Why are we doing this?

We hope that you will be able to take advantage of the Promotional Price to make your budget go further – booking additional volume in an area you may not have tested before, for instance – and to book future contracts further in advance. Remember, you can book Door to Door up to 13 months in advance at this Promotional price.

You can also use combine the Promotional Price with our Late Booking offer to reduce the overall price of your distribution.

International Surcharge

Royal Mail introduced an International surcharge in order to help us respond to the impact of the volatile currency market on key cost areas for our business; fuel, conveyancing and International delivery charges. A flexible International surcharge enables us to keep prices as low as possible while enabling us to react to future currency and fuel related cost changes.

The surcharge increased on 15th November 2019, will remain at 6.5%. However given the current volatility of currency the surcharge is continuously under review and may decrease or increase subject to 14 days notice. To keep up to date on the level of International Surcharge please visit www.royalmail.com/surcharges
