Choose the tablet insurance plan that suits your lifestyle

Geek Squad offers you two distinct tablet insurance plans, with the technical support and cover you need.

Our Tablet Complete plan offers you cover both in the home and when you’re out and about, and covers theft and loss as well as accidental damage. But if you plan to only use your tablet at home and want cover should you drop, break or smash your tablet, then why not take a look at our Tablet Lite plan instead,?

We’re standing by with 24/7 tech support, whenever you face tablet troubles, and we’re ultra-speedy with our claims processing times. It’s easy to make a claim, over the phone, online or in Carphone Warehouse stores.

Name of Insurer

Aviva Insurance Limited underwrites your insurance policy. When you take out your Geek Squad plan, you enter into two agreements: one with Aviva for your insurance and one with Carphone Warehouse for Geek Squad Tech Support Solo. If one of these agreements is terminated, the other will automatically be terminated.

Period of Cover

Your period of cover for accidental damage, theft and loss* (Tablet Complete only) starts from the date this policy is purchased. Your period of cover for breakdown starts from the date the manufacturer’s warranty expires. You may choose to pay either annual or monthly premiums during the period of insurance.

If you pay your premium annually, cover continues for a period of 12 months from the date this policy was purchased. You will have the option to renew your policy for this device on each anniversary of the date this policy was purchased, up to a maximum term of five years, after which your cover will cease. If you pay monthly premiums, you will be provided with one month’s cover for each monthly premium paid and cover will continue on a month-by-month basis, up to a maximum term of five years from the date this policy was purchased for this device, after which your cover will cease. Upon replacement of your tablet as per the Replacement Tablet section, cover continues on the same basis as prior to replacement.

Making a Claim

If you need to make a claim, simply call our UK contact centre on 0800 458 6117** or 01708 609 120 between 8am-8pm Monday to Friday, 9am-6pm on Saturday and 10am-5pm on Sunday. Alternatively, please visit us in-store where we can help you make your claim. You need to let us know within 60 days of discovering the incident.

Remember for unauthorised use (Tablet Complete only) claims you must contact your network provider within 24 hours of discovering the theft.

Cancelling your Policy

You have the right to cancel your policy within 14 days of purchasing it. If you cancel your policy during this period you will be entitled to a full refund of the premium paid, provided there has been no claim or an incident likely to give rise to a claim. You can still cancel your policy after the 14-day cooling-off period. If you pay annual premiums you will be entitled to a pro-rata refund of the premium paid, calculated on the number of whole unexpired months remaining on the policy. If you pay monthly premiums you will not be entitled to any refund and cover will cease at the end of the month we were notified.

Please note, you cannot cancel your policy in a Carphone Warehouse store. If you wish to cancel your policy, you can call 0800 458 6117.

Making a Complaint

We hope that you will be very happy with the service that we provide. However, if you are unhappy with any aspect of the handling of your insurance we would encourage you, in the first instance, to seek resolution by contacting us on 0800 458 6117** or 01708 609 120, or in writing either via the Geek Squad website at or by letter addressed to Geek Squad, PO Box 358, Southampton SO 30 2PJ. If you have complained to us and you are dissatisfied with our final decision, you can refer the matter to the Financial Ombudsman Service. Following the complaints procedure does not affect your right to take legal action. For full details on our complaints procedure see your policy document.

Changes to this Agreement

During your period of cover, we may make changes to your premium, policy cover or terms and conditions of insurance. If we decide to make such a change, we will always write to you 30 days in advance.

This protection plan and other associated documentation are also available in large print, audio and Braille. If you require any of these formats please call 0800 458 6117*.

Financial Services Compensation Scheme
