Default 'alfakherflavours.co.uk' UK Reviews?

Has any UK member had any experience with 'www.alfakherflavours.co.uk'? I would love to hear about them as I am considering an order.

Thanks.

The only issue is customs. If it manages to pass then its undoubtedly great value...have any UK members had any experiences with them?

I don't think you have to pay any customs fees when sending inside of the European Union. Neither do you have to pay VAT again, since the product already has VAT and excise taxes applied in that country.

The product is sent from Dubai. Fees do apply.

There may be some kind of admin fee too, I'm not too sure. I know you are given an allowance of 250g when you travel to the UK from a non-EU country but I doubt that applies to online orders.

I guess smaller quantites would arouse less suspicion, but then the saving decreases due to relatively high shipping fees. Also, if you're especially unlucky you could get caught out by a random check especially from countries from the Middle East etc.

For UK I think its Import duty @ 70+ per KG and then VAT @ 20% and finally parcel force will charge their own fees for handling the paper work.

Fun times eh?

With a minimum order of 5kg's, getting stopped by customs would take the cost from 140 to around 600ish...just dont think its worth the risk, even if it is unlikely.

Be careful guys, the original site is www.alfakherflavours.com and they are legit. They have great service and sent to us within 2 days and genuine al fakher tobacco.

The one that hp123 is referring to at the top of this thread is a different one and they are selling fake al fakher. Be careful and do not order fro www.alfakherflavours.co.uk

They just have a UK domain name with the same name but its not the same company and I have suffered because they do not accept credit card they just accept bank transfer and conned me into paying!

The only place to trust is www.alfakherflavours.com (note its .com not .co.uk)

hi, you seem to claim that alfakherflavours.co.uk sell fakes but in fact you are incorrect... they are one of the leading shisha compaines worldwide and i and many other have delt with them alot in the past. i no alot of shisha cafe owners who buy directly from this site as they are the only one who helps out with everything and the only legitamate company!

they have a sucess rate of of 98-99% and uk guys always get it.

www.alfakherflavours.co.uk is legit and recommend to everythone they now even so retial orders with free shipping!

there is no other website out there who can provide a better service than these guys well thats my view.. but you guys can trust it!

Ordered starbuzz from them, 2x 250 grams. They gave me a phone call because the flavours I wanted were out of stock, I mailed them my new flavours and they immediately replaced my old flavours with the new ones, and it was shipped here 2 days later.

I had no credit card, so I mailed them and like 30 mins later I got a paypal payment option.

Really good service, but as it's shipped from Dubai, don't order too much if you don't want to risk paying tax

http://www.alfakherflavours.com/ is cheaper, and more reliable and better in every single way

I bought 1kg AF Vanilla and 1kg AF Mint off this site. postage was 20. Flavours 30 each. the order total came to 80. 40 per kg. thats a very good price in the uk today
