As the world cup final approaches, new research from the Post Office has revealed that nine out of 10 UK football fans are watching some or all of the World Cup action from the comfort of their living room, with many having splashed out on extra home comforts beforehand.
The research found that, some 24 per cent of football fans have bought a new plasma TV for the tournament, 14 per cent have bought a new barbeque and 8 per cent have even looked into a new fridge.
Post Office Home Insurance advises that anyone buying or planning to buy any high value items for their homes to ensure their home insurance policy, including home contents insurance, is up to date.
According to the Post Office World Cup Spending Report, just short of one-third of people (31 per cent) are inviting friends round to watch the games with them, meaning there is plenty of opportunity for World Cup parties which could increase the change of accidental damage to people's homes and lead to home contents insurance claims.
To be prepared and make sure they don't find themselves out of pocket, the Post Office is advising homeowners to make sure they have a home insurance policy which will cover things like accidental damage should they need to claim on their house insurance.
The Post Office advises people to check their home insurance policy to ensure they are fully protected should an accident occur during World Cup celebrations.
