Once you move away from home, you may find that your belongings are no longer covered under your parents’ or guardians’ home insurance policy – and even if they are, it may not provide the level of cover you need. For example, your belongings may only be protected inside your university home but not whilst you’re out with friends or at lectures. It’s a good idea to check with your parent’s home insurance to see what the situation is.

If you do, then make a claim on your parent’s policy, whilst at university, you could find that the excess is higher on a home insurance and your parents could end up paying more for their policy with a reduction in their No Claims Bonus.
