International orders and Shipping 

None UK orders generally take upto 28 business days in transit. Please allow additional time for customs processing. Express shipping options are not available to other countries.

Please Note: The recipient of an order may be subject to import duties and taxes, which are levied once a shipment reaches the destination country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by the recipient.

Any item advertised as being "Free Delivery" applies to the UK only. International orders will receive discounted postage on these products if we are unable to give free postage.

Geocache Land are not responsible for any item that is returned as "uncollected" or "unclaimed" from your local post office. Any item received back due to non-collection will be checked and if all items are in the same condition they left Geocache Land a refund will be made. This refund does not include any shipping fees and will be at a rate of 75% of the original sale price plus any additional shipping fees to cover the additional costs involved. e.g. Original sale price - £100 + £11.50 shipping fee = £111.50. Item returned as uncollected to Geocache Land and incurs £20 import tax and £8 handling fee from post office. Refund = 75% of £100= £75 - £28 fees = £47 refund.


Damaged Packages / Missing Items

Unfortunately packages can get damaged in the post and on very rare occasions items can go missing. For this reason we strongly recommend all customers use insured postage.

If you choose an uninsured postal service you do so at your own risk. Geocache Land cannot and will not accept any liability once the item(s) have been posted. No compensation or refund will be made for missing/ damaged items that are posted without insurance.

For insured postal services:

When receiving your package please check carefully for any damage to the package. If it looks like any item may be missing refuse to sign and do not take the package. If there is damage to the packaging but it looks like nothing will be missing, accept the package and please photograph the damage (including address label) before opening. If on opening items are found to be missing or damaged please photograph the contents as found in the package showing the damage.

We never reseal packages before sending them. If your package has been resealed you must refuse to accept it and do not sign for it (unless marked as opened by official customs/ duty agencies).

Items sent by Tracked only service are insured while in transit only. Once the item is marked as delivered Geocache Land have no further responsibility to the customer, except in the case of evidenced damage while in transit.

Items sent Tracked and Signed are insured until the customer signs for the package. Once the item is signed for Geocache Land have no further responsibility to the customer, except in the case of evidenced damage while in transit.

In all cases please contact Geocache Land as soon as possible so we can deal with the problem.
