Royal Mail Christmas Collections

If you have your mail collected normally, you will need to inform Royal Mail of what collections you will require between 24th and 31st December.

If you’re closing throughout the Christmas period then you all you need to do is give Royal Mail a few details and job done! You can do so here:

However if you are planning to book one or more collections please note:

  • You only need to book ahead for 24, 27, 30 and 31 December (plus 28 December, if you usually have a Saturday collection). We’ll be collecting as usual throughout the rest of December.
  • On Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve we’ll be collecting between 11am and 2pm so if you want us to call, please book your collection and have your mail ready from 11am.
  • On Saturday 28 December, we’ll be collecting at the normal time but only from customers who have a regular Saturday collection and who have booked one for that day.
