On Air Early Breakfast Chris Williams | 5:00am - 7:30am

Post early for Christmas

Those sending letters and parcels to far-flung destinations abroad this Christmas have just over three weeks to go before the last posting date.

Items bound for south America, the Caribbean, Africa, the Middle east, Asia and the Far East should be sent no later than December the 7th.

December the 10th is the date for mail destined for the USA, Canada, Japan and eastern Europe.

And to the UK the last date for cards and packets is Thursday December 20th.

Isle of Man Post says the Douglas Sorting Office will operate longer opening hours from December 3rd.

And the advice - as always - help them to help you - use the post or zip code and post early!
