Post Office Contact Number: 0345 611 2970

Contact the Post Office by calling their general enquiries phone number 0345 611 2970 to find your nearest branch, for the full cost of sending a parcel via Royal Mail, for banking customer services and to submit a formal complaint.

The Post Office is a publicly-owned institution which was formerly part of the wider group which included Royal Mail, however both are now separate organisations. Customers may phone the Post Office on their general enquiries contact number 0345 611 2970 to find their nearest branch and to get the opening times for any of their UK network. You should also telephone their customer care staff to make a formal complaint about a missing parcel which was sent from one of their offices, similarly you can also apply for a refund if your UK passport application was rejected despite using their check & send service.

The Post Office contact number is open 8:15-6pm Monday-Friday and 8:30am-2pm Saturday, however these opening times may be reduced on UK bank holiday dates. Calls are charged at the exact same rate as phoning local 01 and 02 phone numbers, which under standard circumstances you will pay a per-minute rate alongside an access charge. However these charges can be avoided if you get free inclusive calls on your mobile tariff or landline contract deal.
