Glasses, a necessary evil in many cases. Expensive to buy and easy to break. But when you need glasses for your work, for driving or for reading you really can’t go a day without them. It’s important to insure your glasses to prevent any nasty surprise bills.
As part of your home insurance policy from HomeProtect, the contents insurance part of your policy covers your glasses and prescription sunglasses for damage and theft from within the home.
Cover away from the home
To be insured for damage to your glasses away from the home and theft of your spectacles away from the home, simply include the value of your glasses in the total amount to be insured under general possessions cover, when you get your online quote.
You can also opt for accidental damage cover which will cover you if you sit on your glasses and break the glasses frames, or your toddler knocks your spectacles off your face, then you’re going to need help getting them repaired or replaced quickly so you can get on with your life.
Our Claims team work hard to turn around claims very quickly. There’s only a £100 compulsory excess applied to the policy, meaning that the first £100 of your new or repaired pair of glasses is paid by you, but the rest is covered by the home insurance policy.
