Stamp prices for 2024 announced
The Hague, the Netherlands, 4 October 2023 – On 1 January 2024, the price of a stamp on letters sent within the Netherlands will be €1.09, compared with €1.01 today. The new stamp price as well as other price changes are within the scope granted to PostNL by its regulator ACM for 2024. PostNL delivers post across the Netherlands five days a week.
Postage and parcel prices in 2024
From 1 January 2024 PostNL will raise its rates for sending letters within the Netherlands and from the Netherlands to other countries. The basic rate for letters sent abroad will be €1.75, compared with €1.65 today.
Bob van Ierland, Director of Mail in the Netherlands, said: “Mail volumes continue to decline. Despite fewer mail items, we still empty around 11,000 post boxes every working day, and walk and cycle every street across the Netherlands daily. To keep mail affordable for our customers, we constantly adapt our postal business to keep costs as low as we possibly can. Falling mail volumes and rising costs are making it imperative for us to raise rates if we’re to keep mail accessible and reliable.”
Charges for sending a domestic parcel franked online will remain unchanged at €6.95. Having the same parcel stamped at a PostNL point will be charged at a higher rate of €7.95, from €7.65 today. The rates for sending parcels abroad will also increase.
