I have filled out a Contact Us form, when should I expect a response?

Our Customer Service team endeavour to respond and resolve to all queries within 24 hours or less depending on the time your query was logged. Due to the volume of queries during the Christmas Season, response times may be slightly longer.

Please note, repeatedly submitting your query via the same ticket number will push your query back the queue and will cause delays in us getting back to you.

I have filled out a Contact Us form, will I receive an email to confirm it has been received?

Yes, once you submit your query, you will instantly receive an automated email confirming that your query has been received. This email will include your details and the query submitted. If you do not receive this email, please check your spam / junk mail.

If you still cannot find this email, the most common reason for this occurring is the incorrect email address was entered when filling out the Contact Us form. We would recommend submitting the query again and ensuring your email address is correct.
