Our opinion on the insurance

There is no real GLS shipping insurance: in fact they do offer protection up to £350 which is more the civil liability of GLS than real shipping insurance. It does entitle you to compensation in the event of the carrier's failure to carry out his duties.

However, for your valuable parcels and other ones, you will need real insurance and real protection. We advise you to use a third party one such as Secursus for example! We are reliable, cheap and protect your parcel up to £90,000.

Is additional insurance such as Secursus really useful?

With Secursus, you can insure your GLS parcels and get very clear insurance conditions and clear information about claim and reimbursement. Secursus will also support you to get a quick refund and support if needed.

Choosing Secursus to insure your GLS parcels will allow you to benefit from the best prices on the market, a cheap but qualitative insurance. Indeed, Secursus is not expensive at all and we allow you to insure parcels up to £90.000.
