TripInsurance.com signed a partnership agreement with Worth Ave. Group to add insurance for theft or accidental breakage of electronic equipment while traveling, including iPhone insurance. The coverage is sold as an option with all of Trip Insurance’s policies. But it goes further than that, you just don’t have to be on traveling to take advantage of this insurance.
For a modest annual fee, Worth Ave. Group will insure your smartphone, laptop, iPad or camera against theft or breakage for twelve months, whether at home, on the road, or while traveling abroad. There is a modest deductible fee – typically $50 or less, depending on the device – and insurance claims will reimburse the cost to repair or replace the device.
“Expensive digital cameras and portable electronics are common accessories for international travelers, but travel insurance rarely covers these devices” said Dan Skilken, founder and CEO of TripInsurance.com. “We’re committed to give our customers peace of mind for every aspect of their trip, and by partnering with Worth Ave. Group we can provide protection for electronic devices; a service that no other online travel insurance provider offers today.”
Because it is sold as an annual policy it covers the equipment for multiple trips, as well as providing coverage at home. It is ideal for foreign exchange students to cover their laptops and other portable electronics when they take a semester overseas.
