Is your festival tent insured?

Is your festival tent insured?

With the summer festival season approaching fast, moneysupermarket.com has urged festival-goers to check if their home insurance covers possessions stored in a tent.

a�?Tents can be left unguarded for hours at a time, so while it’s essential not to leave valuables lying around, it is also important to check your insurance will cover you if necessary,a�? said Steve Sweeney, head of home insurance at the price comparison site.

a�?If you are unfortunate enough to be a victim of theft, many home contents policies will cover you for items such as your mobile phone, ipod or camera if you are away from home at very little cost,a�? Sweeney added.

Barclaycard, for example, offers cover for up to A?1,000 of possessions whilst away from home for an extra A?30 on its home insurance policy.

This is a a�?small price to pay for peace of mind to enjoy your time away,a�? Sweeney said.

Sweeney also suggests that Brits attending festivals abroad take out travel insurance.
