How to buy
Continued cover for items you already own
When your existing Service Guarantee or Littlewoods Protect – Repair insurance policy is coming to an end you may be able to continue protecting your item with Littlewoods Protect - Repair Annual. We will contact you a few weeks prior to expiry to let you know if this is available.
If you have an existing Littlewoods Protect - Repair Annual policy and have given permission for us to renew your policy, it may be automatically renewed on a rolling one year basis for up to 6 years using the payment method you selected when you purchased your policy. We will contact you a few weeks prior to the expiry with further details including cost, payment method and information about how to opt out of the renewal if you don’t want to continue insuring your product.
This policy will not automatically renew where permission for it to do so has not been given by you.
Even the most reliable products and brands can develop faults, which is why many major electrical retailers offer a manufacturer's warranty. By purchasing Littlewoods Protect - Repair, you are extending the warranty so your item will continue to be covered for mechanical and electrical breakdown after the manufacturer's warranty period ends.
In addition to mechanical and electrical breakdown, a Littlewoods Protect - Repair policy also provides cover for accidental damage. If you accidentally damage your item and it stops working, you have peace of mind that we will repair it for you.
Littlewoods Protect - Repair cover does not include some situations including loss or theft and failure to follow manufacturer's instructions.
Please check your household insurance policy carefully to see what you're covered for. Your household insurance may not cover you for mechanical and electrical breakdown or accidental damage. You may also be covered if you hold any extended warranty programmes so please check these too.

Most manufacturers offer a 12-month warranty against any mechanical or electrical breakdown, but they may not include cover for accidental damage.
