International Economy Last Posting Dates For Christmas 2015
Are you planning to send cards, letters or parcels to far flung places by surface mail via Royal Mail which need to reach their destination in time for Christmas? If the answer if ‘yes’ there is no time delay!
It may still be September but today is the recommended latest posting date for surface mail which is to be sent to Australia, New Zealand, Africa, Asia, South America, Russia and the Caribbean.
Tomorrow is the latest recommended posting date for sending cards, letters or parcels to countries in the Far and Middle East (except Hong Kong and Singapore).
Surface mail, which is also referred to as International Economy, is mail transported by land and sea hence the long lead times to send to far away destinations.
So anyone sending cards and presents overseas needs to embrace the Christmas spirit earlier than most! The good news is that here at the Post Office Shop we sell a wide range of mailing boxes made of strong durable cardboard providing peace of mind that those post items will be adequately secured in transit.
PostPak mailing boxes are conveniently pre-labeled on the red outer face, leaving only the recipient address details to be added to the outer face. So these are highly recommended!
We also sell plenty of the tried and tested bubble wrap which is perfect for protecting any fragile Christmas presents to be sent in the post to friends and family.
