Frequently Asked Questions
Why take out a subscription?
By buying a subscription you will save money compared with the normal price of the paper.
How does the subscription work?
Vouchers – You will receive your pre-paid vouchers within 10 days, by post. Simply hand the relevant day’s voucher to the retailer as full payment for your Newspaper.
Postal Subscription – You will receive your Newspaper by UK post, please allow sufficient time for delivery. Please note; the minimum term is 3 months.
Home Delivery - Your Newspaper will be delivered direct to your door on the day of publication. Please note, delivery will depend on the service availability to your home address. Prices inclusive of delivery charge.
Where can I purchase the newspaper?
The paper is widely available at most major retailers in the area. If you find your newsagent does not stock the paper, please ask them if they can order it in for you. If you still experience difficulty please call us and we’ll be happy to find a retailer in your area where you can redeem the vouchers.
Do I need to renew my subscription?
If you pay by Direct Debit, you will automatically receive your new vouchers two weeks before your existing vouchers end.
If you pay by credit card, we will notify you before your vouchers expire with details of how to continue your subscription.
How does Direct Debit continuous payment work?
Subscriptions are made on either an annual, bi-annual or quarterly basis by Direct Debit. Your payments are spread accordingly. As this is a continuous payment method you are in complete control of your subscription as well as eliminating the need for renewal reminders.
Is the online payment secure?
Yes. We use SSL encryption software to keep the details of your order and payment information secure.
How do you acknowledge receipt of my order?
If you order online, we will acknowledge your order with a receipt at the end of the transaction and an email sent to the email address supplied. If you order by phone and have given us your email address, we will send you an email confirmation immediately. If you don’t have an email address we will write to you within a week.
When will my first vouchers arrive?
Please allow up to 21 working days for your vouchers to arrive by post. Subsequent vouchers will be delivered before the expiry of the last set of vouchers sent.
What if I move home?
If you are planning to move, please update your details online by or by calling 0333 202 8000.
I have my newspaper delivered by my local newsagent, can I still subscribe?
Yes you can. You will need to pay your weekly delivery charge as normal but just hand the relevant vouchers to your newspaper retailer when you pay the delivery bill.
What do you do with my personal information?
We use the personal information you provide (eg name, address, email address, telephone number) to process your subscription order. When you subscribe we will ask you about receiving further offers from Reach PLC newspapers.
Do you use ‘Cookies’?
From time to time we may store ‘cookies’ (small files transmitted between server software and the browser on your computer) on your computer’s hard drive to make your use of the on-line subscription process easier. The personal information you provide (name, address, email, payment details etc) are stored on our secure server, not in a cookie.
What should I do if I don’t receive my vouchers on time?
If for any reason your vouchers don’t arrive, please call 0333 202 8000. Please remember to notify us if you have changed address.
What if my newspaper doesn’t publish on any given day?
In the very unlikely event that you pay for a copy that isn’t published, simply call the subscription line on 0333 202 8000 and we’ll arrange a refund for that issue at your current subscription rate.
Can I use my voucher to pay for a different newspaper?
No, your voucher can only be used on the day and for the newspaper title printed on it.
What happens if I go on holiday?
Unfortunately we are unable to issue refunds for unused vouchers. Why not give your vouchers to a friend to try the newspaper while you are on holiday.
How do I cancel my subscription?
If you pay by Direct Debit, you need to notify us of your cancellation a minimum of 4 weeks before the end of your current set of vouchers. Once your payment has been authorised we cannot refund any vouchers that are not used.
What happens if my newspaper isn’t delivered?
If your newspaper doesn’t arrive, please call our customer care team on 0333 202 8000 to report it.
