  1. Hello, I need to send some cash to a relative in Italy. I could either send him money through the bank but I would prefer to send him some leftover Euro banknotes through the post (International Signed For seems the only option). I have researched on the RM website and Italy is not listed in the countries that don’t allow cash to be sent: http://www.royalmail.com/delivery/mail-advice/sending-cash However at the Post Office they were not very sure about this and they have shown me their own internal intranet page about Italy that says explicitly that cash not is not allowed, unless sent via insured mail. Now, according to this thread: http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?267107-Royal-Mail-won-t-honour-compensation-claim-on-Int-l-Signed-For-delivery it would seem that even buying additional compensation (£2.60) would NOT constitute a form of insurance. I have called the RM helpline on 08457 740 740 and the operator has told me that additional compensation IS a form of insurance, but in the case of cash only up to £100 per envelope. my question is: where does the law stand on this? And is it overall a relatively safe way to send money or am I better off using bank transfer? Thank you
