  • Fill in the details on the back of your Escape Plan order confirmation slip (which will be included with your order) – This will let us know whether you are after a refund or an exchange and a few other details. If you have misplaced your form you can download one here.

Returns under warranty

Should an item you purchase from Escape Plan have a manufacturing fault, defect or a failure, you can return it to us and we will pursue a resolution to this for you with the manufacturer.  Resolution can include both repair, or replacement of the item(s) you have purchased.

A couple of other things worth noting about warranty returns:

We cannot cover a fault or damage to an item that has come from wear and tear or improper use.

Once faulty items are returned to us, all repairs are completed by the manufacturer. Escape Plan has no control over the manufacturer repair periods but we will ensure we do what we can to make this process is as fast as possible for you – and we will keep you informed of progress during the process.

What’s the warranty process?

Package up your item(s) and send them back to Escape plan at: Escape Plan, P.O Box 304011, Hauraki Corner, Auckland 0750, New Zealand.

Once received, we will review the fault and get in touch with you to let you know what action has been taken. For your reference the available actions are:

  • If the product is under warranty, and if possible, the product will be repaired to the standard of the manufacturer. All repairs are carried out by the manufacturer.
  • If your product cannot be repaired then it will be replaced with either the same or a similar item.
  • If no replacement product is available we will exchange it for a product of the same value that you choose.
  • If none of the above are available actions then a full refund will be issued to you.
  • We will also refund you the cost of mailing your faulty item back to us as part of the process.
  • If you would like any further information about the warranty process please email us as: info@escplan.co.nz, quoting your order number, name and a little info about your query.

Shipping Information

Free Express Shipping on all New Zealand orders over $25

We ship for free when you spend more than $25 with us, and if you orders before 3pm on a weekday we'll get out on a courier the same day. We use good old NZ Couriers, so most orders are delivered within 48 hours, excluding weekends and holidays since they too need time to escape. You could calculate how much time and petrol it would take to drive to a mall and buy a similar item. But you might have to park outside in the rain, or run into that odd guy from accounts, or your ex-girlfriends sister.  In the meantime our shipping is still free and you just saved yourself time that’s way better spent planning your next adventure.

Here’s how it all works:

New Zealand Shipping

Express shipping is free for orders with a final price of $25 or over - Nice.

Shipping for orders with a final price under $25 is $5.99 - Almost as nice.

Orders received before 3pm Monday to Friday will be shipped that day, by those good people at NZ Couriers. Most orders will be delivered within 1-2 business days – which will go at least some way to managing any Veruca Salt ‘I want it now’ thing you have happening. We respect that by the way... we do it all the time. Please note we do not deliver on weekends, and deliveries to rural addresses will take longer - usually an additional 5 days.

When we send your order you will receive email confirmation of this and you will be able to track the progress of your package. Please click on the link in the email sent to you to do this.

International shipping

If you are ordering from Escape Plan from beyond the beautiful shores of New Zealand, that’s all good with us. We will ship to many countries, but not all unfortunately.

We have tried to keep this all really simple and easy so if you are ordering from any of the countries listed below then the cost of shipping per order will be $25 for Australia, or $35 for the United States or the United Kingdom.

In some instances there may be customs or duty charges in your country that you will need to pay additionally to your order cost from Escape Plan. Escape Plan has no influence over these charges, nor do we cater for paying for these charges through us. If you would like information about charges in your country please contact your country’s customs office.

Unfortunately if you are wanting to order from a country not on the list below, we won’t be able to take your order. Nice to know you have been here to see us though. One day we may sort ourselves out to ship in your general direction. Till then, enjoy your journeys. Flick us an email at info@escplan.co.nz with any feedback on where we should ship.

Worldwide price match

Selected items on our site are available for our sweet worldwide price match. Check out each product page to see if they are.

If you find one of these same items for sale at a lower price elsewhere, just let us know and we’ll be happy to match the price. We want to make sure you’re getting the best value. To request a price match, please email help@escplan.co.nz, with a link to the item and website you’d like to match. A few terms and conditions though to make sure we’re comparing apples with apples

i. The item must be at full price from and in-stock at the same size and colour. Sorry, we won’t match to run-out sales, promotions or one-off discounts via coupon codes. Acceptance of this criteria is at our sole discretion. Why? Well lots of places offer cheap prices one-off sale items that you can’t return. With us, you’ve got up to 101 days to return, and chances are it’ll be available in something other than XXXS – seems pretty low risk to us.

ii. We can’t price match secondhand or counterfeit product, sorry. That awesome watch on that Ukrainian website is only $1.99, but, well, you get what we mean. Acceptance will be at sole discretion of Escape Plan.

iii. We price match to online stores only. We’d love to do a price match to good old fashioned bricks and mortar stores, but there’s only so far our price matching guys can pedal every day to confirm pricing. But, most bricks and mortar stores have a website, so try finding the item there.

iv. Comparable price must include trackable shipping to New Zealand, and price match is only available for shipping to New Zealand.

v. If you’re comparing to an overseas website (we check out great prices on US websites all the time too!), then we’ll convert from US to NZ dollars at standard credit card foreign exchanges rates published on the BNZ website, plus the standard 2.25% fee you’re charged for foreign currency transactions, and of course any GST that our friends at customs charge.

vi. Price match cannot be used in conjunction with any other promotion, and is subject to Escape Plan stock availability.

Crikey! That’s a lot of words - maybe just drop us a line at help@escplan.co.nz to request a match.
