Trip insurance to cover belongings in case of mugging or burglary?

Jump to last reply

Planning my first trip out of the US for my honeymoon in Italy. My boss was just in Rome for 4 days and the last night at the hotel he returned to his room to find his room tossed - personal cell phone, company cell phone and laptop, plus 1,000 euros gone.

So, now I am freaked out. I have read to be weary of pickpockets and possibly muggers, and am typically paranoid of leaving anything valuable in a room without a room safe.

We plan to travel light, but will have either a laptop and/or an ipad and our two smart phones.

I am confirming with each of our hotels whether room safes are available or if they have a safe at the office we can use. But though I might add some insurance to our trip. However, trip insurance appears to be for cancellations/interruptions. I can put locks on the suit cases, but if they can just roll them out the door, not sure that is a solution. Any idea if there is a way to insure your belongings?

I also thought of doing Traveller's checks, but they seem very antiquated and I am not sure how readily they are accepted in Italy these days.

I also thought to check with American Express, since we have booked the majority of the trip through them.

I appreciate any suggestions!!!

Super excited, but now completely apprehensive :.|
