Insure phones before South Africa holidays

People getting ready to go to Africa should make sure they have phone insurance.

Natasha Stokes, editor of Mobile Choice, noted when it comes to expensive smartphones, having cover is a good idea and so those going on holidays to South Africa may want to bear this in mind.

As well as this, individuals should ensure they have a feature enabled that means their personal information can be wiped from the handset in the event it is taken or lost.

If travellers have purchased the right level of cover, they will also be entitled to a replacement phone, which means they do not have to worry about people being able to contact them.

It comes after travel blogger Keith Jenkins stated Cape Town is still a popular destination for tourists looking for new experiences.

This is because it offers a "vibrant urban mix" of activities, as the city combines natural beauty and innovation in the sector.
