    Postage from Greece query 13th Mar 17 at 11:01 AM
    Hi, not sure if this is the correct place to post this.
    My daughter has just come back from a school trip to Athens, and has just realised that she has left 2 dresses and a top hanging up in the wardrobe.
    The hotel has told me that they will get a local courier firm to give me a price but I could also try getting a price over here.
    Any ideas who would quote and would it be worth it

    You need to try a parcel broker like Parcel2go or Interparcel. You could buy a label and e-mail it to them. It is likely to be at least 20.
    However I am guessing the hotel could get a better deal at home with their local postal service.
    If you arrange a courier then you'd need to give weight and size measurements. If the hotel got it wrong then you could be stung with extra charges.
    Unless they are designer clothes or have special value I'd not bother personally.
