Good pictures are not the only things that can get taken when you own an expensive camera. Thieves look to target valuable equipment such as cameras, laptops, mobile phones and other portable equipment that you use as much out of the house as you do at home. Simple security steps will help reduce the risk, such as keeping your camera out of sight and in a bag when not in use and writing down serial numbers to help identify your camera if it is stolen or lost. You should also make sure you are properly insured.
Hiscox Contents Insurance automatically provides camera insurance as part of our unlimited cover so whatever the value of your loss, you can be confident it's covered. Plus, you only have to list individual cameras or pieces of equipment if they're worth £15,000 or more.
Why you might consider camera insurance
- Cameras and other similar, highly portable items are vulnerable to theft and accidental damage
- The total value of many items such as digital cameras and mobile phones may be far higher than you think
