Looking to create an out-of-office autoreply to let your customers know you’re off on holiday? Setting an out-of-office message for holidays is essential so that you can enjoy your break without having to constantly check your inbox. Here are some examples of office closed templates you are welcomed to use.

1 Simple Autoreply Message #1

Our office will remain closed for Christmas. We assure you that all your emails will be answered as soon as we return to the office.

Merry Christmas!

2 Simple Autoreply Message #2

Merry Christmas and thanks for your email! I’m taking a few days off to spend time with my family and friends, so I won’t be answering emails as quickly as usual. You can expect to hear back from me by (insert date).

Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

3 Simple Autoreply Message #3

Happy holidays! I am currently out of the office, with no email access. I’ll be returning on (insert date) and will get back to you as soon as I can.

Happy holidays!

4 Respond to Urgent Emails Only

If you’re taking a few days off and want to respond only to urgent emails, this template would be a great fit.

I am currently out of the office and will be back to work on (insert date). If something urgent comes up, you can let me know by emailing me with the word “URGENT” in your email title and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.

Wishing you and your family a happy holiday!

Talk to you soon.

5 Provide Your Mobile Number

This template comes handy if you don’t prefer checking your inbox during the holiday but want to provide your mobile number for urgent inquiry.

Thank you for your message. I am currently out of the office, with no email access. I will be returning on (insert date).

If you need immediate assistance before then, you may reach me at my mobile – (Mobile Number).


Of course, you can change the wording to suit your style but don’t spend too much time fluffing about. The idea is a short and simple message.
