Mail Redirection

If you're moving home or moving your business, redirect your mail at the Post Office from just £33.99

Why redirect your mail?

It's important you make sure you continue to receive your mail when you move home: - You won't miss important documents - You'll help prevent personal details falling into the wrong hands and becoming a victim of fraud. 

You can redirect your mail to any UK or overseas address for 3, 6 or 12 months from just £33.99 for each different last name. 

To set up a redirection you will need:

  • Names and dates of birth of everyone in the household that needs their mail redirected
  • Address and post code of both your old and new addresses


How it works

We can redirect mail from most UK addresses to any UK or international address, even PO Box addresses. 

Redirections to European Union destinations (excluding the UK) are subject to VAT. 

  1. Complete a Redirection form – these are available at a Post Office branch, or you can view one online.
  2. Take your completed Redirection form to your nearest branch, along with the proof of name and address documents requested on the form.
  3. We pass your Redirection to Royal Mail.
  4. Once they’ve received your application, Royal Mail will have your service up and running within five working days.
