Royal Mail has announced that it will cut the cost of its parcels from October 20 until January 18th.
The price of sending some parcels is to be cut in the run up to Christmas. The average savings will be around £5.20 per package, the Royal Mail has announced. The size of a ‘small’ parcel will double to 2kg and will cost £2.80, this would have previously cost customers £8.
Speaking of the promotion, Nick Landon, Managing Director of Royal Mail Parcels, said: ‘We are pleased to further simplify our stamped parcels portfolio to provide great value and support consumers and small businesses.
‘To launch the new small parcel format we are introducing a festive price promotion that will benefit customers sending Christmas presents to friends and relatives, marketplace sellers and smaller businesses selling gifts online,’ he added.
Will more people use the postal service this Christmas or will click and collect be the more popular option?
