I need to send a letter urgently, can anyone tell me what is the best way to get next day delivery? I cannot find anything on the net but I know there are alternatives to Royal Mail. Thanks!

I think Special Delivery is still operating normally, even though it is part of Royal Mail.

E-mail??

Fax it

Could you DX it? Just find a friend who works in an office!

Thanks everyone for your speedy replies. The letter contains tickets for a theme park that need to be used next week, so I can't email or fax... I could use special delivery but they have removed the next day guarantee because of the strike. All the courier firms only quote for parcels, not letters. It's so confusing!

email?

Phone, text!

A site dedicated to assist you but looks like prices are from £8.99 for a letter
