What is Express Post and Parcel Post suitable for?

Express Post and Parcel Post are suitable for sending items up to $100 in value. If your item is valued over $100, you should purchase Extra Cover – it provides loss or damage cover from $100 up to $5,000. Express Post and Parcel Post is not suitable for items over $100 such as jewellery, electronics or passports unless Extra Cover is purchased.

If your parcel is lost or damaged, and you haven’t purchased Extra Cover, compensation of up to $100 and a postage refund may be payable. Subject to the Australian Consumer Law, Australia Post does not accept liability for any consequential or indirect loss or damage arising due to any failure related to our service. Neither the compensation included with our Express Post or Parcel Post service nor the purchase of Extra Cover limits any rights you may have under the Australian Consumer Law.
