who lives in Australia. You are sure that this box would bring a smile

have no idea of the cost of shipping to Australia.

You have visited the websites of private shipping companies—only to
be disappointed with the steep prices they have quoted your package with.
Before you give up and just wait for the niece or the friend to visit
you for their gifts, you might want to try with your local post office

Shipping Australia on a budget

Thanks to well-advertised shipping services from private companies, your
local postal services have been perceived to be slow in delivery and generally
unreliable. But this is not entirely true—your country’s postal service
can deliver your shipments at around the same time the private companies
do, and at a lesser cost. But before you run to the nearest post office
to take advantage of cheap shipping to Australia, you should bear the
following things in mind:

• The size and weight of your parcel. There are options that calculate
the cost of shipping by the size and weight of the parcel. The bigger
and the heavier the package is, the more expensive the cost. However,
with many postal systems, like UK’s Royal Mail, offer flat rates for small
packets (for documents) and packages. The Royal Mail’s prices are cheaper
by almost half the price of those quoted by private shipping companies.

• How fast do you want the parcel to
reach Australia
? The faster the delivery period, the more expensive
the shipping is going to cost you. If you are sending important items
to your family or friend in Australia, you may want to avail of the faster
delivery. But if you are sending a food-free parcel, you are safe with
the slower option. The faster delivery is often significantly expensive
compared to the regular delivery, and you will save money if you are not
too excited about the parcel’s receipt in Australia.

• What are the contents of your parcel? If you do not mind the parcel
being inspected by Australian Post authorities, then you can save more
money by opting for a regular shipment. However, if there are personal
or sensitive information inside the package, you can pay for first-class
shipment options. Your parcel will be exempt from inspection and will
arrive to Australia sooner.

Because of your tight budget, you may have opted for the cheapest options—and
that is not a problem—but make sure that you have the recipient’s address
on the labels correctly. If the parcel is not delivered to the recipient,
you may have not paid the fees required to return the parcel to you for
without additional charges. You may be required to pay the same fees you
paid to have the parcel shipped to Australia.
