Insurance coverage automatically included in the price of a shipment
Shipment's value is 20 €

Coverage is 20 € + shipping costs
Shipment's value is 100 €
and weight is 10 kg

40 SDR + 4,5 SDR x 10 KG (weight) =
40 SDR + 45 SDR = 85 SDR

85 SDR x *1,24 = 105.4 €
* with SDR's rate 1,24 €

105.4 € + 20,97 € (shipping costs) =
126.37 €

ATTENTION! The shipment's value of 100 € is lower than the calculated insurance coverage 126.37 €, so the coverage will be calculated as the sum of the value and shipping costs.
100 € (value) + 20,97 € (shipping costs) = 120,97 €
Shipment's value is 100 €
and weight is 5 kg

100 € (value) + 25,13 € (shipping costs) =
125,13 €
Maximum compensation

30 SDR x *1,24 + 10,74 € (shipping costs) =
47,94 €
* with SDR's rate 1,24 €
If the parcel's weight is 20 kg

40 SDR + 4,5 SDR x 20 = 130 SDR

130 SDR x *1,24 = 139,60 €
* with SDR's rate 1,24 €

139,60 € + 30,47 € (shipping costs) = 170,07 €
If the parcel's weight is 31 kg

130 SDR (maximum coverage for EMS) x *1.24 + 112,20 € (shipping costs) =
