    Send Sofnolime to Lanzarote?

    Hi All,
    I am going on holiday to Lanzarote and i am thinking of sending a tub of lime over before I go, Has anyone else done this? Will I get charged import charges? Any idea of I can get away with not paying cos its for person use?

    Thanks
    Doug

    Hallo,
    I have no experience in shipping goods to Lanzerote but isn't Lanzarote part of the EU, same like France? As far as I know there is no import duty when shipping goods within the EU.

    Lanzarote is in the EU, but not for Import tax, its an odd Island.

    you try to send a tub of lime from france to lanzarote? so you paid taxes already in france right? and there is no bordercontrol between france and spain so guess.....

    how much you have to pay for shipping, how much for the sorb?

    because

    it would be easier to talk to the guys at rubicondiving lanzarote and ask them (probably you did already and thats why you are asking)

    or if you have a postal adress there order a 20kg keg from casco antiguo........ (shipping to islands is 60€ but lime just 90€ because you don't pay tax).

    or you could pick it up at casco antiguo (there are a lot of shops. just make sure they have it in stock in the shop you want to buy it from) and bring it like check in baggage...... not sure if this is really a option for you. and of course check it with the airline first.......

    I've never seen a customs check when traveling to a canary island.
    Maybe the shops argument you checked with is customs duty for their island-price for sorb.
