Special price of special delivery

POST is delivered on Saturday - but it’s not a working day, all right?

Therefore the next day special delivery fee is double.

Jim Hinchey was outraged to learn that the charge to deliver a letter before 1pm on Saturday morning was £9.24.

The weekday rate is an already pricey £5.45

Jim, of Wood Royd, Deepcar, was in the Angel Street Post Office in the city centre when he made the shock discovery: “How can they justify it?”


A Royal Mail spokeswoman said: “Due to a previous complaint the customer had, the Post Office manager offered, as a one-off gesture of goodwill, to send the item at the weekday cost.”
