Enhanced Liability

Shipping Insurance for Total Peace of Mind

At TNT, we take the utmost care with every shipment, but some circumstances are simply beyond our control. So, to help keep your consignments protected, we offer our own shipping and courier insurance, namely TNT's enhanced liability cover. This specialist delivery insurance covers the full value of your goods and means that whatever items you’re sending with us, these will be protected against any unforeseen circumstances as an insured delivery.

Every shipment we accept is covered by standard global conventions as specified in our Terms & Conditions. However, this isn’t full parcel delivery insurance and only offers limited liability based on weight and not the actual value of your shipment.

This is where our parcel and post insurance policy can help provide the protection you need. This is because with TNT's enhanced liability parcel insurance, there’s no need to use a separate insurance provider. You’ll could receive all the postal insurance cover you could possibly need.

There are certain items that can be carried, but this is at your own risk and as such are not covered by our postal insurance. Take a look at these items in the graphic below:
