Can anyone please recommend an insurance company or insurance broker who handle insurance cover for photographic equipment (camera + lenses)? Cover needed both within South Africa and travelling externally.

Bump, got a quote to insure my equipment as part of my household insurance and it's going to cost me R400 extra with an excess of R640 per item (They valued everything at R30k). Is that reasonable for all risk cover? Seems like a lot :/

This is with Momentum.

Do you have a breakdown per item?
My 6D is still insured for R25K (I should probably check prices again...) and costs me R93 per month at Alexander Forbes. Excess is R250.
