Important extract from terms and conditions;

"6.2 Additional claims cover can be purchased at the time of booking subject to a maximum of £2000. If claims cover is selected in excess of the maximum allowed for that type of item, as shown in the restricted and prohibited items list (above), our maximum liability will be that shown on said list.. We will refund the difference in the claim cover charges if requested (within 28 days of booking). If you select cover for an item on the restricted and prohibited items list, or for a higher amount than is allowed on the list, this does not mean that WPS have entered into a contract to that level of cover, even if we have not refunded the claims cover payment.."

6.3.1 No claim can be made for an item not specifically listed at time of booking, i.e., if you put "clothes" as a description when booking and then say that there is a laptop missing or damaged, the claim will immediately be rejected.
