Except from DHL (which is very expensive), what are the services available in Mauritius for sending parcels outside the country?

I'm searching for really cheap services, I have no problem even if the parcel takes 30 days to reach its buyer.

I've never enquired about the fees but here are the most reliable shipping services:

  1. UPS
  2. TNT
  3. DHL
  4. Mauritius Post

The best thing to do is give them a call to find out their rates.

I'm assuming your parcel is relatively small, otherwise it would be better to look into sea freight companies as that's going to be cheaper.

Let me know how you get on with this :)
