Festival Travel Insurance - Get Covered

Summer is the perfect time of year to head off to a festival - there are plenty to choose from, from music and dance festivals to food festivals offering tempting treats. Make sure you have the right festival insurance policy for everything you need.


Music Festivals

The UK is home to some great music festivals, from T in the Park to Download - there's something to suit all tastes. It's a good idea to book your tickets in advance, particularly if you're looking for the full-on experience of camping on-site for the weekend.

Camping tickets usually sell out quickly and you'll be forced to shell out for a local hotel - prices can be extortionate as many local establishments take advantage of festival time to hike their prices ahead of demand.

No matter which festival you head to, travel insurance from is a great idea. You can take single trip travel insurance to cover yourself and your belongings, or add extras such as gadget travel insurance to make sure your gadgets will be protected on your adventures.


When things go wrong

If you're camping at a music festival this year, you might find yourself the victim of less-than-perfect hygiene and dodgy tummies are no laughing matter! If you're abroad, things could get serious - visiting a doctor or local hospital could cost you hundreds of pounds, so travel insurance is a must to protect you if the worst happens.You could lose your luggage - stories of tents and belongings being stolen are rife these days and when you add in the cost of replacing gadgets such as your smartphone and MP3 player, you could find yourself having one very expensive holiday indeed.

With travel and gadget cover, you can rest safe in the knowledge that your expensive gadgets and even your clothes are protected in case of damage or theft, so you can focus on enjoying the music.

Even if you decide to head to something a bit more relaxed this summer - such as a gourmet food festival or beer fest, the chances are you'll be travelling across the country for a long weekend away.

Travel and gadget insurance will protect you no matter where you're heading and what you get up to, leaving you worry-free and ready to sample all the delicious delicacies on offer.
