Whether you’re a photography enthusiast with all the gear, or you’d just be lost without your point and shoot digital on holiday, protecting your device and equipment is vital.  

Our contents insurance automatically provides camera insurance as part of our unlimited cover. You only need to tell us if your individual cameras or pieces of equipment are worth £15,000 or more and we’ll make sure you’re fully covered.

Why you might benefit from camera insurance

  • Cameras and additional portable hardware are vulnerable to theft and accidental damage.
  • The total value of your camera and extra equipment, like tripods, chargers and lenses, could be higher than you think.

How we protect your camera equipment

If you have a Hiscox Home Insurance policy you don’t need to take out separate camera cover. We provide unlimited insurance for camera equipment as standard.

  • Unlimited cover
    If your equipment is lost, stolen or damaged, the total amount we’ll pay out is unlimited, unless you exclude this from your policy.
  • No need to list anything worth under £15,000
    Our camera cover includes all equipment worth less than £15,000 as standard. So if you have a high value collection, you’ll avoid the hassle of listing every lower value item.
  • Worldwide cover
    Your camera equipment and accessories are fully covered when you take them away from home for up-to 60 days at a time.
  • Digital media cover
    We’ll cover you for up-to £5,000 if you need to retrieve lost digital downloads, including video and photographs.
  • Accidental damage cover
    Provides cover home or away for your camera and equipment. Accidental damage was the cause of 1 in 5 claims over the last 3 years.
  • Exceptional claims service
    99% of customers surveyed who made a claim would recommend us
    (Insight Now, 249 surveys, Feb 2017 - Jul 2017).

If you need to make a claim for your equipment, you can call our UK-based award-winning claims team, who’ll aim to settle your claim immediately.
