ParcelHero & myHermes combine for cheapest UK shipping rates

No primary category set

ParcelHero has teamed up with My Hermes to offer what they claim are now the UK’s lowest price for shipping small parcels.

For a small parcel (up to 2kg) the Royal Mail charges a minimum of £2.85 to deliver: ParcelHero charges just £2.63 (incl. VAT). That’s 22p per shipment cheaper than the Post Office, and cheaper even than any budget couriers. As an added bonus, ParcelHero is continuing to offer £50 free insurance on all shipments.

ParcelHero’s David Jinks told us “We believe ParcelHero is now the cheapest way to ship any parcel over large letter size within the UK. Booking your parcel through ParcelHero brings significant savings against competitors such as the Post office and all the major couriers, whether you are shipping to the UK or overseas“.

For the cheapest UK and international mailing prices and final deadlines, see ParcelHero’s Christmas mailing page.

    Yes, the My Hermes service is indeed trackable. Nip to our website at and enter in your parcel(s) details and you will see a number of quotations from major carriers, all at cheaper prices than you can get by going direct! My Hermes will be among them and you can click on the quote for full details.
    And yes indeed, we also deliver overseas at rates usually far cheaper than the Post Office,etc, yes!
    Let me know if I can be of anymore help by email at [email protected] – or Chris will accuse me of planting free ads! 😉

  3. Hi Chris
    There are options to drop off as usual for My Hermes, or have it collected. The claim procedure, however. is through ParcelHero – if it’s our added free cover for up to £50. Do read the T&Cs online to make sure your parcel complies!
    Tracking is Hermes’ service – but if you have any questions ParcelHero has a UK based customer services that can jump in as well. Hermes gives 3 pick up and delivery attempts as standard, note. Good news for this busy Christmas period!
    I’m not over familiar with exactly how Hermes booking system works as opposed to ours – but best bet is to enter in full details of your parcel in our widget at the top of the page including weight and size – it will give you a number of discounted prices including the My Hermes service which you can then compare to My Hermes site directly if you wish. Entering details in our widget won’t commit you to buying, don’t worry!
    Hope this helps
