The State of Israel was created following its independence from Mandatory Palestine in 1948 and shares borders with Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon and Syria. Its capital, Tel Aviv, is interestingly half the size of the most populous city in the nation - Jerusalem.
Israel can certainly be considered to be one, if not the, most advanced economy of south-west Asia which may be due to the fact that the country is very easy to do business with - the World Bank asserts that it is the 3rd most easy country do business with.
DPD is our cheapest courier for parcels being sent from the UK to Israel. You can choose to book Classic shipping which is delivered in 4-7 working days or if the parcel is more urgent you can book Express for a 3-5 day delivery. Not only this you can choose to have the parcel picked up by the courier or to drop off at any local DPD Pickup shop, which often makes the price even cheaper.
When you want to post a parcel to Israel we offer tracked mail courier services using TrakPak. Your parcel will still be collected by the courier and then TrakPak mail it to Israel and the local Post Office complete the delivery.
If you are used to posting parcels at the Post Office, you can get a better price by booking Parcelforce online with Parcel Monkey too. You can book a courier collection or drop off for a cheaper rate.
Express shipping services are available to book for those who need a fast delivery to Israel. You can choose to book DHL who deliver in as little as 1-3 days or an alternative, you can book Parcel Monkey Air Express which is collected by Parcelforce and then delivered in Tel Aviv or elsewhere by DHL. When your parcel is heavier, this service can often work out to be half the price of DHL and takes only a day or two longer.
Understandably Israel has a lengthy list of prohibited items that you are restricted to send into the country via international parcel delivery services. This list can be found here and include the usual items such as offensive materials, forged currency and documents. The list, at the time of writing, also includes pen like guns and shooting devices; but also items such as used equipment for beekeepers and used sacks that were used for packing plant material.

Everything was fine, however it was impossible to track the package via the website. I had to contact customer service to track it. it was sent internationally.
Great, my parcel has arrived very swiftly over seas. And much better service then UK Mail who are on strike!
Parcel sent overseas and took much longer than the 3-5 days purchased. You are only as good as the partners you work with, who regrettably did not update and respond to the person receiving the parcel
AOK delivered in good time
Used this service for parcel to Israel. The site is easy to use ( except for hideous customs form, not parcel monkeys fault, but colours ones view of the process) although more expensive than I had hoped. The parcel was supposed to take 3 to 5 days but actually took 10 days. 8 days after posting the link to tracking information led to the statement "no tracking events are available right now". Not helpful. Surely it was in the country by then and a short note saying it was on its way would have been reassuring.
