Travel insurance to cover valuables

Found 6th Jul 2007
Hey folks, I'm going over to Rhodes for two weeks and trying to sort out travel insurance. I had initially booked through Elephant but they only cover items up to 250 pounds which is not enough for me, I'm planning on taking two dslrs (Olympus E-510 & Panasonic L1), one normal lens(Leica D 14-50mm), telephoto(50-200mm), macro/prime(ZD 50mm), fast prime(Sigma 30mm), flash(FL-36), teleconverter(EC-14), hi-def camcorder(Canon HV10) and Archos 504 160GB.

The total value is a reasonably large amount of money, does anyone have any recommendations - I only need the cover for two weeks, the rest of the time they're fine. Also one concern I have is that I bought some of the equipment second hand or for a good deal brand new, if I only got the amount I paid back it's unlikely I could replace most of the equipment. Do any companies offer to replace the items like for like?

Thanks for any thoughts,

From what I've been reading so far, that seems the norm unfortunately.

The other option I'm considering at the moment is just to take one body and two cheap kit lenses so all is not lost if something happens. Bit frustrating through when I've invested in high quality lenses.
