Frequent travellers have the opportunity to see different parts of the world regularly. This could be due to work, personal reasons or a combination of the two. It often entails staying in temporary accommodation for a short amount of time until the next destination, which means many frequent travellers won't have a secure permanent address to receive all of their mail. This can create problems such as important mail being lost or not brought to your attention quickly enough, leading to uncertainty and stress while travelling. However, utilising a service such as ours, frequent travellers can manage and action their mail online from wherever they may be.
How does UK Postbox help frequent travellers?
For frequent travellers, the value of our services comes from the ability to manage mail on the move, no matter where they are in the world. Retain your presence in the UK by using our service to receive all your correspondence, such as pensions, billing, subscriptions, personal mail, and utilise our mail management platform to stay on top of everything.
Online mail management
Being able to manage your mail online means that you'll unlikely be in a situation where you can't read or respond to your mail. It also removes the need to rely on friends or family to manage mail for you while away, reducing the chance that post will get lost, not actioned correctly or disposed of. Decide what happens with your post on a case by case basis while on the move. Need something stored until you're in a location that is suitable to receive it? We offer free storage for up to 30-days with competitive rates thereafter.
Permanent UK address
Through our address service, you can retain a UK presence regardless of where you are in the world. This can be a great way to manage all of your UK correspondence without the need for a physical location. For example, if you're still using a UK bank account, you can use your UK Postbox address for all of your banking mail or when applying for a card.
International mail and parcel forwarding
Having the ability to forward mail either on to yourself internationally or somewhere else in the UK can help you stay on top of your mail. Receive your mail to your UK Postbox address, then tell us if you need it sent somewhere else for further action. Is there specific mail you need to be sent on to you while travelling? No problem, tell us via our online platform, and we'll do the rest.
Shop and ship
Shop for your favourite UK products and we can help get them to you overseas. Not all UK retailers will offer international shipping, or if they do, it can be extremely expensive. If you're placing multiple deliveries, we can consolidate your parcels into a single package before forwarding it to wherever you are in the world. This can help to save on shipping costs and reduce the environmental impact of sending mail.
If you’re not sure how long you’ll be travelling for and how often you’ll need to use our service, we have a range of flexible options to suit your needs and schedule. If you take a break from travelling and return to the UK without using our account, we’ll keep it active for you in case you need it in the future.
Will you be renting out your home?
If you're renting out your property during your travels, then you'll have to consider what happens to your mail. You'll likely receive mail intended for you to this address, even if you've updated your contacts and providers, you never know what could arrive for you. You can set up a redirection service to have your mail sent to your UK Postbox address, and when something arrives, you'll be able to read and manage it online while travelling.
