We were advised by a poster to check the German Amazon because you could find the same goods cheaper. Now I found this web site that will check prices against Amazon in France, Germany, Italy and Spain and converts them into pounds and compares them to the UK.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Tips how to buy
Translate the page. Most web browsers (incl Chrome, Explorer and Firefox) can translate into English at the click of a button. Voila!
Shipping costs vary. EU sites have similar delivery costs but they aren't included in the comparison.
If you change your mind... You've got 14 days after receipt to send back legally and Amazon's returns policy usually gives 30 days.
If it's faulty... You should be able to get a refund, replacement, repair or reduction in the cost with similar rules to buying in the UK.
Beat exchange rates. Pay in euros using a specialist overseas card like Halifax Clarity and you get the same near perfect exchange rate that banks do.
Use a credit card for £100+ purchases. Then under Section 75 laws the credit card is jointly liable if things go wrong (though not if it's a Marketplace seller as that's 'buying through an agent' which is excluded).
You can't buy some things. Amazon blocks some products, like Kindles, from being bought abroad and shipped to the UK.
Don't forget about European plugs. Adapters cost as little as £1.
Check Amazon Austria and Amazon Netherlands too. They're not included in the Curiua comparison
