International shipping times
When you ship a package overseas, it’s important to consider how quickly you would like it to arrive. International shipping times vary depending on how far your package needs to travel, so if it's a long haul destination, make sure you allow sufficient shipping time. If you’re shipping internationally to a neighbouring country, for example, the USA to Canada, delivery could be as quick as next working day.
Major destinations such as Europe are well networked with vast transport links so you can expect quick transit times compared to shipping to more remote areas of the world. Using our shipping calculator, you’ll be able to compare transit times and choose from a range of expedited delivery and economy international shipping services.
Here are some examples of the international shipping services you can book through Parcel Monkey:
