Property to rent in Oxford: Secure student belongings

Property to rent in Oxford: Secure student belongings

Students seeking property to rent in Oxford, and other main university towns of the UK, should give serious consideration to insuring their belongings, Cashquestions.com has said.

Annie Shaw, director of the personal finance advice site, said every student needs to review their situation individually - for instance, those living in halls of residence may already be covered for fire or theft.

However, those living in flats to rent in Oxford should certainly ensure that they have insurance, as thefts at student properties are decidedly common.

"If you look at something like a music player that you lost that had all sorts of downloads on it, it could be worth quite a lot of money - so you need to add the value of your possessions and see how much cover you need," she explained.

With tuition fees set to rise from next year, students using property to rent in Oxford may need all the help they can get in reducing costs.ADNFCR-1222-ID-800691974-ADNFCR
