Insurance for camera equipment
Ok... a friend of mine from Japan just had his camera equipment stolen for his Bangkok hotel room. It was Canon 1d MkII and 2 x L lens. He firgured its about $15K worth of gear. He says his insurance would cover about 1/3 of it only.
I know there are insurance policies specific for photographers in UK, but are there any available in Singapore? How much would it cover and what are the premiums like?
I travel a bit so its something I might want to consider getting....

Can anyone clarify, or know of alternatives?

Contact your AIA/AIG insurance rep for further details.

Hi Chaltan, could you tell us the NAME of the policy you bought? What product or package does it come under? I'm very interested to know more!

Are you able to claim 100% of the lost/stolen equipment and do they insure second-hand gear, which we may not have the receipt?
