After a whopping 14% price rise in first class mail I discover stamps to europe are gone.. A letter to france is now the same as a letter to Australia!  Aaargh!

At least to Australia, you can do it cheaper via surface mail / international economy, and make sending a letter / postcard to Australia cheaper than to Europe!

That is true and buying postage online is a little cheaper £3 for a parcel instead of £3.20

International standard letter is £1.70 worldwide economy is £1.24. Buying mint and valid stamps on ebay is cheaper especially if you buy E or WW versions that can be used even after postal increases.

Any letter bound out of the US and its territories is $1.20; that can be to Canada or Mexico, or Singapore, New Zealand, wherever.  Don't ask me for the British pound equivalent, because I have not been keeping up with exchange rates lately.  I have compared the postage on some of my British and European writers' letters to me in the past, and it appears that it is more expensive for them to write to me than the other way round.

 

FWIW
