Basic, Premium and Digital subscriptions

A Basic subscription consists of the paper copy of the newspaper and magazine, with online access to the previous 14 days’ worth of articles. A Premium subscription is an upgrade from the Basic, which includes the archived material and gives subscribers access to any previous content since the launch of TradeWinds in 1990. A Digital subscription gives online only access to the same.

Corporate agreements

TradeWinds may have an agreement with some corporations. In such cases the terms and conditions of the corporate agreement will override the general terms and conditions.


For TradeWinds Basic and Premium subscriptions the paper products are distributed via first class mail, and subject to deadlines stated by the individual mail service companies globally. We offer hand delivery in some central shipping locations. If you do not receive your newspaper copy, please contact your local sales office as soon as possible. Non-delivery complaints will not qualify for a refund unless received without undue delay.

New subscriptions and changes to distribution details can be received up until Wednesday morning at 10am GMT for that week’s Friday issue. TradeWinds is printed in the UK, and distribution is dependent on your location.


All subscriptions are renewed unless notice is given. Cancellation is always required in writing either by letter or email. If a cancellation is received after the renewal date, a balance invoice will be payable for the period used. We reserve the right to terminate the subscription at any time due to lack of payment.
