Please note - we can't stress this enough......please order with plenty of time prior to your trip. We cannot be responsible for delays with Royal Mail or a courier delivering. For example, Royal Mail state that 1st Class can sometimes take up to 7 days, we have never had it take this long as it's usually 2 working days but if it does arrive later we cannot be held responsible or issue refunds if your package misses you, or if you are not there to receive your parcel when they try to deliver and subsequently you don't have the package in time for your trip. These are exceptionally rare cases and the estimated delivery times in the above table are almost always correct. If your package appears to be missing - firstly please contact your local sorting office as it's very often there after a missed delivery - we cannot do this on your behalf due to Data Protection and we dispatch thousands of orders a week. Please also check with a neighbour, concierge or the reception of the building.

International orders: Brexit & the global pandemic has caused numerous delivery delays across Europe and the ETAs whilst most of the time still accurate are affected by many factors - we cannot guarantee parcels will arrive in the timeframes provided, there may also be duties and local taxes in your country - we do not know what these are at the time of shipment and are calculated when they land and are in your country, they differ country to country. Please be aware you will be responsible for these taxes and duties - we also cannot accept returns for parcels from outside the UK due to these and we cannot refund for courier costs if you miss your delivery and parcels are returned back to us.

We may require your PID/Tax code and will email to request this information, it is purely for the courier to provide to customs & imports in order to release your goods. We may request this information after the order has dispatched and is in the couriers possesion as and when the courier requests the information from us (and therefore cannot request it sent back to us). We of course discard this information after we have provided it to the courier.

Returns

We have a 14-day returns policy from when you receive the item. The only reason for a refund would be if the item goes missing or it is damaged & under rare circumstances, if a mistake has been made we will, of course, first try to rectify the problem. If a return is being made the item (and if relating to our travel packs, the items within the gift pack) must be in its original unopened packaging for us to consider a refund. This is for hygienic reasons. Please note with regards to customer notes - we cannot guarantee that any notes are read or the orders take these into account. We have a very quick turnover of stock and thus if you request an item to be included we can only include if the item is in stock, so I'm afraid we do not offer a bespoke system of packing. We cannot refund for this reason.

Under no circumstances will KeepEmQuiet be liable or issue a refund if the product is not delivered in time for specific travel dates. Please allow ample time for delivery. The time frames quoted on this site are estimates only and can be affected by many factors.  If your item appears to be late, please contact your local sorting office (or check with a neighbour) prior to contacting us because most of the time it is thereafter a missed delivery.

With regards to our Plane Pal product - under no circumstances will KeepEmQuiet be liable or issue a refund if the products use is declined by a third party ie. your chosen airline. It is recommended that you check this prior to purchase. You may not open the plastic wrapping on the Plane Pal if you wish to return it, this is for hygienic purposes and we will not accept returns if the product has been opened in any way - if opened we do not have to accept this back by law. 

We cannot accept returns for items that have been taken out of their original packaging - for example the manufacturer box or packaging they came in, once this is opened it is considered a used product. Manufacturer packaging such as the box, plastic wrapping or bag may not be removed or opened if you would like to make a return. This is for hygiene purposes especially during Covid-19 and by law we do not have to accept a return as the goods cannot be resold. 

 

If you are eligible for a refund, please email us at hello@keepemquiet.com with your full name and order number and a photograph of the query - if we cannot rectify the issue then please post the package via recorded delivery (if it's not sent recorded we can't be responsible for the item being lost in transit). The address for returns is: KeepEmQuiet 4 Blenheim Terrace, London, NW80EB - not the address listed on your dispatch note. Once we receive the package we will determine if you are eligible for a refund, if so the refund will be sent back to your method of payment within 3-5 business days.

