Customs Advice

The importation of certain products into a country is restricted in order to protect the economy and safety of its citizens. The restrictions may be imposed by Customs or by any other agency which has regulatory authority.

We provide a shipping service only and Customs at the parcel's destination will determine whether any charges are payable on your package. All duties, taxes and/or quarantine fees applied are at the discretion of local customs or governmental organisations and are out of our control.

If the addressee refuses to pay duties/taxes, the parcel may be held, returned (if allowed by Customs) or destroyed, and additional costs may be incurred. As per Terms and Conditions, those charges will be billed to the sender.

Please note, no shipping costs are recoverable for parcels held or destroyed, even if shipping protection cover has been purchased.

Majority of parcels can be delivered door to door, once it has cleared customs at destination. However, some countries have a door to airport service only. In those countries, the recipients may have to present themselves to either Customs or the local courier's office to take possession of their consignment.

We advise you to verify independently, all Customs, Governmental and Quarantine regulations. These rules can and do frequently change without prior notice or recourse.

AWB (Courier Air Waybills - barcode) - Proforma or Commercial invoice - Address label.

The above documents are standard for any international shipment.

Please note, if additional documentation is required for the import of any particular item, it is the customer's responsibility to provide them at destination.


Goods travelling by 'Cargo' are subject to different restrictions to those travelling as carry-on luggage.

A shipment to Belgium is deemed unacceptable if: it is classified as hazardous material, dangerous goods, prohibited or restricted articles by IATA (International Air Transport Association), ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organisation) or other relevant organisation. Many items which appear harmless in everyday use can pose danger on air transport and are consequently forbidden for transport.

The following page displays a sampling of common prohibited and restricted goods.


Packing Advice

Your parcel must be boxed and well packaged. This will reduce the risk of damage to any item during transit or any associated automated distribution process.

Please be aware the item is not taken by hand from collection to destination and will visit many sorted facilities on its journey. For that reason, you need to protect the items to ensure they make it from A to B safely.

The following packaging guidelines are recommendations to assist you in packaging your shipment:


Shipment Protection

When you book a shipping service to Belgium, you will be able to choose an appropriate level of cover for your shipment. We offer enhanced parcel protection for up to £2000 for a small additional fee.

If you do not purchase enhanced Shipment Protection, your shipment will be only covered to a maximum value of £50 as per the limited liability set out in our Terms & Conditions and subject to your parcel passing minimum packaging requirements.

Please note that the declared value for customs purposes is not related to the declared value selected for Shipment Protection. We encourage all customers to purchase shipment protection cover for loss or damage.

That's why we feel it's only fair to assure our customers a delivery time they can rely on and, if you organise your shipping to Bruges through the RapidParcel.com courier comparison website, that's exactly what you'll get. The city of Bruges, in the north-west corner of Belgium, is a famed Mecca for tourists thanks to its unique medieval architecture, almost all of which is still intact. Perhaps the most famous landmark in Bruges, however, is the thirteenth century belfry, which contains a 48-bell carillon, one of the heaviest musical instruments in the world. Artists such as Hans Memling and Jan van Eyck lived and worked in Bruges, and this heritage is reflected in the presence of art galleries such as the Groeninge museum and, for those of a slightly less intellectual bent, the Frietmuseum, a museum that chronicles the history of Belgian fries.

When we say guaranteed delivery we mean it

It's commonplace for courier companies to offer guarantees of delivery within twenty four hours, or within a specified number of working days, but we think there are times when your Bruges shipping needs something a little more precise than this.
