Royal Mail finally offer an international parcel service that will track your parcel all the way to the final international destination AND get a signature!

It is a little slower than Airsure BUT surprisingly cheaper!!
e.g. small parcel to Portugal under 500g £10.15

Unfortunately the service is not available for all countries

double the price to get delivery confirmation (£5.15 vs £10.15) ... rip-off

not much but i.e same service, from other (smaller) EU member cost less than £5 (delivery confirmation option just 50p!!!) so to send the parcel is more or less the same (here bit more expensive but channel to cross) but just delivery confirmation 10x more expensive !

they have offered this service for quite a few years just changed there name for it

it always used get confirmation within eu. only problem was with australia.

Stopped using this type of service because after trying standard air-mile delivery a few times I discovered that my parcels were being delivered in less than half the time for less than half the cost of signed for.

This deal was meant to highlight the saving compared to the existing Airsure
and International Signed For.

Royal Mail is expensive but if you need to send small parcels abroad and you
want to be able to track them and get a signature from the receiver, what other
company offers a cheaper service??

you need to consider the compensation for loss as well that you get .. untracked (half the cost of tracked) is something £20 on a discretionary basis (they say they "may" pay it), on tracked it was something like £50 again on a discretionary basis

I'm not that fussed about tracked as long as it has compensation/proof of delivery is in place

Lets hope the DE post firm enters the UK market for this type of service and drives down the cost

Be cautious of the 'signed for' aspect of this service. I used it to send an eBay item,which although according to Royal Mail had been signed for, the buyer denied it and Paypal asked for a proof of signature, which isn't actually part of the service!! I lost my goods and payment as due to the lack of signature Paypal went in their favour!

"Signature on delivery
A signature is taken on delivery for items sent using International Tracked & Signed and International Signed. However, we do not provide a copy of the signature to you as part of the service"

I've spent a fortune sending parcels to Norway. I learnt my lessen when a few that I had sent unsigned for went 'missing' as soon as leaving the Uk. The ones that did manage to get to Norway would then sit there on there end for days, even weeks, on end... even though I had paid for delivery to the door of and signature of the recipient.

If its Ebay item we have stopped selling international because of this reason, now only sell UK. However, when someone requests and really want it we always say that we take no responsiblity or accept any loss on messages we send.
