Sending Mail to U.S. from Europe

Jump to last reply

Hello-

We are continuing to plan our wonderful European vaca and are fine tuning all details (we hope).

I was wondering the best way to prepare to send small items back home to the children who will not be joining us on the trip? This would be small items and post cards.

1. Does anyone know about how long a small package or postcard will take to reach the U.S.?

2. Should we buy postage from U.S. before we leave or is this even possible? This would be just for the postcards.

3. Will we be required to fill out customs forms?

4. Do you have any other tips for sending mail from Europe to U.S.? i.e., what days are post offices closed? What have been your expiriences in mailing items back to the U.S.?

Thank you again-in advance!! You all are so wonderful!
