The equipment must be owned by your employer or if you are self-employed, it must be owned by you.

  • communication devices
  • tablets
  • speakers
  • projector
  • microphone
  • printer
  • trade show furniture and marketing materials

Business equipment loss, theft or damage

If your business equipment that you take with you on your trip is lost, stolen or damaged then Travel by Us will pay up to $2,500.

The limit applies to any item, pair or set of items.

Keep in mind

  • We may decide to either repair or replace the property or pay you its value after allowing for depreciation including wear and tear. In any case, the payment will not be more than the original cost of the item.
  • If you think your business equipment was lost or stolen while with an airline, you should make a claim against the airline first. If you receive compensation from an airline, the amount you may receive from us will be reduced by the amount of compensation you receive from the airline for the same event.
  • Not all rules and exclusions have been listed here. Please see the Combined Product Disclosure Statement and Policy Wording for full details.
