Hang on, what's an Experience Voucher?
It's a gift voucher for an unforgettable experience day, such as driving a rally car or flying a helicopter.
Vouchers are valid for up to 10 months, come in a nice presentation gift pack and can be personalised with a name and special message. You just hand the voucher pack to the lucky person you bought it for and they then book the experience in their own time using the contact details provided in the pack. Simple!
How do I choose and buy an Experience Voucher?
We've worked hard to make choosing and buying an experience voucher online a really simple process. Just follow these easy steps:-
- Pick an experience:
Think about the person you are buying for, what do they like doing. Then look around our website in the sections most appropriate. For example, if they've always wanted to drive a Lamborghini check out our Lamborghini driving section where you'll see a list of the various experiences we offer, their prices and where they take place. Click on the picture or title for further details about each experience and when you've finally decided which one will leave them jumping for joy, click on the Buy Now button to go to the Order Form or Contact Us and we'll happily take your order over the phone (for no extra charge).
- Complete the order form:
The order form is very simple and should only take you a couple of minutes to complete. Tell us who the voucher is for and let us know the message you would like to appear on the voucher (e.g. Happy Birthday! Have a great time from Jen, Dave and family), your name, address, email and telephone number and a delivery address if you would like the voucher sent straight to them.
Then click on the Submit Order button which will take you to a page verifying the details you have entered.
- Check your order and pay:
Check the details you have entered are correct and click on the Pay Now button to be taken to our Payment Service Provider's secure server to fill in your credit/debit card details.
(Note: We use SagePay, formerly known as Protx, a leading Payment Service Provider endorsed by all major banks to ensure your card details are safe and secure. If your credit or debit card is part of the Verified by Visa or Mastercard SecureCode schemes you will be requested to enter a password after entering your card details to verify you are the true owner of the card.)
- Confirmation Email:
Once you have completed the credit card payment process your work is done! You will receive an email confirming we have received your order which will contain your Order Number. Your voucher will be despatched within 1 working day and should arrive within 3-5 working days.
Can I order by phone?
Yes. Our online order system is very straightforward and totally secure so we encourage you to give it a go, but if you'd prefer us to take your order over the telephone just call 0844 8040 432 during office hours.
