Frequently asked questions

When will my first issue be delivered?

When you place your order, you are able to choose whether your subscription should start with the upcoming or the following issue. Depending on your selection, it may take a few weeks until you receive your first printed LFI issue. 

What does my LFI subscription include?

Aside from the printed issue of LFI, all of our subscription models come with identical benefits: you gain access to the current, original-layout LFI edition in the LFI app, and in a web-optimised layout on the LFI website. In addition, you are able to access the digitised LFI archive (comprising more than 300 issues starting from 1949) in the LFI app, along with exclusive content (LFI+ stories) on the LFI website. 

What is LFI+, and how do I access it?

LFI+ is an exclusive section on the LFI website featuring extended content for subscribers only. This includes a web-optimised version of LFI Magazine, along with supplementary material. To access this content, simply register on the LFI website using your email address, before adding your subscription number in the My Account section.

Can I access digital content immediately after subscribing?

Yes. As soon as you have placed your order, you will receive a confirmation email containing a temporary subscription code. This enables you to register on the LFI website and access all digital content (i.e. the current issue and the LFI archive in the LFI app, as well as all LFI+ stories on the LFI website). Within a few days, you will receive your invoice – which also contains your personal subscription number to replace your temporary code.

How long can I use my temporary subscription code?

Your provisional code is valid for 10 days. Important: please add your personal subscription number to your customer account as soon as you have received it, using the field provided. 

I would like to read LFI in digital form. Which options are available?

You are able to read LFI Magazine in its original layout in the LFI app for iOS and Android devices. In addition, a web-optimised version of LFI Magazine can be found in the LFI+ section of the LFI website (Print Stories), accessible to subscribers free of charge.

Does my subscription renew automatically?

Yes. Even after your minimum subscription term has ended, you will continue to receive LFI Magazine without having to take any action. The invoice for your annual subscription is sent out at the start of each subscription year. After completing your minimum term, you are able to cancel your subscription with one month’s notice. Pre-paid amounts for the remaining period will be refunded.

How do I cancel my subscription?

LFI subscriptions offer a high degree of flexibility. Unless otherwise agreed, subscriptions can be cancelled at the end of every calendar month as soon as the minimum term has been completed. Simply contact our subscription service team at, or use the cancellation form on the LFI website. 

What is the notice period for cancellations?

Once the minimum term has been completed, subscriptions can be cancelled with one month’s notice.

Where can I make changes to my personal details?

Changes to your personal details can be made here, or by contacting our subscription service team.

Where can I find my customer and subscription number?
