    I read another thread and it seemed everyone was US-based so didn't really get any help. Has anyone got their rMBP insured? I need theft/damage insurance as this is the most expensive thing I have ever earned! Unfortunately buying it means I don't have too much money left for that insurance.

    Anyone got insurance or any suggestions?

    When mine arrives in a few weeks, I am going to give these guys a go as I also want cover for my iPad and iPhone:

    It is quite expensive for one gadget, but when I add on everything I carry and get the discounts, it seems quite reasonable.....

    Worth checking your house insurance policy document.

    I would do this. I did a quick valuation of all my contents then reviewed my home insurance to ensure they're covered.

    Stick with home insurance it's much easier and I have heard horror stories about protectyourbubble so best to avoid.

    Don't do it... or at least read some reviews.

    My mate insured his ipad through them, his missus dropped it... spent 3 days on the phone with no one answering, 10x emails and no response.

    Waste of money if you ask me.

    You are right!
    Don't rely on this insurance company!

    Wow thanks! I was seconds away from using protectmybubble! Home contents insurance only covers me upto £1000 and only in the house which sucks.

    I hadn't thought about this...but I might be spending next year in London. Will my Apple Care, purchased in the US still be valid if anything goes wrong while there?

    No reason to not add it to the house contents insurance unless it will be used outside of the home where it could be stolen/damaged.

    my insurance covers me for my iphone, ipad and laptop outside of home and it adds very little to the actual policy.

    Give them a call to get a quote to amend your policy.

    Sounds like you're on the ball. I fly between UK & France so need extra cover which my bank provides in addition.

    You can never be too careful nowadays and I prefer to have 1 policy as it's much easier to manage.

    John Lewis Home Insurance

    These guys offer a very good policy and my rMBP is covered for theft and accidental damage both in and away from the home.
    All in the price:)
