Hiya, I’m Maud. I’m an English girl who's moved to Berlin - because who wouldn’t fall in love with a country which has words like ‘Kummerspeck’ hidden around every corner... I love traveling and finding out the quirks of each country - and what better way to remember them than on a postcard?


  1. I could not find Turkish cost in Europe and / or anywhere else in the continent?

    • maud Arnold

      Hello Turan, thank you for bringing this up! According to the Turkish Post website, a postcard costs 5.50 Turkish Lira to send to Europe (or 0.96 in US Dollar) and 2.40 TRY (or 0,42 USD) to send within Turkey.
      We hope this helps!
      Maud 🙂

  2. What postmark will be on the postcards? For example, if I send a postcard while I’m in Germany, I assume it will not have a German stamp with a German postmark. From what location are the cards mailed?

    • maud Arnold

      Hiya CB, thanks for the question!
      It basically depends on where you’re sending your postcard. MyPostcard prints in four places: New York, Denver Colorado, Australia and Germany. If you’re sending within Germany or the USA, your postcard will have a real post stamp from that country. If you’re sending elsewhere, then the stamp will be printed. So for your example, the postcard would only have a German stamp if it were being send within Germany.
      Hope that helps!
      Maud 🙂

    Nice job Theresa — I am traveling across Europe and writing postcards on a daily basis; this post helps a lot!

  4. Such a good reference tool! I have an addition though. Chile’s postage rate for an international postcard is $600 CLP (or ~$0.80-0.90 USD).

    Source: Go to Chile (Santiago) regularly, send lots of postcards.

    • maud Arnold

      Hey Daniel,
      Thanks a lot for the addition, that’s super helpful! We’re always updating our world postage prices, so we’ll make sure to include Chile as soon as possible.
      And thanks again for the feedback – we’re really glad it’s been useful to you!
      Maud 🙂

  5. Don’t know if it is the same for other countries, but 0.18$ in Russia is far from truth. It is 0.69-0.77, indeed.

    • maud Arnold

      Hi Polina, thanks so much for spotting this mistake! I’ve double checked our source ( and you are completely right! A postcard costs 45 Rubels or 0.63 euros or 0.69 US dollars. We seem to have gone wrong during the currency conversion and will update this entry ASAP. Thanks again for your feedback and have a great day! Maud 🙂

  6. Xavier Jochmans

    In Malaysia a postcard anywhere in world is 50 sen, that is 12 cents only not 46.

    • maud Arnold

      Hey Xavier,
      Thanks very much for the addition! 🙂 We can’t find a rate for postcards on the Pos Malaysia website, so what you see in the Malaysia field refers to the rate for a 100g letter internationally and domestically.
      Thanks for sharing your experience of sending a postcard – that’s super helpful for expanding our worldwide postage rates!
      Best wishes,

  7. Hello,
    I believe you put wrong stamp rates for Indonesia for sending postcard.

    To Asia = €0.38 (Rp 6.000)
    To Europe = €0.45(Rp 7.000)
    To USA = €0.51 (Rp 8.000)

    I’m postcrosser, so i definitly now how much sending postcard from my country and i totally sure our post office have not changing their rates.

    Hope you updating your blog.
    Thank you

  8. Carleton

    Hello, I’m currently in Vietnam and the clerk at the main post office in Saigon sold me stamps for 20,000 VND for postcards to Europe and 24,000 VND for postcards to America.

    I’d like to also suggest if you list Alaska in addition to the United States, you might as well list Hawaii as well, since the islands are so far from the US mainland that some people think that it costs more to send cards from there. Thanks for the great site!

    • maud Arnold

      Hi Carleton,
      Thank your for your comment! 😀 We will absolutely add Alaska as soon as possible – very good point!
      We can’t find a postage rate for postcards on the VNPost website unfortunately, so for now we’ve left that field unpopulated.
      Thank you for sharing your experience of sending a postcard in Vietnam – it’ll really help people who also can’t find the cost online!
      Have a lovely week,

  9. Cost to mail a 5×7 inch postcard from USA to Ireland ?

    • maud Arnold

      Hey Martin,
      Thanks for your question! The cost to send a standard postcard internationally from the USA to Europe is $1.15 which is about €1.03 in Euros. I hope that helps – have fun in America!

  10. Hi, local Malaysian here. Sending a postcard from Malaysia to the world cost only RM0.50 (0.12 USD). However, if your postcard size is bigger than standard it will charge as an international letter (normally they don’t care if you send a bigger size with RM0.50 stamp because most postcards in tourist attraction place are bigger than standard).

    • maud Arnold

      Hey Sasha,
      Thank you so much for your comment! Very handy to know they often accept slightly larger postcards for the same rate of postage in Malaysia. 🙂
      Hope you’re staying safe,

    Europe has become very expensive as far as postage on postcards is concerned.
    I have stopped posting in Europe except from Cyprus and Germany, Malta has recently increased their rates so that’s out as well.
    Otherwise I post from India, Srilanka and Malaysia.
    My 70 postcards sent out from Galapagos Islands 25 years ago still haven’t arrived, nor 30 postcards sent from Egypt 4 years ago.

      Wow, interesting about your postcards from so many years ago! I’m curious to know how you ended up sending so many postcards from the Galapagos Islands! 😀
      You’re totally right, Europe has some of the most expensive postage rates internationally. If you ever find yourself in a country where this is the case, check out our app, MyPostcard. We offer free worldwide delivery on our postcards, and you get to personalize them with your own photos!
      Hope you’re having a great lead up to the holiday season,
