How does our

subscription service work?

It's as easy as 1, 2, 3...

The Travelling Reader has a wide selection of monthly and quarterly boxes from which to choose. Simply choose the box you want and hit the subscribe button, make your payment, and wait for the box to arrive at the scheduled time. We take the same payment each month and your next boxes will arrive on a monthly basis until the time you wish to pause your subscription or cancel.

**We also offer one-time purchases for those who do not want to commit to a monthly subscription.**

Once the postman has delivered your much awaited Travelling Reader box, sit back, make yourself comfortable and enjoy all the great items in the box - sure in the knowledge we have curated the best British fiction box especially for you. 

We are positive that you will enjoy all the fantastic items within your Travelling Reader box! Our monthly subscriptions are a fantastic way to discover British fiction, British authors and British products.
