Overseas Courier Delivery

You will be charged a shipping cost for your order. Orders will be despatched using our international courier. This method is fully secure, and we can track and trace the shipment for you. Orders placed by this method should usually reach you within seven to eight working days of despatch for European destinations, and within seven to ten working days of despatch for the rest of the world. Orders sent via this method will require a signature upon receipt. Please note courier delivery cannot be made to PO Boxes.

Delivery Costs:

  • Europe - £7.50

  • Rest of the World - £12.50

  • We would request that you register a contact telephone number when using our International shipping method. This will mean that the courier company can contact you should they have problems finding your address.


    The prices payable for goods are as set out in the website, inclusive of VAT where applicable (books are currently zero rated). Customers ordering for delivery outside of the UK will be responsible for payment of any local taxes payable including VAT, and will be required to pay extra for delivery and clearance where necessary.

    Customs Charges

    If you are ordering goods for delivery outside of the UK, please note that your consignment may be subject to import duties and taxes, which are levied once the goods reach the country of destination. Any such charges levied in relation to customs clearance must be paid by you. It is accepted by you that Waterstones has no control over additional charges in relation to customs clearance. Waterstones recommend that you check with your local customs officials or post office for more information regarding importation taxes/duties that may be applicable to your online order. You will be the importer of record and responsible for any import VAT and duty that needs to be paid. In addition, any charges for import clearance will be paid by you, the customer.
