My insurance is a rider with Travelers that cost around $10 per $1000 with no deductible. All locations, including international. I've got musical instrument and photography equipment coverage, both with Travelers, but the brokers were independent companies. You might call Travelers direct for an even better deal, or not.

I've only been to the Caribbean, Canada and the UK with my photo equipment, but no hassles. I imagine that your experience can vary a lot by country. Why would they think you're going to sell it? I'd guess that'd only be a worry for someone traveling repeatedly to the same country.
