Our opinion on the Royal Mail insurance

Royal Mail insurance is an overall good product, but the coverage is limited to £250 for a parcel sent abroad and up to £2500 if you ship your parcel within the UK.
The insurance is working with a grid system, the insurance price depends on two things: the value of your parcel, and its weight. For example, a parcel worth £800 and weighing 100g will cost you £21.59 to insure, but £30.60 if it weighs 2 kilos.
The good thing is that the shipping costs are included.
