The Post Office offers insurance products as well as part of its financial services arm.
Its car and home insurance are provided by BISL, which provides insurance services for a number of major financial brands, while its travel insurance is underwritten by Great Lakes Reinsurance and Europäische Reiseversicherung. Its life insurance is backed by Aviva.
Its ratings vary considerably from product to product. In travel insurance, it performs strongly and qualifies for one of our Gold Fairer Finance Ribbons.
But its car and home insurance ratings are not as impressive, thanks to a poor performance in our transparency analysis.
