I wanted to send a parcel within the UK which weighed a couple of kgs and was worth £100. Royal Mail would have been £17. Looked into it and found myHermes which cost £7.60, would only have been £5.40 insured up to £50. They will collect from you or you can drop it off at a local collection point, in my case a convenience store a mile away. Good deal I think. Hope it reaches the recipient!
