ParcelHero launches Christmas page to prevent stress when mailing gifts overseas

The global courier, ParcelHero says the average value for a gift parcel delivered overseas last Christmas was £109. According to David Jinks, head of PR at ParcelHero: ‘Last year 12 % of gifts didn’t arrive in time for Christmas when they were sent beyond the EU, to places such as the USA and Australia, just because people don’t know enough about completing Customs information. They were sat in a Customs warehouse instead of under the tree.” ParcelHero has subsequently launched its new Christmas page with last mailing dates and gift duty exemption limits for non EU countries – to take all the stress out of sending presents overseas.
