Dear Oliver Johnson,
Only 3 weeks to Christmas! If you still have gifts to send via post or courier, don’t miss our Christmas last posting dates for UK and international deliveries.
For parcels that need to arrive in time for Christmas Day, the last day to book Parcelforce Express 48 for UK deliveries is the 19th December for collection on the 20th. If you choose a drop-off service, we recommend you allow one extra day, just in case you miss the collection from the drop-off point.
Last posting dates for international deliveries vary, depending on the destination and service, but as a guide, shipping deadlines for economy services to destinations like Australia, Asia, the USA, the Middle East and Europe, start from the 9th December.
Our courier partners will be increasing their delivery capacity during this busy time, however, delays are still possible so don’t wait, send your parcels early and relax with the peace of mind that they will arrive in time.
Not shipping from the UK?
You can find US Holiday Shipping Dates and France Christmas Shipping Deadlines on our Parcel Monkey USA and Parcel Monkey France comparison sites.
Dear Oliver Johnson,
It’s time to send those Christmas gifts!
If you’ve still got Christmas gifts to send then don’t delay any longer.
Parcel volumes are staggering this year and with only two weeks to go until the big day, Christmas gifts should be sent as soon as possible, especially if you’re posting abroad.
If you’re sending gifts in the UK, please allow extra time for UK deliveries too. Royal Mail has already reported delays and while our courier partners have made every preparation possible to keep your parcels moving, the best thing you can do to help is to post your gifts early.
So let’s all pull together one last time for 2020. If you still have a parcel to send, book your delivery now!

Hi Oliver Johnson
At Parcel Monkey, we understand that the ongoing fight against Coronavirus has not only impacted the way we go about our lives, but it has created uncertainty and concern about everyday tasks. A simple trip to the Post Office for example, may now be a risk you’re not willing to take.
If you have a parcel to send, we want to take this time to assure you that Parcel Monkey is operating as usual and we are following Government advice and working with our courier partners to ensure the safety of drivers and customers.
To make sending parcels a little easier during this time, here are our top tips for shipping during the COVID-19 Pandemic:
Can you catch Coronavirus from a parcel?
COVID-19 can survive on surfaces, however, The World Health Organization has stated: ‘the risk of catching the virus that causes COVID-19 from a package that has been moved, travelled, and exposed to different conditions and temperature is low.’
How can I minimise risk further?
If you are worried about receiving packages, there are several measures you can take to further minimise your risk:
Has your eCommerce business been affected by COVID-19?
Our flexible shipping and fulfilment services could help you keep your stock moving during this difficult time. Find out more or get in touch here.
Dear Oliver Johnson,
Are you sending Christmas gifts by post this year?
If the answer is yes, then it’s time to get organised. You don’t need to be the smug one who had all your gifts wrapped by October (no one likes a show-off), but when it comes to posting Christmas gifts, a little planning can go a long way.
Parcel Monkey is here to help. Not only will we save you time and money by helping you book discounted services with awesome couriers like Parcelforce, DPD and DHL, but we’ve also put together a helpful guide to Christmas last posting dates for UK and international deliveries.
If you’re sending a parcel overseas, the last posting dates for economy services to international destinations start from December 1st. That means you can keep your delivery costs down by posting by this date. UK parcels can be sent much later but you can still benefit from discounted rates on services such as Parcelforce Express 48 if you book by December 21st.
So, keep calm this Christmas and plan ahead. Last posting dates are a great guide, but for real peace of mind always send gifts as early as possible. The sooner your gifts arrive at their destination, the sooner you can relax and treat yourself to an extra mince pie.
P.S Need to send more than one gift? No problem, when you book online with Parcel Monkey, you’ll be able to send and track multiple parcels all in one place.
