- Before you make a claim.
There are a few things you need to know before you make a claim. Make sure you read them carefully, as they could affect whether your claim's approved or not.
If you've been the victim of a crime, we recommend you report any stolen device to the police and get a crime reference number.
Read the Three Rescue™ Terms and Conditions in full, so you know what you need to do, what's covered and what's not. You will receive a copy in the post after you purchase or view online here.
If you report a claim to us more than 90 days after discovering the loss, theft, damage or out of warranty breakdown, we will still consider your claim, but it may affect our ability to assess your claim and could, in some cases, result in it being declined.
Pay the claim excess fee to complete your claim. The claim excess fee for your device is advised at the time of purchase and confirmed in your policy.

- Why we ask for a claim excess fee.
Devices are getting more and more valuable, so they're expensive to replace. The claim excess fee helps us keep down the amount you have to pay every month, and it's much less than the actual cost of replacing your device. Once your claim has been accepted and you've paid the excess fee, we'll take care of everything else and we'll deliver your replacement to your door the next day. Terms apply – please see Section G of your Three Rescue™ Terms and Conditions for details.
