Stamped Self Addressed envelope for a different country?

by samstephens 8 replies
I'm in Austaralia, and I need to deliver a package to the UK, and with it I need to include a stamped, self addressed envelope to send it back to me.

Does anyone know how this works?

Can I put Aussie stamps on the one going from the UK to Aus? Or do I somehow have to get myself some UK stamps?

I know this sounds off-topic, but it IS a business related question

Thanks!

cheers
Sam

    Hi Sam,

    I don't think Aussie stamps would be accepted on outgoing mail here...

    Here's a link to the royal mail's site - they (used to) run a service where you pre-pay postage and print a label/or directly onto your envelope.

    Kindest regards,
    Karl.

        No worries Sam,

        I don't know if international customers can set up an account, as I've not tried the sign up process - but I don't see why not.

        Kindest regards,
        Karl.

          That's a good point, I hadn't tried to actually buy yet. Like you said, they should be fine with it.

          If not I'll just go annoy the dear ladies at my local post office and see if they have a way of doing it.

          Surely it's a reasonably common thing to do?

          cheers

          • From memory, there's a service called an International Reply Coupon - you include that in the package and your customer exchanges that for return postage at their end.

                And Royal Mail say:

                Sending an International Reply Coupon with your mailing means the recipient can reply to you for free or by paying only part of the postage cost. You can buy the coupons from most large Post Office branches for just 60p. Then whoever you send the coupon to can exchange it for international postage at a post office in their own country. They can be used to buy postage for anywhere in the world, not just to reply to the country they have been sent from.

                If you receive a coupon from abroad, just take it to the Post Office and exchange it for 50p worth of stamps. International Reply Coupons make it so much easier for you to keep in touch with friends and family in foreign lands.

                Please note: The current version of the International Reply Coupon has an expiry date of 31st December 2006. After this date, International Reply Coupons with this expiry date can no longer be exchanged for postage.

                A new version of the International Reply Coupon with an expiry date of 31st December 2009 will be available from Post Office branches from the 31st July 2006 and will cost 95p.

                  That's right... International Reply Coupons. I think that's what I used once. If I remember rightly, you buy them in accordance with the weight/size of the return envelope which helps eliminate the other end having to pay extra (unless there are different postal rates involved).
