In the UK, Whistl aim to deliver in three working days and use the Royal Mail for delivery. They don't make any guarantees but we find them to be very reliable these days (we cannot guarantee that your package will arrive on an exact date, but we try to get it as close as we can). It's also worth saying that they are extremely good at Christmas and special occasions.
European destinations tend to take three to five working days. The Rest of the World should be six to ten working days.
Depending on the reliability of the local postal service, remoteness of the address, seasonal weather, etc, the Royal Mail can only estimate delivery transit times. We are very fortunate to say that all our overseas deliveries have arrived safely so far. Amazing, really, considering some of the remote islands and locations.
The Royal Mail are still having issues with staff self-isolating when pinged. Deliveries are sometimes slow as parcels can visit many depots on the journey and each can be affected by staff absences that change daily. The normal post has no tracking so we will not know where it is once it leaves us. Please visit the Service Update page here for current information on any UK postage delays.
International deliveries are hugely affected and we do not have tracking. Some countries are impounding deliveries to allow infection to clear. Some are only accepting by boat, which is slower. We cannot guarantee any delivery times, or even guess at them. It's beyond our control and is incredibly frustrating and we are very sorry for the delays.
Since 1st July 2021, the VAT-free threshold of €22 has been removed. Under EU regulations, VAT may now be charged in the destination country. Customs admin fees may also be charged.
This is beyond our control and many of our existing European customers has reported no fees being charged. It seems very hot or miss. Please note that there is no VAT or charges for coffee in the UK.
According to the Royal Mail, in 2019, the Universal Postal Union agreed to allow the US to set dues/prices themselves from 1 July 2020. It will see a significant increase of over 100% in the the rates paid for last mile delivery in the US. This information can be found on the Royal Mail website.
In addition, the Royal Mail have seen 95% less air passenger flights as a result of Covid-19 and are using air freight. This is considerably more expensive and has led to a five-fold increase in their conveyance costs to the US following the pandemic.
A Blue Coffee Box now costs us £10.74 to send to the USA. We are only charging £6.99 of this.
