    Purchase Receipts:

    Most people do not keep receipts of all equipment purchased such as camera and smartphone that may be two years old or more. In the event of a claim, does it mean no receipt no claim?

      Hi Jesse,

      Thanks for your question.

      Travel insurance claims typically need to be supported with evidence like police reports or itemised receipts. Without these, claims can be denied as it will be difficult to prove the veracity of ownership. It would be best to always refer to your travel insurance’s policies terms and conditions to know the supporting documents required when filing for claims.

      I hope this helps.
