    Shipping to Crete?

    I need a small favour by anyone reading this post & it'll only take less than a minute of your time.

    For some bizarre reason, I can not get a Shipping quote to Crete from the UK?
    I've tried Parcel2go & Royal Mail but both companies fail in different ways. Don't forget to select Overseas on the RM site.
    Royal Mail simply doesn't see Crete as a shipping option & Parcel to go shows this after entering the relevant data of 17Kg, 50cm, 53cm, 53cm & after selecting Crete as the destination.

    Can anyone else clarify that Crete is wiped off the Map for the UK to ship to?

    I just had a quick check on the Royal Mail website and Crete doesn't show up here either, but it allows Greece as an option and says you can send it to Greece via ParcelForce for a small fortune.

    Perhaps you have to specify Greece rather than Crete? I can't say for sure as I haven't sent anything there. Probably wouldn't hurt to ask at a Post Office if you get the chance.

    I can check tonight at work for you and see if there is a specific location. However Crete and Greece will be the same price, because all of Europe is within the same Rm shipping zone and will all be the same price, so if you get a price to Greece it will be the same.

    Thanks Stephen.

    @ H

    I doubt a Greece quote would cover it to Crete, & why have a Crete option on one site & not the other??

    I've not been able to get into a post office to ask myself yet.

    Couriers work differently to Royal Mail RM mainly works on 3 world price zones (although not for certain revenue steams), whereas couriers make the rules up as they go along and charge different rates per country and volumetric weight.
