YES COVER TO GIVE YOU PEACE OF MIND

Life is good with an amazing new mobile phone. But disaster is just one awkward juggle away!

Luckily, Optus can help. Yes Cover gives you peace of mind by getting you back on track quickly in case of loss, theft or unfortunate mishap. That means a replacement phone, in your hand, as soon as humanly possible. Faster if we can!

Make your new phone theft-proof, bump-proof, drop-in-the-toilet-proof (and pretty much random-accident proof). So you can get back to doing the things you love.

WHY INSURE WITH YES COVER?

As we all know, life's little accidents happen. And they can happen so easily. With Yes Cover's fast claim turnarounds and replacement phones, you can stay in touch no matter what happens to your mobile phone.

  • Swap your damaged phone for a replacement at selected Optus stores (most models)
  • If your phone is lost or stolen, a replacement phone will be delivered to you within 1-2 business days of your claim being approved.
  • With Yes Cover, you’re not locked into a contract, so you can try it for the first few months when your phone is most valuable
  • Avoid paying the full cost of a new mobile phone
  • Be assured by coverage above and beyond the manufacturer’s warranty and consumer guarantees under the Australian Consumer Law

WHAT'S COVERED?

If your phone is accidentally damaged, lost or stolen - whether it's here in Australia or while travelling overseas – you're covered.

And if your phone is lost or stolen you're also covered for any unauthorised use of your service up to $600 value.

Not only that, any associated accessories are covered, so if you lose your phone and your favourite case is attached, for instance, that's covered too!
