Reading is often therapeutic and a hobby that many people enjoy. However, times are changing and a lot of them have switched to e-reading devices today. Handheld e-reading devices are a great way to read books in a digital format minus the effort and physical space needed to buy and store physical copies.
If you are an avid reader and carry your e-reader everywhere, you must consider getting it insured. Bajaj Finserv allows you to do just that with its Handheld E-reading Device Insurance policy. This insurance ensures comprehensive coverage for your device against loss or theft, fire and other perils, and even against accidental damage or breakdown.
Coverage up to Rs. 25,000 available for just Rs. 299.
Payments can be made through UPI payment, bank transfer, and credit/debit card transfer. We also accept payments through mobile wallets.
Handheld E-reading Device Insurance covers any damage or loss to your device due to accidental fire breakout, water leakage from pipes and tanks, lightning, explosion, implosion, riots, or strikes. Coverage is also provided for financial loss due to impact damage by vehicles, animals, and environmental disasters like floods, landslides, hurricanes, typhoons, earthquakes, etc.
In case of a robbery or burglary at your premises, leading to any damage or loss of your device, you can avail coverage, provided the burglary or robbery had taken place at the premises covered under the Certificate Of Insurance.
If you happen to damage your e-reader accidentally, you can claim coverage for the repair or replacement expenses.
Coverage is also provided for the repair and replacement expenses if your e-reader sustains a mechanical or electrical breakdown.
Please note that the coverage is as per the invoice value, up to a maximum of sum insured.
