No, but you can live chat with us, or send us an email – and after that if we think we need to chat to you on the phone we can give you a ring.

During the pandemic we closed our phone lines because our team needed to work at home (and the phones couldn't go with them). What we soon realised is that we were able to help more customers using email, live chat and social media. Problems were solved more efficiently, meaning more people got their questions answered quickly. We decided not to re-open our phone lines because we want to keep helping as many people as we can.

An Interflora delivery pass is your gift giving secret weapon! You buy a pass for the year and it gets you discount (and usually free) delivery. And you usually only need to send two bouquets to start saving money. Find out all the details on our delivery pass page.

Our bouquets arrive ready to wow – and we mean it. They’re never hidden away in packaging, instead they arrive with their bottom half safely tucked in one of our beautiful (and eco-friendly) gift boxes – inside that is a water bubble that keeps them hydrated until they’re ready to be popped in a vase. That leaves the top half, aka all the gorgeous blooms, on show.

You can make requests, but you can’t design your own bouquet from scratch. After you choose the kind of bouquet you’d like, you’ll see a special requests box come up, that’s where you can pop in suggestions to your florist. You might say something like ‘they love purple’, or ‘they’re a big fan of roses’. We can’t guarantee they’ll be able to meet every request, but the florists we work with really do put so much love and care into each bouquet, so they’ll try their best.

Also don’t forget with almost all our bouquets you can choose the colour palette too (we usually do brights, neutrals, pastels, or you can let the florist decide).

You can add your own personal message with every gift you send by using the gift message field on the Delivery Information page.

Your message will be provided on a stylish gift card and will be presented with your gift.

Many of our flowers and gifts have the option of adding a little extra to your order. We have a range of fine chocolates, bears and balloons that complement our hand-tied bouquets. A glass vase can be included with your purchase too. This will ensure your recipient can display their flowers as soon as they are received.

These items are available for deliveries to the UK, Channel Islands and Ireland (except sympathy orders) after you have selected your floral item.

If you’re in the UK or the ROI then yes, we can definitely help link you up with a florist. You can use our find a florist page. Just pop in the post code of the area you’d like to send blooms to or collect your flowers from and you'll see a list of all the florists nearby.

And remember if you get stuck, you can always get in touch with us and we’ll do our best to help.

The best way to see how much delivery will cost is to choose your blooms or gift, pop in the delivery date and address, then we can give you an accurate price. But as a general rule this is how much it costs.

Delivery to UK and ROI

Same day - €13.00

Next day, in the morning - €16.00

Next day or later - €9.50

International delivery

Same day (selected countries), next day, or later - €16.00

If you see different prices to these when you order it might be because it’s an especially busy date. Delivery prices go up because our florists need extra hands to make sure everyone gets their blooms.

If it’s flowers that are being delivered and there’s no one home, the florist will usually leave the blooms with a neighbour or in a safe place. They’ll always leave a card with details about where the bouquet is. If there’s not a good place to leave the bouquet, the florist will take it back to the shop and leave instructions on how to arrange a re-delivery at a better time.

If it’s a plant, hamper, or other kind of gift, being delivered our courier partners take care of it. If there’s no one home they’ll leave a card and a new delivery date, but if that’s still not a good time the recipient can contact the courier service to rearrange it.

Yes it is possible for our florists to make deliveries to hospitals. However we recommend that you check with the hospital before placing your order as some hospitals no longer allow flower deliveries. When placing your order please ensure you include the recipient's surname, full address of the hospital and ward name or number on the delivery information section during the order process.

  • Before you place your order, you might find the tips below useful guidance:
  • Because space and display areas are limited in hospitals and vases not always available, hand-tied bouquets or vase arrangements delivered in water are recommended. Unfortunately, hospitals cannot accept planted gifts due to the soil content.
  • Hospitals do not permit flower deliveries to Intensive Care Units; however some hospitals will place flowers outside the ward for the benefit of visiting families.
  • Orders will be delivered to the hospital reception; the signature of the person receiving the order will be accepted as proof of delivery.

Please note: Any gifts which are delivered by courier cannot be delivered to hospitals.

We'll happily accept orders requiring delivery to a hotel, however, when placing your order please ensure you have included the full address of the hotel, telephone number, the recipients room number (if known).

Yes - Interflora have an extensive network of expert florists in over 140 countries world wide. Simply visit our International Flower Delivery section.

The delivery day of your chosen item is of course dependent on where in the world you are sending it, for example you can get same day delivery in Argentina if you order by 3pm Mondays to Saturdays, but in Japan the time difference means you must order at least two days before.

Please note that in many countries it is customary for the florist to contact the recipient prior to making the delivery. This is why we ask you for the telephone number of your recipient during the order process.

Yes, we will happily accept an order for delivery to a ship.

However, if we don’t have a florist that delivers to your address a ‘Gift Not Available’ message will appear once you’ve entered the delivery address and selected a product.

If you’re sending blooms abroad, you’ll be able to see all of the gift available when you select the delivery country.

If your gift isn’t as it should be, we’ll do everything we can to put things right. All you need to do is get in touch.

Usually you won’t need to worry about substitutions because all the bouquets we deliver in the UK and ROI are made by florists, and they choose the blooms that appear in each bouquet. They’ll choose according to the season, the colour palette you’ve chosen, the occasion, and any special requests. It means your bouquet is a one-off, so it might not look exactly like the pictures on the website, but it’ll still be just as beautiful.

If you have ordered a bouquet that includes specific flowers (say for instance you’re sending a bouquet abroad, or you’ve picked a special limited edition gift) we might need to make swaps occasionally. When your supplier is mother nature, things aren’t always predictable.

If we do need to swap out a bloom, or a plant, or a bit of packaging, we’ll always make sure the replacement is as beautiful and at least the same value. Our florists and suppliers follow these strict rules.

  1. Any substitution will be of superb quality to ensure customer satisfaction.
  2. The colour and shape of the chosen product must take priority and no change in size or shape is permissible.
  3. The value of the replacement flower or plant will be equal to, or greater than, the original variety.
  4. When substitution is made, the utmost care is taken to provide flowers or plants which maintain the overall effect of the gift.
