As you may have seen, from 1 September 2020, Royal Mail will increase the Europe and Worldwide postage (World Zones 1 and 2). Prices for the USA remain unchanged.
Royal Mail are making this change due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, which has led to extreme shortages in air capacity and subsequently to an increase in air carrier costs to most countries overseas. Royal Mail is unable to continue to absorb these costs in existing pricing, and in order to manage the impact of these increased costs must adjust prices accordingly.
From 10 August, you will start to receive new copies of Our Prices leaflets. We’ll update you with more details on Royal Mail price changes in branchfocus from next week.
You can see more information on the Royal Mail website.
