When shipping a parcel with transport insurance, you can insure items up to a maximum value of EUR 25,000.
However, certain items (class II valuables) are only allowed up to a value of EUR 500 per day and recipient. So valuables of this kind with a value exceeding EUR 500 cannot be insured. For shipping within Germany, this includes:
|Securities (money-equivalent instruments honored by banks), e.g.:
||Other valuables, e.g.:
|Valid postage stamps (German and foreign)
||Cash (currency and coins)
|Dividend certificates, profit-share certificates
||Precious metals, e.g. gold, silver, platinum
|Checks, blank traveler's checks
|Admission tickets and travel tickets (transferable)
||Watches, except wearables (e.g. smartwatches)
|Revenue stamps, interest coupons
||Works of art, paintings, antiques, one-of-a-kind items and other precious objects (e.g. items with value to collectors such as stamps, coins, figurines, etc.)
