Why buy camera insurance?

You can’t do much photography without a camera. And if your camera breaks, gets lost or stolen or is damaged then without insurance it can be very costly and take a lot of time to sort everything out. Insurance is there to help get you back to snapping away as quickly and easily as possible.

Whether it’s repairs, replacements or a payout to cover costs, Gadget Insurance is a safety net should something go wrong. And with a policy that can accommodate up to 10 devices**, you can have cover for the rest of your photography suite – from your laptop to your drone.

Our pay-as-you-go policy means you’re in control. If you sell a camera but it’s a while before you can upgrade, simply stop your policy. We’ll be ready for when you come back.

Camera Insurance FAQs

What is camera insurance?

Camera insurance is a means of protecting cameras and camera-related equipment in the event that they are damaged, lost, stolen or suffer the result of a range of circumstances. A successful claim might help you by repairing broken or damaged equipment, replacing it, or offering you a cash sum. Gadget Insurance, which covers cameras and camera equipment, offers this protection to a large range of gadgets.

What about items on my contents insurance?

Your home contents insurance might have exclusions for gadgets or the situations in which you can make a claim. There may be a single article limit (the maximum value an item can have for it to be insured) and certain pieces of technology you own can exceed that value.

You might have opted for away from home cover on your home contents insurance, which means that specific items on your policy are covered when you take them out. It’s important to check your policy documents if you want to take these abroad.

Gadget Insurance covers devices up to a pre-defined value worldwide. Your cover level will dictate what you are covered for, and it’s important to compare different types of policy to come to a conclusion about what type of insurance would best suit your needs.

Does Gadget Insurance cover water damage?

Not just water; all manner of liquids! But yes, our Gadget Insurance covers liquid damage as standard.
