Is it safe to shop online at www.gltc.co.uk
Yes. We use the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption method; your details are encrypted before the information transfers from your computer to our system. You know when a page is secure because a padlock symbol shows at the bottom of the browser (or if the address of the web page starts with https). This method is the recognised standard for secure transactions. If you have any questions about security, please call Customer Services on 0344 848 6000.
when do I have to log in?
You'll have to log in when submitting payment or personal details. This ensures your online shopping is safe and secure.
what is my username?
Your username is your email address.
what happens if I forget my password?
Don't worry, with so many passwords these days it's not surprising that we forget the odd one! Simply click here, enter your email address and click ‘Email me'. We will then send you an email with a special link which will let you enter a new password. For security reason, we never send out your password in an email.
How do I request your latest catalogue?
If you've already placed an order with us this season, you'll automatically receive next season's catalogue unless you specifically request otherwise. If you haven't placed an order with us, you might like to request our latest catalogue, or if you are already a registered customer, you must log-in and then click "order the new catalogue" at the very top of the page. If you do not have an email address, or wish to request a catalogue over the phone, please call 0344 848 6000.
do you sell gift vouchers?
Yes, you can buy them here.
How does your wish list work
Our wish list is a great way to let friends and family know what you'd like on our site. Once you have found what you're after, choose the colour and/or size from the options available (where relevant) and click on the ‘add to wish list' link, found underneath the ‘add to basket' button. The following message ‘This item has been added to your wishlist‘ will appear on screen to let you know the addition has been successful. To view your list, click on ‘wish list' on the header, and log in if necessary. Your wish list can also be accessed from ‘my account'. You have the option to print out your list, or email is to friends or family. Unfortunately, if someone orders something from your list, it isn't automatically removed, but it's a great way to start collecting ideas for presents.
On the back cover of my catalogue there's a catalogue code, what is this and how can I use it?
A catalogue code can be used online by typing it into the promotional code box on the basket page, or quoting it when you order by phone. This information allows us to work out lots of useful things, such as when the best time to send a catalogue is. Different customer groups get different codes and some may even give you a discount or free postage, so it's always worth typing in/quoting your code before you proceed to checkout.
How do I place an order
Placing an order on our website is easy. Once you've found the product, choose the correct colour and/or size (where relevant) from the options available and click ‘add to basket' – your product will be added to the mini shopping basket (found top right on the page). Once you have everything in your shopping basket, click ‘view basket' to continue to checkout. Checkout is where you pay for your item(s). You will need to log in before giving any payment details as this takes you to the secure part of our website. If you have placed an order online with us before, simply type in your email address and password to log in. If you are a new customer you will need to take a few moments to create an account – a quick and easy process to do. Alternatively, you can place your order via Customer Services (Monday – Friday, 8am – 8pm, Saturday, Sunday & Bank Holidays, 10am – 4pm) on 0344 848 6000
I don't have a postcode - how do I place an order with your online?
You can place an order online without needing to add in a postcode, even though the field shows on our site as ‘required'. Simply enter in all your address details, leave the postcode field blank, but (and this is the important bit!) make sure you choose your country correctly from the list of options. This will ensure you can continue with the checkout process successfully and place your order with us.

Can I use promotional vouchers advertised in publications online?
Yes. We sometimes advertise with other websites and publications, such as Junior Magazine, and these promotions are open to everyone. However there are other “Discount voucher” websites which promote offer codes that often do not work, are out of date, or simply made up! We don't have control of these sites but if you find an offer code being promoted that isn't valid, please can you email the code, and a link to the site promoting it, to roguecodes@gltc.co.uk. For all genuine codes please enter them into the 'promotional code' box on the basket page. The value of the promotion will automatically be deducted from your shopping basket sub-total. Promotions are not available in conjunction with any other offers. Promotions are not available on sale items
