We're Human about Insurance 

Our customers know we'll keep our promise to protect them, whether they're at home or abroad. An Post Insurance is a 100% Irish-owned company, so we understand what matters most to you.

How We Help

Wallet-Friendly Protection

We know that everybody wants to get great value travel insurance, so we offer competitive prices if you have private health insurance and a 20% online discount to help manage the cost of cover (1).

Stress-Free Cover

Whether you prefer to holiday in Ireland, or go on an adventure abroad, get the peace of mind of good protection. If things go wrong while you're abroad you can rest easy knowing you will get the assistance, cover and care you need.

Customisable Cover

Along with great cover with a range of benefits to give you extra comfort, you can also purchase optional upgrades like excess car hire cover (2) to help you tailor your plan to suit your type of travel.

Real Customer Care

We're powered by people just like you, living in communities all over Ireland. While you're abroad, the Medical Emergency Assistance line is available 24 hours a day so you can get the help you need, when you need it.

1) 20% discount based on the standard price you would receive over the phone. Applies to online annual & single policies. Receive a discounted premium if you have private medical Insurance with overseas cover.  If you have Private Health Insurance (PHI) such as VHI, Irish Life Health or Laya Healthcare, you may already be covered for an element of overseas medical treatment. We will top up the medical expenses cover as outlined in the policy document.
2) These optional extras are subject to an additional charge; it is not necessary to purchase these upgrades in order to purchase the policy. 

Features & Benefits 

If you like to take more than one holiday a year, the Annual Multi-Trip Insurance Policy is a smart choice.  It offers peace of mind and protection for you and your family at home and abroad for up 90 travel days each year (to a maximum 30 days per trip) (3).  This means you don't have to arrange a new policy every time you go abroad, so you'll have more time for researching the best beaches! 

3) An Annual Multi Trip Policy offers cover for up to 90 days travel in the year, but no holiday can be longer than 30 days at a time. With an Annual Multi-Trip Policy, you can also be covered for holidays in Ireland provided that you spend at least two nights in accommodation you booked before your departure.

Yes. To protect your own interests you should purchase travel insurance cover at the same time you purchase your travel package. You can buy it at a later date but it will not cover events which have already occurred.

If you are buying a single trip policy, your cancellation cover begins instantly. If you are buying an annual policy, you can choose when your cover begins (up to 180 days in the future). If you have already booked a holiday, and have no other travel insurance arrangements in place, you should ensure your policy starts immediately, so you are covered for cancellation.

Yes, provided you have bought an annual policy. You must spend at least two nights in accommodation you booked before your departure. So a weekend break involving two nights in a hotel would be covered, but a day out and overnight stop wouldn't. If you have bought a single trip policy you will not be covered for holidays in the Republic of Ireland. Whichever policy you buy, some benefits are not payable for holidays in the Republic of Ireland. See the Policy Wording for full details.
