What is a Parcel?

A parcel is a package bearing the name and address of the recipient and it is delivered via a parcel delivery company through their delivery and courier network.

In the UK a parcel is only really different to a letter in that a letter can be posted through a letter box and a parcel can’t. However, the size of a “Large Letter” is quite large, so could be big enough to be a small, rectangular parcel – see our Letter Guide for more information on Letters. 

Where can I send a Parcel?

You can send a parcel pretty much anywhere! At ParcelGuide we’ve divided destinations into the UK, Europe and Non-Europe/Worldwide as these are the general categories and price points for parcel carriers. The speed, protection and tracking you can choose for your parcel depends on your budget and value of the package you are sending.
