How long is a piece of string?

The cost will relate to how much the parcel weighs.

As for time to receipt, when I have sent parcels they usually arrive within 2-3 days. However, I have seen other people post on here that mail can take weeks. Don´t know the reason for this.

See here for a tariff calculator, but you will need to know the weight of your parcel. http://www.correos.es/comun/tarificador/tarifas.asp

Can't really help as far as exact time is concearned and as keithwalters mentions can depend on things such as weight and servce, but in general sending parcels to the UK is normally very fast as far as I can remember, getting parcels sent to a Spanish address is a totally different thing and can take an age, I get some books from Amazon at times and they have had to resend two times in the last 5 years as the parcels never arrived... they still haven't.

From here, about 6 days. However we do have places round here that do a 'courier service' for a euro I can have a letter couriered to Alicante Airport, flown over to the UK and it has a first class stamp put on in the UK. They will do parcels as well. Certainly saves on the queueing in the Correos
