Post between France/Spain and England - time

    • Thread Starter

    How long does it take usually for post to arrive in England from France and Spain? Will it maybe take longer than usually in Dec because of Christmas?

    It's been really bad lately, even quite a few months before Christmas. Dunno about Spain but I've been in Europe since the beginning of the summer and it's taken 3/4 weeks to get something from the UK each time. Now, I expect it'll be even worse.

    Post is generally really **** from Europe. It's even faster from the USA.

    I'm in France at the moment and post either way takes about 4/5 days! I was really surprised! I ordered something by normal delivery on Amazon UK last Saturday and it got here Thursday

    EDIT: Haha just checked my inbox and it was dispatched on the 7th and got here on the 10th! Not bad

    I got a package from Australia today that was send last Friday, amazingly. Shouldn't take much longer than a week.
