It is fair to say that Brits love the summer. With picnics in the park and barbeques in the garden, it is easy to remember why it is the nation’s favourite season. However, the warm weather and late evenings, can provide ideal opportunities for burglars. As we leave our windows open to catch a breeze or leave our house dormant for two weeks to go on holiday, we make ourselves a prime target for thieves. This is why Churchill home insurance, the experts in home and contents cover, is here to offer you some great advice for safeguarding your home this summer.

There has been a rise in a new type of burglaries. Whereby traditional burglars would target high value items, criminals are now targeting PINs for bank cards and bank account details. Considering that two million UK adults keep written versions of their pin and bank details in plain sight around the house, this could have devastating consequences.

To deter these burglars, there are a number of preventative measures you can take. If you are off on holiday, purchase lights with a timer setting or invest in a monitored alarm system. Ask a neighbour to clear your entrance so that papers/fliers don’t build up. Lock the doors, even when you are inside the house, particularly if you are using your garden and be sure to remove visible valuables from the road. Just to be on the safe side, ensure that you have adequate contents insurance should you be unlucky enough to get burgled, visit for more details.
