Drivers leave uninsured laptops in cars

Half of vehicles parked at motorway service stations or in city centre car parks contain uninsured hi-tech possessions worth up to £1,000.

According to a survey of 119 motorists by Supercover Insurance, 61 of them regularly leave uninsured valuable hi-tech equipment like laptops, sat navs, MP3 players and spare mobile phones in their cars. But only 15 knew for certain that they had insurance to cover any loss.

Carmi Korine of Supercover Insurance said: "What most drivers didn't realise was that the majority of motor insurance policies simply do not cover loss of contents from a vehicle - or have a very low level of cover at best."
