What if my magazine issue doesn’t arrive?

Although we will do our utmost to ensure that your magazine is delivered around the same time it is available in the shops, on some occasions it is possible it may be unavoidably delayed. We therefore ask that you please allow an extra 3 days for delivery before contacting us.

If after 3 days you have yet to receive your issue, call us and we will be happy to help.
