This means that if a device suffers from any of these mishaps, clients are covered. 

With this latest value-added service, Epic continues to demonstrate its innovative edge, aligning seamlessly with its growth strategy focused on enhancing and diversifying its offerings to meet the dynamic needs of its customers. This is yet another offering that confirms Epic as provider of choice in addition to enjoying zero per cent interest rates and the chance to trade in old phones for cash. This service is already being rolled out in other markets where Epic’s investor group operates, including Ireland, Monaco, and Cyprus, collaborating with authorised after-sales repair shops for Apple, Samsung and Xiaomi devices.

“We’re excited to deliver another first to our clients with insurance for mobile devices and tablets in Malta,” said Epic’s Chief Marketing Officer, Karl Galea.
