Client in 300lb Bombay mix claim

Backchat was amused by some wacky insurance claims, details of which were posted on the web.

One pensioner claimed for false teeth lost while vomiting over the side of a cruise ship. The dentures were covered under “lost baggage”.

A couple travelling in Malaysia successfully claimed after a monkey climbed into their chalet through an open window and tossed their clothes around the resort and the neighbouring rainforest.

In another, one hungry traveller claimed to have lost £300 of Bombay mix, the spicy snack. At about 89p for a 250g bag, the misplaced mix would have weighed 84kg, according to the Times Online.

His insurer rejected the claim.
