Description

Descent subscription to Europe

Use this page for one-year, airmail subscriptions to Europe (all countries within the EU plus any country outside the EU but defined as within Europe, such as Norway and Switzerland). Please read the notes below

Descent subscriptions may be taken out for one year at a time. Six issues are produced per year with varying pagination, either 40 pages (the standard) or 48 pages (our bonus page editions). Publication is normally on the first Saturday of alternate months: February, April, June, August, October and December.

You may add a note concerning your subscription during checkout, for example if you wish to start with a different issue to those listed in the available options or if you would like the first issue of a gift subscription sent to you so that you can hand it over in person. These and other Frequently Asked Questions about subscriptions are covered in our FAQ list, if you require further information.

If you require more than one subscription, please order these separately to avoid potential confusion in supplying to multiple addresses. There is no problem with ordering goods sent to the same address at the same time as a subscription. If you are giving a present, you might wish to print a 'you have a present' gift card from a file we provide for the purpose (see the Gifts tab above).

NOTE: If you increase the number of subscriptions to two or more (using 'Quantity'), the software will not allow your order to be placed. Reduce the number ordered to one.

If you are still unsure about taking out a subscription, or are new to Descent, take a look at what our readers think of the magazine.

PLEASE READ THESE NOTES ABOUT YOUR SUBSCRIPTION

Postage costs are included in the subscription price. However, while VAT is not charged on UK publications, it is due on all EU deliveries. Subscription copies to the EU are posted without tax paid: you are responsible for VAT and any other charges on delivery. We are unable to cover any such charges levied by your country. Neither are we able to refund subscribers who refuse delivery or do not pay the taxes due.

With regret, given the volatility of taxation and despatch difficulties (and because Royal Mail has raised the price of economy mail so that it is now more expensive than using airmail), we regret that we can no longer offer two-year or economy mail subscriptions. All subscriptions are for one year airmail.

All international mail is now being despatched in paper wrapping using Royal Mail customs and address labels mandated by them. We also regret this means we can no longer indicate the last issue of your subscription on the mailing sheet or supply a reminder to renew with the final edition. Please track your own subscription ending. When your subscription starts, we will send an e-mail indicating the final issue number for reference. This may also be found in your account (look for your order to find it).

All international addresses have been split into new fields in the database, to meet Royal Mail requirements. We are aware that previous formats, which fully correctly matched the delivery country requirements for layout, are now being printed incorrectly by Royal Mail. While we can do nothing about this, please check your address when your issue is received and let us know if any part is missing altogether or has been cut off.

FOR SUBSCRIPTIONS TO NORWAY AND SWITZERLAND

Please use this page for your subscription or renewal: the prices here cover any country within Europe, as defined by Royal Mail.

Descent is printed to the highest quality in the UK, just as it always has been

Giving a gift

If this subscription is a gift for a birthday or Christmas (or just because you feel like it), you won't have a physical copy of Descent to hand over. Instead, you might wish to print off a 'you have a gift subscription' file for one or two years subs, linked below. Clicking the link will open a large file; right click to save it to your own computer, then print it off. This will produce an A5 colour print.

Non-UK orders


If stock is available for all post destinations, selecting any set of options will allow you to place your order immediately.

If stock is limited, for example with a single copy of a second-hand book, it will be assigned to UK stock. If you require posting to an address outside the UK, selecting your options may not allow an order to be placed, even though stock is available. If this is the case, please contact us to enable the options you require.

Please see our FAQs relating to deliveries, and the Delivery page linked from the bottom of each page, before placing your order if time is an important element for your order.

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR ALL DESCENT SUBSCRIBERS OUTSIDE THE UK

We regret that due to the volatility of Royal Mail postage charges, we have been forced to remove the option for two-year subscriptions. We have also been forced to remove the option for economy mail to the EU, given indications that Royal Mail intends to remove this service.

All international mail is now being despatched in paper wrapping using Royal Mail customs and address labels mandated by them. We also regret this means we can no longer indicate the last issue of your subscription on the mailing sheet or supply a reminder to renew with the final edition. Please track your own subscription ending or check with us at any time. Subscriptions begun since September 2021 have a comment added in your account (under the tab for the order) which records the final issue to be supplied.

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR EU CUSTOMERS

On 1 July 2021 the EU removed all exemptions for tax and customs duty on low value items posted from the UK to the EU, meaning that although VAT is 0% on books and magazines in the UK, it is charged within the EU and the VAT (potentially plus a handling fee) now apply to all orders to the EU.

Ideally, the VAT should be paid at the point of posting, but doing so requires registration with an agent to handle the payments, and this is incredibly expensive and not financially viable. To be clear, all small publishers in the UK are in the same position and we are unable to post any items to the EU with VAT or other duties paid.

Ordering any item from Wild Places, including a Descent subscription, requires that you accept responsibility of paying the VAT and any other local charges on delivery.

To be clear: Wild Places will NOT cover any charges levied by your country; it is your responsibility to accept these when placing an order.

We apologise for the situation, but it is outside our control. We will maintain a link from the left-hand column on the home page with the latest updates. If you are an existing subscriber to Descent and have not replied yet to our enquiries concerning your deliveries, please make contact.

NOTE: Subscribers in Norway or Switzerland (which are outside the EU) should place your order on the Subscription International page or contact us first.
