Want added peace of mind?
Sending important letters or documents? For a little added peace of mind, consider one of our international tracking and signature services.
Keep tabs on your parcel with tracking at five points after despatch as well as an online confirmation of delivery.
Your item is tracked until it leaves the UK and only handed over at its final destination once we have a signature from the recipient.

Is there compensation for loss or damage?
In the unlikely event your parcel is lost or damaged, compensation cover up to £20 is included. However, because we rely on postal services around the world, we can’t offer a guaranteed delivery time, and we can’t compensate for delays.
Tracking and signature items travel in a separate network while they’re in the UK, and we provide proof of posting and compensation up to £50 as standard. We also offer the option of extra compensation up to £250 to protect valuable items against loss or damage.
