  Currency and postage policy  
  We are a small organisation so when you order from us you will inevitably receive personal service. We aim to dispatch books within three working days of receiving your order and often it’s the same day.  
  Please note that we accept card and PayPal payments through our online shop, or you can write to us if you prefer to pay by cheque. Regrettably we do not have the security systems in place to accept payment over the phone. Loaghtan Books only accept payment in GB Sterling (GBS).  
  Retail customers should contact Loaghtan Books for trade rates.  
  Delivery charges
 
  British Isles

Delivery to addresses within the British Isles is free of charge.

Europe

If you are ordering a book to be sent to a European address then there is a charge of £10.77 (GBS) per book, regardless of size, for postage and packing.

Rest of the World (excluding USA)

If you are ordering a book to be sent to an address that is not in the British Isles, Europe or the USA, then your order is subject to one of two rates of postage and packing according to the size and weight of the book ordered.

The easiest way to distinguish the two categories is by the price of the book ordered (smaller and lighter books are cheaper to ship).

Any book ordered from us with a retail price of £5.95 or less will be subject to a charge of £10.77 (GBS) for postage and packing.

Our CD audiobook with sound effects will also be subject to a charge of £10.77 (GBS) for postage and packing.

All our other titles will be subject to a charge of £14.82 (GBS) for postage and packing.

USA

Due to changes in US law, postage to the USA is now extremely expensive. Please contact us if you wish to buy our books and we will advise you on how much the postage will be and how to place an order.
 
  Sorry about the postage charges but books are heavy and postage charges correspondingly high. If you wish to check the fairness of what we charge then have a look at www.iompost.com  
  Thank you for shopping with us.
