BT Cellnet Mobile Handset Insurance Cover Scandal
I want to let everyone know about some small print included in BT Cellnet Insurance packages , which I have found to be nothing more than a 'getout clause'. This cover is provided by 'Catalyst' Insurance, which worryingly, being as they are BT Cellnets provider, operate from a PO Box number, and do not even have an e.mail address on their correspondance. ( Furthermore they even got my name wrong when sending out a claim form ! ). Is this the kind of company I would expect BT Cellnet to be dealing with ??? The scenario is as follows, I left my car with the mobile locked in the boot with other possessions, ( we are always told to lock things in the boot arn't we ? ) The car was broken into, via the passenger window and the seats pulled down to get to the boot, where the mobile was stolen from. The crunch is, . . wait for it. . . the claim was denied because there was no forced access to the boot area ! ! The fact that the car is covered in smashed glass has nothing to do with there being "forced access" obviously. It has taken a lot of time and effort to finally get my claim approved, and it was done so with the attitude of "we are doing you a favour" rather than anything else.
I would urge anyone with mobile handset insurance cover, whatever network you are on, to seriously look at your cover, this is a ridiculous situation which we should not have to put up with.
