Warranty and Refund Policy

Our products are covered by one-year limited warranty from date of purchase. See below for warranty details.


For non-warranty-based reasons (for example 30 day guarantee), our policy lasts 30 (thirty) days from delivery. If 30 days have gone by since your purchase, unfortunately we can’t offer you a refund or exchange.

To be eligible for a non-warranty-based return, your item must be directly purchased from theairbolt.com, and in the same condition that you received it with cables/original packaging/instructions.  NOTE: Accessories bought separately do not qualify for this offer.

To complete your non-warranty based return, we require a receipt or proof of purchase and you must initiate and complete the return approval process within 30 days of delivery - i.e. it must be approved by our support team @ support@theairbolt.com. Once it is approved, it must be shipped within 14 calendars days of the official approval email - you'd need to provide us with the tracking details. 

To complete your return, we require a receipt or proof of purchase and it must be approved by our support team @ support@theairbolt.com. Once it is approved, it must be shipped within 14 calendars days of the official approval email - you'd need to provide us with the tracking details. 

Simply email us and we will look after you and provide the relevant steps to return.

Refunds (if applicable)


Once your return is received and inspected, we will send you an email to notify you that we have received your returned item. We reserve the right to accept or reject your refund after analysis of the product. We will also notify you of the approval or rejection of your refund. In some cases when returns are due to defects, we may not require you to send the item back, a video with the issue detailed may suffice.

For non-warranty related returns, if the item is returned opened, has parts accessories or parts missing or has damaged packaging we reserve the right to refuse the return or deduct a restocking fee of up to 45% of purchase price or value of the item.

For warranty related returns, all items (except for manuals) that came in the product box must be sent back including charging cables unless otherwise approved in writing. Not doing so, can result in a rejection of claim/missing item fee. 

If your refund is approved, then your refund will be processed, and a credit will automatically be applied to your credit card or original method of payment, within 7 days of receiving the item back.

Late or missing refunds (if applicable)
If you haven’t received a refund yet, first check your bank account again, contact your bank/credit card company.

If you’ve done all of this and you still have not received your refund yet, please contact us at billing@theairbolt.com.

AirBolt GPS Subscription Policy:

Having a subscription provides the GPS with the ability to send location and other data back to you, the user and is imperative to proper functioning of the device. Your GPS typically comes with a free trial period and you can cancel the subscription anytime within this period without incurring further cost. It is your responsibility to manage the subscription renewals/cancelations/activations. Post this period, the subscription is non-refundable for the purchased period of time - you can cancel future renewals at anytime however, as there are no contracts.

Should your GPS not come with a trial for example, perhaps due to a promotion, we still give you 14 calendar day grace period in which we can refund you the cost of subscription. 

Sale items (if applicable)
Only regular priced items may be refunded under the 30 day return window, unfortunately sale items cannot be refunded.

Exchanges (if applicable)
We only replace items if they are defective or damaged and under warranty. If you need to exchange it for the same item, send us an email at support@theairbolt.com and obtain approval.

We will cover the reshipping costs of replacements. Depending on the situation, we may require you to send the item back to us, or at a bare minimum send us a video of the item displaying the fault for our analysis and replacement approval.

Shipping
You will be responsible for paying for your own shipping costs for returning your item. Shipping costs are non-refundable.

Depending on where you live, the time it may take for your exchanged product to reach you, may vary.

If you are shipping an item over $75, you should consider using a trackable shipping service or purchasing shipping insurance. We don’t guarantee that we will receive your returned item.

AirBolt GPS Pre-Order Policy - For when GPS was Pre-order:

The AirBolt GPS is a cutting edge product and is currently a pre-order. It is estimated to ship in Quarter 2 2023 (April-June 2023). Whilst we endeavour to deliver by this time frame. as the product is going into production, this timeline is subject to change depending on multiple factors. You can keep across latest developments and updates by viewing this link for the latest on timelines.  When you reserve the item we ensure that we purchase the relevant components for your product to be delivered. This essential to avoid variances caused by the Pandemic.

The wait associated with the delivery of the product is why it is currently offered at lower than recommended retail price and a discount is given on subscription costs (to act as an incentive for the time to delivery)

Therefore, should you change your mind, please reach out to us directly as your order maybe subject to a 30% cancellation fee.  This policy does not apply to our Kickstarter or Indiegogo Campaigns as they are governed by Kickstarter terms. We do not offer refunds on our crowdfunding campaigns as funds are for product development.
