All prices are in UK pounds sterling. Members' discount is available to Full Personal, Group and Concessionary members only. If you're an Entry Level Member and wish to upgrade to access GA member discount, give us a call on 0114 296 0088.

Books are zero rated for VAT purposes. Please note however that some items that we sell are subject to VAT, e.g. multimedia resources and digital downloads, and where this is the case the VAT element will be separately itemised on your invoice. VAT will also be charged on these items when ordered by customers in the EU, unless a valid VAT registration number is quoted on the order. VAT is not usually charged on other (non-EU) overseas orders, unless the order is placed and paid for via the online shop.

Your order will normally be despatched within 14 working days. Free delivery is available to UK mainland and Northern Ireland addresses. For overseas orders the flat rate delivery charges for up to 10 items are:

  • Channel Islands, Eire and Europe: £20.00
  • Rest of World (surface mail): £30.00

For larger orders or special delivery methods we will be happy to quote based on weight and destination.

In case of any difficulty, please email the GA, fax: 0114 296 7176 or telephone: 0114 296 0088 giving all the order details and your order number.

Refund and returns policy

For all online transactions with the Geographical Association customers have the right to cancel their order within 14 days of the date of the contract or the receipt of the goods (whichever is the longer). In the event of an order cancellation customers may request to have their payment refunded in full. 

If the order cancellation involves the return of goods already supplied to a customer, then the goods in question will need to be returned to the Geographical Association (GA) at 160 Solly Street, Sheffield, S1 4BF. Goods should be returned to the GA in their original (‘mint’) condition and within 30 days of their original receipt. The GA will then, upon request, issue you either with a credit note or a refund to the equivalent value of your original order. If sending goods back to the GA please state your reason for their return and please also ensure that any packaging or seals remain unbroken. Customers will be responsible for the cost of returning goods for refund or exchange except in cases where faulty, damaged or wrongly specified goods have been supplied by ourselves, in which case the GA will supply you with a postage pre-paid label for the return of the goods.

The Geographical Association is an independent registered charity (Charity No: 1135148 Company No: 07139068) and its work is governed by its Memorandum and Articles of Association and supporting By-Laws.
