International courier services you can trust
Items can be delivered straight to the recipient's door or a pick-up point if the person you're sending it to is often away from their home. Postage Supermarket also offers to help with the admin that is often involved in international shipping, to streamline the service as much as possible. This customer-focused approach has seen us partner with major delivery brands that share the same values. These include:
In most cases, we even provide free cover should anything happen to the parcel; just one example of the confidence we have in our courier services.
Our international postage rates
We ship to 200+ countries around the planet, with a variety of delivery options available to suit your specific needs. Our economy services offer a cost-effective option to send parcels at a slower speed, while our premium express packages are a little more expensive but get the items to their destination much faster.
Next day delivery is even available for some major cities, providing a rapid door-to-door delivery experience.
Whichever shipping service you pick, they will always cost less than going to Royal Mail or the partner courier service companies like DHL directly; whether you're sending the parcel to the USA, Australia or anywhere else on the planet.
Below, you can take a look at some of the most popular locations we deliver to, along with a starting price on how much the overseas postage would cost.

Frequently asked questions about international postage
How do you calculate postage?
Typically, a volumetric-based system is used, which means the price is based on either the total size or weight of your parcel. The formula for working out the volumetric weight of a parcel is 'length x width x height / 4000', which our instant quote system works out automatically.
How do I know if my envelope needs extra postage?
It must be three things; less than 5mm thick, weigh less than 100g and also be smaller than 240mm x 165mm. Post heavier or larger than this will require additional postage.
What's the cheapest way to send a parcel?
The cheapest way will be to pick a service that takes longer to arrive, as the premium options usually prioritise speed at an additional cost. If you plan ahead and don't need your parcel to arrive urgently, you can save a lot of money by sending your parcel early.
What happens if you don't pay enough postage?
In most cases, the recipient will be given a fee card and asked to pay the additional surcharges which can be paid online or at a local office. If this isn't provided, it will likely return to the original sender.
Do you provide pallet deliveries?
Yes, this is a popular option for heavy parcels that are too large for sending traditionally. Additional shipping rates will apply, however, discounted and cost-effective prices will be provided. Simply fill in this pallet form and we will help you.
