THanks for that info on the excess on the phone... my phone not worth joining the insurance for as only worth about €100... Do you know where to get similar details on the travel insurance?

"Thank you for your reply. Unfortunately, we do not have any way to send out information to anyone who is not a current member of a uFirst account. However, if you can visit a local branch, they will have leaflets available, and staff that will be able to go over all of the benefits provided."

That was the response I've gotten when I emailed them for info..... Pretty ridiculous! I found a pdf file of the brochure online but it was lacking the detail I'm looking for... thinking of signing up to insureandgo.ie as they have a €0 excess travel insurance policy (on any types of claim) which is pretty cool, I doubt ulsterbank one will have this, but just want to make sure.


A couple of years ago I got one of my phones replaced through the Ufirst phone insurance it was quick enough once you got all the stuff in.
They also insure one trip a year.
It was great originally as got an extra 0.25% off tracker mortgage with my ufirst which paid for itself.

From the ufirst site

Note it only covers for one trip a year on the standard ufirst account. Think the gold account has full annual travel insurance


Work for the company who do the U First Gold account.

Free annual worldwide cover with the account, you just need to register.

Policy excess is €50. Covered for as many trips in a year up to 31 days,Worldwide, covers 17 days winter sports.

Cancellation covered to €3750, Baggage €2000, single item limit €175, Valuables €250, Medical €10,000,000

Covers policy holder and partner and children up to 18.

One major thing is it doesn't cover ANY pre existing medical conditions

Hi ruddy1987 - quick question about phone insurance. I switched from O2 bill pay to Tesco mobile when the contract was up on my iPhone4 at the end of last month. The phone was covered by their phonecover insurance but not any more. I presume a copy of my original O2 contract would be ok as proof of purchase?

Anyone know much about the ufirst reduction on interest rate for a mortgage?
I looked it up, but was dazzled by the financial lingo.
I saw a stat of .1% off the interest rate, which isn't a huge amount, considering it was .25% in the past.

Idiots gave us ECB+60bp trackers back in the day with our free UFirst accounts and a nice switcher bonus of 1000 plus legal fees.
Must be costing them a tidy sum every month now given that they can't borrow at anywhere near those rates...

If you take more than one trip in a year, which one would be covered?
The first...?

I see, I presume you have to notify of them of the trip in advance for the Standard account.

Question for anyone that got a 25% refund on Ticketmaster purchases.

How long before it showed up as pending on the uFirst site?
and
How long before you got the 25% back, and how was it refunded?

Also, if I can't make the gig, were the tickets in some way restricted for your usage only (it says something about this in T&C) or could I resell them.

Thanks.
