Can anyone recommend a postal/courier service that accepts small parcels from Spain to UK, about 350g

Have looked online but struggling to find anything close to what it costs from UK to Spain, I used to pay in the region of £10 to send it to Spain but look s like its about €29 from Spain to UK

Thanks any help much appreciated

Kevin

Have you tried the Correos? They are reasonable on costs and delivery. That is unless the €29 stated was from them.

Yes the €29 was from Correos although I did the cost online so might pop in to our local office and check price

Thanks

That sounds very expensive, there is definitely a cheaper way to send it with Correos. I paid about €30 to send a 18kg parcel to the UK in March. Best pass by, as you mentioned.

Just got back from Correos the packet cost me €6.30 😀 Obviously selected something wrong online, although it's not a tracked service let's see how long it takes 👍🏼

 This morning from my local post office (Spain) t sent a pair of cycle shoe cleats to an address in Spain. About 50 grms. They were in an envelope, charge 95 euro cents

I was expecting a higher charge

Without advertising too mcuh here, if you look up Simply Mail there is a depot in Fuengirola and I have used them a few times now (for small parcels up to 1kg) and very good value compared with 'another' supplier - I paid just Eu5.60 other private co was Eu1 per 100gms...

No offence meant, but I'm not sure why anybody would use a company that only has a Facebook page and a free Wordpress blog, and claims "We operate as an alternative to the Spanish post office (Correos) for expats wishing to send mail home or businesses wishing to send orders or advertising to their clients in the UK..." Why would you need an alternative to the national postal service or established multinational courier companies? How, exactly, do you think companies like this actually send stuff? There's another one, which used to handle UK passport renewals as well, something to do with Spain, Off and Ex. They even pretended to use their own vehicles to carry passports from the CDS to Madrid - yeah, right, like that would be economically viable! All these cowboys do is play to the expats who are terrified of walking into a, dare I say it, Spanish establishment in case nobody speaks English. Using them will only delay delivery, and cost more. Pointless.
