On vacation? Relax. We’ll handle your deliveries on your schedule.

Your luggage is packed. You’ve loaded up the car. The kids are buckled in the back seat. But wait — what about the packages you’re expecting while you’re away?

No worries. Just tell us how you want your package delivery handled. With FedEx Delivery ManagerSM, you decide when you want your packages, where you want them, or even if you want them delivered while you’re away. It’s delivery on your schedule, not ours.

The choice is yours
When you sign up for FedEx Delivery Manager, you can customize your deliveries to make them work for you.

  • Leaving for a few days or longer? You can request to have your deliveries suspended until you return.
  • Have specific instructions? Choose where you want your package left while you’re away. And when you return from vacation, you can easily change your delivery instructions so your packages are left at the back or front door, apartment office, and so on. Whatever works best for you.
  • Need to coordinate your delivery? If you’ve arranged for a friend to stop by your house for the package, you can schedule a specific range of time for its delivery.
  • Do you prefer notification by text? Email? Phone call? Select how you want to get notified ahead of time that your package is on its way.
  • Does your delivery require a signature? Sign for your package in advance and authorize its delivery, even if you’re not there.
  • Need it now? If your package is already en route, you can redirect its delivery to another address. 
  • Got time to spare? Request the Hold at FedEx Location option. We’ll deliver your FedEx Express® and FedEx Ground® packages to the FedEx Office location nearest you so you can pick it up at your convenience.*

Added convenience
Here’s a handy tip: When traveling by air, save on baggage costs by shipping your luggage or golf clubs to your vacation spot ahead of time. Or select the Hold at FedEx Location option so you can pick up your luggage at a nearby FedEx location when it’s convenient for you. 

Bringing home more than you started out with? Ship your souvenirs, gifts and other purchases to your neighborhood FedEx location. We’ll keep them secure while you’re enjoying your time away.

Make changes the easy way
With FedEx Delivery Manager, you can change your delivery options to fit your current needs — even when you’ve already set out on your vacation. Use your computer or mobile device for easy access.
