Are you travelling with valuable items? You may be able to increase the item limits by paying an additional premium. When arranging your travel insurance online, you may be able to increase the luggage item limit up to $4,000 for a single item. For multiple items, the overall increase in limits cannot exceed $7,000. An additional premium will apply. This can help protect the important things you’re taking with you. Remember that receipts or valuations (less than 24 months old) must be available if requested by us. If you choose not to increase cover for your valuable items, then our standard item limits will apply.

When you’re at home, you look after your belongings. When you travel it should be no different. We see many claims for loss or theft that are caused by people being careless with their belongings. Your claim may be declined if you fail to take care of your personal possessions. Not all belongings are covered by the policy.

If during the Period Of Insurance Your luggage or personal effects are lost, stolen or damaged, after deducting reasonable depreciation. We will replace, provide a replacement voucher, repair or pay You the monetary value of the luggage or personal effects. It is Our choice which of these We do.
This policy is an indemnity policy which means settlement of Your claim is based on the value of an item at the time of the loss and not on a ‘new for old’ or replacement cost basis. Reasonable depreciation takes into account the amount paid originally for the item, its age, wear and tear and advances in technology.
Our payment will not exceed the original purchase price of an item with a limit for any one item, set or pair of items including attached and unattached accessories of:

For example a camera, camera accessories, lenses and tripod (attached or not) are considered one item. A necklace and pendant are considered one item.
Where an additional premium has been paid to increase the item limit for a single item, the claim will be assessed based on the item limit specified on the Certificate of Insurance. For multiple items, the overall increase in limits cannot exceed $7,000.
We will pay You for the cost of replacing travel documents and credit cards lost or stolen on the Journey. We will also pay for Your legal liability arising from their illegal use. You must however, comply with all the conditions of the issue of the document prior to and after the loss or theft.
