Hermes Delivery Price Increases Small Parcel 2kg to £4.20

Posted 23rd Apr
I just got an email saying it's increasing to £4.20 from the 2nd of May.

The website doesn't seem to have updated yet, nor include news of the increase.

What is it now
They can't handle current parcel volumes so price increase will definitely help without adverse effect on cash flow. Royal Mail will have more parcel then as they will be cheapest option.

What is it now


It's £4.05 now on the Hermes website.

However, I use Hermes via Parcel2Go, and it's currently about £2.84 (and there's an additional 2% discount if you top up your account with £100 credit in advance).

All my local parcel shops have stopped accepting parcels .
So I paid for small parcel delivery and no shops to drop off .
The £4.20 is for a 1-2kg parcel. Price is going up to £2.90 for a parcel under 2kg

Oh dear. Could you change it to "Collection" with the additional collection charge?

This has always worked for me the courier comes and scans your parcel and you will receive a confirmation receipt. This also works with parcel to go if you want to save 60p
