Ahoy!

I've found a UK company that offers camera insurance in addition to car breakdown (which is what I was looking for) and they're also listed with TopCashback (TCB) plus the 10% discount (18EBR10) whether for car breakdown, camera gear, bicycle or other items, but it may be useful to know.

The cashback varies according to cover/product, but it'll be up to UK Dyxum members to make their own decision.

The company is Eversure Insurance, and having put in my details for UK car breakdown home/roadside/onward travel/hotel etc, my quote for 12 months cover using the code stated is £28.98 (after 10% discount code applied) plus a further 8.08% TCB rebate.

I'm in no way connected to any of the companies mentioned, so this is for info only. I've listed the relevant URL's below including my TCB referral link.

TopCashback referral link.

Eversure Insurance website (10.1% TCB rebate for camera and gear insurance).

I haven't researched Eversure Insurance as a company (other than the TCB Review link), though if anyone who might find anything of interest that's worth sharing then do let the great unwashed know of your findings.

TTFN and I hope UK Dyxumer's may find the info of use.

I've been using Photoguard for a few years now and actually had to make a claim last year.

My review here: http://www.rharris-images.com/2017/08/24/photoguard-insurance-review/

Great for those who like to travel and use their equipment for their business.

If your use is not professional then it's recommended you check with your home insurer as well as they usually have good choices these days.

And how much more is next year's quote?
My experience is that insurance companies (at the cheaper end, at least) will try to reclaim their payouts by increased premiums ...
A900, A58, 5d, Dynax 4, 5, 60, 500si/600si/700si/800si, various Sony & Minolta lenses, several Tamrons, lots of MF primes and *far* too many old film cameras . . .

My insurance went down, slightly.

Ahoy!

Well, just for those who might be curious to know, I bought a 12 month home, roadside and relay policy for my Swedish drop-top via TCB (see my opening post) using the 10% discount code (£28.98) and a further 8.8% TCB rebate (it was tracked less than 2 hours from purchase) which from the £32.20 starting price - 10% £3.22 plus the 8.8% £2.61 TCB rebate meant that it cost me £26.37 (nett).

It just demonstrates what can be done and so for other UK Dyxum members, whatever it is you're looking for, work the system to your advantage.
