Changes to the postal rates will be introduced from Tuesday 2nd May 2017.
In summary, the new headline letter rates are as follows:-
- The cost of a Bailiwick stamp will be 44p
- The price of a UK stamp will be 59p
- The price of a letter to Europe will be 73p
- The price of a letter to the Rest of the World will be 80p
In a previous statement to the Guernsey Press, Boley Smillie, our Guernsey Post Chief Executive said:
"The price of a Bailiwick stamp will increase by one penny from, from 43p to 44p and a letter to the UK will increase from 57p to 59p. We understand customers do not like price increases and we have tried to minimise the impact as much as we can.
However, some of our costs have increased significantly, such as the price we pay for the onward conveyance and delivery of international mail, and we unfortunately have to reflect these charges in our prices. Overall the changes to our tariffs across business and domestic customers will generate additional revenue of less than 1%"
"We will continue to work hard to retain the most competitive rates possible whilst ensuring the business remains sustainable and adapts to changes in mail volumes."
