Breaking News - the 10g airmail (International Standard) rate may not be disappearing on Sunday!
As I write there is uncertainty over what is happening to Airmail rates on Monday. According to the first downloaded rate chart, and the leaflet in Post Office branches, there will be no 10g rate from Monday 31 March.
But I have been told about a new download chart which shows that the 10g rate of 97p applying to both Europe and the rest of the world - which will please Postcrossers. There may also be implications for Post and Go machines.
For an up-to-date statement on what is happening on Post and Go machines from Monday 31st please see the Tariff-change blogpost.
I'm seeking clarification from Royal Mail !
UPDATE 1.45 26 March 2014
Royal Mail have confirmed that the rate for postcards and 10g letters worldwide will be 97p replacing the 88p current rate.
This will NOT apply to premium services, Tracked/Signed/Tracks+Signed: the minimum rates for these services will be postage +£5 outside the EU, ie £5.97 Europe and £6.28 World. EU 20g rate is £7.16 (including VAT at 20%)
