With holidays just around the corner, it might be wise to check Royal Mail’s Christmas post dates for 2021.
The dates come into effect in the coming days, and Royal Mail has advised people to be prompt in posting their Christmas cards and gifts abroad if they want them delivered in time.
Royal Mail has said: “Allow plenty of time for posting. Please post items and gifts for Christmas early, particularly for International deliveries.
“Ongoing Covid restrictions, reduced air and freight capacity, high volumes and winter weather conditions are all impacting transportation and local delivery across the globe.”
To avoid overburdening the Royal Mail at their busiest time of the year and potentially leaving loved ones giftless at Christmas, senders should take note of the following dates.
