Music Festival Visitors Advised To Get Insurance

Published: 6/30/2010

A fascinating fact about the music festival season is that three out of four people attending them lose possessions while there according to Zurich Insurance.

The study carried out by Zurich found that the typical value of items taken to music festivals by people is over GBP260. The most commonly taken possessions include mobile phones, cameras and MP3 players. The majority of items that go missing are simply left behind, in tents or in bags, with only 10 percent of them being stolen.

Good advice from Zurich Insurance is for festivalgoers to check with their home contents insurer that they will be covered at the festival they are attending. This way at least the financial aspect of losing personal possessions will be dealt with.
