Argentina and the UK share a large volume of trade which results in a number of parcels being shipped from the UK to destinations such as Buenos Aires, Córdoba and Rosario. Over 80% of the population have a European origin so it is no surprise that many items are personal items whether that be a gift or documents.
No matter what you are looking to send to Argentina, Parcel Monkey can connect you with discounted courier prices, to help you save on the cost of postage.
Here are some examples of prices to send a parcel to Argentina. We have many options, so for a personalised quote please enter the weight of your item into the quote box below.
Customers are often looking for a cheaper price to ship a parcel than what they have been quoted elsewhere such as direct with a courier. We help customers save on the cost of shipping parcels due to the volumes we send with the couriers, meaning they offer us a lower, favourable rate as opposed to an individual sending a package to Argentina, so our quote engine will not only filter out the best services, it will give some of the best prices on the market.
Using DHL, you can send a parcel from the UK to Argentina in just 2-3 working days.
If you want a cheaper price but still an Express delivery service, then Parcel Monkey have a hybrid Air Express service collected in the UK by Parcelforce and then delivered in Argentina by DHL. Using this service, the parcel will be delivered in 3-4 days.
You can also use Parcelforce to deliver your parcels to Argentina in 4-6 days.
The best value service we offer to ship a light parcel to Argentina would be the TrakPak service delivered in 8-11 days from around £27 and this is still collected from your doorstep by a courier in the UK, before being flown out to Argentina and delivered by the local Post Office,
When sending something heavier such as 10kg parcel the Parcel Monkey Air Express service would be best at a cost of about £66. Understandably there is a concentration of deliveries to the major cities of Buenos Aires, Cordova, Rosary, Mendoza, Tucumán and La Plata.
When sending a parcel to Argentina, you will need to complete Customs Documents. You will also need to provide the Tax ID of the recipient or if you do not have this, your UK Passport number. To find out more about this read our guidance here.
The Argentinian government has become increasingly protective over its domestic economy - mainly because as the country has become wealthier it has imported more consumer goods from abroad. 2010 saw a 46% surge in imported goods and as a result, the government has placed import restrictions on 200 goods.
That list, however, doesn't include the items which are prohibited from import, these include Spare parts, motorcycles and clothing. For a complete and updated list of items we suggest you read more about the Argentina Customs Services.
Standard items that are always prohibited from being sent internationally include; batteries, liquids, nail varnish and food. Before you send a parcel, please review the full list of Parcel Monkey prohibited items.
Website easy to use. Very good alternatives. Good pricing. Efficient pick up service. Track and trace could be improved, although I understand it depends a lot in the service provider.
Sent a parcel from the UK to Argentina. Took longer than advertised but arrived in good condition, with good tracking info provided.
Apart from the guy who arrived to collect the parcel (he didn't understand English well!) the whole thing was good!
GREAT SERVICE THIS TIME ,MUCH BETTER THAN THE LAST 2 DELIVERIES KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK
The updates on the progress of the package are unclear and don't seem to come in order.
price and service is good only not very good because of lack of international tracking number to pass on to recipient
Excellent price. Thorough instructions.
Fairly easy online service. For the price… Maybe could’ve collected it from my home!
