Can I use a regular stamp for international postage to the UK?
Yes, you can use a regular stamp when using mailing or postage services to the UK. Bear in mind that the delivery time may take longer with this standard option. If you need an express or premium postage service to the UK for a time-sensitive letter, you will need a first-class stamp.
How many stamps do I need to post a letter to the United Kingdom?
If you are posting a letter to the UK using regular mailing services, the size of your envelope will determine the number of stamps. The postal worker should give you the required number of stamps anyway. However, if you choose our Document Service to post a letter to the UK, you will not need any stamps.
Do I have to pay customs when posting a package to the UK?
If you post parcels to the United Kingdom from another country within the same free trade agreement, you should not have to pay customs. However, if your shipment crosses international borders, it will be checked by customs and you will be contacted as required for payment. Every country has different regulations, so we advise you to check this further on governmental websites. You can find more information on our page about shipping customs.
Where do I get the right packaging materials for posting items to the UK?
You can get packaging materials for posting parcels and letters to the UK in most stationery or hardware stores. It is important to choose appropriate packaging materials for the items you are posting to the UK to ensure maximum protection during transport.
