i've enquired about an insurance scheme for my equipment too. Am meeting up my insurance agent later this evening to find out more from her.
But essentially, it's a similar plan to the above. Insure some amount of items in the house of a certain value. I believe it's something like total of 6k. It is insured against theft etc. I specifically asked about theft while travelling overseas and she mentioned yes, it covers.
Will have a more detail look later on in the evening.
