    Hello All,

    What is the cheapest and most reliable way to send a small package to India? My friend had a baby recently in India and I am trying to send some baby gifts from here. Which one is better - Fedex or UPS or USPS?

    I have used USPS many times without any problems.. not too big packages though.. USPS has flat rate envelopes for Global posts also.. HTH!

    Bharthi,
    I use USPS Global priority Mail to send gifts. It reaches in a weeks time (may be a day or 2 more).


    3 -4 years back, I have sent some clothes and some other things (can't remeber), for a friend. I am sure it costed by less than $10. Please check the latest rates though.

    I use USPS Global priority, if I had to send some documents or photos.
