The Canary Islands

You might call the Canary Islands a holidaying capital for Britons and Spaniards alike, and you’d be right. Located just off the southern coast of Morocco, The Canary Islands — the main landmasses being Tenerife, Lanzarote, Gran Canaria and Fuerteventura — enjoy around 12 million tourists a year, over a quarter of them British, making shipping to the Canary Islands a consistently important service. But even though the Canary Islands is a Spanish colony, it's a little more complicated to get goods there than parcel delivery to Spain is. That's where we come in.

What else do you need to know...

Do I need to deal with customs when sending from the UK to the Canary Islands?

Despite being located closer to Africa than Europe, the Canary Islands are actually a territory of Spain. However, there will be mild taxes charged on items from the UK, which means that you will need the right declaration forms for your parcel when posting to the Canary Islands.

Luckily, we’re here to help. When you book a delivery with us, we’ll send you over all the documentation you need to ensure that your parcel gets through customs without a hitch.

How much does it cost to send a parcel from the UK to the Canary Islands?

Postage to the Canary Islands costs as little as £28.85 when you order through Parcel2Go. Plus, you can customise your order to ensure that its tailored to both your needs and your budget, whether you want collection and drop-off to parcel cover and signed delivery. 

How should I address my parcel for delivery to the Canary Islands?

As the Canary Islands are part of Spain, you should actually address your parcel in the same way that you would a Spanish address, only with the island name (e.g. ‘TENERIFE’) and the territory (‘THE CANARY ISLANDS’) on the last line of the address in block capitals.

You can refer to the Universal Postal Unions guide to Spanish addresses here.

What items can I send?

Although the import regulations are for the most part fairly standard in the Canary Islands, there are a few strange entries that you might not suspect are banned from import. These include:

  • Asbestos
  • Melatonin samples
  • Playing cards
  • Shark cartilage
