We value your feedback
The website was easy to use. Not overly complicated like other insurance companies I have used in the past. Being able to upload the required documents after purchasing the insurance was fantastic - easy and efficient. The benefits included as standard are a game changer. My insurance policy and documents were received really quickly afterwards also. I’m already recommending An Post Insurance to my family and friends. Thank you! Aisling 31.05.2021
