Is international surface mail still an option within the EU?

Lately I've only seen airmail being offered and if so, is the price difference worth the wait?

I'm based in Australia, so it can take up to 3 months for parcels to get here, via surface.

Same over here. But sending surface takes almost the same as sending airmail, mail just doesn't jump on a banana boat anymore, surface mail usually goes in the first available slot on cargo planes.

Same here in France.
Everything is sent "priority" abroad, be it goods or documents.

still available in Germany and takes just as long as airmail (at sometimes half the price..). But you're right it's not being offered by most countries anymore.

Huh, that's new to me. Do you think of the priority option when shipping records as DHL Päckchen or Paket respectively? I mostly ship records with Deutsche Post as letter these days, simply because, out of my experience, it's the way faster and more secure option, and Deutsche Post dropped surface mail long ago as well.

I always ship two or three LPs as Buch International surface mail. You can also get registration for this. Most people don't know about it but it still exists. Shipped tons of LPs this way, everything arrived safely etc.

Ah, I see now. I've just looked this option up and the prices for priority shipped book post are exactly the same as for letter mail. Huh, and you say there's no significant difference between economy and priority when it comes to the delivery time, don't you? I might give it a try next time as it surely mounts up saving a few Euro here and there, especially for mail over 500 g. Thanks for the heads-up!
