The Silver Gadget Policy, which costs £15, insures up to five electronic items to the value of £2,000. The cover is valid for 17 days, and will pay out if any item is stolen or accidentally damaged.
The insurance is available as an add-on to customers who make an airport hotel or parking booking with HolidayExtras.com.
Andrea Clayton, Head of Insurance, commented: “Losing your treasured holiday snaps would be bad enough … losing your expensive camera at the same time would be a complete kick in the teeth!
“This new type of cover can’t protect the irreplaceable, but if you happen to drop your smartphone in the pool or your laptop gets swiped, it could be a financial bonus.”
