Fees are typically charged during a holding period. However, each newspaper company has its own specific policies regarding fees during a service holding period, so it is best to contact a newspaper directly to learn the options.
Some newspapers give their readers up to three options. Some newspapers allow subscribers to donate their unused newspapers to schools. Newspapers often also are willing to hold all newspapers from the holding period and deliver them upon the restart of service. The third option is to obtain credit for the period of the hold, using it to extend the subscription period. Subscribers should always notify their newspapers a minimum of three days before a delivery hold is to begin.
