Martinique Post Card Madness

Martinique's mail services will get your letter or package home, but you may arrive first


Many vacationers on Martinique enjoy sending postcards to friends and family back home, while others send back packages full of exciting souvenirs.

When planning to send items from Martinique home, it's easy. However, travelers should be aware that they may make it home before their letters do. The following chart will help visitors from around the world determine the cost and length of time it will take for their letter to make it home:

Destination Cost Time
U.S. and Canada 0.74? for 20 grams
0.58? for postcards
1 to 2 weeks for airmail
4 to 6 weeks for surfacemail
UK 0.69? for 20 grams
0.50? for postcards
2 to 3 weeks for airmail
Australia and New Zealand N/A 3 to 4 weeks for airmail

Purchase stamps from post offices and hotel newsstands. The prices for stamps and mail are in euros, and the euro does not have a fixed exchange rate, so travelers will need to check to know the current costs for stamps.

When writing letters to Martinique, be sure to address the recipient's name, street name whenever available, town name, postal code, the name Martinique, and the words "French West Indies."

It's easy, though perhaps not fast, to communicate by mail to and from the island of Martinique.
