Price of Stamps Increases in France: March 2009

Starting March 2, 2009, the price to send a Prioritaire letter (up to 20 g) within France & the DOM-TOMs will be 56 centimes, a 1 centime increase from last year. The cheaper Ecopli price will be 51 centimes, also a 1 centime increase.

The price to send a letter within the European Union & Switzerland will be 70 centimes, a 5 centime increase from last year. [Apparently this also includes Liechtenstein, San Marino and the Vatican, which are not in the EU... But definitely not Norway, Iceland, or Andorra, which are also not in the EU.]

For the rest of the world, however, the price remains at 85 centimes.

La Poste’s website has pdf files you can download for all the new prices, for mail originating from France Métropolitaine and the DOM-TOMs.

    Slightly off-topic, but did you know about the livre/brochure tariff? Not sure if you ever mail books, but this is definitely the way to go. I mailed a book this morning to the UK from Corse and it was .85 centimes! Amazing. Unfortunately the tariff does not work within France.

    I guess it´s still cheap enough. I wish the SNCF price would only go up by 1 centime every year…!

    Thanks for the links. Your article is useful for me, because I go in France soon.
    Good continuation

Why is Jennie no longer in France?

I created this blog in September 2006 when I moved to France from Michigan to teach English. Many of the earlier posts are about my personal life in France, dealing with culture shock, traveling in Europe and becoming fluent in French. In July 2011, I relocated to Australia to start my PhD in Applied Linguistics. Although I am no longer living in France, my research is on foreign language pedagogy and I teach French at a university so these themes appear most often on the blog. I also continue to post about traveling and being an American abroad.
