HSBC mobile phone insurance: is it good value?

With HSBC, mobile phone insurance is available as part of a comprehensive home insurance package. A small optional extra charge will cover personal belongings, including mobile phones, luggage, clothing, jewellery, watches, cameras, musical instruments, personal money and credit and debit cards.

So if you're in the market for a wide-ranging insurance product that will provide peace of mind and reliable cover, HSBC may be for you. However, because stand alone mobile phone insurance is not available from the bank, you might want to consider other options. Here are three of the best:

There is worldwide cover for up to 90 days per year. There is no contract and you can cancel the insurance at any time. Annual iPhone cover is available for £59.99 per year.
