University students should check their parents' home insurance policy before buying their own contents cover as it may an unnecessary expense warns broker Hastings Direct.
Shaun Law, head of household insurance, Hastings Direct: "Good quality household insurance policies can offer protection for students even if they are not living at home."
"At Hastings Direct we offer policies which include up to £5,000 contents cover, for the students' possessions providing they are living in the university's halls of residence."
"Moving to college is an expensive time and if mums and dads choose the right contents policy, they can be sure their child's possessions are protected at no extra cost."
