I paid VAT and Royal Mail's customs clearance fee for mine.

You can also get an Arduino Due (or a clone), with a shield on top, and it will run the G2 (aka TinyG2) firmware. G2 is, in some ways, better than the original TinyG firmware. The only downside is that it's still in development, and not feature-complete yet. The gShield is known to work in this configuration, and I'm certain my GAUPS will work too. The trouble with separates, though, compared to a single board, is that they tend to cost more -- so there may not be any savings compared to buying a TinyG and paying the VAT and everything. But if you already have some of the parts (a Due, or maybe some Pololu drivers), this may work for you.

Warning: if you go down the Arduino Due + shield route, and install limit switches with pull-up resistors, make sure you connect the pull-ups to 3.3 V, not 5 V, or you'll damage the Due.
