I am an annual renewal customer, so when we booked a villa that was outside our policy, I rang them to ask about an early renewal. They said this couldn't be done and just to renew 28 days before the policy was due to end; they assured me our holiday would be covered (honoured was the word they used! So when I did ring to renew they said that this was no longer the case, but they renewed me anyway, offered me a discount (to apologise) and persuaded me to also pay for 'no excess'. When I was unable to access the villa due to my flights having been cancelled, The Post office have refused to pay out. Two other members of my party have been reimbursed by their insurance companies in exactly the same situation. I will never again use or recommend this company - shame on them, their service is a disgrace. Look elsewhere.

Post office wrote to me stating that I had contacted them for refund in August 2020. This was not the case and the post office agent confirmed this was true. This date is pivotal in the calculation of the refund. Despite them admitting this date was not correct they refused to give me a meaningful refund and would only calculate it based on August 2020. Compete farce!

Post Office Travel Insurance

I used Post Office Travel Insurance for a trip in April 2020 which was cancelled due to Covid 19. The company they use Intana has failed to respond or payout in 5 months. They are shockingly bad do not use their travel insurance

Worst Travel Insurance Cover ever - DO NOT BUY. Paid for the top level Premium Plus travel insurance cover, and added extra pandemic insurance. Holiday accomodation cancelled by owners due to Covid-19 reasons thereby making our booked flights useless. This is termed a 'consequential loss' according to our legal advisers. Airline not liable for refund as outward flight went ahead to Spain as normal in late July 2020 albeit with us not onboard. Post Office claim being handled by an insurance company for them called INTANA, who have been dreadful so far. Repeatedly quoting EU261 regulation to us and saying airline should refund us not them, both us and our legal adviser can see this is clearly not the case when you read this regulation and indeed the airline have refused to refund already. Formal complaint submitted to INTANA and was not handled by them as a complaint! Response was to quote EU261 back to us again and to add a new exclusion reason of "We Do Not Cover;

o) prohibitive regulations by the government of any country, or delay or amendment of the booked Trip due to government action;"

Neither us or our legal adviser can see how this exclusion applies to our case as the flight went ahead without any such change or regulation. The Post office insurers in the form of INTANA appear to be trying every means to try to avoid settling our legitimate claim. Have asked again for our claim to be treated as a complaint and reviewed by a senior manager, awaiting response. If unsatisfactory again intend taking this matter to the insurance Ombudsmen, MP and TV media, as so unhappy with their reponses and poor customer service. Others consumers need to know they are wasting their money buying Travel Insurance from the Post Office as it isn't worth the paper it is written on.

Terrible customer service. They make it very hard to contact them (especially during the Covid-19 pandemic). I had to cancel my holiday as I have an autoimmune disease and am at higher risk. When I finally managed to get through to a human being, they refused to refund me. I would not recommend the Post Office as a travel insurance provider. They quite obviously value profit ahead of customer service.

I was due to travel to Italy this weekend Friday 13 March 2020, but the FCO have said only but essential travel due to Coronavirus, This was a family trip and we are all covered by different travel insurance policies Barclays, Virgin Money and the Post Office. We were obviously disappointed but started the process with our claims Barclays and Virgin dealt with this in efficient manner claim forms sent within minutes. The Post Office however took a different stance they will not cover you I unless you added on disruption to travel whilst purchasing. They are only one of a very few insurers who will NOT cover you . Your policy won’t cover you now if you travel and they won’t pay out because you can ‘t travel does not seem fair! The Post Office is a long standing institution and you would have thought you would have been safe in their hands - NO. Please be wary of purchasing a policy and carefully read the small print. Very disappointed in the customer Service team very dismissive and not willing to listen and not wiling to refer me to a Manager. I suggest you think very carefully before purchasing a policy with the Post Office,

Going to America with my family this year looked like it was getting compilated and costly with insurance quotes hat were both expensive and confusing. The post office gave clear advice and covered us at a fraction of the cost others had quoted. I have asthma and this didn't affect the cost massively. I would recommend to anyone.

A few years back whilst on holiday our room got broken into and a few things were stolen. My camera was probably the most expensive item taken but The Post Office Travel Insurance were absolutely outstanding and sorted everything out for us leaving us with as less stress as possible. They really were brilliant! Ever since that incident I always use them for my Travel Insurance!

Excellent value and comprehensive

The insurance policy covered me for a pre existing condition . Usually you would have to pay a lot extra for this, and I struggled to find low cost travel insurance to cover me. The post office was just perfect.

The Best Insurance Ever

I was In Bali and Suffered a Monkey Bite. The Treatment for all the vaccines and medicine required is ridiculously expensive. Thanks to this great insurance I was covered and able to receive the full treatment needed.

While the policy was quite expensive, and could be a bit more generous on certain situations (e.g. only covers £500 for natural disasters), it is straightforward and easy to understand, and the process for getting a quote and buying the policy was also very easy, which I really appreciate.
