If you are unsure of your requirements then you can contact our Customer Services Team.
All charges are made in £ (GBP). We do not charge you until the day your order is packed ready to be sent.
Like most websites, our delivery prices are based on averages. If you are ordering a large number of titles and we find that there is a significant difference between the delivery charge in your order to the actual cost to Foyles we will reduce the cost to our actual cost where we can; alternatively, we will contact you if for some reason there is a much higher cost. We will absorb any reasonable increases without further charge.
We reserve the right to change our delivery charges without notice and may vary our promotional offers.
Courier is a tracked service and may require a signature upon receipt.
