Giving you peace of mind and additional protection for your home appliances.
Whether it’s keeping the kids’ school uniforms clean or making sure dinner’s always in the oven on time, we know how important it is that your appliances are always running smoothly. That’s why we’ve teamed up with Domestic & General Insurance PLC to offer you AO Care, a handy insurance policy that covers your household appliances from accidental damage and breakdowns – for absolute peace of mind.
Simply call us on 0345 241 1234* if you want to learn more about AO Care.
What you get with AO Care
When you take out a policy with us, you’ll get a whole host of benefits to keep your appliances in tip top shape.
Unlimited call-outs with no surprise repair costs
Immediate accidental damage cover
Breakdown protection after the manufacturer’s guarantee ends
A replacement appliance if it can’t be fixed
Access to a network of approved engineers to help repair your appliance
Exclusive access to the AO Care portal, where you can book and track your repair, and choose a new replacement if needed
After you’ve purchased a product from us, we’ll get in touch to offer an AO Care Protection Policy. Or if you want to call us, you can choose to take out the policy at any time up to one month after your purchase. You can also give us a call when your manufacturer’s guarantee is a month away from expiring.
How does the AO Care Protection Policy work?
AO Care’s Protection Policy is really simple. Paid by monthly direct debit, it gives continuous protection for your appliance for as long as you need it to.
If you need to, you can cancel within 14 days of taking out the policy and you’ll get a full refund of any payments you’ve made - unless you’ve already received a replacement product. Unfortunately we can’t offer a refund if you cancel after the 14 days, and if your product’s been replaced under the policy, your AO Care Protection Policy will end automatically.
It’s worth noting that third party policies like home insurance or credit card providers might offer some of the benefits of the AO Care Protection Policy – but they might not cover accidental damage. You might also be charged an excess and any claim might mean that your insurance premium increases.

What are my statutory rights?
If you’ve bought a product from us and it’s faulty, you can claim a refund, repair, or replacement for up to six years - five in Scotland. If you claim after the first six months of owning your product, you‘ll have to prove that it was faulty when it was sold to you. The longer it takes for any fault to appear on your product, the more difficult this will be. For more information on this, get in touch with your local authority Trading Standards Department or Citizens Advice Bureau.
