1. Why take out a subscription?
With a subscription you can look forward to receiving your favourite magazine through your door every month, saving you the time and trouble of going to the shops to buy a copy. If you take advantage of one of our special discount offers a subscription will also save you money compared to the normal magazine cover price. Don’t forget subscriptions also make a great gift (see Gift subscriptions).

2. How can I order a subscription online?
Choose your magazine(s) from the magazine home page. Click in the button next to the appropriate subscription offer and click 'Add to basket'. You will then be able to view your ‘Shopping Basket’. If you would like to order any further magazine subscriptions please click ‘Continue shopping’. Once you have finished shopping simply click ‘Secure Checkout’, where you will be asked to fill out your delivery details and method of payment.

3. How will my subscription be confirmed?
You will receive an email confirmation of your order within 24 hours.

4. When will the first issue of my subscription be dispatched?
After your order has been processed, your confirmation letter will be sent and this will include details about when your first magazine will be sent to you. The next issue to be dispatched is displayed on the individual magazine page, and is usually between 4-6 weeks.

5. Do I have to sign for my magazine each time it is delivered?
No, your magazine will be sent through the normal post.

6. How do I renew my subscription?

10. What is included in the price?

If you pay for your subscription using any non-sterling currency the price you pay will be dependant on the exchange rate of your credit card company and may fluctuate.

11. Direct Debit
UK customers have the option to subscribe by direct debit. Depending on the magazine, your payments will be spread into easy, manageable 3, 6 or 12 monthly payments. As direct debit is a continuous payment method you are in complete control of your subscription as well as eliminating the need for renewal notices.

These will be displayed in the price summary once you have selected the country to which you want the magazines delivered. The prices displayed include delivery costs and taxes (where applicable).
