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

During the COVID-19 pandemic only, all business equipment used while working at home will be included as standard up to the contents sum insured, unless otherwise covered. The level of cover provided by the policy will be outlined in your policy schedule.
Accidental Damage Cover is an optional benefit which extends cover to include accidental events, giving rise to a loss, e.g. a large spillage on carpet, if someone puts their foot through the ceiling.
If you have an emergency in your home, we will provide a repair service to secure your home and help prevent further damage from occurring. Cover for up to €260 per incident, limited to 3 claims per policy year.
This cover is underwritten by MAPFRE ASISTENCIA Compania Internacional De Seguros Y Reaseguros, S.A., trading as MAPFRE ASSISTANCE Agency Ireland.
Excess is the amount payable by you, in the event of a claim. Under this policy, you will be required to pay a standard excess. You have the option to increase the excess, which will reduce your premium. Please refer to your policy documents to find out what excess is applicable.
Reinstatement value is the cost of completely re-building your house (less the value of the site) including architects and surveyors fees. It is important to note that the reinstatement value is the figure for which your house should be insured, rather than the market value of the house.
