Thread: Insurance for camera equipment

    Default 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....

    I'm from Singapore.

    I've just insured my photographic gears with AIG. Premiums is 2% of the price of the equipment per year. Need a photocopy of the original receipt. This is a rider and has to tag along with home insurance coverage (approx 200+ per yr).

    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?

    Thanks.

    to insurance agents: how do they check whether did you forge a robbery of your camera gears?? Anybody can just go to police station and lodge a police report..

    Not really lah! Usually I wld less emphasize insurance coverage for non living things. I am the type who emphasize more on human beings. Have to clarify not for the sake for higher commission. But becozzz I feel HUMANS ARE THE MONEY MAKING MACHINES. Protection for human begins is more important than those non living things. No offence to those photographers love love their equipments veri veri veri much. For professionalism sake, any types of policies also ok loh. I will try to meet my clients financial needs.
