Airtel Payments Bank customers can now buy Smartphone Insurance from ICICI Lombard General Insurance Company on the Airtel Thanks app. With this, Airtel Payments Bank has further strengthened its insurance offering available on its digital platform. Customers can now buy insurance through a fast, paperless, and secure digital process.

With a monthly premium starting at Rs 1299, customers can get an insurance sum that is equivalent to the purchase price of their smartphone. Customers can get this insurance on their own until ten days after purchasing a smartphone priced between Rs 10,000 to Rs 100,000. After submitting smartphone details, the insurance is automatically issued without a device health check. The connectedness that smartphones enabled during the epidemic will make this device insurance more beneficial to individuals than ever before.
