Digital-Only Subscriptions
If you are a subscriber to our Digital package, and your subscription doesn’t include newspaper deliveries, your subscription will start immediately upon placing your order. After this point, you may notify us of your intention to cancel at any time, but the cancellation will only take effect at the end of your current subscription period. You are not entitled to a refund if you change your mind after your subscription has started. You will continue to have the same access and benefits of your product for the remainder of your current billing period.

Bundled Subscriptions
If you are a subscriber to our Weekend Bundle, Complete Bundle, or if your subscription includes newspaper deliveries (with or without digital access), then you have the right to cancel your subscription within a 14 day period from the day on which you receive your first newspaper delivery - without giving any reason. If you cancel your subscription within this period, we will refund all payments received from you, less a prorated amount for any newspapers you received before cancelling. After this 14 day period has expired, you may cancel your subscription at any time by contacting our Customer Care team by email: or phone: +353 21 2063300.

Effects of cancellation
If you are entitled to a refund, we will make the reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction.

My payment hasn’t been authorised. Why is this?

When paying by credit card, we check with our payment processor that the card number, CVV number (on the back of your card), name and address match the details that your card issuing bank has. On some occasions we are told that the card details are not correct or the card is not valid, which will result in a failed payment authorisation. If this happens, firstly please check that you have entered your card details correctly.

If the problem persists, you will need to contact your bank for an explanation as to why your card is not being authorised.

I’ve received an email to tell me my payment has been declined. What should I do?

It’s likely that we’ve tried to renew your subscription, but we’ve been unable to take the payment using the details we have on file. It could be that the expiry date on your card has expired.

To check and/or update your payment details, sign into your MyAccount portal and select the ‘My Account’ tab. You will be able to edit your payment details by choosing the ‘Update my payment details’ option.

Once you have updated your details, we will try to process the payment for your subscription again.

How do I pause my newspaper delivery?

You can temporarily pause your newspaper delivery as many times as you like. The maximum duration of a pause is 120 days.

Please visit MyAccount to submit your request to pause your delivery. You will need your email address and password to log into your account. Once you have paused a delivery, the amount will be credited from your renewal monthly/annual payment.

Please note: We need a minimum of two working days to pause a delivery due to our printing schedules. For example: to pause your delivery on a Monday, this would have to be done before 11am the previous Friday.
