By default, your parcel is insured according to the CMR conditions. According to these conditions, your parcel is insured based on its weight (+/- 9 euros per kg).
With the option “higher insurance” you can insure the parcel up to a maximum of € 520. For this higher insurance you only pay € 1 extra per parcel. The higher insurance is activated in step 2 of the shipping process.
In both cases the insurance only applies when the parcel meets the packaging conditions and is allowed in the DPD network. More information can be found in the general conditions of DPD Web Parcel.
