Our returns policy is really simple...
When you receive your item, you must check it as soon as possible following receipt and always before use. At Save and Drive, we offer you a 100% guarantee that if you’re in any way dissatisfied with the goods you have ordered, we will exchange them or give you a full refund as long as they are returned with the original packaging intact within 14 days. Unfortunately we cannot, however, offer this guarantee on goods that have been used, unless the product is found to be faulty.
This does not affect your statutory rights.
Your right to change your mind.
We've all done it, ordered something and then realised later that it is no longer needed. You have 14 days to cancel your order under our 14 day return period policy, which starts on the day after you received the item. It's so simple, please follow the steps set out below. All items must be returned unused and in the original packaging as they were in when received by you. Please ensure that when you receive an item that you take reasonable care of it when trying it /inspecting it eg. please ensure that any security seals or tags are still intact.
Wrong item received.
We apologise if you have received the wrong item by mistake. This is not common and we want to resolve this as quickly as possible for you. To receive a refund or a replacement, you must return the item in the same condition you received it and within 14 days from the day on which you received the item.
Damaged or faulty goods.
Please accept our apologies if you have received an item that is damaged or faulty. We understand how frustrating this can be and want to resolve this as quickly as possible for you. In the event of a part delivery or goods being received damaged in transit, Save and Drive must be notified within 7 days after receipt of goods, this may be done via e-mail, fax, or telephone. If you believe that the item is faulty, please contact us. You will need to tell us exactly what the fault is and as soon as possible after discovering the fault and we will advise what to do next.
Our Returns Policy for faulty items upholds your statutory rights.
Item not received.
We apologise if you have not received your item. This is not common and we want to resolve this as quickly as possible for you. To receive a refund or a replacement, you must inform us that you have not received your item within 21 days from the day on which you received an email from us confirming that the item had been despatched.

- Please package the item securely and include inside the package your order number, name and address

Return of replacement goods.
If an item you ordered was found to be faulty and we replaced it, you have the right to cancel your order in respect of the replacement product within 7 working days starting on the day after you received the replacement item and receive a refund.
Cost of returning goods.
Please note that we can only refund the postage costs for returning an item where:
- we sent you the wrong item, or
- the item is damaged or faulty; or
- where you are returning a substitute or replacement item which you do not want to keep.
We will not refund postage for items found to be in good working order. Costs of posting the item back to you will depend on the item and will be communicated to you after the testing process has been completed.
Christmas period returns policy.
We don't want you to worry about anything during the Christmas holiday period, so that you can relax and buy all your gifts before the Christmas rush. We therefore have an extended our returns policy for Christmas - all items purchased after the 31st November in any year can be returned up until the end of January in the year immediately following the previous year.
