Rucksacks or Handbags-Will You Be Taking Yours to a Summer Festival This Year?

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - July 18, 2011) - As the Summer Festival season1 has now arrived Legal & General recommends that festival goers ensure they have adequate home insurance cover for the personal possessions they wish to take to events.

Having a rucksack, handbag or the contents stolen can be extremely upsetting. So rather than realise that you are not insured if it should happen, Legal & General is recommending that people check they have cover in place before they go – just in case.

With men and women often having to carry around their belongings at these events, Legal & General recommends they check the value of the bags they plan to take and their contents. The value of the belongings, as well as the value of the bag itself can quickly add up. Typically, the value of an average bag and the contents can easily be worth £1,8002.

To help you, we've calculated the value of a handbag or rucksack that you might be planning to take along with you to a festival and how the various contents could add up. Visit http://www.legalandgeneral.com/insurance/home-insurance/insurance-news-articles/rucksacks-or-handbags.html for more information.

Legal & General's home contents insurance offers cover for personal possessions away from the home as an optional benefit and this includes cover for a rucksack or handbag and its contents. You should first check that you have cover for personal possessions as an option under your home insurance policy and then check the level of cover available to ensure it is sufficient for the personal possessions you own – which could be particularly important if you have a taste for designer accessories.
