Cover your tech while you're working or travelling overseas.
If anything positive has come out of the COVID-19 pandemic it’s that people are looking for new ways to work while travelling. If you’re planning on leaving Ireland and adopting the digital nomad lifestyle then, as well as your laptop and passport, you may want to pack travel insurance just in case the unexpected happens.
Our policies offer cover for a wide range of gadgets including:
But how we cover your items (and how much) depends on your plan. We cover:
Note: depreciation and wear and tear will be considered when calculating the claim settlement value of your electronic items (depreciation will not be applied to items listed as 'specified items' and you have paid the additional premium).
Whether you’re plugging into your social network or working remotely in a hub, we can help you protect your valuables and devices. Our seven tips could help you travel safely and keep your gear secure.
Travel insurance tip: our travel insurance policy doesn’t replace the need for you to purchase rental vehicle insurance or damage waiver cover through the rental vehicle company covering physical damage and theft of the rental car and your liability to third parties for injury or property damage while the rental car is in your care or control.

It was my final day in Riga, Latvia. In my small bag I keep all my valuables, because hostels can't always be reliable with safekeeping. It contained my new GoPro, Iphone, digital camera, laptop and hard drive, plus my emergency money (200 euros). I planned on using my cameras and computer for editing later that afternoon. The coast was amazing and, as it got late, I decided to take the train back to Riga city. As I was getting off the train, down the vertical steep steps, I had my bag snatched off my shoulder. In seconds, the doors closed and the train pulled off. Telling authorities on the platforms immediately, they could not assist and referred me straight to the police. Feeling helpless, I went to the police where I was kept for hours, because of English barriers and translations of documents. I walked out just after midnight with my report. A day trip I won't forget soon.
