FAQs – Delivery of parcels on Easter Monday and Good Friday

Do parcels get delivered on Good Friday and Easter Monday?
Since the couriers respect local calendars, it varies for each country and what dates are considered public holidays in each location. In the UK, for example, Good Friday is regarded as a national holiday whereas in the USA it is only a non-working day in some states. Similarly, Easter Monday is not considered a federal holiday in the USA or the UK, but it is celebrated in Wales and England.
Therefore, to find out if the couriers work and if your parcels will be delivered on Good Friday or Easter Monday, check the local calendar for your specific route beforehand, having in mind also the Orthodox Easter holidays. To make things easier, check our list above.
How to know if specific companies such as UPS, FedEx or Hermes work on Good Friday and Easter Monday?
To find out if couriers such as UPS, FedEx, Hermes or DPD deliver on Good Friday and Easter Monday, you should check not only the official holidays of your country but also the companies' schedule.
For example, UPS offers regular pick-up and delivery services on Good Friday in the USA, but the same does not apply to the UK. Therefore, each courier company has their schedule adapted to the country of operation.
How about the regular post service, does it run regularly on Easter Monday?
The postal companies such as the Royal Mail also work by the local holidays. There will not be post service on Easter Monday for locations where this date is considered a public holiday. For other areas, both postal and courier companies should work normally.
To avoid any inconvenience, we recommend shipping your Easter presents 2-5 days in advance.
Is it allowed to send chocolate easter eggs abroad by post or courier?
Since chocolate is a food item, it is usually included in the category of restricted or prohibited items to ship by most delivery companies. However, that does not stop thousands of people who still decide to send their easter eggs as a present by post or courier. Since insurance will not be applicable for this item, make sure to protect it in the best way possible to avoid any damage during transit. Check our dedicated page to learn how to pack chocolate safely.
If you do not feel comfortable about sending Easter eggs by post at your own risk, you can choose to send an Easter basket with gifts that can be shipped abroad. Simply make your own gift basket with some of his/her favourite items and book the delivery with us.
