Bank charges: Brits advised to leave valuables at home during festival season

Brits looking to avoid bank charges should think about leaving their valuables at home when they go to any festivals this summer.

Recent research by Post Office Home Insurance has found that the average person will spend £187.30 just on tickets, food and accommodation.

Findings revealed that 76 per cent plan to take a digital camera along, while 34 per cent will have a smartphone with them.

Gerry Barrett, head of home insurance at the Post Office, said: "People are already spending hundreds of pounds on events this summer, so it is wise to avoid facing further financial demands by making sure any valuable items are fully protected against loss, damage or theft.

"Leaving high value goods such as laptops or iPads at home is probably the safest approach."

He added that if people still want to take their gadgets with them, they should check their home and travel insurance policies before going to see what is covered and what is not.
