As the summer holidays draw to a close many students are faced with the reality of returning to university. However, after the holidays you need to make sure that all of your possessions are properly covered and Endsleigh has some advice for students on what to insure before returning to campus.
Firstly, take an inventory of all your possessions and be sure to include everything of value. So make a list of your shoes, gadgets (laptop, iPod, gaming console, television, etc), appliances you might have and of course your car, should you be lucky enough to have one.
Secondly you will need to get in touch with a student insurance provider, like Endsleigh, to find out how much it would cost for you to insure your possessions. Be careful not to sign the first best policy you receive, you need to shop around to find a student's contents insurance policy that suits your needs and vitally, your budget.
The first step to protecting your possessions is however not to take out a student insurance policy, but to look after your things. Little things can make a huge difference; just by ensuring your dorm room (or flat) is locked is a great start. Put away your gadgets and gizmos when you aren't using them because leaving them lying about is an open invitation to any prospective thieves.
So keep your possessions out of sight when you aren't at home and make sure they are locked away properly. If you don't have anything to lock them away in you could consider investing in a little safe or lockable cabinet for extra protection.
