Placing an order

How do I pay for my order?

You can pay for your order online using a valid credit or debit card. Please enter your card number into the ‘card number’ field of the payment page.

The following cards are accepted: Visa/Delta, Maestro/Switch and MasterCard.

Your credit/debit card will be debited as soon as the payment has been approved by your bank.
Your account will be debited with the reference - VisitBritain Shop

What is my CVC security code?

For Visa/Mastercard, the CVV/CVC is a three-digit security code printed on the back side of the card.

Why does my payment keep getting declined?

There are a few reasons why this may be happening. Firstly, please make sure that the credit card details (such as the expiry date and the CVC security code) are correct and that the billing address is the same one that the card is registered to.

Sometimes credit and debit cards may be declined because they are being used in a different country to the one they are registered in.
If you have access to a different credit or debit card, please try using it.

If your payment is still being declined, please Contact us, giving the date and time you tried to place your order and the amount your order came to, and we will investigate.

Why don't your prices correspond with the current exchange rate to the Pound?

VisitBritain endeavours to keep its prices as competitive as possible and they are regularly adjusted to correspond with exchange rates. However, our prices are not adjusted on a daily basis, so there may be a slight exchange rate variation.

Do you have a High Street shop?

We do not have a High Street shop.

My country is not selected in the drop-down box when I try to pay for my order. Why is this?

Unfortunately we do not deliver to or accept payments from some countries. This could be because we have had numerous problems with the mail going missing to that country before, or because we have experienced a lot of credit card fraud in that country.

How do I find the products I am looking for?

There are two ways to find the products you are looking for. You can either use the search box at the top of the page, or you can select a top navigation item i.e. Travel and Transport and then a sub-category i.e. London Transport. You may also want to look at the sitemap to see our full range of categories.

How will I know my order is placed?

Once you have placed your order and your payment has been accepted, an order confirmation email will be sent to the email address that you provided us with.

How do I see what I've placed in my shopping basket?

To see what is currently in your shopping basket, simply click on your Shopping Basket which is located in the top right hand corner of the screen.
