I want an insurance that covers my belongings only. I already have a international travel health insurance, hence I do not need some link or recommendation to do-it-all packages (i.e. insurance for health + rescue + belongings).

Note: my credit card does NOT cover my belongings, nor does any of the insurances I already have.

Ideally, I'd like to find an insurance that can insure my belongings regardless of my nationality & residence.

Links to information of quality is welcome.

    Coverage for personal possessions while traveling usually is only available as part of a travel insurance package. I have never seen it sold as a stand alone product. Some homeowners / renters insurance policies may cover your possessions outside the domicile. And most every insurance company will take your nationality and residence into consideration when quoting a price. – user13044 May 21 '15 at 14:18
  • @Tom usually yes, but I did find several insurances providing coverage for belongings/luggages only. – Adrien Be May 21 '15 at 23:27
  • Unless you drag about very expensive items for a backpacker, I would not worry. Have in insurance on your laptop/tablet/phone and do without for the rest. The most important part of any travel insurance, in my view, is the repatriating part, which will not come with a luggage insurance. – Willeke Jan 4 '16 at 13:56
  • Two reasons I'd querey the logic/validity of doing this: The first is - even if these packages exist, are the actually any cheaper? If so, great, if not, then why not be overinsured rather than pay the same for a less comprehensive product. The second is that travel insurance covers a lot more than just medical and property - typically you also get liability and cancellation cover, as well as repatriation, all of which can be pretty valuable, even if you don't need the medical. – CMaster Jan 4 '16 at 14:08
  • @CMaster agreed, getting a package that does cover this as well as health, cancellations and so on would be more ideal. However, there are special cases where one already have these things covered and only need the luggage insurance. – Adrien Be Jan 5 '16 at 4:55

uk.protectyourbubble.com - UK residents only. up to 180 days.

photoguard.co.uk - UK residents only?


For people residing in the USA

http://clements.com/property/default.asp - does NOT seem as clear as it says This plan covers my camera gear, computer, and other items in my pack from theft or damage anywhere in the world. It’s cheap & covers a lot. I provide receipts for scheduled gear up front (computer, cameras, lenses), and a general amount for unscheduled gear. Cost: Plan 1 (1 year policy) = $19/month for $7500 worth of gear.
