If for any reason we do not deliver the standard of service you expect, or if we have made a mistake, please tell us. We will work hard to investigate the situation and set about putting it right as quickly as possible.

Please note that delivery of the first printed issue can take up to 10-12 weeks from the order date, we understand that this can seem like a long time to wait but this is due to the international nature of our business.

Please also note that the subscription term starts with the first issue subscribers receive and not from the month in which the order was placed.
