3 Best Mobile Insurance Companies in India

by Best Tech Guru TeamNovember 6, 2015

Now-a-days smartphones and other electronic gadgets have become the most important part of our day-to-day life. The evolution of mobile phone industry has gone so far, that made smartphones so common that every other person is now carrying a smartphone. They are available from Rs. 2,000 – Rs. 1,00,000. Consumers today don’t think about the price of smartphone or any other gadget, they just buy whatever they feel is good for them, even if it costs their one month salary. And protecting such costly phones from accidental or water/fluid damage is a task. Even if we succeed in that, we can not protect it from theft or burglary.

So, how to protect your smartphones from all these damages? One way, “Insurance”. Yes getting insurance to your phone is a smart way to protect it. The smartphone or gadget insurance is provided by an insurance company to cover up the incidents like theft/loss/damage etc. to compensate the cost of the smartphone in accordance with certain terms and conditions. For example theft of a mobile from an unattended vehicle is not covered under mobile insurance or loss of phone due to personal negligence is also excluded. However, terms and conditions of insurance differ from company to company.

So let’s take a look at the 3 best mobile insurance companies in India.

1. Times Global Insurance:

    Dear Al
    I think u have done full home work about mobile insurance company. Our experience with Syska is very bad. It is not syska but it is kishka. Amount lakay kishka means kishak jana. Before giving articale I request u to go in details about the company like its owners history, Incorporatin date n their share capital. U should take details of toal insurance accepted n passed by Company like syska. Before giving articale u should take revirw from user. They r trap just giving word negligence in insurance books. Means in any case under this word they reject claim. So v request u take proper data from such company n than give artcale after proper analysie d data. Here v do not want to say all your views r not proper but take little care. Ok thnx for provide us platform for our view which v can write here.

      Move to Times Global Insurance my friend. Believe me friend this company is awesome.
      Syska is just spending all customer’s money on advertisement and promotions. Times Global Insurance is actual worth of your premium amount.

    Certainty I will also rate Times Global Insurance as No 1 company and brand for Mobile and laptop Insurance.Reason – Amount of Rs28900 credited in my bank account today..it’s unbelievable coz just today morning around 11am only I filed for a claim and around 5.45 on I got 100% credit in my account. ..awesome
    But I can’t comment about other companies as I don’t have idea about other companies and their terms and conditions.

    I dont agree with Mr koustubh not because I doubt his ability because he is saying what has been told to him . So only the real end users can tell from their own experiences whether a product is good or bad. And on that basis I would like to warn everyone that plz don’t fall into the trap of SYSKA SECURE . I am cheated . If u don’t want to lose money plz dont fall into trap of SYSKA. I dont know about other companies coz I have not used their product. Thanks guys . Use your mind and stay alert .

    I am working in a financial consultancy firm and those who did insurance from Times Global Insurance gets claim on time and others are just getting fool by companies and trying to complete their unnecessary documentation including Me.

    I was Dealt as a customer Not As a TRANSACTION“Honestly, it’s such a small thing but I really appreciate great service delivered in a delightful way. I m in the process of renewing.The business matters were efficiently and professionally handled, and I will be re-signed onto either a renewal of my current policy or another policy through Times Global Insurance shortly for my laptop. What I really wanted to emphasise was what a delightful, easy, confidence-inspiring and just hugely positive twenty minutes it was for me to get my claim. It was a stand-out experience and I was dealt with as a customer, as opposed to a transaction. Good service is rare these days.”

    Communication and staff so easily accessible and helpful – will certainly recommend Times Global Insurance. Why has it taken us so long to find such a company.
