Sending parcels from Greece just got cheaper

The Greek postal service, ELTA, on Tuesday announced substantial reductions to the cost of sending parcels.

It said that customers would now pay 1.50 euro to send a package weighing up to a kilo, and then 0.50 euro for each kilo above that.

Until now, the price started at 3.50 euros for up to a kilo, rising from there.
