Experience vouchers are a two-step process. You buy the voucher from the experience company and then redeem the voucher with the actual tour or experience provider. This has benefits and pitfalls.
Many of the complaints customers make about experience gifts are because they don’t realise that experience vouchers are not online bookings and then they find that they can’t do the experience on the one day they wanted. Yet, the big advantage of an experience voucher for a gift is that you don’t have to specify the date and risk choosing the wrong one.
- Convenience – Many small operators don’t have the facilities to provide gift vouchers.
- Instant Gifts – Vouchers can be sent by email when you buy them – so you can buy the gift at the very last minute.
- Range – The experience companies find a wide range of experiences, often getting you special deals or packages.
- If you are buying a gift and are unsure of the recipient’s interests, you can buy a general voucher, or if you choose one, they can select to change it.
- You are buying an open-dated voucher even if they provide indicative dates. If you see an experience and want it for a specific date, you risk that date not being available.
Experience vouchers for everything from massage and pamper days to hot air balloon rides, horse riding to tiger moth flights, romantic escapes to thrill seeking adventure make excellent gifts for others… and for yourself.
