Jan 8, 2021

Jakarta, 8 January, 2021 – PT Chubb General Insurance Indonesia (Chubb) announced today its partnership with Selular Shop to offer Gadget Insurance - coverage for new mobile phones against the risk of accidental damage. The insurance product is available in 16 outlets belonging to the national mobile phone retailer.

Mobile phones purchased in Selular Shop outlets from 8 January 2021 to 8 April 2021 using selected payment methods will receive 3 months’ complimentary Gadget Insurance coverage. Selular Shop will bear the insurance premium cost of the coverage for its customers.

Gadget Insurance provides coverage for repairs and/or replacement of the insured’s mobile phone. Some key highlights of the product include*:

  • Worldwide protection against accidental damage for new mobile phones
  • A network of manufacturer-authorized repair vendors, ensuring the highest standard of repair work without the risk of voiding the manufacturer’s warranty

According to Jon Longmore, Chubb’s President Director for Indonesia’s general insurance business, “Indonesia is already one of the largest mobile phone markets in Asia. But according to research1, the number of mobile phone users in this country is expected to increase by two-thirds in 2022 compared to 2013 – a growth significant enough to position Indonesia as the fourth largest mobile market in the world.”

“Mobile phones have become a critical tool of trade for business and a social enabler for consumers. At Chubb, we want to ensure peace of mind with our Gadget Insurance – that in the event of accidental damage, our customers will be covered with a repaired or replacement device from a manufacturer-authorised repairer to ensure the warranty is honoured”.
