Do I need to deal with French customs?


Yes - from 1st January 2021, you need to provide a customs invoice with any parcel sent to an EU country. This may sound tricky, but it's actually very simple to do - just complete the 'Customs declaration' section of our booking form and we'll use the information you provide to generate a customs invoice on your behalf (this will print with your label once you've paid for your booking).

Please note: taxes and duties may be due on the parcel. These will need to be paid by your recipient before the parcel can be delivered to them.

HM Revenue & Customs has more information on tax and customs considerations for France.

What items can't I send to France?


As with all deliveries outside the UK, please ensure that your parcel contents are allowed into the destination country. France has a few items that are restricted for import which include things such as rubber erasers, pyjamas or nightdresses made from artificial fibres, silicone for plastic surgery, toys and games which contain copper sulphate, Viagra and vitamins.

You can visit the French Customs website and the French post office website, although they are both in French, a web browser such as Chrome should be able to translate this for you.

Some examples of items you can’t post include:



Illegal and dangerous




Counterfeit items

Meat and fish


Protected animals and plants

*Please be aware that we also have our own prohibited items list, in addition to country-specific restrictions.

How to package parcels to France


Although France isn’t very far from the UK, we still advise you take good care with packaging; your parcel will travel through a number of depots with automated sorting machines so be sure to pack your items well and use cushioning material inside your parcel to help protect the contents from damage.

We’ll transport parcels up to 25kg in weight, 80x80x80cm max in size. We always recommend you use a strong and sturdy outer box when sending your package and don’t overfill it, regardless of the dimensions of your parcel. For further advice, take a look at our handy international packaging guide for tips.
