Hi all,

Does anyone know, from experience, how long it will take for an "ordinary" parcel to reach the UK from Cape Town?

Alternately, does anyone know another way of sending a parcel that won't break the bank?

Thank you! :)

Postnet has a service whereby the parcel leaves SA via courier and it is then deposited in the local postal service in the destination country. Much more reliable as it doesn't come in contact with SA post office and less expensive than a traditional courier service.

IIRC it's called Global Mail.

Considering all the post office strikes, I won't bargain on anything less than a year.

@bwana, thank you SO much, I made use of Global Mail.

Thank you for taking the time to respond, I really appreciate the advice.
