THEN, to have you smuggling as quick as possible, as soon as you’ve sent the items(s) back to us simply jump online and purchase the size or style that you’d like instead.

By the time you receive your replacement Smugglers, your original order will have been refunded (provided we’ve received the returned pairs by then). Budgy Smuggler is committed to supplying top quality gear. That's why we will replace/refund any purchase if you are not 100% satisfied. 


 How long do I have to return my Smugglers?

Within 90 days of receiving them. Although if you've bought them for a gift, we won't be complete tight arses... Just let us know the situation and they should be okay to exchange outside of this period.


How do I return an item?

Simply send the item back in the original condition with your order number. Please note: we will need the original order number or name of person who placed the order, preferably both, to process the refund.


Where do I send my return(s)/exchange(s)?

The item(s) must be unworn, in its original packaging with swing tag attached and not damaged in any way. We cannot exchange/refund items that have been worn or damaged. For womens pieces, the hygiene label must still be on.


What happens next?

We’ll receive your parcel at Budgy HQ and process a full refund inclusive of the original shipping costs. You will receive an email when your refund has been processed. Funds will be returned to the same account that made the initial payment.


But I just want to exchange them for a different size/style! 

No problemo! We've found the quickest & easiest way to have you smuggling, still send them back to us and simply reorder online the correct style or size you’re after. Your original shipping cost will be refunded so you won’t have to pay for postage twice. This way instead of waiting 1 – 2 weeks you can be smuggling in 1 – 2 days.


Who pays for the return/exchange?

If you received the correct item and it is not faulty, you pay for the postage back to us.

What if I received the wrong item / a faulty item?

Please email us at budgy@budgysmuggler.com.au and we will send you out a fresh pair.  We'll also ask that you return the pair using the return portal. 


Is the Shipping Cost Refunded? 

Yep! The initial shipping cost will be refunded.
