A spokesperson for Sainsbury’s Home Insurance has announced that parents could be faced with enormous bills for accidental damage caused by their children or children’s friends during the half-term holiday. Sainsbury’s estimated that the cost of this could amount to over £100 million.

This week is half-term for many children in the UK and it can be a challenging time for parents keeping their kids entertained – particularly if the weather is bad and you have to spend time indoors, increasing the chances of something getting broken or damaged.

The bank anticipates that at least 900,000 people could encounter some property damage caused by children or pets during this holiday. However, the bank observed that for every incident of damage caused to a home by the children living there, as many as 3 incidents of damage are caused by their friends.
