London, UK (PRWeb UK) July 7, 2010
Some £2bn will be spent this summer on creating the perfect World Cup armchair experience, according to the Post Office World Cup Spending Report.
As a result the Post Office is urging home insurance policy holders to ensure their home insurance cover is up to date and includes things like accidental damage in case they need to claim on their contents insurance.
Watching the games at home may seem like a good way to save money but the cost of entertaining and creating a party atmosphere can be expensive, particularly if high value items such as HD TVs are not included on your house insurance policy. Almost one-third (30 per cent) of football fans admit they will be increasing their personal spending by up to £200 each this summer - amounting to a £2bn total.
Gerry Barrett, Head of Post Office Insurance, said: "It's important to make sure that any World Cup investments such as new TVs are fully covered in case an accident occurs in the midst of football fever. The last thing you want is an own goal when it comes to your home insurance."
Post Office Home Insurance includes accidental damage cover for items such as TVs, however the Post Office advises people to check their home insurance policy to ensure they are fully protected.
Post Office Home Insurance provides peace of mind for people's belongings through its contents insurance, which protects against accidental damage to TVs and other home items.
