Please note, as from 1st July 2020 Royal mail will be increasing the shipping rates to the USA, consequently our rates will increase and the shipping costs to the USA will be much higher than currently.
The cost of sending mail to the US is to set to rise dramatically from July 1, as the combination of COVID-19 international flight restrictions and changes in US policies on postal rates for incoming mail combine to create a worrying precedent for international mail.
Royal Mail in the UK is one of a number of international mail providers affected by the circumstances, with the price of sending International standard parcels to the US increasing by 49% on average, and the price of International signed and tracked parcels sent to the US increasing by an average of 38%.
Most of Royal Mail's international mail is carried on commercial passenger flights. There has been a 95% reduction in air passenger flights globally following the outbreak of Covid-19.
According to Royal Mail, this has led to a "five-fold increase in our air freight costs to the US".
Our current postage charges are:
UK: minimum of £1.50, orders over £40 post free
Europe: minimum £6
Rest of world : minimum £8
We aim to ship all orders within 7 days, however some orders may take longer if they need to be cast up.
