Check your policy small print
Unfortunately, thieves don’t take holidays and young people are three times more likely to be the victims of a burglary. It’s estimated that one in three university students are victims of a crime each year.
Even if you do have insurance cover in place, it’s still worth checking whether your cover extends to specifically cover the period while you’re on holiday.
We would love to be able to give you a definitive answer to the question here. Unfortunately though, that’s just not possible. Insurance covers vary from provider to provider and from policy to policy.
Irrespective of whether you live on your own, in a shared house or a university hall of residence, it’s important that you check the small print of your policy.
