It’s that time of year again! We all expect Christmas to be extra special this year and what better way to show your loved ones how much they mean to you than gifting them that special something they’ve been yearning for?
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.
To help keep your Christmas planning on track, we’ve put together a list of last posting deadlines for France, Europe and the rest of the world.
Even when sending gifts within 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 23rd at a discounted rate.
Here are the last posting dates for deliveries in France:
|Delivery Service||Post by*|
|UPS Standard||Wednesday 22nd December|
UPS Express Saver
|Thursday 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 Wednesday 22nd for a collection on Thursday 23rd. If you would like to drop off a parcel please check the opening and collection times for 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||Tuesday 21st December||Thursday 16th December|
|Rest of world||Thursday 16th December|
*Your parcel must be with the courier by this date.
