Royal Mail announce last posting dates for Christmas 2020

Royal Mail has announced its late posting dates for Christmas 2020. 

Within the UK, the latest recommended posting dates go pretty deep into December.  But don't get caught out. Royal Mail recommends sending by:

  • Friday December 18 if using 2nd Class and 2nd Class Signed For
  • Monday December 21 if using 1st Class, 1st Class Signed For and Royal Mail Tracked 48
  • Tuesday December 22 if using Royal Mail Tracked 24
  • Wednesday December 23 if using Special Delivery Guaranteed

Sending internationally needs to be done a little sooner - very soon in some instances!

To send to all non-European destinations using International Economy, excluding South Africa, Canada, Middle and Far East and the USA, the deadline to use International Economy has passed.

Parcels may still arrive on time, but the recommended date was 5th October.
