Home away from home
Your son or daughter might not be the only valuable leaving your home when they go to university or college.
To save you the hassle of taking out a separate policy, Hiscox Home Insurance provides complete student insurance cover for all their possessions, including laptops, smartphones, clothing and sports equipment. While the total value of these items is often overlooked when kitting out a student room, insurance at this stage can prove vital in protecting the tools they need for their education and other valuables that make the journey to their student residence.
Why you might consider student insurance
- The total value of a student’s belongings – laptops, MP3 players, clothing – could be worth more than you think.
- Your existing home insurance may not cover these items at a student residence.
- Students often carry expensive portable technology that can be damaged or lost when travelling.
- Student residences, including shared houses, can be less secure and more vulnerable to theft.
