    We are out in Portugal until at least the end of June. Emma is an artist and from time to time we need to have parcels sent back to UK for shows/exabitions. Nothing huge, biggest around 80x60x20cm and maximum 10kg.
    Have had a bit of search but can't come up with many options, anyone have any experience from Portugal or other Europe destinations?

    Went to send an A4 padded envelope back last week, 2.75kg and post office normal cost €35. Didn't bother as it was only a couple of art magazines to family.

    We can get single flight to UK for £30, cheaper to give the envelope its own seat on the plane lol.

    Thanks Shawn and Emma.

    Only experience I know of wasn't great. Friend was given painting, framed and glazed, as a present while visiting the UK. Couldn't take it back on Ryanair ( so she thought at time) Had it couriered to France. Arrived with glass shattered and painting scratched by the broken glass
    :(
    Sorry to be doom and gloom.

    Just a thought, there must be loads of Brits down that way, that will be coming home shortly, couldn't you try on here or elsewhere for someone to bring it back for you then drop it in the post when they get back to dover

    Also there are companies that deliver English groceries around Europe, do they come back empty, if so they must be worth a go.
