p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Risk of Renting Equipment


I'm thinking about renting a lens, but by home insurance agent says that a rental is not covered. The insurance available from the rental house does not seem to cover much, for example no sand or water. So much for wet landings on the beach.

This is one of the primary reasons why I bought a 200-400mm f/4 prior to my trip to Africa, rather than renting. Aside from the fact that I could re-sell it after the fact for about the same loss, or less, than the rental cost... it is also fully covered by my add-on insurance.

That plan fell apart for other reasons - namely Nikon releasing the new 80-400mm, but my 80-400mm was fully insured on my trip

I looked at them, but the insurance option does not cover the major cause of damages.

Thanks. It looks OK, but has anyone filed a claim?

I think this may be a tough one unless you have business insurance that would cover rentals.
I have only rented modestly priced items for trips. Higher value items stayed local for testing/evaluation purposes. All this for the same reason you worry about.
