    none yo'
    I'm leaving for a trip for a month to Asia. Leaving this monday night (01-08-07). I'm not a homeowner so no homeowner's insurance applies.
    I just need something temporary for the one month I'm going to be out.


    Would traveler's insurance cover my photo gear? Recommend any? :wiggle:

    How about renters insurance? I think you can also get separate personal property insurance that covers it. If it's worth insuring for the trip, it's worth having it insured permanently.

    I think annual premiums are <$100 for coverage on $8000 worth of gear. That's cheap peace of mind.

    you won't get it in time from most agents. Especially if its right before a trip. some kind of travel insurance is the only options at this point

    when I went to get mine 2 weeks before a trip they told me they normally wouldn't write it but because I had already come in for a quote they would make an exception. Many tend to get it before a trip and then lose something while over seas and they get screwed
