Helpful information at a glance

You can take a full look at our terms and conditions in the policy booklet. Remember you have 30 days from purchasing your new device from Carphone Warehouse in which to take out Geek Squad Replace Insurance.

Name of Insurer

Aviva Insurance Limited underwrites your insurance policy. 

Period of Cover

You are covered from the moment you sign up and pay. Cover runs for one or two years from the date the plan is purchased or until you have made one claim and your product has been replaced, whichever happens earlier, after which your cover will cease and no refund of premium will be given.

Making a Claim

If you need to make a claim, simply visit your local Carphone Warehouse store – you’ll find your nearest one to you on our store locator page. Alternatively, you can register your claim by calling 0800 458 6117*. All claims must be made within 60 days of discovering the incident.

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

Replacement Product

If we replace your product, we will use reasonable efforts to replace it with the same make and model as your original product. Upon replacement of your product, or payment to you instead of replacement, your cover will end and you will not be entitled to any refund of your premium.

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 in writing either via the Geek Squad website at or by letter addressed to Geek Squad, PO Box 358, Southampton SO30 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.

Changes to this Agreement

During your period of cover we may, in certain circumstances, make changes to your 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.

Large Print, Audio and Braille 

This Geek Squad Replace 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

Aviva is a member of the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). You may be entitled to compensation from this scheme if Aviva cannot meet its obligations, depending on the type of insurance and the circumstances of your claim.

You can find a complete list of your policy's terms and conditions in the policy booklet.
