Well Samsung is in sout Korea which is also a different continent. You could call them and ask how much it costs to ship to them. There aren’t a lot of drives made in the UK. You’ll likelyly be stuck with international shipping for most stuff besides like a car or something. Nvme drives aren’t very big. The shipping probably won’t be a lot.
As MildIrritant pointed out, that's not how most RMA's typically work, but I appreciate the reply either way!

Did you make the purchase from a US store? If so it's perfectly reasonable for Sabrent to request for the faulty product to be shipped to the region of purchase. Most companies operate like that. If not, then I don't suppose that this is illegal, but it sure does not look good if they want to sell globally. You could try contacting the store you got it from. I don't know if anything has changed in the UK in the meantime, but the EU mandates a minimum of 2 years of warranty for all electronics to be provided by the retailer.
I bought it from amazon.co.uk less than a year ago, making it within warranty, even under British law (Brexit has made things confusing!) I just contacted Amazon and they have asked me to send it to them for a refund. Sabrent said that their refund window only lasts 6 months, even if the product dies, so that was refreshing. Interestingly, the Amazon customer service rep. I had a chat with tried to call Sabrent customer service, however the only phone number listed on their site is based in the US and isn't even a number in service!
TL;DR I should've just contacted Amazon from the get-go instead of wasting time with Sabrent customer service...
