From January 1st 2016, for purchases of ten or more postage stamps, a stamp for a normalised mail item within Belgium will cost €0.74 instead of €0.72. The price of a single stamp increases to €0.79.
The price for standardised international mail rises from €1.10 to €1.13 (within Europe) and from €1.32 to €1.35 (rest of the world), provided five or more stamps are purchased. The prices for individual stamps for international mail rise from €1.20 to €1.23 and from €1.42 to €1.45. The new prices apply to all mail sent at the standard rate. On January 1th bpost will also adjust its prices for the sending of large mail volumes covered by an agreement.
On the whole, the average price rise for all domestic mail products for 2016 will be approximately 1.5%. The price rise is an adjustment connected with major investments to further modernise the mail and parcel organisation and hence continually improve service quality.
As shown in the comparison below, the new prices put bpost in the middle bracket of European postal operators (in the chart the potential foreign operators' rate increases for 2016 are not yet included).
