Royal Mail International Services to new countries with higher compensation
From the start of this week (10th October 2016) Royal Mail made their International Tracking and Signature services available to more countries.
International Tracked services are now available to: Greece, Serbia, Gibraltar, Faroe Islands, Greenland and Aland Islands.
Plus you can ship via Royal Mail’s International Tracked & Signed to: Barbados, Belize Cook Islands, Georgia, Lebanon, Russia, Tonga, Uganda, Faroe Islands, Greenland and Aland Islands.
Royal Mail also doubled the compensation they offer customers using its International Tracked products from £50 to £100.
What we really need from RM is better prices on airmail rates – we’re much more expensive here than Europe or the US.
Overseas customers are amazed to hear there is no fast airmail service available, since the withdrawal of swiftair some years ago.
So we’re paying more for overseas post and getting less for our money.
The tracking on USPS and other foreign carriers is much better than Royal Mail – all you often get is that the item has been passed to the overseas postal service for delivery. Thanks a bunch.
I was asked the other day by a customer in the US to enclose a copy of my receipt from RM as the price was more expensive than the item that I think they thought I was ripping them off!!!! I told them to check Royal Mail’s website for the prices so they can view them. Our postal system in the UK is embarrassing compared to other countries for the price they charge.
not worth the time and admin ,more chance of a win if you buy a lottery ticket
