Need to check exchange rates when ordering as when they changed and took me marginally over the £18 recently, I had to pay Royal Mail/Customs £11.

You also need to use the official customs exchange rates to calculate if you are over the £18 or not rather than use amazons.

The customs rates are set once a month and probably do not reflect the rest upturn in the pound.

£1 = $1.45

This was my problem, as when I ordered the goods from the US, it was just under £18 but the rate changed by the time it was posted and went through the customs and I ended up being charged £11, the majority of which was the Royal Mail fee for collecting it. Its worth noting that although the duty exemption is calculated based on the price of the goods, if its £18 or more you pay duty on the postage and handling as well.
