Shipping  &  Insurance 


Shipping & Insurance

The shipping cost for the Vortex Pod Racer is fixed at 1,700USD by sea around the world.

The shipping charge includes transport from the factory, Chinese export customs charges, documentation fees and sea freight, with transit insurance, to the nearest major international port.

Customs Clearance, Local Taxes, Import Fees & Duties

The shipping cost does not include local taxes, customs clearance charges, import fees and duties, which may vary from country to country. These are calculated by local authorities and collected from you by the local customs agent. The Vortex team will support with documentation and communicate with local forwarder if required.

Vortex Products Shipped by Weight

When ordering Vortex products separately to your Vortex Pod Racer, the cost for shipment will be calculated according to the total weight, in 500g increments.

Transportation time

  • Asia – approx. 3 weeks
  • America/Europe – approx. 5 weeks
  • Oceania – approx. 3 weeks


Transit Insurance is included within the shipping cost. This cover is inclusive of transport from the factory until it leaves our freight forwarder’s control. This means that the moment you, your customs agent or your local transport company takes possession, the insurance provided by our freight forwarder lapses.
We strongly recommend that you arrange appropriate levels of insurance for your Vortex Pod Racer effective from when it leaves our forwarders control.
