Post Office travel insurance hits pre-pandemic sales

Post Office sales of travel insurance have surpassed pre-pandemic levels for the first time since COVID-19 restrictions began. In the three weeks to 7th November, Post Office said it sold almost 5% more policies compared with the same period in 2019. This was up 651% on the same period last year.

Ed Dutton, product portfolio director for financial services at Post Office, said: "We are really pleased to see sales of travel insurance returning to pre-pandemic levels, following remarkable growth since the government relaxed restrictions on overseas travel.

“Notably, we saw rising sales later in the summer. Usually, they are falling at this point because growing numbers of people have already enjoyed their summer holiday. However, pent-up demand, our highly regarded brand and attractive product features appear to have produced strong upward momentum throughout the summer, with strong sales continuing into autumn.”
