About

girl

Parcelio was born from a simple need any expat, world traveler, or citizen in far flung places experiences - we all want parcels delivered to us, but don't want to pay expensive couriers! Most products we want to buy are cheaper elsewhere or simple care packages get slapped with high shipping costs.

That's why we came up with parcelio. It helps you find which friend travels where and whether they have space to carry your personal stuff. No more calling or emailing to figure out who's traveling when and where and whether there's some extra space in the suitcase! Cut out the steep shipping costs slapped on your parcel and outsmart the system and get the things you need at the price you can afford.

Because Parcelio only connects with your Facebook friends it's safe and you avoid awkward feelings that can arise from non-friends seeing your parcel request. Log in to manage your parcels and see who accepted them. Return the favor (and get paid!) when you fly by sending us your itinerary or by entering your flights into Parcelio to enable your friends to send their parcels through you.

Meet the team

Jeremy and Michael believe expats and foreigners shouldn't be deprived of getting stuff from their home-country because couriers are expensive. They have lived away from Belgium for a good part of their lives and know what it's like to want food, books or clothes from home.
