Some young girl behind the counter told me today that my packet by 1st class recorded WASN'T covered in the event it didn't get to the other end and signed for safely. I said I thought there was a limit of around £30-40 which was fine as its only worth around a tenner. She said that related to the postage costs which I could claim back if it wasn't delivered, but I couldn't claim for the parcel itself. She said what I needed was "special delivery" which was £5.44. She also said it wasn't a recent rule change
She has it wrong, surely????
