Millions of Brits with holiday and party plans for the bank holiday weekend are risking leaving their homes unattended without home insurance.

More than four million people who are planning a holiday this weekend have admitted they do not have home insurance in place.

Furthermore, another one million patriotic Brits who plan to host a Royal Wedding party or a barbecue over the next few days have left themselves open to a rather more expensive weekend than they might have expected by not having any cover.

With so many homes being left vacant but uninsured, Sainsbury's Finance has warned a costly bill might await unlucky homeowners who return to find their properties damaged or, even worse, burgled.

Worryingly, the latest data from Ageas Insurance and The Neighbourhood Watch Trust has revealed that domestic burglaries are up 14% in recent months and could increase throughout the summer months.

If you have no home insurance cover, or need to review your policy, shopping around is the best way to lower the cost of your home insurance.

Significant savings can be made just by using a comparison tool such as that offered by our partner beatthatQuote.com.

Many insurers also often have special offers to keep an eye open for.

Up to 30% can be saved on Nationwide Home Insurance when buildings and contents cover is bought together – Nationwide customers get an extra 15% off too.
