high. At Tinhat, our excesses are £25 for phones valued up to £250 or £50 for phones valued up to £999.

Frequently asked questions
Here are a few of our most frequently asked questions about our business phone insurance, plus some links to more information if you need it:
Q. How are business policies different to consumer policies?
Our business phone insurance policies are almost exactly the same as our consumer policies. The only difference is that they don't cover use by your staff's immediate family. On the plus side, we are usually able to offer preferential rates to our business customers.
Q. What gadgets do you cover?
We can provide business insurance for any type of mobile phone or tablet, as long as it was purchased new in the UK. The devices also need to be less than 18 months old at the time that you purchase the policy in order to be covered.
Q. What's mechanical breakdown cover?
If your phones develop a mechanical fault and stop working this will usually be covered under the manufacturer's warranty. This warranty usually lasts 2 years from the date that you purchased the phone, and during this period it should be your first port of call for this type of issue. If your phone breaks down outside your warranty period, your Tinhat policy has you covered, and will insure you for this type of problem for up to 5 years.
Q. How can I pay for my insurance?
Businesses can pay for their insurance policy in one of two ways. You can pay monthly by direct debit or annually by credit or debit card. If you pay annually you'll get 12 months of cover for the price of 11, on top of any additional discount that we're able to offer you as a business customer.
Q. Do you insure refurbished phones?
Yes, we can insure refurbished mobile phones as long as they are bought directly from the manufacturer or a UK mobile phone network. Click here to find out more about our refurbished phone insurance.
Q. If I buy insurance today, when will my cover start?
If you order your insurance today, and your phones are less than 6 months old, your cover will start immediately. If your mobiles are more than 6 months at the time you take out the insurance then you won't be covered for any incident occurring during the first 14 days of your policy.
Q. Can I cancel at any time?
Yes! We believe we offer some of the best phone insurance in the UK, but if you don't need our cover anymore or you decide to leave us you can cancel your policy at any time. If you cancel within the first 14 days of buying your policy then you'll get a full refund of any premium paid. After this period the following applies:
- If you're paying monthly and haven't made any claims we'll simply stop taking direct debit payments and you'll be covered up to the end of your billing month. If however you have made a claim in the first 12 months and decide to cancel you will still need to pay any remaining premiums for the 12-month contract.
- If you're paying annually and wish to cancel then you'll receive a pro-rata refund, minus a £10 administration fee.
