In Canada, the honeymoon season is already underway, with Canada Post starting delivering honeymoon boxes in mid-August.
And in Australia, Australia Post is launching its first honeymoon package delivery program in 2018.
Canada Post said the new delivery program will allow customers to have their packages delivered within the next 30 days, with no waiting period.
“If you have a package, we want you to get it out as soon as possible so you can celebrate your new loved one with your family, friends and loved ones,” a spokesperson for Canada Post said in a statement.
Alyssa Leung, a senior marketing strategist with Australian online retailer Todoist, said the company was keen to encourage Canadians to get their packages on the road.
“This will make it easier for us to sell our holiday packages and get them to the people who need them,” Leung said.
Canada is among the first countries in the world to offer honeymoon delivery, after launching its honeymoon program in 2016.
The U.S. has also been offering honeymoon deliveries, but has been limited to smaller packages that have a price tag.
The U.K. is the second country to offer the service.
Alyssa Koehler, a spokesperson with The London Times, said she had no details on pricing for the service in the U.N. or the U,K., but that she hoped that the new service would be “a great addition to the Canadian market.”
She added that the service was “one of the things that we’re doing at home right now” as well, adding that it would “help us grow our business, so we’re not just focusing on it on the front end, but also the back end.”
“We’re doing a lot of the work to try to make sure that it’s a seamless experience and we’re trying to get a lot more people into our delivery services,” Koehl said.
Australia is also gearing up for the honeymoons, with the country’s postal service announcing a new honeymoon box delivery program that will start in 2018 and be rolled out across the country.
