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. Car insurance from the Post Office can apparently save you up to £200 with varying levels of cover and all the extras you would expect from the larger brands, this is due to the POst Office using a panel of insurers to locate the best deal for you. This sort of brokering is common these days and the Post Office's car insurance is administered by BISL Ltd who are also responsible for Budget so their experience in this area is substantial. Post Office car insurance even offers "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 to ease the strain on your finances.
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 items 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, Blue-Ray 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 more possesions in your home!
