The prices to send a parcel to the Bahamas vary depending on the weight of the parcel, as well as the speed you want the parcel delivered in. Generally when shipping from the UK to the Caribbean the costs are very much the same due to the distance.
For the international parcel delivery of a box weighing around 1kg, the cheapest service would cost just £32.42 at the time of writing. This is via Parcel Monkey Air Express, a premium delivery service collected from your home or work in the UK, processed via a Freight Forwarder and then delivered in country by DHL.
For a more substantial parcel weighing 10kg the price would be approximately £66. For a much heavier parcel at 20kg you could expect to pay just over £100 for a three to four day service.
We also offer DHL Worldwide who are the quickest delivery service to the Bahamas with a transit time of 2-3 days and Asendia who offer a slower more economic product.

The Bahamas are certainly one of the most financially rich nations in the Caribbean region, certainly more so than Cuba and Haiti to the south. Here the economy is heavily dependent on tourism for its income with approximately sixty per cent of the economy being dependent on visitors. Also of great importance is that of financial services which accounts for around fifteen per cent of its income due to their Governments light regulation of the financial services industries and attractive tax rates on corporations.
The Bahamas is another island that is iconic for its booming tourism trade. The Bahamas enjoys hot weather all year round with a variety of different cruise ships visiting the island weekly. However, the island is vulnerable to hurricanes which can be extremely dangerous in the summer and autumn. The national language in the Bahamas is English as the island did used to be in the British Colony. The island is located near Cuba and the USA, and provides many different Americans with a short break away with little distance to travel. The country deals in the Bahamian dollar with $1 converting into £0.62.
The economy in the Bahamas relies on tourism a lot. 60% of the country's GDP is in the tourism industry and more than half of the countries jobs are produced through tourism. The country also exports polystyrene which is also a big source of income for the island.

It would have been better if the Consignee had first phoned the number you had to check if/when anyone would present at the delivery address to receive the parcel since it was a private address.
You were perfect!
Id be lost without parcelmonkey, huge savings for some very good courier services. I use parcelforce most always, even when lower priced options available as theyve been more than fantastic. My latest parcel was to America, nearly 8kg for £51 and got there in 3 days...amazing price through parcelmonkey and amazing service through parcelforce! My only regret was only discovering parcelmonkey a couple years ago and not sooner!
Quick and professional services.
I have used parcel monkey on a number of occasions. They have delivered each time (no pun intended). The service is easy to use and reliable.
