Thread: INSURANCE?!?!

    Default INSURANCE?!?!

    Where can I buy insurance for my camera gear and my computer? Especially when travelling.
    I've searched online but haven't found any options. I really hate the idea of being without insurance if my gear was stolen or broken.

    Try insurance broker - no it will not be online sale option. Travel insurance is fine for point and shoot - if you are traveling with serious amounts of gear, well ask yourself how much are you willing to pay. Insurance companies and bookies have many similar tendencies, collect as high as possible for the bet, make as many limitations as possible and when bookie/company loses find ways not to pay.

    What's the total value of your gear and notebook? Remember that they'll only reimburse the depreciated value of the insured items.

    I have never bought insurance for my gears because they are all 2nd hand gears.

    Thanks. I read thru the policy wordings. I do not think it is suitable. Anyone who has insured under the Home insurance better read thru the policy wordings.

    Cheers

    It doesn't cover commercial work or if you are using it for work. That's what I used to do when I was a hobbyist. When I am a full time professional this trick doesn't work anymore
