Professional photographers (and amateurs with expensive equipment) all have separate insurance for their gear.
You'll find it's never covered in travel or house insurance policies.
Which policy you need probably depends on your home country. I've not sought it out in NL, but most pro stores should know of someone (there's usually only 1 or 2 per country). There's a pro store near Haarlemerplein if that helps.
All the travel insurance I've looked at in NL have an upper limit of around 750 EUR per trip per person on photography equipment. I'm an amateur photographer, and my travel kit costs three times that much - and if I travel with lights it's much more than that.
Does anyone have any recommendations on where to get worldwide (photography) travel insurance which would allow me to set an upper limit in accordance with the value of my gear?
First, when I bought my camera (it costed pretty much) and I didn't want to damage it during my backpacking trip to Spain. So, I was thinking whether should I bring it at all. But then I decided to cover it with my Globelink policy and, fortunately, it is still with me:) So, there is no problem to travel with your gear.
