Just a little information re Royal Mail

I was in the post office yesterday and a lady wanted to post a parcel to australia it was just over 2kg - the postmistress said it would be £63 to post -then she said if you split it into two packets under 2 kg it will come to £11 per packet = £22 saving £41
dont know if anyone else knew this but I surely didnt
Apparently anything over 2kg has to go parcel post and under can go packet or letter
sorry for the people who already know this but I found the information good

I think it's true for all overseas post, I had to point out that anything that weighed over 2kg would be very expensive to post unless it could be split into smaller parcels![/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
