What is a virtual postal address?

Our virtual postal addresses are locations that you can use for all manner of UK based address needs. They’re not physical locations that you can visit, but they are based on the physical locations we operate from. Your virtual postal address will be entirely unique to you, and it allows you to have an address presence in the UK without having to live here. Learn more by watching our video below.
