DHL: not a courier service after all

I am trying to get a credit card couriered from the UK to Thailand.  DHL have refused, because “It might be intercepted.”

Well, yes.  This is why I want to use a courier service as opposed to normal mail.

DHL are not fit for purpose.

    Why DHL of them all? The first one to come to my mind would be FedEx, no?

    I used to use DHL when I was in Sakhalin because they were the only ones who could be relied upon to deliver there (they had an office in the town). UPS once sent an LOI of mine from Moscow to Kuwait via Sydney, it arriving two days late, so I avoid them. I should try FedEx.

    just as long as you don’t use UPS, Yemen airlines or ink cartridge courier…

    Got it with ups from italy to oman last year but i think they didn’t even check what it was and they just delivered it

    The conventional wisdom I know is that UPS is for packages with tangibles, like online shopping etc. FedEx is for documents, including credit cards. I had very good experience with them between Israel and the US, but it says nothing about other regions. And, at least DHL don’t promise something they can’t deliver, which is fair enough, I guess.

    And whaddya know, FedEx have emailed me and said they’ll send it. Nice one, Alisa!

    See that it gets delivered on time first…:-)

    Good point. Then again, the credit card is for my wife. Maybe a thief would spend less. :)
