The weekday Daily Mail's cover price will rise by 5p from Monday, the first increase on these days since February 2016. Monday through Friday, the price of the newspaper will rise from 65p to 70p. The Saturday issue of the Daily Mail costs PS1, while the Sunday edition costs PS1.80. These are the highest prices ever for these editions.
In addition, from next week the Daily Mail will include a new section called "Your Weekend", which will be included with the paper and will offer readers advice on what to do this weekend and also pick their favorite things about the week ahead.
The Daily Mail has been going up in price every year since it was bought by Richard Desmond in December 2012. The paper was then priced at €1.30 ($1.48) but now costs €1 ($1.16).
Desmond said in a statement: "We're confident that our Mail will continue to be the number one read newspaper in England because we focus exclusively on news and opinion that matter most to people."
The Daily Mail has been criticized for its highly partisan view and has been described as a "right-wing rag" that supports Brexit and other acts that divide the European community. It has also been accused of printing false stories about celebrities including Angelina Jolie and Jon Bon Jovi.
The price of the Saturday edition of the Daily Telegraph will rise by 20p on February 5, but the publisher will defer the increased retail margin for six months. The NFRN reports that copies in England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland will be upgraded to PS3 this weekend.
The paper's circulation has been declining for several years, with an average of 3 million copies per day in 2015, down from 3.1 million in 2005. The Sunday Telegraph has a similar audience size to the Saturday version, so together they form around five percent of daily newspaper sales.
Telegraph Media Group chairman David Pemsel said: "We are confident that with this increase to the retail price of the Saturday edition and the introduction of a Saturday paper, we will be able to further develop and expand our offer while continuing to deliver quality journalism to our customers."
The group also announced plans to close its print operation in Holland and reduce its presence in Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Chile, France, Germany, India, Israel, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, and the United States. Around 700 jobs will be lost as a result.
Paul Drane, media analyst at Enders Analysis, said: "This is yet another example of how expensive it is to produce a newspaper and not enough people are going to buy them.

In 2014, the paper had 69 employees. Of these, 17 were classified as editorial staff, including four writers who were paid $60,000 annually. Nine others were classified as management staff, including two printers who earned $80,000 and $90,000 respectively. The remaining 31 employees worked in various capacities across the organization.
