Accidental damage and replacement policy

For Hoover and Candy appliances, you’ll also benefit from a separate insurance policy which is provided by Domestic & General Insurance PLC. This policy will provide you with a replacement appliance if yours can’t be fixed during initial repair under your maintenance and support plan. It will also protect your repaired or replacement appliance against accidental damage.

For more information, you can visit our Hoover Candy brand page.

Please read the Insurance Product Information Document of this policy.
