The Post Office are anticipating Monday, December 12 to be the busiest day this Christmas for Post Office branches across the country.

In 2021, the two weeks ahead of Christmas saw Post Offices more than double their trading activity and Post Office are expecting a similar pattern this year so customers are advised to plan ahead and post early.

To ensure your Post Office experience is as smooth as possible ensure the following: parcels are wrapped as neatly as possible; check for prohibited and restricted items before sending; ensure writing, especially addresses are clear and legible; avoid the lunch time rush as this is likely to be one of the busiest times and keep track of last posting dates when sending abroad.
