The processing of your payment and acknowledgment of your order (including sending you an email confirming your order is being processed) does not constitute legal acceptance of your order.

Indicative weights are given for all products, these are not guaranteed, after all we all make mistakes, however if you dispute the weights you may return the product to us for a full refund (see conditions in Returns Policy section). Colours are reproduced as accurately as our electronic processes will allow, however, again, we cannot guarantee their accuracy as they can be affected by your computer and browser setup.

Currency Conversion

By choosing another currency from the drop down menu prices are converted to other currencies using real time data feed. These prices give a good indication of what you will be charged - however the final charge made may differ slightly from that shown because the actual exchange rate will be determined by your bank or by PayPal, whichever payment method you choose.


All website content is either the property of World Backpacker or its suppliers. Permission is given to all customers of the website to electronically copy and print sections of this website for personal use only. Any other use requires the written permission of World Backpacker.

Stock Policy

We aim to hold stocks of all items that we display on the website, however in some cases stock may not be available from our suppliers. When this applies the website will not allow an order to be placed or paid for, we won't accept an order that we can't fulfill.

If a product is showing 'out of stock' but you select it anyway the 'Add to Basket' button changes to 'Keep Me Updated'. If you click this button and complete the next form you will automatically be emailed when that product comes back into stock. Neat. It also tells us that you have logged it so that we can try and get the product faster. Occasionally, due to human error, our stock levels may not be correct - if we don't have an item that you have ordered we will contact you immediately the error comes to light.
