I now avoid all collect from home services, too many opportunities for excuses. Myhermes for instance has a really good network of drop off points. But I cannot find any discount parcel co for Europe parcels, that has has convenient drop off points. This is the next frontier!

Don't fully agree. They are actually the first party, the courier is the third party. I don't see that these companies can take their share of the profit when everything works but shrug off responsibility if things don't work - Certainly wish I could work like that.
As the people I'm dealing with and have the business relationship with it's down to them to have good procedures and good customer service to deal with problems with the third party courier if they occur.

Nice one. Had a glance at the rates - fixed price per item and no hint on their rates page of what the weight limit is? That's a first!

I need to send 2 parcels (each weighing 3.6kg) to family tomorrow (for Christmas). I looked on Royal Mail site for postage costs & it states £8.80 each standard parcels. However, has the last posting date for this option passed? There's no option I can see to check 2nd class prices, & I'm looking to send the parcels as cheaply as poss.

Last posting for standard parcels was 13th December. The most reliable vs cost way to get your parcels to your relatives now is Interparcel Economy. You may be tempted by the 15p cheaper city link service, but I wouldn't trust them at this time of year.
Interparcel economy is £9.58 and will be collected from your door. It is available from www.interparcel.com
