To make sure you get your cards and presents to your loved ones on time this year, Langford Rae Property Agents in Chelsfield have put together a list of the last Christmas post and order dates for Royal Mail and Amazon.  Royal Mail’s latest recommended posting dates for delivery in the UK in 2019 are as follows:


·         Wednesday, December 18 for second class mail

·         Friday, December 20 for first class mail

·         Monday, December 23 for special delivery 


There will be no delivery and collection service from Christmas Day through to Boxing day, however normal service will resume on Friday, December 27.

On New Year's Day there will be no deliveries or collections. In Scotland, January 2 is a bank holiday so there will be no deliveries or collections north of the border.

Unfortunately, the last posting dates for International Economy (formerly known as Surface Mail) destinations and the rest of the world using the International Standard (formerly known as Airmail) service have now passed

Amazon's last order dates for Christmas 2019

·         Saturday, December 21 for Free Delivery.

·         Sunday, December 22 for Standard Delivery. 

·         Monday, December 23 for One-Day Delivery. Your order will arrive on Tuesday, December 24. Prime members get unlimited One-Day delivery, while non-Prime members pay £4.99. 

·         Tuesday, December 24 for Same-Day Delivery and Prime Now 2-Hour Delivery. To get your order on the same day, you should aim to get it in before noon, though the cut off time depends on the product and your location.
