p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Gear Insurance that covers Antigua & Barbuda


I am headed out in nine day for a month of shooting for work and play in Antigua & Barduda. My insurance company and agent told me I am not covered there, after two weeks of giving them detail time, where, and gear list.

Does anyone know of a company that will do a better job covering my gear?

Thanks for any help, I am on the hunt today.

Thanks fgphoto, I will check them out. Appreciate the info.

Quick quote, not cheap but they cover a lot. Same price as my full business policy. Will call and ask some detail questions.

Have tcpinsurance.com on the back burner, still hunting for other options. Better to get all the info I can now. I am sure this will go into next week. So if you have a good company you are happy with, I will give them a call and get a quote.

Thanks

Just so people who also might be looking I tried Insured My Equipment, the quote was the same as TCP Insurance. Still hunting.

If you are going to play then only a homeowner or renter policy is going to cover your gear. The policies by Hill & Usher and others are good only for equipment used to generate income. Check with your current agent about an umbrella or rider for your current insurance.

Thanks for your response, I shoot as a big part of my business. Our home umbrella/homeowner insurance does not cover my business. I switched my business insurance to Ohio Mutual 12 years ago, and they have been great. But for some reason they said Antigua & Barbuda is not covered so I am lining up options.

Check with Taylor and Taylor. They offer worldwide coverage.

Are you looking for ongoing coverage or just for your trip. I believe quite a few places that offer worldwide coverage (e.g. hill & usher, nanpa) but you might need an annual policy.

You could join Professional Photographers of America (PPA) and receive 15K of equipment insurance for free, or you can opt for a more extensive policy at a charge , which is what I have done. I believe coverage outside the US is part of the policy. The rates are competitive. Belonging to PPA offers many other benefits as well. They are not sponsoring me but I have been a member since 1983. The policy can be filled out (model & serial number info) online and paid for as well. You could call PPA but as of the moment most staff are engaged in administering the annual Convention which ends Tuesday. I've been quite happy with the help I've received from PPA over the years, but I've never filed a claim so I've no experience to offer there.

Thanks Tony,

Will look into PPA again, I thought the limit was 15K? Nice to know you can pay more and increase that limit.

I will go there now and learn more. I have been a member of NPPA for about 10 years but there is no insurance coverage.

Thank you Tony, and everyone else who responded.

I am now a PPA member, and have all of my gear insured with their great coverage. Plus access to all their other benifits.

Everyone on the phone was helpful, and they were real people.

Appreciate all the great recommendation. If I was asked the same question I would also say PPA.

Hope this thread might help others.
