Route Package Protection

What is Route Package Protection?

We know how frustrating it is to have something happen to your order, so we’ve partnered with Route to offer added assurance that you’re supported, no matter what.

Route Package Protection is a protection solution that helps cover your order in the event that your order gets lost, stolen, or damaged while in transit. Protection is optional, and can be added during checkout. 

Note: The Route mobile app is optional. You do not need to use this app to track or manage your order.
