What to do if you miss the last posting date

Royal Mail have a page on their website where it is possible to find out the last Christmas posting dates for international destinations.

But what do Royal Mail recommend if, after choosing your destination, the deadline for that country has already passed? Under the heading What to do next it suggests: “Try a different service or destination”.

How useful! Instead of sending the parcel to the person it is intended for, I could send it to someone random in a completely different country! I would never have thought of that.

And as for “a different service”, if it’s too late to send by Airmail, the only other option to most international destinations is Surface Mail. Perhaps Royal Mail’s intention is to ensure the gifts arrive in time for next Christmas.
