Royal Mail have reminded business customers about some changes to their terms and conditions and separately written to inform them of Royal Mail international price changes coming into effect from the 3rd of January.

Royal Mail International Price Rises

Changes to the Royal Mail International Price tariff which will come into effect on the 3rd of January 2023 have been pre-announced. However they have not yet published what the new rates might be and are due to do so at 9am on the 2nd of December at royalmail.com/prices2023.

In fairness, the Royal Mail International price rises have been pre-announced as ‘changes’ and it’s us that are assuming that it will be international price rises rather than decreases…. watch this space.
