Christmas is a special time of year and although it’s likely to be a little different this year, it’s never been more important to reach out to the people you love no matter where they are in the world.
If you’re planning to post gifts to family and friends, it’s time to get organised. Christmas will be upon us before you can say ‘bûche de Noël’ so it’s essential to plan ahead.
Luckily, Parcel Monkey is here to help. Not only will we help you find discounted rates with reputable couriers like Colissimo, Chronopost and UPS, but we’ve also put together the Christmas last posting deadlines for France, Europe and the rest of the world so you can make sure your gifts arrive on time.
Even when sending gifts in France, try not to leave it until the last minute. For peace of mind, send your gifts a couple of weeks before Christmas. There’s plenty to do in the run-up to Christmas, so get your Christmas posting done early and give yourself more time to relax with family and friends.
However, if things don’t go to plan (they often don’t at Christmas), Parcel Monkey can still help you out. Using our shipping calculator, you can book an express courier up until December 22nd at a discounted rate.
Here are the last posting dates for deliveries in France:
|Delivery Service||Post by*|
|Friday 18th December|
|Colissimo||Tuesday 22nd December|
|UPS Standard||Tuesday 22nd December|
|Chronopost 13||Wednesday 23d December (before 10 am)|
UPS Express Saver
|Wednesday 23rd December|
*Your parcel must be with the courier by this date
Top Tip: Your parcel must be with the courier by the specified date so if you’d like your parcel collected, please book the day before you would like the collection. E.g. Book by Tuesday 22nd for a collection on the 23rd. If you would like to drop off a parcel please check the collection times from your local point relais.
If you’re sending gifts to family and friends overseas, Parcel Monkey can help you send a gift to almost any international destination at a discounted price. However, you will need to allow more time for international deliveries at Christmas, especially if you want to avoid paying extra for an express service.
The table below shows the last posting dates* for express and economy services to Europe and the rest of the world.
|Europe||18th December||11th December|
|Rest of world||17th December||9th December|
*Your parcel must be with the courier by this date.
