Burglary up by 14% and expected to rise

Domestic burglaries have risen by 14%, according to new statistics from the Home Office.

Worryingly, it is also widely expected that burglaries will continue to become more frequent due to the warm weather leading people to spend more time in their gardens and leave windows open.

According to home insurer Ageas almost half (47%) of adults do not keep their front doors locked when they are at home and 13% only lock their front door during the night.

Managing Director Mark Cliff said that the notion few burglaries happen when the home is occupied is nonsense, and that some imprudent homeowners leave themselves open to opportunistic burglars who take advantage of open windows and unlocked doors.

Recently, AXA Insurance warned of a surge in burglary during the forthcoming Royal Wedding, which is expected to see 40% of people out of the house and 21% enjoying a party at home.

Unfortunately, burglars have an eye for such occasions, including New Year’s Eve and Guy Fawkes Night, which tend to see spikes in burglary.

Luggage that is Not Claimed

Most travel insurance plans cover luggage that is delayed or lost during the trip.  This is useful for travelers who need their belongings, but the bags did not arrive with them.  Those travelers who don’t realize they are missing luggage may never claim them, either with the airlines or with travel insurance.  A recent article from MSNBC discusses what happens to unclaimed bags.

Along a country road next to a muffler shop and a cemetery is a 40,000-square-foot store filled with all the items that never made it home from vacation. Shoe

Car Insurance Premiums Are Increasing in the US

Car insurance coverage premiums are going up which is not surprising to most people because being insured has almost become a luxury for some when in reality it is a necessity. Most of the fifty states with the exception of New Hampshire require drivers to have at the very least liability car insurance coverage on their vehicles.

Americans are known for always being on the go. They often find themselves running late to appointments or work because they fall behind or got delayed. This leads them to commit speeding offenses in order to try to get to their destination much faster.

British homes “shop window” of opportunity for thieves

Ageas has joined forces with the Neighbourhood Watch Trust to persuade Britons not to make their homes a “shop window” of opportunity for thieves.

New research carried out on behalf of the insurer indicates that homes across the UK have an average £1,223 in valuables (such as TVs, other electronic goods, antiques and works of art) clearly displayed for would-be burglars to see through windows.

The findings also suggest that nearly one in five people have £2,000 or more worth of valuables on display to passers-by.
