Default Ridiculous shipping fees!!

Hey guys at hookahpro, i desperatly need your help. Right my problem is that because i live in cyprus, for me to order any shisha from the US it costs a ridiculous amount of money, for example, for like 3 250g tubs of nakhla mizo..id have to pay like 30 euros shipping fee. Does ANYONE know how i can avoid these ridiculous charges in any way because i really want some JM's ( any flavor) but is impossible to find where i live.

Thanks in advance for any help guys =]. Terry

Hey Terry, those fees do exist. the best way to get products to cyprus from the us is through usps and it depends on weight. you can go to usps.com to check prices.
on another note, not that they have jm's but taking a 25 minute plane trip to beirut would be great for you. you can get tons of shisha and supplies and with what you'd pay in shipping you would pay in a plane ticket. it's a lot more tourist friendly than it sounds and if you ever need info i can help.

Thanks for the help John. Is it worth going to cairo instead sir as plane tickets have a 30 euros difference? I mean i really want some JM's :P but if cairo or beirut have tons on al fakher and nakhla i think id survive without Jm's :P
Thanks =] Terry

REALLY? theres a shop in nicosia that sells all of them? Can you please explain to me where the shop is as i think you may have saved me. Here in Larnaca theres only 1 good shop and all i can buy is nakhla and some sinbad( which i think is vile). Nakhla mizo i can get in larnaca..i need al fakher and others like JM's or starbuzz.

p.s. An protimas na m e3igisis sta ellinika, do so.

beirut and cairo should have the same shisha selection, but if you want km's go to cairo, if you want all night partying go to beirut;P

LOL

I'm on a island, I guess we're pretty lucky here but when it comes to shipping, we get the short end of the stick.
