The beautiful small port of Frikes is a very popular overnight destination for yachts sailing in the Ionian Sea. The image shows yachts rafted up behind the harbour wall. Great in fine weather but can be very uncomfortable in a swell.

Postage within your Country:

 

Although we generally use our UK Royal Mail Postal Services when sending our products to Countries outside of the UK, at some time in the postal process the delivery will be handed over to your National Postal Service who will continue the delivery process to you. However, we usually advise you of a tracking reference, and you should still be able to see where your delivery is within your own postal system.

 

Customs & Excise Duty in your Country:

The products we are sending to you following purchase, are printed stationery forms for educational use, encapsulated in a matt plastic sleeve, and/or wire bound books containing printed stationery forms. Additionally and included with some of our product offers, we will include a see-through plastic folder. We also include a printed paper invoice for your purchased goods which shows the value and a description of the goods, together with printed paper documents explaining how to use our planning forms. We will complete and include a UK Customs Declaration form with the shipment.

We are not VAT registered in the UK and as the purpose and construction of our forms is mainly printed paper for educational use, we would not generally anticipate that you, the purchaser would need to pay any further taxes, customs duty and/or VAT on the purchased products in your Country.

However other additional charges by your receiving Country Customs & Excise may be charged and we have to advise you, the purchaser, that the payment of any or all of such possible additional charges will be your responsibility. These may include additional charges from the postal delivery company within your Country even though our shipping charge is for delivery to you from the UK (excluding possible additional delivery from Customs). This subject is further explained in our Terms & Conditions of Sale .

 

Examples of such fees are as follows:

a. determining the contents and value of the parcel b. if necessary, contacting the addressee when the contents, value and details of the parcel do not correspond or are incomplete c. drawing up the required customs declaration d. storage and custody fees for collecting and passing on the customs duties.
