Bupa's travel insurance is worthless when it comes to claims. Their policy clearly mentions that electronic items are covered by their non-medical insurance: "14.1: If the policyholder has chosen the Non-Medical Option, the Company shall compensate the insured for the following items belonging to the insured on his/her travel outside his/her country of permanent residence: baggage, electronic equipment, cash, tickets, credit cards, drivers license, securities and passports." Yet when I tried to claim for my damaged camera, they have refused to compensate me.
