In the wake of economic instability, staycations have gained popularity with British tourists in recent years. Varying exchange rates, rising air fares and instability abroad mean interest in UK holidays has remained strong. But with guaranteed sun and cheap meals out to be found abroad, it can be difficult to know whether to stay at home or jet away.

If you lose your passport when you’re abroad, you’ll likely need to sort out Emergency Travel Documents. And you won’t be alone. Last year, the FCO reported that lost passports abroad cost Brits £5 million a year, with 30,000 Emergency Travel Documents issued.

These days a suitcase full of holiday essentials can easily be worth hundreds of pounds, if not thousands.

So how can you make sure your valuable possessions are not at risk when you set off on your holidays?

John Brady, Head of Commercial at John Lewis Insurance tells you how to keep your valuables safe on holiday.
