yes they did very well..even so i collected the Parcel myself from the Speedaid Office in Naphlion round trip of 20 kilometers from the delivery address ...
My address in TOLO is considered a remote area i was charged an extra fee for this Delivery ....My question is Naphlion also considered a remote Area.? if it is no problem if it is not what did i Pay the extra fee for.?? Regards Ron Rivett.
I was initially concerned as this was my first overseas parcel. However, I needn’t have worried as my parcel arrived on time and in perfect condition.
Even when I had to speak to a person from fedex Greece, they were extremely helpful.
I would definitely use this service again and have no problems recommending to others.
I had a few concerns about some items I had in my shipment but the staff give me advice & stopped me from worrying. The shipment arrived on time & the box was still in good condition. I will definitely use parcel hero again.
Very smooth operation and the parcel arrived 4 days before the expected date which was a pleasant surprise. The booking system worked reasonably well although it got slightly confused when trying to book a collection from someone else and not in my name to then deliver to me.
Thank you for delivering our parcel on time despite the holidays in between. Great to be able to track all the way
Good price too Will recommend and use again
This service to a greek address was a great relief to me as it was an important document which I had previously tried to send by Royal Mail and it had failed because there was a PO box number and they hadn't told me. This service did and delivered it within 4 days.
I found it easier to go through Parcel Hero to find comparable prices rather than going into individual courier sites. Due to my dissatisfaction with DPD I paid more to use UPS. Their service was superb and my parcel was delivered on time and in perfect condition.
The experience was excellent, even if one of my eight parcels was not initially delivered to Athens. It was very soon located and delivered safely. Speedy and reliable service.
Well informed with emails if wasn’t delivered because receiver was not home and confirmation of delivery. Really good price and easy to arrange. Courier who collected was friendly and helpful too.
Parcels collected on time and arrived even a day earlier. The cost of postage was very reasonable. Highhly recommend this service.

Collections from anywhere in Greece for parcel delivery to the UK
As Greece is currently an EU member state, there are no customs charges for shipping parcels over their borders from another EU nation. However, if you are shipping items from a country outside of the EU customs duty and tax limits do apply. If you are shipping to Greece from outside the EU and the declared value of your parcel’s contents is less than €150, you do not have to pay any further charges. If you declare the item as a gift, the limit is reduced to €45.
Any parcel that you send to Greece will have to pass through the Greek customs authority. This means that every parcel will be subject to examination to make sure no prohibited or restricted goods are being imported.
Greece prohibits the import of any computer software, jewellery and toys amongst other items. More information can be found on the Greek customs authority’s website.
Check ParcelHero’s list of prohibited items before you send anything.
Greece is well-situated for trade with Eastern and Western Europe as well as the Middle East. There are many positives to doing business with Greece including close cultural ties with the UK, a plethora of UK businesses already thriving in the Greek market and a booming tourism industry. A major issue with doing business in Greece is the Greek sovereign debt crisis. Currently, the country’s economy is still seen to be going through recession. Therefore, it is prudent to approach business dealings with much caution. While there are opportunities for UK businesses to expand into Greece, prospects for growth look bleak.
Greek addresses are locally written using Greek characters, but we recommend that you fill out the paperwork and any information needed in English. This is because our couriers operate using English and it will be less confusing for you when providing us with the information we need to process your parcel.
An example of a typical Greek address:
Commemorating the start of the Greek war of independence in 1821, National Day (25th March) is one of 13 national holidays observed in Greece when parcels cannot be collected or delivered. To find out if one of these days could cause delays to the delivery date you have in mind, check the dates before booking your shipment.
