New iPad owners eager to take the device on the road have a new insurance option.
Protect Your Bubble, a specialty insurance brand, says it now offers iPad (and other tablet) insurance. The company’s $9.99 per month plan includes loss, theft and water damage coverage. A similar plan for smartphones cost $7.99 a month.
The company says a couple of important questions to consider when deciding whether to purchase insurance are whether it would cost more than $300 to replace the device and whether you could comfortably go two or more days without it.
Protect Your Bubble claims it will provide a replacement device within 24 hours.
As a simple web search will quickly reveal, Protect Your Bubble is far from the only company to offer insurance options for tablets and other mobile devices. For example, a company called SquareTrade offers a better price than Protect Your Bubble on a new iPad warranty, but does not cover loss or theft.
