Just a quick question to those of you who regularly travel with valuable electronics and production kit,

can you recommend any decent (maybe specialist) Worldwide-cover insurance policies for an iPhone 5 and MBP Retina?

A popular one is Insure the Bubble, but reading through their policy terms, I found that I’m not really covered for things like leaving my gadgets locked in a hotel room as I’d be ‘away from home’ and the gadgets would be ‘unattended’ and other stupid clauses like that, even though they give you worldwide cover for theft. :notfunny:

Another annoyance I keep finding with gaget insurers is that for many of the things they claim you will be insured for, when it comes to MacBooks and iPhones, you aren’t.

Or they’ll happily insure you for £3,000 worth of electronics, but the max they will pay out is £1,500 which won’t cover the cost.

It doesn’t help that there’s no Kensington lock on the RMBP either :|

Any recommendations would be much appreciated :)

Thanks!
