Pick pocketing: Should a penny pincher lift your purse, have no fear- you’d be reimbursed!
Plane property: Your hand luggage is covered so you can feel bold, but your airline's rresponsible for your stuff in the hold.
Sodden stuff: If your stuff goes swimming or falls down the loo, you’d be covered for repair or replacement, whichever suits you.
Drunken disappearances: We all love a tipple but if you have too much drink, your stuff won’t be covered, so think before you sink!
Car crime: If stolen from a locked compartment, your insurer may pay, take note this applies only during the day.
Bags left with a stranger: Trust a new friend or a stranger with your stash? You’ll be out of pocket if they do a mad dash.
Checked in items: Bags left in the hold of a plane, bus or train will be the carrier’s responsibility, so don’t make a claim.
Items out of sight: Fancy a dip and left your stuff on the beach? In order to claim your things must be in reach.
