  • No increase in standard parcel prices*
  • International standard rate increases from €1.35 to €1.50
  • Meter price increases from 90c to 95c for standard letters
  • Other business bulk rates increase by 10% on average
  • Commenting on the Price Changes, David McRedmond CEO of An Post said: “2017 saw a major improvement in An Post’s difficult financial position resulting from the price increase last April, large headcount reductions and the successful re-launch of the parcel business.

    "I am pleased that the better financial position means prices for standard letters and parcels need not be increased this year."
