What’s the cheapest way to send flowers abroad?

When sending flowers abroad you need to check a few things; the price of the bouquet, the price of extras (greetings cards etc) and delivery charges.

We keep charges down for our customers by making sure we offer a great selection of flowers at a reasonable price, free gift messages on an attractive card and a standard £12 international delivery charge - including next day delivery.

Plus, if you know you’re going to be sending more than one bunch of flowers over the next year you can save even more by signing up for an Interflora delivery pass where you can get unlimited delivery for a whole year.
