Subscription details

Subscriptions purchased before the 10th of the month will receive this month's box. Subscriptions purchased after the 10th will receive next month's box. For example, if you purchase a subscription on the 9th August, you will receive the August box. Purchases made on the 11th August would result in receiving the September box.

Subscriptions can be cancelled at any time, for whatever reason. Please be aware that you will still receive the current box for which you have already paid.

All deliveries are posted by standard delivery. The Travelling Reader is responsible for posting your item to you but not for the receipt of your item, although we will do all we can to help you if you do not receive your item as expected. More information is available here.

Our boxes contain beverages, confectionery, and sometimes other edible products. Please be aware that these often contain allergens.
