We do not offer a return, exchange or refund for products that are:
Damaged by the Customer: If the product becomes damaged due to mishandling, improper use, or negligence on the part of the customer, refunds may not be provided. It is important to handle and use products according to the provided instructions to avoid damage.
Purchased from a Source Other than Travel Dude’s Website or Amazon Page: We cannot provide refunds for products that were not purchased directly from our own website (www.travel-dude.com) or from our Amazon store. If you obtained the product from a different retailer or source, their return and refund policies would apply. Please reach out to the respective seller or retailer to inquire about their refund process.
Digital Downloads: Once a digital product, such as a digital gift card, has been accessed or downloaded, refunds are not provided. However, if you encounter technical issues or problems with the digital product, please contact our customer support for assistance.
Final Sale or Clearance Items: Products marked as final sale or clearance are often heavily discounted and sold as-is. These items are typically non-refundable, and returns or exchanges may not be accepted. Please consider this before purchasing final sale or clearance items.
Returns or exchanges must be filed within 30 days of receiving an item. Those outside the 30-day window will not be eligible for a return, exchange or refund.
