I know there are a few Netherlands-dwellers who read this blog and I’m wondering if any of you can help me with some questions about the postal service here. I am going out of town for a few days and wondering what will happen if TNT tries to deliver a parcel while I’m gone. I know if I miss it once, they’ll leave me a sticky note and try again. If I miss the delivery multiple times, does the package go to a holding facility where I can pick it up? What happens?
This also raises the question of what happens to the post if I were to go out of town for a longer trip, say, back to the US. In the US you can have your mail “held” if you know you will be away for a longer period of time. What would a Dutch person do in this case?
Thank you for your help! Alstublieft!
