New for Old Scheme

If you have an old edition of a guidebook you can swap it for a brand new edition of the same book for half price. We have changed the scheme to make it easier for people to use. You now need to purchase the book first and apply for a refund by sending us proof of your qualifying book. This saves postage and means you can keep your old guidebook with scribbles and notes in the margins! To participate in the scheme please follow the instructions below.

To get the new book:

  • Purchase the book you would like to receive
    • Order as normal, using our website
    • Make a note of the order number

Using the 'old' book:

  • Find the mostly blank page at the beginning of the book where it shows the title of the book
  • Write the following under the title "New for Old Scheme":
    • the date
    • the ISBN of the book
    • The edition of the book
  • Please write this in pen.
  • Take a photo of this and email the image to us, quoting your order number

As soon as we receive this we will issue a 50% refund for the relevant book.

Please note:

  • Any charges for postage will not be discounted
  • Please ensure your book is eligible before purchasing (it must be a new edition of the same book, not a reprint).
