Reliable Courier Services
Here at Packlink, we cooperate only with the leading courier services. That way we can provide top-quality service to our users who want to be sure their parcels will always be delivered on time and undamaged. When sending a parcel from the UK to Greece or other EU countries, you can use such services as:
Convenient Parcel Collection and Drop
With Packlink, you can decide when and how you want to send your postage to Greece. There's no need for you to go to the post office and spend hours in queues. Instead, you can opt for the parcel collection service or drop-off delivery. The first one requires a courier to come over and pick the box from your doorstep. The latter means a sender has to get the package to the designated drop-off spot, from where a courier will pick it up and deliver your parcel.
Whether you need express shipping, you can easily choose the delivery service that suits you best. Regardless of your package's weight and length, we'll be able to provide you with the fastest and most affordable Greece parcel delivery. You can choose from three primary shipping options:
Economy shipping is the cheapest way to send a parcel, and it takes the longest to deliver it. You can be sure it will be delivered in one piece, though. Standard shipment is slightly more expensive than the economy, but it offers a shorter delivery time. However, if you're in a hurry, you should consider using express delivery. It might the most costly option, but it cuts transit times to a couple of working days.
Use our online calculator to compare how much various couriers charge for particular delivery services.
Aside from the best prices on postage services, here at Packlink, we can also provide you with insurance. Of course, all couriers we work with can be trusted and ensure each parcel arrives to its destination on time and in one piece. However, we still offer our customers extra cover insurance you can take advantage of.
We provide parcel insurance in the following cases:
- Damage to the shipment
- Partial loss of shipment
- Total shipment loss
Another great thing about Packlink is that you can conveniently track every package. Once you send a parcel to Greece, you'll receive a reference number you can use to see where your package is. That way, you won't need to stress out about the delivery service and ensure your parcel gets to Greece as planned.

What to Know Before Sending a Parcel to Greece
Whether you want to send a parcel to Greece or another country, you need to consider specific shipping requirements. You need to pack your parcel correctly and register it accordingly to customs requirements. Also, please note that you can't ship all items to Greece. Here's what to keep in mind in order to avoid problems with Greek customs:
It's always a good idea to double-check your parcel before sending it overseas. If you don't pack everything correctly, you risk damaging the items. With that in mind, we strongly recommend following these five simple packaging rules:
- External packaging — start by selecting a sturdy box suitable for your parcel weight and size. Avoid any empty spaces and make sure the box is in good condition.
- Internal package — to enhance your parcel's protection, you should also wrap it internally using foam or bubble sheets.
- Closing and sealing — before you send your parcel to Greece, check whether it's closed and sealed properly. Use resilient packing tape and put some cardboard or plastic on the edges and exterior.
- Documentation — any international parcel requires proper documentation. Attach labels where they are visible and don't cover the barcode with tape. Otherwise, the courier might not be able to scan it correctly.
- Packaging by item — packaging also depends on the goods you want to send. With that in mind, ensure you understand how to pack and label fragile or dangerous items.
There's a limit of items you can send to Greece. The Greek government prohibits some goods due to security reasons. Some carriers might also refuse shipment of several items considered dangerous. Here's a shortlist of things you can't send in a parcel to Greece:
- Meat and milk from non-EU countries
- Medications not intended for personal use
- Post alcohol over 24%
- Live animals
- Mineral fuels
