Which delivery option should I choose?
You may choose to have your vouchers delivered by Royal Mail UK Standard 1st Class, Royal Mail Tracked & Signed or International Tracked & Signed.
Our team aim for postal vouchers to be dispatched the same day, providing the order was placed before 1 pm, Monday-Friday, excluding bank holidays. In which case, they will be sent out on the next working day. (Please note that orders placed after 1pm on a Friday will be posted out on the following Monday unless it is a bank holiday.) In peak times such as Black Friday and Christmas the dispatch time may be extended due to high volumes of orders.
Please allow up to 5 working days for the voucher to be delivered by Royal Mail. (Please note, UK First Class post does not guarantee delivery within the above timescales, and cannot be traced if it goes missing. Delivery is by Royal Mail therefore we cannot be held responsible for delays caused by the postal system.)
