DPD 2024 Holiday ScheduleUpdated 4 months ago

DPD's 2024 holiday schedule for parcels includes the following dates:
  • Monday, April 1: Easter Monday, closed
  • Monday, May 6: Early May Bank Holiday, closed
  • Monday, May 27: Spring Bank Holiday, closed
  • Monday, August 26: Summer Bank Holiday, closed
  • Wednesday, December 25: Christmas Day, closed
  • Thursday, December 26: Boxing Day, closed

DPD works around the clock with prolonged opening hours on the days before Christmas to deliver as many parcels as possible.

Couriers usually extend estimated delivery times around Christmas because they handle more parcels than usual during this period. They often face additional delays because of heavy traffic or adverse weather conditions.

We recommend ordering well in advance to avoid late deliveries and disappointment. Make sure you add 2 or 3 extra working days if you are shipping in December, especially right before Christmas.
