Frequently Asked Maps International Questions
The Scratch the World maps are perfect for travellers who want to see the world and tick them off one at a time, and the historical maps like the British Empire ones would be the perfect addition to a historian’s study. For the ultimate gift you can even buy personalised maps, or, if you don’t think their wall maps are big enough, you can grab yourself a roll of world map wallpaper instead. With a range of high end maps to cost effective ones, you could still save with our Maps International discount code.
Is there free delivery available?
For customers in the majority of mainland UK, free delivery is available on almost everything. Whilst delivery times are a bit slower, it’s the best money saving option you could choose. For customers in Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland and Overseas (as well as the UK Highlands and UK Islands), free delivery is only available on smaller-sized rolled maps and not on any larger items. We do occasionally list Maps International free delivery codes on this site, so be sure to check back here to see if you could get unrestricted postage for free.
How long does delivery take?
That’ll mostly come down to what postage you’re getting. Whilst the speed can depend on what finish options you select, there are two services quicker than free delivery. Priority, priced from £3.75, is quicker than the economy service by ‘several days’, and the Next Day option - which starts at £5.95 - will be delivered to you the next working day if you order before 1pm on the previous day. For overseas buyers the costs and speed will depend on which country you’re in, so delivery times are shown in the checkout to tell you how long you would be expected to wait.
Can I get maps for free?
You can. Maps International have a small range of printable maps that are free to download. In their Kids Zone they have a few educational maps which you can view as a PDF and then print off. They have world maps, European maps and UK maps available and they’re a great inexpensive option to use to help with learning and to stick on the wall of your child’s bedroom. Click here to see what’s available.
Do they have a sale section?
They do. Maps International offer savings on a wide variety of their products, meaning there’s a good likelihood you could get your hands on whatever map you’re looking for, for less than full price. However, whilst there are savings to be had, they don’t offer many dramatic discounts, which is why the best place to find big reductions is here with our Maps International discount voucher.
How do I use a Maps International voucher code?
They’re very easy to use. First, decide which one of our codes you want to use. Then, once you’ve decided which one, click the ‘Get Code & Open Site’ button below the specific offer. Once you reveal the code, it is then copied into your clipboard and the Maps International website will pop open. Then just shop like you normally would, and then when you get to the checkout, paste the code into the box where it says ‘Enter Your Discount Code’. Hit the ‘Apply Code’ button and provided the code hasn’t expired or been used by you before, the discount will then be deducted from your order total.

Your Need to Know Guide to Shopping at Maps International
Scratch the World Maps – Maps International have a wide range of scratchable maps. Using a similar technology to scratch cards, you can scratch away countries to mark where you’ve been. It’s the ultimate backpackers’ map, where you can show off how well-travelled you are and how many parts of the world you’ve been too. They come in a wide variety of styles too, including travel editions (with a magnified Europe section) and versions for kids. And it’s not just world maps that are scratchable, there are ones for sports fans (like the 92 Football League grounds) and tipplers (like the Gin Distilleries map).
Historical Maps – Whilst the range of products on offer might suit a keen geographer or traveller the most, there is a strong range of vintage maps available to interest history fans too. As well as British Empire maps, there are a number of prints of historical maps available, stretching all the way back to the 1600s. But if you’re someone who does prefer modern maps with updated countries, but with a vintage feel, Maps International also have you covered.
Map Gifts – There are plenty of great gift ideas on the site. Personalised maps are a great way of showing how much someone means to you, and you can also choose between world, country, city and even postcode maps. Postcode maps are a great birthday gift to remind that special someone where they were born, or a great anniversary present to remember where you first met.
