Most newspapers allow subscribers to suspend delivery temporarily by contacting the newspaper's customer service office by phone or email. Some papers may also allow subscribers to place a hold on their deliveries online by logging in to their customer accounts.
Some newspapers require subscribers to inform them ahead of time that they want to suspend delivery. For example, the New Observer requires subscribers inform them two business days in advance of the day they want to suspend delivery. Other papers place a limit on the length of time customers can suspend delivery. Check with the subscription department of a particular paper to find out about any restrictions on suspending delivery.
