    Cheapest Way to Send Parcel to Germany 9th Nov 07 at 10:42 PM
    Hi guys,

    Does anyone know of a cheap way other than the post office to send a parcel to Germany? I tried the post office but the price they have quoted is £34.00!! The parcel weighs 6kg (13lbs).

    Thanks.

    Royal Mails the cheapest and for 6kg
    I would say thats a bargain price.
    Cheapest on the websites £61
    it costs £10.88 for 2kg
    perhaps you could split it up into seperate
    parcels.

    try Payperdrop on Ebay, I have never used them for overseas but their uk service is brilliant value. I've never had any problems with them either.

    No problem. Their website is www.interparcel.com. You just key in the dimensions of your parcel as well as the weight and the website tells you immediately how much it will cost. You can also track your parcel as well.
