Summer is in full swing now, which means that festival season is also upon us! Whether it’s UK-based or you’re travelling overseas to enjoy an international festival, you need to invest in phone insurance.
Festivals can be a tough place for your phone – rain, mud, drunk people spilling drinks, thieves… so make sure you’re prepared before you go! Statistics recently published by Aviva Insurance highlights an average 16% of festival-goers are affected by theft.
Here’s our top tips for keeping your phone safe:
1. Invest in a case
Take your phone in a case, even if you don’t think it looks as pretty to avoid unnecessary damage to it.
2. Take an extra battery source
Yes there are plenty of places where you can charge your phone at a festival, regardless of your network, but recently several festivals are offering the opportunity to purchase your own Power Bar so you can charge your phone independently.
3. Extend your phone’s battery
You can do this easily by reducing the brightness of the screen, de-activating Bluetooth, WIFI and GPS.
4. Activate phone tracking
This is your lifeline to stopping thieves in their tracks! You can download an App from the App store (we recommend ‘Find My iPhone’ for free on iPhone).
5. Register your device
The majority of phones and gadgets are unfortunately never reunited with their rightful owner because police can’t find out who they belong to. Make sure that your phone is registered so that you can increase your chance of seeing it again if you misplace it. It’s also a good idea to make a note of your phone’s IMEI number so that you can report it if it is stolen.
6. Most importantly… Get it insured!
