Students need insurance too

It's that time of year when all the new fresh faced students head off to University for the first time. Due to the recession there are less part time jobs out there that are usually filled by students, so money is going to be tight.

Probably the last thing on any student's mind is home insurance, but once again due to the recession, burglaries are on the up and the last thing a cash strapped student needs is to be burgled and not have any insurance cover to replace valuables.

Students are an ideal target for robberies as they have all the latest gadgets and are usually in rented accommodation which may not have the best security measures.

Home insurance can be taken out as part of their parent's policy or they can have their own contents insurance.
