/ Help - posting a letter to Poland from the UK.
Hey... they dont call me postie for nowt!
As said above, you're going to have to go down to the PO to sort this one out.
The alternative is, you can guess and get it wrong. It'll be returned to you as being underpaid.
(always.. ALWAYS.. use a return address.. especially for International mail. )
But... if you are posting magazines abroad.. ask for "Book Rate" .. it should get you a discount. Or "Paper" rate. .... (yeah, I know you are sneaking some birthday cards in... just don't tell them.. and FFS dont include any real money in them!)
But do include your return address.
Hope that helps.
If any one is returning home to Poland, and wants to get a shedload of non valuable gear back very cheaply, I can help there too... I used to get some Japanese mates stuff home, first class post , for 1/10th the cost of posting it by normal mail. Just by knowing the rules.... ;)
OK, just gone away and looked it up... because things have changed while I haven't been a postman.....
But if you go to royalmail.com/portal/rm/content1?mediaId=53800712&catId=400036
royalmail.com >>>> delivery services >>> overseas>>>>prices (prices is left hand column)
Then you get the matrix of costs... look at the right hand column, after "Europe" and "rest of World" and you see "Printed Papers"
I don't know what you are sending... but.. ;)
Everything to Europe below 80g is £1.07 .. at Printed Paper rate.
It's hard to describe the tariff... but, you are better sending it PP rate... if it is over 80g. ;)
Weirdly.. you can send something at "letter rate" and it will cost you more than at "paper rate" over 80g.
And it ALL goes on the same plane out... there's no real reduction in service!
