After smartphones, Coverd now insures AirPods at a low price. Enough to bring all the necessary tranquility to users of these small headphones that we are used to taking everywhere, even to the beach.
The AirPods are clearly the most significant Apple products of recent years as they are regularly seen in the ears of passers-by. The reason for the success? Ease of use and compactness allowing them to be adopted without hindrance. But lo and behold, the small size of these headphones means that they can easily be dropped in water or sand and damaged. An inconvenience which the Coverd insurer allows you to get rid of.
Already known for its insurance for smartphones like the iPhone 13, Coverd is expanding its service by offering to cover your AirPods as well. The startup has the advantage of offering a 100% digital service that is easy to use and understand, all at an attractive price. Indeed, Coverd’s insurance for AirPods and AirPods Pro costs only 1.90 euros per month, with no time commitment.
What does Coverd AirPods insurance cover?
Whether caused by clumsiness or malicious intent, many claims are covered by Coverd. The insurance also allows you to see very clearly in its offer, by clearly explaining what is covered, or not. Here is the damage covered by Coverd:
- oxidationcaused by rain or an unfortunate fall into the swimming pool for example
- malfunctioning microphone or speakers due to breakage or oxidation
- volume control or charging port broken
- a damaged charging casebroken or cracked (only if perceptible to the touch)
Finally, an option against theft for only one euro can enrich the offer. With it, your AirPods are replaced in many cases of aggression, including intimidation without physical violence. Finally, only the loss of your headphones or theft from your home without breaking and entering are not covered.
No commitment or deductible: simplified insurance
Unlike traditional insurance, Coverd insurance is without obligation or frankness. What bring a certain flexibility to its users. For example, you can only subscribe for a few months, in the case of outdoor work with risks, for example.
Another advantage, Coverd insurance will not ask you for a deductible when taking charge of a claim on your AirPods. That is, you won’t have to pay anything when you send your headphones in for repair. The only thing to pay is the monthly membership fee.
How does the handling of a claim work with Coverd?
No paperwork or long minutes waiting on the phone: that’s Coverd’s promise. The startup offers a 100% digital service allowing you to declare a claim directly from its website. It is from this place that you can send your supporting documents in digital format.
Once the loss has been declared, Coverd undertakes to take charge of your AirPods within 24 hours, free of charge. You have two options:
- a prepaid box is sent to your home. All you have to do is slip your headphones in and send them back to Coverd.
- Have your headphones repaired yourself at an Apple-authorized store or center. The costs must be advanced, but Coverd reimburses them to you within 48 hours of receiving the supporting documents.
In the first case, the AirPods are sent to an Apple-authorized repair center. If no repair is possible, the insurer then sends you Apple headphones like new. Coverd announces that the claim processing time is between 4 and 7 working days, including the transport period. A quick delay that won’t leave you without music for long.
A small price without commitment: the Coverd magic formula
By offering a formula at a low price and without commitment, Coverd stands in opposition to traditional insurance. To insure AirPods or AirPods Pro, the start-up only asks 1.90 euros per month (option against theft at 1 euro). This is a very small counterpart to extend the life of its earphones. Above all, it is quite possible to try the service for only a few months, then to retract at no cost. Enough to form your own opinion before insuring your smartphone, for example.
