    Does anyone know where I can get insurance for the iPad, and how much it would cost? I did a quick Google but the "iPad insurance" sites that came up look like quickly knocked-up scams.

    Thanks in advance :)

    I'm in the same boat, the only website I've found is a site called Protect My Bubble £7.99 a month I think it is.

    Let me know if you find any others :)

    You can insure mobile computing devices on your household insurance.

    Best bet would be to add to home contents insurance... Likely worldwide cover for a small premium. Most will be accidental damage too if that is on the rest of your contents.

    I have £4k worldwide with up to £1500 w/out having to specify items costs about £30 per year from memory but this will vary.

    Good luck

    Inluding theft/damage/etc outside the house? Will they charge extra for that?

    GoCompare tells me I can do £400+ gadgets at £5.49 a month.

    All household contents insurance companies will cover a mobile computing device for a small premium. And yes it does cover outside use.

    I'll check that out, I assume it'll work out cheaper than a seperate policy, thanks :)

    No problems, remember to check the value covered and the excess. Most will offer a no excess add-on to your current policy, difference will be an extra quid or so a month vs an excess policy.

    Not sure, it wanted me to fill in my personal details before it would tell me, so I didn't bother.

    Try Fujitsu Insurance. They seem to have a reasonable premium with no excess.

    You can probably get it through your bank. Double check what their insurance deals are. I have 3GS phone and iPad gadget insurance through Natwest.

    Thanks for this, I think I'm going to go with them, one thing though, it doesn't say anywhere on their site what they actually cover though...

    Nevermind, I found it, just set up insurance with them, they pretty much cover you for everything except mechanical faults (doesn't matter as apple do cover this under the 1 year warranty) and it was just £39 for a year, that works out at about £3.25 a month :D
