The prices for shipping parcels with La Poste, either via Colissimo or Chronopost, depend on three main factors: the weight and size of the parcel, the country of destination and the type of service you have booked. In general, customers can ship parcels up to 30 kg, but small weight limitations may apply to specific services and routes. Colissimo and Chronopost deliveries can be scheduled to a personal address or a pick-up point, but only the latter offers express solutions.
Colissimo home deliveries are available to mainland France, Andorra and Monaco. Deliveries to pick-up points are only possible in mainland France. Deliveries to French overseas territories have different prices since they are considered as locations abroad.
|Parcel weight||Home delivery||Delivery to a pick-up point|
|Up to 1 kg||€ 8.10||€ 7.40|
