Exchange Rates Arround the World
Making sence of the 'ups and downs'
Our flower arranging books, along with their postage, were priced on the international market based on the exchange rates at the time they were set. If the exchange rates change dramatically making it necessary for us to adjust our international prices - we reserve the right to alter the price as required. However in such circumstances we will offer a full refund for orders already placed (where we determine that we can no longer supply at the original price )- or a partial refund if the exchange rate change means that the book and postage prices have actually fallen.
