Letter-post items

You can calculate the postage price here.

All items weighing less than 2kg are treated as letter-post items. Letter-post items can be posted to addressees in Lithuania or other countries from any post office.

Insurance of items
  • Insure your postal items against incidents, and you will be entitled to receive compensation for a damaged or lost item. The amount of the compensation equals to the value of the contents and postage combined.
  • The insurance service can be ordered for registered domestic and international* items.
  • The maximum insured value is EUR 1 158.48.
  • To ensure safety of his own and other items, the sender must use durable packing materials.
  • The insurance service may be purchased for part of the contents. In case part of articles contained in an insured item are lost or damaged, the compensation would be calculated summing up the postage and the insured value of the lost or damaged articles listed in the description of the articles sent. In such a case, the compensation amount will not exceed the insured value set for the entire insured item.
  • The insured value may not exceed the actual value of the contents. The sender can be prosecuted in case the stated value of the contents exceeds the actual value of the item.

*On condition that the country of destination provides the insurance service.

One of my favourite hobbies is writing and sending letters to the people I care about. Nowadays many people communicate online or by phone, but I am very pleased each time I find a letter or postcard in my mailbox.
