*Each country has their own duties and taxes, so you are responsible for any incurred fees when you receive your order.*

Orders between 10€ and 150€ customers are likely to be charged Import Tax and a handling fee.

Orders over 150€ customers are likely to be charged Import Tax, handling fee AND a Customs Charge.

If this happens we will search all available courier options to ensure we offer you the cheapest courier price available. We will then contact you to see if you wish to proceed with your order.
