* Oversize items - these are very large 3D relief maps of, for example, the Mont-Blanc Massif and the Pyrenees etc and wall maps which are in tubes greater than 120cm in length.  These are treated as being 'oversize' by the courier companies and are surcharged.  For UK Mainland, this equates to a delivery charge of £28.00.  For Europe and the Rest of the World, shipping is higher than we would like but represents the costs imposed by the courier companies for oversized items.

** PLEASE NOTE!  If you are in France you MUST have an EORI number as well as a TVA/VAT number AND either a passport or national identity card for us to be able to dispatch anything to you by courier.  This was a change to French import rules which took effect from 1 January 2022.
