From November, the Czech Post will increase the price of sending letters, parcels and postal orders. Delivery of an ordinary letter will become more expensive by two crowns to 21 crowns, priority writing delivered by the next day will cost 28 CZK instead of 26 CZK. The reason is rising costs, said post office spokesman Matyáš Vitík. The server Peníze.cz drew attention to the price increase. The post office last increased the price of a stamp for an ordinary letter in 2018, by three crowns.
“Due to the rising costs, especially of energy and fuel, we adjusted the price list of our services from November 1. Among other things, ordinary writing will become more expensive by two crowns from the current 19 crowns, and from 26 to 28 in the case of priority,” said Vitík.
The basic price of the Balíkovna Česká pošta service will increase by ten crowns to CZK 75, with cash on delivery to CZK 94. For registered users, the price does not change, it remains at 65 CZK without cash on delivery and 84 CZK with cash on delivery.
The price of sending postal and cash on delivery vouchers will increase by five crowns in all cases. The basic price for sending an amount up to CZK 5,000 will therefore increase from November to CZK 49 for a type A voucher, to CZK 42 for a type B voucher and to CZK 58 for a type C voucher.
The post office already raised the price of postal orders by five crowns last April, when it also increased the price of recommended and valuable writing.
Since this October, the post office has charged a fee for the SIPO service also for non-cash payments in the form of direct debit from a bank account. If the customer only required confirmation by email, the service was free until now. The company now collects five crowns for it.
Last year, according to CTU data, the post office delivered 147.7 million ordinary parcels up to two kilograms, which is a tenth less than the previous year. For ordinary packages up to ten kilograms, the post office recorded a drop by a quarter to 195,000 shipments.
Last year, Czech Post cut its loss by half to 681 million crowns. In the previous year, it reported a drop of 1.37 billion crowns. Operating revenues increased by 400 million to 19.55 billion crowns. The state-owned enterprise operates 3,200 branches and employs 27,000 people.
