Your handbag isn’t just an accessory, it’s a valuable item that you take everywhere. Think of what you carry in your handbag; your keys and purse, including cash, perfume, make-up, sunglasses, your mobile phone, iPod and tablet. Now think of what it would cost to replace all of those items if your bag was lost or stolen.
Bag insurance is a no-brainer when you add up the value of the items you carry every day, especially if you use a designer handbag which is also of high value. Handbags aren’t covered as standard under your home insurance. So all the more reason to have additional cover, paying particular attention to cover for personal possessions outside the home.
Why should I insure my handbag?
It’s important to think what items you regularly use when you’re away from home, as contents insurance policies will often only cover items within the property. In which case, it’s a good idea to specify valuable items on your policy so that you can have true peace of mind that the devices and objects you use daily are protected against loss, damage or theft wherever you are.
At HomeProtect, gadgets such as tablets and mobile phones need to be specified to be properly insured.
Our policy also includes a single item limit of £1,500. If you are carrying valuables that exceed this amount then you must specify them individually in your policy . Note that, in some cases, increasing contents cover will cause a referral.
Worldwide bag insurance and briefcase cover
For complete peace of mind all year round, include the items you carry with you when travelling on your policy. We can cover you for most of these items whilst you’re abroad. See what’s covered in the policy booklet.
