Polish postage stamp - how much does a single international stamp cost?

5 Jun 2015 #1
While I'm in Poland I'll be sending a lot of post cards to friends around the world. Does anyone know how much a single international stamp costs? I don't want to be surprised by the cost at all, as I know a few years ago stamps in the UK rose in price, and are now a ridiculous price. Thank you

In Poland it's common to take your envelope into the post office and show it to the assistant who gives you the stamps. It's cheaper than in the UK though. As I remember, for an international letter within Europe (up to about a couple of ounces weight) it's a bit under a pound. Best to use 'priorytet' (first class post, they have the little blue stickers on or near the counter) which is only 3 or 4 pence dearer.

50g letters

5 zl ordinary mail to Europe

Priority priorytet seems to be 16 zl,zagraniczny_przesylka_listowa_polecona.html

That price you quoted is for registered letters. An normal priority letter - 2 ounces, 5.20zl (a bit under a pound).,zagraniczny_przesylka_listowa.html

If you can read it Jon you'll see the original post says INTERNATIONAL, so not much point in you quoting domestic price priority is there hmm

If you can read it

It is a pity that you obviously did not open the link jon has posted. The clue is even in the link's address "zagraniczny" .......

Fair enough you win that one from the link I just checked but now got to find out why I'm getting charged a whole more than that for priority letters , I suppose they must just be over some limt, definitely way more than 5,20 a pop when I post DL envelope letters out to the UK and other patrs of the Eu on priority.....

Win? It isn't a contest!

Perhaps the charging thing is about envelope size?

Well yes sorry, am very competitive at times [blush]

Post office today, very small envelopes sent out with just 1 folded a4 invoice page per envelope - inland domestic rate was 4,20 zl each / szt for Pocztapolska delivery with a signature, non-priority. So IMHO 5,20 for international priority is a bit of a bargain in comparison it really is!
