Royal Mail to reduce cost of sending parcels over Christmas, saving families more than £5 per package

The price of sending some parcels is to be cut in the run up to Christmas, saving consumers up to £5.20 per package, the Royal Mail has announced. The size of a ‘small’ parcel will effectively double to 2kg, at a cost of £2.80. A package this large would have previously been classed as ‘medium’ size and would have cost customers £8.

The promotion will last from October 20 to January 18, allowing families and businesses to make savings by sending larger items at a reduced rate, and cramming more into a single package than they would have been able to previously.
