Our research revealed that one in seven people have lost their phone at a festival and around half don’t know what to do if that happens.

Gary Beeston (Sales & Marketing Director) from Better Buy Insurance, says: “It’s shocking to see that so many Brits lose their phones at a festival. We are seeing more and more people taking out insurance policies in preparation for all their summer plans and it’s reassuring for them to know that if the worst does happen, you’re not without your device for long.

“With so many exciting festivals taking place over the summer months, we hope our customers find our advice helpful and for the three quarters of people that think it would be a nightmare to lose their phone, we hope we can make their life just that bit easier!”