Barring faulty products: We do not refund for change of mind for any of our products. We also do not provide refunds if your travel pack looks different from the pictures - as mentioned on the product page, the pictures are illustrative only. We put a great deal of time and effort into your travel packs, every pack is handpicked and packed. All items on the site if being returned are subject to a 15% restocking fee of the total order. We also cannot refund the shipping cost unless it is the fault of Royal Mail or a courier service. If your package goes missing you would receive a full refund, after contacting the local sorting office and/or customs have been exhausted.  Please ensure you enter your address including numbers correctly.

In the extremley rare case that something arrives broken, not fit for purpose we will of course look to rectify the problem, however we do not accept any liability or blame if the customer has not taken due care in testing the product first for dirt or other damages, for example if a product is dirty and is unpackaged from its packaging onto your floor or clothing (or any other item), and causes a stain or other damage we cannot accept liability for this. We take great care in sending out our products and most items come in their original packaging from the manufacturer, in many cases sealed hygienically, so it is the customers responsibility to check for dirt or grime (which can happen rarely, but is not impossible as items are stored in a warehouse). This also relates to items scratching or dirtying surfaces in cars or on other personal items. If damage is made, please take this up with the manufacturer or your own personal insurances. We double check everyhting that leaves us.

We take no responsibility for “returns to sender” for non-collection or incorrect address, if the product is returned to us because it wasn't collected from a sorting office, you would need to pay for postage again to have the item resent.

Cost of re-sending/returning will be the customer's responsibility (unless we have made a mistake), and we will not refund the outgoing postage.

Due to Brexit and the pandmeic we cannot accept customer returns from international orders, courier costs cannot be refunded if the product is sent back to us due to failed delivery attempts.

Coronavirus 2020 Outbreak

Wishing you all health and safety in this testing time. Whilst we realise how frustrating cancelled flights and holidays are, there is a cost to picking and packing your orders. Staff are required, space is leased and overheads are fixed, this virus has sadly affected the whole world and many small business are suffering and will continue to be economically affected for months to come. Therefore we will not be able to refund for items due to flight or holiday cancellations. Our entertainment packs in particular are great for rainy days, off school days and many other times you need to entertain the children, they are a bespoke pack made to order and are not neccesarily only for travel by any means. Our other items on the store also have a pick and pack cost, so are also subject to the same refund policy. In exceptional circumstances only (and on a case by case basis) we would accept a return and refund, however this would be subject to the same refund policy as per the above, i.e a 15% restocking fee applied (to cover the highlighted overheads above) & no refund on outbound postage costs (as these are paid away to the courier company and are not refundable to us) and cost of the return is at the customers expense (because as a small business we cannot afford to lose money on orders due to situations like these which are out of everyone's control). Or alterntaively you can have a full refund to a gift card on our store for another purchase. Please email hello@keepemquiet.com to discuss further.

If we have made a mistake or error in the packing or your order, we would of course discuss this with you immediately and try to rectify.

However, due to the Coronavirus this will mean our warehouse might be closed and staff working from home, therefore no returns can be made in this volatile period, this return and subsequent refund (if deemed in line with the above refunds policy) would be stalled until businesses are back to normal, unfortunately we are in the same situation as everyone else and do not have a timeline on this, so please be patient with us and email us as a reminder in a few months time when hopefully this virus has played it's course to organise your return - however this would have to be agreed with us via email prior to a reminder email being sent after the outbreak has subsided. We will not accept returns that havent already been agreed to, for example if the outbreak has subsided by May and you want to return your items, you would have to have written confirmation from us prior to this. Otherwise our standard 14 working day time line applies. We cannot refund without having the products back in our posession and being physically checked over. During this period of time, please do not order if you plan on returning any of our items and expecting a fast refund

Delivery times might be slightly delayed due to reduced number of staff in our warehouse, so please understand the 'estimated' delivery times at the top of the page really do come in to play.

Regarding Face Masks, we are unable to accept a return for these due to the obvious hygiene reasons. So please enquire first about sizing prior to ordering.

Thank you for your understanding and we hope you and your loved ones, stay safe and healthy.
