Ah, that's a good point. Normally a pump is very unlikely to be stolen 
since it's attached to you, but a spare pump is more likely I suppose.

I don't understand why you can't the loan pump covered on your travel 
insurance, if your home insurance won't cover it? I've never bothered to 
insure any pump, but my travel insurance will cover named specified 
items like that.
