When you’re out and about, your handbag is an extension of you in many ways. It’s a first aid kit with the plasters and medication you need to take care of yourself and your loved ones. It safeguards your cellphone, bank cards, ID, and driver’s licence. It holds your house keys and gate remote. It keeps your makeup, perfume, and jewellery within arm’s reach, so you can look and feel your best within minutes no matter where you are. 

It holds a lot so you can do a lot. If you lost it, it would be devastating. That’s why you and your handbag deserve Handbag Insurance specifically designed for women from 1st for Women.

When we talk about your handbag, we mean any bag that you use to hold your personal possessions while you’re going about your day. That could mean your purse, clutch, tote, waist bag – whatever your style of handbag, we’ll cover it.
