Due to a large flow of orders in the month of December and for this reason, Sabor & Art does not commit to orders placed from the 15th of December to be delivered within the deadlines considered normal.
*** Islands - Azores and Madeira:
In the Autonomous Regions of the Azores and Madeira, the delivery period will be between 6 to 16 working days. Please note that these deadlines are for information purposes only, as there may be irregularities in connections to and between islands, which (if they exist) will be beyond Sabor & Art's compliance with the delivery deadlines for orders. This is especially true for shipments to Ilha das Flores and Corvo, which may be subject to an increase in transit time of around 12 working days.
Shipments to Mainland Spain :
Between 48h to 72h.
Transit times in Europe are generally between 3 to 7 working days and in other countries between 7 to 10 working days, however in other destinations in the world it may be longer.
