We have made returns easy and low cost as possible for all UK customers. Copy and paste the URL below to access the Royal Mail returns service that we recommend.

This Royal Mail Tracked 48 returns system has been created to give you a low cost easy return back to us for either exchange or refund. The cost of this service is currently £3.90 for parcels up to a maximum of 2 kilos and by using this service you consent to this charge. The charge will be taken from any refund that is applicable when your goods are returned to us.  
If the parcel is overweight or too bulky and does not meet the criteria, you cannot use this service. You could split the parcel sending back multiple parcels (this would mean multiple charges @£3.90 per parcel) but are of course free to return a parcel back to us via your own method of choosing at your own cost. If the returning parcleis lost, you will have to claim to Royal Mail. The current insurance level is £150 if this value is not high enough due to low for the value of the retuning goods, you need to either choose a different method of return or take the risk.  This scheme is only an option.

All returns are at the buyers cost and risk, The RM scheme above is only a suggestion, if it does not suit your requirments due to weight or insurance value, you are free to choose your own method of return at your own cost.

Any postage added/upgraded on the original order, e.g. First Class/Express/courier or ANY Overseas postage will not be refunded as this is deemed a separate contract under DSR. Distance selling regulations apply to UK customers only. Only basic economy or free postage (which ever is lowest) will be refunded plus the full purchase price of the goods. No postage costs will not be refunded if you are buying multiple items and not all of the goods have been returned.

Things that cannot be returned
Some things cannot be returned due to hygiene and packaging reasons. Ski socks that are packed in a way that makes them un-saleable if the packaging is broken open cannot be returned. Any items that have been customised too cannot be returned.
