We cover home office equipment as standard under our contents cover up to a max of €4,000 in any one policy year. This would include computers, laptops and printers.
There is no need to contact us to let us know you are working from home as your home office equipment is covered as explained above.
And don’t worry, if the company you work for has provided you with a computer or laptop, they can be covered also.
Until the 31st May 2021, Allianz are providing accidental damage cover for home office equipment at no extra charge if you don’t already have this cover, usually an additional premium would apply for this cover. This means that between 20th March 2020 and 31st May 2021, if you accidentally damage your home office equipment, it may be covered by your home insurance. Please note, if you claim for damage to your computer or laptop it may affect your renewal premium.
If the company you work for has provided you with a computer or laptop to work from home and you need to make a claim for damage to it, we will request a letter from your company confirming that you are legally responsible for the computer or laptop and that the company will not be paying the cost of replacing it.
