    Hi All,

    I'm emigrating to Australia from the UK in September and am looking for some tips on insurance.

    I have about £1000 of diver gear and £5000 of camera gear that I will be taking with me so need a decent policy. We're stopping in Thailand for a couple of weeks diving along the way. The thing is that most policies need you to be starting and ending your trip int he same country.

    Also looking at dive cover, do I need a dive insurance policy from DAN Europe since we start the trip in the UK, or DAN Asia Pacific since that is where we will be living at the end of the trip?!

    Thanks for any tips!

    Drop Westfield an email.

    We've had trips that had elements that fell foul of the standard T&C,
    It went to the underwriters who signed it off as ok under just one
    easy to follow condition.

    Worth an ask,

    Maybe you need AsiaPac insurance that covers you in the UK?

    But call Westfield. They should be able to talk to their underwriters for special needs.
