Say hello to metal

Your Monzo Premium card is made from a single 16g sheet of steel, complete with a precision-engraved logo and a white finish. With your details kept neatly on the back for a minimal design. It’s available right now, and it’s exclusive to Monzo Premium.

Phone insurance, from Assurant

Worth an average of £96.58 a year. More on this below.

We’ve all been there, right? That heart-in-your-mouth moment where you reach down to flip over the phone you dropped to the concrete. It’s a feeling we’d all rather avoid, and knowing your phone’s insured can really put your mind at ease.

With Monzo Premium, phones worth up to £2,000 (including VAT) are protected against theft, loss and accidental damage – even the dreaded cracked screen.

Any accessories under £300 are covered too, like headphones, chargers or cases. If you had to make a claim, you’d pay the first £75 – this is what’s called the excess.

Read the Assurant terms and conditions for exclusions and full details. There’s also the Assurant Insurance Product Information Document (IPID) for a summary of the benefits, exclusions and other important information.

We could all do with some added comfort and security when it comes to travel plans right now. With Monzo Premium, you get travel insurance provided by Zurich, powered by Qover that covers you and your family anywhere in the world.

It covers emergency medical bills up to £10 million, lost valuables up to £750, and cancellation costs up to £5,000. As well as flight delays of more than 4 hours and winter sports, including skiing and snowboarding.

And if you had to make a claim, you’d pay the first £50 – again, that’s the excess.
