Halloween proves a difficult period for insurance companies

Insurance company Aviva has today issued a statement warning customers to be wary of damage to their cars and burglaries over the Halloween and bonfire night period. The company has released statistics showing that on Halloween and bonfire night especially there have historically been significant increases in claims with regards to damage to motor vehicles and burglaries.

The figures show that car thefts and burglaries, not to mention damage to cars, increase by 25% purely and simply because of Halloween and bonfire night, a time when many people will be away from their home or at best, less vigilant than they normally are. The company has also issued a warning with regards to fire damage from fireworks and advised customers they should only buy fireworks from reputable retailers to ensure they are as safe as they can be.

There are also potential issues with regards to personal safety and the safety of guests, should you decide to hold a party in your home, which many insurance companies are advising customers to consider. Without taking the gloss off two potentially very enjoyable evenings there are issues which need to be addressed and safety needs to be paramount, no matter where you are or what you are doing.
