Customs charges when sending to the Canary Islands

As the Canary Islands belong to Spain and Spain is a member of the European Union, parcels sent from the UK will not need to obtain customs clearance.

Parcels sent from outside the EU will require customs clearance and may be subject to duties and taxes.

What are the Canary Islands customs rules?

Because the Canary Islands are a part of Spain, they have similar rules to Spain about what you are allowed to bring onto the Islands. You can find out more about these restrictions on ParcelHero’s Spain page, or see our full list of Prohibited and Restricted items. To find out more and see a Canaries specific list, visit Canary Islands’s customs website.

Can I send large and heavy packages from the Canary Islands to the UK?

Even the largest and heaviest goods are simple for ParcelHero. We work with the world’s leading freight couriers so that regardless of what you’re sending, from Las Palmas to Santa Cruz and everywhere between, you get great rates.

Can I send luggage to the Canary Islands?

As an extremely popular destination for holidaymakers, our customers often use our low cost courier services to the Canary Islands to save a fortune on excess baggage fees. With airlines raising the costs of excess baggage fees each year, sending your excess baggage via our courier services can be a lot cheaper than taking it with you on the plane and also means you can travel lightly to and from the airport. Just remember to package your luggage in a manner suitable for international courier transport, which can have more bumps and knocks than you average plane cargo hold.

Can I send food to the Canary Islands?

Food choices can sometimes be limited on the islands, but ParcelHero offers great savings on food shipping, as long as you follow a few simple rules. Just make sure that your food is not homemade or perishable, and that you are only sending store bought food that is in the original packaging.

How to address your parcel to the Canary Islands

Because the Canary Islands are a part of Spain, they use the same postal format as Spain. A parcel destined for the Canaries should include:

  • Mr John Smith [Name]
  • Carrer de Maria Cubi, 125, 3⁰ [Street name, house/building number, floor number]
  • 35000 [Postcode]
  • Los Palmas [region]
  • Spain [Country]

As they’re assigned Spanish postal codes, postal codes in the Canary Islands are made up of five digits. The first two of those digits specify the region that the parcel is headed for, and the other three explain where in that region that code specifically for.

Public Holidays in the Canary Islands

Everyone enjoys a break in the sun every now and then, even our delivery partners. If you’re shipping a time sensitive package to Lanzarote or the other Canaries, plan around the fact that our partner couriers do not deliver on weekends or public holidays.
