Subsidised European Shipping


It is the aim of TUG.com to make buying your next kite as easy and hassle free as possible. To this end, I have negoatiated an excellent shipping contract with DHL to serve customers across Europe. Reference the coloured map above.

GREEN areas (Scotland, England, Wales, Northern Ireland): It is my aspiration to provide free shipping within the UK. i will ask you to pay by bank transfer to my sterling account in London. I will use Royal mail for the smaller packages and a courier for larger. If your order includes any fabric on a roll, then please add £10 to cover the premium charged for long packages.

YELLOW areas. Most of Europe. Here the subsidised shipping is at flat rate. €20 for any number of kites plus €10 if your order includes any fabric on a roll. I will invoice you the price that includes VAT(MwSt). You don't have to pay the VAT to you local courier office or tax office, I will take care of that and the kite will arrive at your door with nothing more to pay.

RED areas. The furthest edges of Europe. Here the subsidised shipping is also at a flat rate. €30 for any number of kites plus €10 if your order includes any fabric on a roll. I will invoice you the price that includes VAT(MwSt). You don't have to pay the VAT to you local courier office or tax office, I will take care of that and the kite will arrive at your door with nothing more to pay.

Please note that this arrangement means the least cost, hassle and inconvenience because I pay the VAT rather than you. But this also means that you don't get an EU VAT receipt. If you need this receipt, then please discuss this with me so that we can use a different method.
