Aaduki provides specialist travel insurance for photographers and video makers, for shooting on location including war and terrorist threat zones.

Why work with a specialist?

Most travel insurance providers can only provide travel insurance for destinations that the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) advises are safe to travel to, but at Aaduki, we can also help with travel destinations that the FCDO advises against. We have a specialist policy which has been designed to cover the needs of travellers heading to higher risk zones (including war zones and areas where the risk of terrorism is high).

What’s covered?

Aaduki’s high risk travel insurance for photographers includes:

NOTE: unless we confirm in writing to the contrary, there is no cover under the ‘cancellation and curtailment’ and or the ‘missed departure’ and or the ‘travel delay’ sections for any claim caused by, or from the fear or threat of, coronavirus disease (COVID-19), severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), and/or any mutation or variation of SARS-CoV-2

“Just a quick note to say a big thank you for your help with sorting out this claim – quickly and efficiently”


“I have no hesitation in recommending them. None.”



“Fantastic service! Replaced my stolen 5D MK IV within a week ready for my next wedding shoot. Thank you to the team.”




Our clients often ask us:

Yes, we can cover locations where the FCDO advises against travel; there are some exceptions including Yemen and Syria.

Due to the current COVID-19 situation, we are not able to cover to any part of Africa or the USA. We also cannot cover travel to Syria or Yemen.

Our polices will cover medical expenses incurred due to COVID-19, but they will not cover any travel delays or cancellations caused by COVID-19.

Yes, we can extend trips for an additional premium even if you have already travelled.

All pre-existing medical conditions are usually excluded. However, provide us with full information on your medical condition/s and our underwriters will consider a number of factors when making a decision.

Can’t find the right level of cover to meet your Travel Insurance needs?

If you have pre-existing medical conditions which mean we can’t offer you the cover you want, or your premium is higher than you wanted, you may be able to get help by accessing the Money and Pensions Service travel directory at: https://traveldirectory.moneyadviceservice.org.uk/en or by calling 0800 138 777 (Open Monday to Friday, 8am to 6pm).

We’d love to hear from you!
