who knows of any insurance to insure our stuff while on trips?
1. if someone steels your stuff out iÃƒÂ³f the car
2. if your stuff never arrives at the airport?
Both situations are really scary! Can't image what I would do...

here's situation 3: if your stuff arrives at the airport, but one of those luggage trucks abused your boardbag as driveway ... happened to a friend of mine - his board looked like a victim in a splatter-movie. his luck was, that it was a real cheap board which pissed him off anyway ... but here's the real joke:
sport equipment which got destroyed is paid per weight. so, a Ã¢â€šÂ¬999,- custom wakeboard will get you about Ã¢â€šÂ¬30 ... .
nice, isn't it?

Speak to your travel agent, and get a specific insurance that will cover your equipment. The price depends on the value of the equipment as well as the length of the stay. Here in Switzerland, I managed to get one, that included the purchase of new equipment during the trip, if needed. It is expensive, but could prevent your trip from becoming a nightmare!

Not much, but I can't remember actually.
I am now looking to insure my gear for a 6 months trip. I managed to have a deal at around 350 swiss francs (Euro 240), but the value insured is limited to 8'000 swiss francs.
