Despite all the challenges 2020 has thrown your way, we hope you’re excited to be starting your new journey and are ready to throw yourself into your uni experience. There is so much to remember and insurance might not be at the top of your to-do list. This article will run through who we are, and how insurance can help you.

Who exactly are Endsleigh?

Endsleigh are the UK’s No.1 student insurance provider. Not to mention the only insurance provider recommended by the National Union of Students (NUS)!

Do I need insurance as a student?

Insurance… Sounds boring, right? Why is insurance even important for students? We’ll tell you why. You know that heart-wrenching moment when you smash your phone and instantly start weighing up life without Instagram and spending a couple of hundred quid on a new one? That’s what insurance protects you against.  

How will insurance help me? 

Here are a few situations you may find yourself in where you’ll probably be glad of insurance. 

  • You drop your laptop 
  • You smash and break your phone screen 
  • Your Xbox is stolen 
  • You break your camera 
  • You damage your headphones 

If you break your favourite gadget, you’ll be facing the harsh reality of living without it… Not. A. Mood. Having insurance means that if your gadget couldn’t be repaired (or is stolen), we’d provide you with a replacement within 24 hours of your claim being approved. So you won’t be out of touch for long… we love to see it!
