I telephoned the Post Office to get holiday insurance for this weekend - 6 days in Mallorca for a family of 4. Â£27 which I thought was reasonable but when I gave a BFPO address they changed their mind and gave me their 'military department'. I telephoned the 'military department' of the Post Office which was answered 'PAX insurance how can I help'? They then quoted me Â£42 for the exact same insurance. When I asked why there was so much difference between their quote and the PO, it was explained that theirs covers cancellation due to posting or deployment. I explained that I was not due either posting or deployment between now and Saturday - this made no difference on the quote. Needless to say I have gone to a German travel agent to get cover.
