People will pay more for sending letters and taking money at post offices from July 1.
Slovenská Pošta, the country’s main postal services operator, increased the prices for all domestic letters and postal orders, explaining that the previous fees did not reflect the real costs.
“This change in tariffs will secure finances Slovenská Pošta needs to cover increasing staff costs, the modernisation of services and the effectiveness of processes,” Eva Rovenská, the company’s spokesperson, stated in a press release.
Although the price for domestic letter correspondence will increase by 11 cents on average, the prices will remain similar to those in neighbouring countries that have also responded to the increasing costs of postal service operation, Rovenská added.
