    I need to get some crap insured when I go away (namely laptop, camera and phone). What's everyone done in the past for this? I'm not sure about our home contents cover and I'd rather just have all my stuff insured under myself for your regular problems (theft, accidental damage). Any ideas?

    I probably should have specified that I'm studying abroad for the full year, if that changes things at all. I'll take a look at these, thanks.

    i'm in the same position, going to study in france. i've looked at endsleigh too and i think it does cover your stuff when they're on you or in your locked room. also could try going on the parents insurance too. i think there was also 'cover4students' when i browsed the internet

    Where are you going?

    I used AA general EU multi trip travel insurance and extended the policy to one which covered me for 90 days outside of the UK, as I worked out I'd be coming back within the 3 month period each time. I didn't want health stuff as my host country had a great NHS style system, so it was mainly for insuring me whilst I travelled around. Obviously if you're going to Australia you'll be coming back less often so it might not work, whereas I came back at Christmas and then for my birthday in semester two.

    Spain, so not too far away.
