New Channel has launched its Complete Computer Cover online. Those seeking cover can now receive a premium quote online by visiting

New Channel is the new trading name of Summit Insurance Services and the renamed company's managing director David Dury is confident that the online venture will take off.

He said: “With Complete Computer Cover, there are no difficult questions to answer, no minimum safety requirements to prove, no excess, just a simple premium calculation and you can have worldwide cover for your laptop in minutes, so obviously this is a policy that lends itself to being bought over the internet.”

The site can give quotes for one, two and three years' cover and allows customers to read the full policy wording before they buy. They can also report a claim online.

For those still tentative about the internet and the well documented security scares, there is the option to complete the transaction over the telephone.
