    Question Will Amazon UK deliver to Tenerife?

    I have done a search but cannot find the information I am looking for! Does anyone order regularly from Amazon.co.uk? I want to order an electrical household item weighing about 3 kilos to be sent here but am worried in case I won't receive it! I have looked on their website but it says nothing about shipping to the Canary Islands just Spain! Am I taking a risk ordering and omitting "Tenerife" or "Canary Islands" in the address? I looked on the Spanish Amazon but they don't have the item I want! any feedback appreciated please a.s.a.p.

    I often order from Amazon UK and have never had to pay duty either on things. They are delivered to the door as well.
    However my things are usually clothes or books, so haven't ordered anything electrical.

    Fill out your online order and after giving all your details, credit card etc. you will get a notice from them on the last page telling you in the case they won't ship that item to Canaries. A shame they won't say that earlier, but they will let you know on the last page.

    almost anythig from ''Amazon'' will be sent here. If it comes from a ''market place trader'' who use Amazon as a selling tool it may not. The VAT will also be taken off at the checkout stage and items over 25 pound will 99% of the time have free delivery.

    Re: Will Amazon UK deliver to Tenerife

    Thanks for the speedy replies! I just didn't want my item stuck somewhere or have to go to Santa Cruz to collect etc... As long as it is hassle free I'll give it a try! I don't mind if I have to pay some duty on it this end as it is something I cannot find here! The good thing about this item (hand held mains vacuum cleaner) is that it says on Amazon that it is eligible for Super Saver free to delivery to Europe! Fingers crossed!!!

    Yes it was almost delivered to home, it was held at my local post office ( los Abrigos)and i paid ( the duty ) and collected my item from there. ps i have had stuff through that has not been intercepted, so is a bit hit and miss with the extra duty, i would suggest have money aside just in case customs do stop it

    This is a very good point

    Amazon is 2 distinct operations :

    1 / Amazon 'market goods' ( like eBay third party sellers) .


    2 / Amazon (stocked and despatch by the Amazon company).

    I have just looked on Amazon again and it looks like I might be in luck! the item I want to order is sold and dispatched by Amazon.co.uk! and is eligible for Super Saver free postage in Europe as it is over £25!

    Thanks to everyone! Order processed and is being sent from Amazon.EU. no delivery charges nd the VAT has been deducted! without the feedback from you guys I'm not so sure I would have risked ordering! Thanks!!!

    I also use Amazon UK a lot and have had no trouble but I have not ordered any electrical goods other than a wireless router.
    I always leave out the Canaries on the address and just put Tenerife Spain, A friend of mine had something go to the Cayman Isles instead of here.?
