Re: Sending a letter.

You can track anything you send from the UK to Turkey, it costs under 5 pounds, everything my mum has sent me has arrived when tracked, but the length of time it takes to get here varies from 1-3wks. It has to be signed for when delivered here. My friend sent me my birth cert using DHL, pricey but took 3 days & very safe. These are the only safe methods I am aware of.

Good luck.

Re: Sending a letter.

i find the most econical way is using the PTT signed for insurance mail from turkey to uk, safe, trackable and only costs a few lira.

the cargo companies are very expensive.

Re: Sending a letter.

I think the only safe secure way is via DHL. They have a link up to ARAS Cargo in Turkey, so can be tracked all the way.

Re: Sending a letter.

Thanks but not an option because of where it's going and the time of year.
