Do any of you know of any cheaper international parcel delivery options to ASIA?

Found 7th May 2008
I have been looking at various websites since morning to send a 2kg parcel to india with box dimensions 34cm X 17cm X 17cm - contents not even worth the quotes i have received ...

parcel2go.com
interparcel.com
postoffice.co.uk
ppwexpress.com

The contents value less than £30 but the quotes from all the above cheaper alternatives i had heard of come around a min of £43 which is very odd if you know what i mean ...

I opted for no insurance ...

I seem to guess they provide a quote on the basis of the volume of the space the parcel takes on the air plane ... i havent tried to pack the items into any smaller box as yet .... will give it a try if nothing else works ... though it is going to be a difficult task ...

I am just looking for a plain & simple international delivery ... no extras ... not time sensitive at all .. i m OK if it takes 4 weeks ...

Are any of you aware of any cheaper options ... ??

yes, as long as you can limit it to 2KG the price is £11.09 if it classifies as a 'small packet' (does it? - not sure about this)

That would be ideal but not sure if they would consider the box with 34cm X 17cm X 17cm as a small packet though ...

Do you reckon that would accept the small packet as the box with above dimensions .... ?

Should be fine Sanjay "The maximum dimensions for rectangular items are 610mm x 460mm x 460mm" the delivery estimate is "From 56 days."
