That could be your laptop for editing, capturing spectacular landscapes on your camera or your GoPro, all protected on one policy.

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 camera.

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.
