Camera Insurance from Eversure
Whether you’ve just bought your very first DSLR or you were born with a camera in your hand, we’ve got cover to suit everyone’s needs. The last thing you want to worry about on a shoot, is whether you’ll be covered should the worst happen to your camera and its equipment, making sure you’ve got insurance in place, will help keep those fears at bay.
We’ve added some really useful features to our policy, so take a look at how we can help you.
Zero Admin Fees
Making changes to your policy has never been easier. We charge no admin fees, so if you treat yourself to a brand-new lens, adding it to your policy is easy, simply get in touch by email and we’ll do the rest.
Theft (Including from a Vehicle)
All our camera policies come with theft (including from a vehicle) cover as standard. As long as you’ve kept your camera and its equipment in a safe and locked part of the car such as the glove box or boot, you’ll be covered.
New for Old Cover
New for old cover simply means that if your camera or videography equipment is lost or damaged beyond repair it will be replaced by the new equivalent model. One really good thing about this feature is that even if your camera is several years old and is no longer made, you will usually be able to replace this with a camera with the same specifications (or as close as possible).
£100 Excess as Standard
With a low excess amount, we’ve tried to make repairs and claims as pain-free as possible. This is the maximum excess you’ll have to pay, not a penny more.
For the globetrotting photographers out there; if you’re a keen traveller, our policy will extend around the planet with you for trips up to a whopping 120 days in length. As long as there isn’t a travel advisory against the country you’re visiting, you’ll be covered there.
Always read through your policy wording and exclusions, to make sure our cover is right for you.
We require that you are able to provide evidence of ownership for each item that you wish to insure, in the event of a claim.
We can accept either:
- A receipt, invoice or credit agreement stating the item, value and date of purchase.
Or at least two of the following:
- Clear photographs of your equipment which are date and time stamped.
- A bank or credit card statement showing the date and value of the purchase and the retailer's details.
- Packaging and literature which shows details of the item and purchase.
- A recent valuation or repair statement from a reputable camera dealer stating the item, value and date.
- For items purchased through an online auction such as eBay; a printed copy of the original auction, including photos, description and auction number as well as the relevant proof of payment.

Nothing is too much trouble, I receive accurate, professional and friendly advice, and service is extremely quick.
