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.

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.

Restrictions

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

A shipment to Czech Republic 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:

In the modern age in which we live, it's natural to think that all business can be dealt with online and that the virtual world will deal with all your corporate requirements. In reality, though, this is frequently not the truth, and if you have business interests in Prague then there may well come a time when you have to arrange a Prague package delivery. It could be that your overseas office needs hard copies of invoices to input manually, or there are blueprints that an important client is demanding to see in a tangible format, or perhaps it's something as basic as a product sample that requires shipping to Prague - something an email description and photographs simply won't do justice to.

Prague is the capital city of the Czech Republic, as well as being the largest city in the country. Throughout its 1,100 year history it has been a vital centre for the whole of central and Eastern Europe, having been the capital of the Holy Roman Empire. Partly because it has been included on UNESCO's list of World Heritage Sites and classified as a global city, Prague has become a magnet for tourists from all over the world, attracting more than four million visitors per year. Economically, Prague is vital to the rest of the Czech Republic, accounting for a quarter of its GDP and half the national income from tourism. This income is driven in no small part by the presence of over 73,000 beds in various accommodation facilities.

Whether your business is related to the tourist industry or lies in a different field entirely, there's every chance there will be a time when a Prague package delivery becomes vitally important and, at that time, you'll need to be sure that the courier you use is totally reliable. At RapidParcel.com, we only work with couriers we know we can trust absolutely. We've worked with the same couriers for more than two decades and time after time they've shown the kind of professionalism and skill that mean that your Prague package delivery will be in the safest possible hands.

When your overseas office urgently requires a parcel delivery to Prague, it will come as a huge relief to know that we provide twenty-four-hour, next-day delivery across Europe; not merely for Prague shipping but also for a delivery anywhere else in the Czech Republic. Having arranged the logistics of shipping to Prague itself, the nuts and bolts of ensuring your package delivery arrives safely and quickly, we also take just as much care over the customer service side of our business. Our website is laid out with ease of use at the centre of our thinking; having negotiated the best deals for your parcel delivery to Prague, we make sure that reviewing and comparing these deals is simplicity itself. Once you've chosen the deal that meets your needs, features such as bulk upload and 'auto-fill' take the time and drudgery out of making a booking and, sooner than you think, your vital package delivery to Prague will be safely making its way to its final destination.
