If a replacement is not available we will reimburse you up to the Market Value.

    can anyone advise?

    if the product cant be fixed within 6 weeks,they will replace...with market value (minus various amounts dep on age of item)
    also very charge interest ,so unless your paying for this in full or over the 3 months interest free,its going to be more than quoted.
    usually these warranties are not worth what you pay for,stick it on your home insurance.........VERY are not the best company to deal with at the best of times.
