Documents Needed

After you have paid for a shipping service to Spain, you will be redirected to a page where you can download and print out the relevant shipping labels, i.e

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.

Restrictions

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

A shipment to Spain 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 Spain, 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.

We’ve been delivering packages all over the world for more than two decades, and in that time we’ve developed a service that is second to none. Whether it’s ease of use, convenience or aftercare, if you need to make a package delivery to Alicante, then RapidParcel.com is the place to start looking.

The historic Mediterranean port of Alicante has a population of over three hundred thousand people and is one of Spain’s fastest growing cities. Much of this growth is fuelled by tourism, as Alicante is seen as a gateway city for the beaches of the Costa Blanca. The city is also in the midst of a building boom and is home to Ciudad de la Luz, one of Europe’s largest film studios. On top of this, Alicante is the base for the headquarters of the Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market, which means that many workers from all over Europe are based there.

It’s easy to see, then, why there might be high demand for shipping to Alicante, and it’s a demand which RapidParcel.com is in a unique position to meet. Unlike many courier comparison websites, we don’t go out of our way to present you with as many couriers as possible who might handle your Alicante delivery. We believe in quality over quantity, and that’s why we put you in the position of choosing from the leading names that we work with.

Relax; we only work with the best couriers

We’ve done the hard work for you, thus making the process of arranging your Alicante package delivery so much simpler. Our easy-to-use website also removes the need to fill in long, complicated and, let’s be honest, boring forms. You merely enter the details of your Alicante delivery, follow six simple, logical steps, and wait for us to collect your parcel at your convenience. Often you’ll be in the position of needing your package to arrive as soon as possible, whether for business or personal reasons, and that’s where our rapid delivery promise comes into its own. If you make an Alicante parcel delivery, a package delivery to Palma de Mallorca, a Malaga parcel delivery or, indeed, ship to anywhere in Europe, North America or Canada, we can assure you that your goods will arrive at their destination within 48 hours (next day delivery is available to many destinations).

We don’t charge a premium rate for this service either, in fact, quite the reverse. We use our size, strength and longevity within the industry to negotiate market-leading rates for shipping to Alicante on behalf of our customers, so that striking the best possible deal is just one more task that you don’t need to worry about. With concern over late arrival quashed and the booking process rendered simplicity itself, it’s easy to see why RapidParcel.com is the best place to go to handle all your Alicante shipping needs.

The sample rates to Alicante noted in the table below will give you some idea of how affordable it can be to send your deliveries via our carrier partners, but for a precise quote we will need to know a little more about what you are sending and when you want it to get there. Completing our Rapid Quote form will give us what we need so we can offer you the best rates and services from our world-class carriers.
