Stamp price to go over €1 for first time
The price of a stamp in France will go over the €1 threshold for the first time ever, La Poste has confirmed.
From January 1 2019, the price of a “red priority” stamp will jump from €0.95 to €1.05.
Green stamps are also going up - from €0.80 to €0.88.
The 10% rise for these two stamps is twice the 4.7% average increase. La Poste defended the move saying that it will “improve quality”.
The rise in cost for individual, domestic parcels will be less severe: at 1.4%.
