Important note: we cannot fully guarantee your selected day of delivery. We use DPD for our balloon deliveries and whilst 99% of our balloons arrive on the day you select, sometimes errors and issues beyond our control occur. DPD do an excellent job, but do have unexpected delays on occasions. If your balloon is delivered early (particularly Sunday/Monday deliveries) or 1 day later than expected then we will be unable to offer a refund. Please note that Sunday and Monday deliveries are at risk of being delivered early, DPD often upgrade these deliveries in order to move items through their network, this is rare but does occur and we have no control over this. We would recommend if the event date is important, that you select a delivery date the day before your desired date.
Saturday and Sunday deliveries are charged at £4.98 and £4.99 respectively, this represents the upgrade cost that DPD charge.


As we offer free weekday delivery and subsidised weekend delivery on all our Balloon in a Box items, these do not contribute to the free shipping offer for other items on the site when you checkout

Customs and Taxes

Items sent to the EU from the UK are treated as imports by the EU, this means they’ll have to pass through customs. If you’d like us to send an order to the EU (including the Republic of Ireland), the addressee for the item(s) will be liable to pay a little extra on receipt to the respective country at the applicable tax rates for their country.

Orders sent to destinations in the UK are charged at the normal taxable rate, this is included in the price of your order.

Delivery Notes

We’re going ‘Greener’; we have now stopped sending paper delivery notes with orders, all order details will be included in the digital order confirmation you receive. We will, however, still add a note if we run out of an item in your order.
