There is actually a small number of select bookshops in Europe selling hidden europe. However, we are a small publisher and prefer to have direct contact with our customers. The overheads imposed by high street retailers would more than double the cost of hidden europe. So we prefer to take your orders personally or via our online shop.
Your first issue will be the one you specified in your order. If this is the current issue, then your first subscription issue is usually dispatched within one or two days after you placed your order. This is also true for gift subscriptions - and indeed the purchase of single copies. Of course, you will receive a confirmation email that includes all details referring to your subscription.
Yes you can. Although hidden europe is usually purchased on a regular subscription basis, we also make provision for those who just want to buy a single copy. You can buy the current issue or a back issue of your choice. Purchasing a single issue of our magazine might take up to two weeks to reach you by post. We will, of course, inform you by email once your order has been shipped. We also sell back issue bundles — often at discounted rates.
We offer payment by credit card (VISA, VISA Debit, MASTERCARD, Laser, AMEX), by international bank transfer (IBAN and BIC) and by direct bank transfer (for Germany and the United Kingdom). We accept payment in pounds Sterling and Euro. Please note that, unfortunately, we cannot accept VISA ELECTRON.
Our trading currencies are pound Sterling and Euros. However, if you pay for hidden europe by credit card (Mastercard, Eurocard or VISA), your credit card company will automatically convert these currencies to US dollars.

Whilst we make every effort to ensure your subscription issue arrives on time, occasionally issues do go missing or may be delayed.

Yes, we have an electronic newsletter, to which you subscribe for free. It is circulated about twice or thrice a month. You can see our e-news archive here.

We will ship to most regular mailing addresses. And that includes PO Box Numbers too. There are just a very limited number of countries where our experience is that postal services are not utterly reliable. If we feel that your order risks non-delivery, we may contact you to discuss alternative delivery methods (e.g. by courier). In such instances, we may ask you to meet the additional costs. In cases of extreme difficulty, we reserve the right to decline to accept all or part of your order. In such cases we would of course give you a refund.
