Upgrading your subscription

If you currently have an 'individual' digital subscription, you can upgrade to one of our Friends & Family or Business subscriptions at any time.

To see which upgrades are available to you, simply log in to your IM Subs account, select 'My Subscriptions', click to view your current subscription information, and below this you will see any available upgrades.

From the list of available upgrades in your 'My Subscriptions' section of your IM Subs account, select the product you wish to upgrade to by clicking the 'Upgrade' button. You will then be guided through the ordering process.

Your old subscription will be cancelled immediately, and your new subscription will begin right away. If you paid for an annual subscription, any unused whole months will be refunded to you separately via your original payment method - this normally takes a couple of days.

Your existing subscription ID will be carried forward to your new subscription, so there is no need to update your login details.

For full details of making the most of your new subscription, please see here.
