Those heading off to festivals over the summer months are being advised to check their car insurance policies before setting off. Post Office Car Insurance are recommending that festival-goers double check their car insurance cover so as to ensure they are covered for damage and theft while away at their chosen event. With many people choosing to take expensive equipment away with them such as personal computers, music systems, mobile phones, and for the girls, hair straighteners, some insurance policies may not cover these items if they are stolen from your car while away at a festival. The Post Office is calling for all those attending festivals this summer to get in contact with their car insurers before they leave in order to clarify the terms of their cover, and possibly buy extra insurance if their current cover isn’t adequate. Simple precautions are also advised by insurers to help avoid being targeted by thieves such as keeping all valuables out of sight if they are left inside your vehicle. If you’re travelling with friends to a festival and are planning to share the driving, it’s important you add any extra drivers to your car insurance policy before letting them get behind the wheel.
