Student Insurance Essentials
At Cover4students we are always looking at student lifestyles and how we can develop our insurance for students to match the student's insurance requirements.
From feedback gathered over a number of years, it is clear that, as a result of numerous factors, not all students wish to insure all their personal possessions under one all-encompassing policy. Students have often got a level of insurance elsewhere, such as:
- With the University Halls of Residence which is automatically included as part of their accommodation.
- Covered by Parents home insurance for contents in your university halls.
- Already covered by another student insurance policy for your possessions but need to extend the cover for a new item or your current policy can't cover the item you wish to insure.
- Not leaving home and only require cover while travelling to and from university.
Whatever the reason we designed our insurance for students product cover to match these needs. We can now offer a flexible student insurance policy so that you can insure as many or as few items as you wish.
So whether it's the latest gadget, mobile phone or laptop we can cover it. We can also offer insurance for students, just for tuition / course fees or protection against the cost to resit an exam please see the tabs for a list of what we can cover.
