    Mobile Phone Insurance - Short Period 7th Dec 17 at 7:47 PM
    Hi,

    Does anyone know if there are any companies that can insure my Samsung S8 for just 1 week only?

    I'm travelling to Barcelona and it would put my mind at ease whilst there.

    I purely want the cover for my holiday.

    Any suggestions welcome.

    You might find this article useful: https://www.moneysavingexpert.com/insurance/cheap-mobile-phone-insurance

    You could take one of the packaged bank accounts providing mobile insurance and switch it out for a bonus/downgrade it to a free account when you return.

    Check that it isn't covered by any travel insurance you might have first.

    It would be simply not cost effective to issue a policy for one week. As above, check your existing holiday insurance and home contents insurance for options.
    If you PIN and SIM-lock it, then the only risk is the loss of the phone itself, which is trivial compared to the call costs that will be racked up overnight if it's stolen.
