European Customers

Many carp anglers across Europe have been astounded by the quality, ‘catchability’ and presentation of the Essential Baits range compared to other baits they have used in the past. We have received reports of some unbelievable captures of big carp from difficult waters due to the fact that Essential Baits offer a much higher level of quality than they have ever seen before.

Most UK anglers now accept that Essential Baits are the best quality food baits available, but now anglers throughout Europe are slowly beginning to realise that they can use a much higher quality bait to improve their catch rates.

Don't forget we offer good discounts on bulk orders, which will help offset the cost of shipping. For example a customer in Holland can purchase 25kg of boilies delivered to their door for about £9.00 per kilo delivered! Please see table below for shipping costs and if your country is not listed please contact us for a quote.

For further information you can email essential@baits.freeserve.co.uk
 

Delivery destination up to 29kg
Belgium, France, Luxembourg, Netherlands and Germany £15.00
Czech Republic, Denmark, Italy, Spain, Slovakia and Austria £20.00
Hungary, Poland, Sweden, Portugal and Slovenia £25.00

Note: Each additional box is the same price, for example, if you wanted two boxes sent to Germany (up to 58kg) this would be £30.00 shipping costs.


Unfortunately we are unable to send our freezer bait range to non UK destinations, however, many overseas customers use our ESL (extended shelf life) boilies with fantastic results. These can be put into your freezer on arrival and treated in exactly the same way as our freezer bait range.

For smaller orders such as flavours, additives, liquids etc, please contact the Tackle Box in Kent at  www.tacklebox.co.uk who offer very competitive postal rates to Europe for smaller items.

Something for the weekend sir!

I'm sure most of us would like to think that we're a little more organised than to get caught out with no bait for the weekend, but in truth we've probably all made the mistake of running out of bait at one time or another! Many customers have contacted us over the years to tell us how convenient these weekend session packs are and how they've 'saved' their trip when they've run out of bait.

They really are perfect for a one off weekend session or to keep in the boot of your car or even your garage. We've even had customers that have taken them abroad on their family holidays with a rod and reel chucked in for good measure just in case they stumble across a hidden gem! Perfect for a weekend session or as a 'back up' on those red letter sessions!
