If I decide not to travel due to coronavirus can I cancel for a full refund?

Customers with 'Cancellation & Change Cover' can cancel their order at any time prior to collection for a refund of transit costs under our normal terms of cancellation cover. If you are placing an order today we recommend selecting 'Cancellation & Change Cover'.

For orders placed before 12th March 2020, if you choose to cancel an order before collection and you do not have cancellation & change cover, we will credit your Send My Bag account with 100% of the order value allowing you re-book at no extra cost at a later date. Customers with cancellation cover are also free to choose this option as an alternative to a refund.
