Overview: The Post Office's reach has continued to expand over the years becoming a one stop shop for all things relating to life in the UK from home phone lines to insurers to broadband (the less said about the Westlife ads the better though). Car insurance from the Post Office can apparently save you up to ?200 (at the time of writing this) with varying levels of cover and all the extras you would expect from the larger brands, this is because they use a panel of insurers to locate the best deal for you. This sort of brokering is common these days and the PostOffice's car insurance is administered by BISL Ltd who are also responsible for Budget so their experience in this area is pretty huge. You can even get a "new for old" replacement should your insured vehicle be under 12 months old. With all this you get optional breakdown cover and there are flexible payment options on the whole lot.
Post Office Home Insurance has no less. Each policy can be tailored to your specific needs so that you don't end up paying for things that you don't need cover for, this results, they said, in an average saving of around 30% compared to your current policy. Included in the Post Offices buildings protection policy is Home Assistance, which provides 24-hour assistance for home emergencies like burst pipes and blocked drains. Home contents cover is the cover you need to protect the things in your home but which also covers you for personal possessions when you're away from home, (such as a cameras, and mobile phones) as well as accidental damage to TVs, VCRs, DVD players etc. and extends even further to garden contents, replacement locks and keys plus any freezer contents. You can also combine buildings and contents insurance to be fully protected and, like most insurers, as an extra bonus they will automatically increase your cover at Christmas time when you're likely to have much more stuff in your home!
There seems to be some confusion over the location of the PostOffices websites with many typing in strange variations, some even with .gov and .gov.uk endings into our search facility. To clarify, the address you should bookmark is www.postoffice.co.uk (www.thepostoffice.co.uk redirects there also) with www.postoffice.com and www.thepostoffice.com both being owned by different companies. Although the Post Office's websites are linked to by the RoyalMail there are no Royal Mail insurance services as all financial products are sold through their PostOffice brand. †
