    Possessions Insurance - Abroad

    Possessions Insurance - Abroad 13th Mar 18 at 10:00 AM
    Hi all

    I'm about to go abroad for 6 months for work (USA) and would like to take out some insurance to cover my possessions. I don't need medical insurance as that's covered by my work. I'm leaving high value items at home in the UK but would like some cover just in case I was broken in to or my handbag was stolen. Is anyone able to recommend something suitable please?

    Many thanks

    In this county your possessions would be covered by your contents insurance if you took out the appropriate out of home cover. If the same concept exists in the USA that could be your best option, although ensure you can either cover just the period that you're there or can cancel without high fees/charges.
