1st December 2022, 12:12pm in Shipping Advice by Amy Newham

With Christmas fast approaching, the parcel networks will become very busy. We suggest you allow plenty of time for delivery, especially if you plan to send a Christmas gift or order internationally.

Drop Off and Economy services typically have tighter deadlines than Next Day, Express or Same Day services. To provide the best service this Christmas, we have published all our carrier’s final posting dates on our homepage. The latest recommended posting dates differ by courier and service. Here is a quick overview:

Final posting dates:

Christmas Last Deliveries

UK– 24th December 2022

We offer an extensive range of fast and reliable domestic shipping, perfect for the busy festive period. If you’ve left your delivery to the last minute, rest assured you can send a parcel even on Christmas Eve with CitySprint.

CitySprint can make your Christmas dreams come true with a range of super-quick, same-day collection services. Depending on the size of your shipment, you can choose from low-cost services like CitySprint Motorcycle, CitySprint Small Van, CitySprint Transit Van, or CitySprint LWB.

Of course, there are many other UK courier services available. Please be mindful that most of our UK Express courier services must be booked before 22nd December. Similarly, our Drop Off and Standard service with carriers like DPD and DHL have earlier deadlines. So, as we always say, please allow plenty of time for shipping.

Europe- 21st December 2022

Planning to send a parcel from the UK to Europe?

You can send a parcel to a European country in a few working days with reputable couriers like Evri, FedEx Express and UPS. For example, you can send a package to Germany with Evri International ParcelShop in 2-5 working days.

Like all international deliveries, parcels from the UK to a country abroad require a customs invoice. We’ve incorporated the customs form within our booking process, making it simple to send your Christmas parcels abroad.

Worldwide- 20th December 2022

We can send packages to countries all around the globe. We’ve negotiated an excellent discount with globally-recognised couriers like Spring Global, ECMS and Landmark Global. However, some international standard parcel deliveries must be sent by 8th December (only two weeks away!)

Please be mindful that transit times and shipping costs vary from country to country. Enter your parcel details and delivery postcode into our Quote Tool for an accurate results list.
