Isle of Man postal prices to rise from next month

The cost of sending letters within the Isle of Man is set to rise later this month, the Manx post office said.

A spokesman said from 31 March the price will increase from 40p to 42p - bringing it to the same level as postage destined for the UK.

International post is also set to rise with prices starting at 75p for Europe and £1.21 for further afield.

Chairman of Isle of Man Post Geoff Corkish said the changes are partly due to a "decline of mail volumes".

He added: "Other contributory factors include a number of increases to postage and ancillary services as a result of changing commercial agreements with Royal Mail and the need to simplify our tariffs for customers."

Package prices will also change - with European prices rising from £2.69 to £2.74 and from £3.45 to £3.52 for the rest of the world.

A full list of all the postal charge changes for 2014 are available online.
