Closing for Spring Break

Please note:  Expat Essentials is now closed for 2 weeks and will re-open on Tuesday 2nd May.  Orders can still be placed online in the normal way, but will not be despatched until 4th-5th May.

Secure Payments


Our customers' security is very important to us, so Expat Essentials does not receive or hold any credit card details.  All online payments are made through our card services provider; Sagepay or through PayPal. For additional security, we have also installed a Thawte SSL certificate on the website, so that any pages where you enter personal information, such as signing in to your account or entering address details are also totally secure and protected.

Most major credit and debit cards are accepted, including Mastercard, Visa and American Express, (but not Diner's Club) or you can choose to checkout quickly and easily using PayPal if you have a PayPal account set up.
