Guernsey Post increases price for sending letters

The cost of sending a letter in Guernsey has gone up.

The price to send a letter in Guernsey has risen by 1p to 40p, and by 2p to 55p to post a letter to the UK.

Boley Smillie, chief executive at Guernsey Post, said he was confident the prices compared favourably with benchmarks across the industry.

In Jersey, local letters cost 45p and letters sent to the UK are 55p. In the UK a first class letter costs 60p and a second class 50p.

Mr Smillie said: "We have worked hard in negotiations with our suppliers and in managing our own costs to keep any increases to an absolute minimum."
