Cost of delivery services to Slovakia

Cheapest courier services from UK to Slovakia

We are very focused on service at ParcelHero; we choose to work only with carriers that can deliver the highest standards. This means packages sent with us travel via efficient, secure delivery networks with some of the most reliable international global carriers. As a business we have built up significant buying power, which means that our premium quality services can be provided at a much-reduced cost – far less than buying directly from the carriers themselves. ParcelHero offers you £50.00 free enhanced cover with every shipment heading to Slovakia. We also have a membership scheme that has some attractive benefits if you are sending parcels on a regular basis.

Transit times to Slovakia take 1-6 days, depending on the type of service you have chosen and the area in which your delivery address is located. There are some parts of the country (such as the Slovakian countryside) that are more difficult to get to and these remote areas will attract a small surcharge and an increased transit time. We will always include these factors in your ParcelHero quote so there will be no sudden price increase half way through the booking process.

How to pass customs in Slovakia

As Slovakia is an EU member state, free movement of goods is enabled between EU countries. As such, any item sent from the UK can sail through customs as long as it can not be found on any prohibited / restricted import / shipping lists from either country or shipping service.

If you are shipping from outside of the EU, there is a maximum duty-free allowance of €150. If your parcel is valued at more than that, it will incur extra charges that must be paid by the receiver before the parcel will be delivered to the destination address.

Customs laws are enforced by the Slovakian customs officials, ParcelHero have no way of influencing their decision making or speeding the process up. Every country has a list of items that they will not allow to be imported across their borders. Slovakia is no different; their prohibited items include:

  • Magnetized Materials
  • Cosmetics
  • Paints
  • Cheques

For more information on Slovakian customs, please visit the official Slovakian customs authority website. To see what items ParcelHero prohibit from shipping visit our dedicated page.
