  • Tips On Receiving Mail Abroad

    Filed Under: Blogging

In this Internet age, it seems almost impossible that we should need to pick up “snail mail” when we are traveling abroad. But lost documents, credit cards and bank cards all need to be sent by mail. Make sure you have fully comprehensive international insurance before you travel. International travel insurance will help you cover the cost of a lost passport, or enable you to claim back money stolen in a robbery.

If you are travelling for a long period of time you may also want to receive your usual mail abroad. And those that miss the comforts of home can receive a package of familiar things when they’re traveling abroad. Where can you receive mail abroad when you don’t have a permanent address?

Some credit card companies and banks can send your mail to an overseas branch – check you can pick up your card or your statement at a branch close to where you are staying. Otherwise, post offices overseas can hold mail for you.

Don’t try sending important documents to a U.S. Embassy – U.S. Embassies and Consulates don’t take care of travelers’ private mail. But you could check to see if your destination country’s embassy can handle it.
