How to beat the postal strike when ordering online.

The postal workers in the UK have confirmed today that they will be holding a complete nationwide strike next Thursday and Friday in the UK.  During the strike the cheapest way to ensure a parcel, important letter or gift reaches its destination is to upgrade it to the Royal Mails guaranteed next day delivery service.  Not all the staff who work for Royal Mail are members of the postal workers union and the remaining staff at work will be tasked with delivering this high priority mail.   If you need to buy something online it’s best to order in plenty of time and then look for low cost upgrades to next day delivery as a good way to beat the strike.
