Terms & Conditions
Buyagift issues gift vouchers to its customers via its website. Each voucher is an opportunity to suggest an appropriate experience for the recipient of the voucher but if the recipient would prefer a diferent experience, the voucher can also be redeemed by the recipient for a range of other activities. Whilst every effort is made to ensure the descriptions and pictures contained within the website and on gift vouchers are a true refection of the events in respect of which the voucher may be redeemed, these do not form part of a contract. If on contacting the operator to redeem your voucher you feel that the activity taking place no longer accurately represents the activity shown on the Buyagift website, Buyagift will exchange the voucher or refund the purchase price. Once a specific date has been booked, you will automatically become bound by the terms and conditions that individual operator may have. Please note that experiences are subject to change without notice. This does not afect your statutory rights.
The prices of specific experiences against which gift vouchers can be redeemed which are displayed on our website are correct to the best of our knowledge and maintained on a daily basis. In the event of a voucher being issued at or redeemed against an accidental incorrect price, we will endeavour to inform the purchaser of the error within seven days of the voucher purchase / voucher redemption being made, we will allow the recipient to either obtain a full refund against the voucher or choose to pay the additional difference in price. Promotional discount codes can only be redeemed against certain Buyagift experiences.Return to top of page
Buyagift sells vouchers which are valid for 10 months from the date of issue (unless otherwise stated) and each recipient is free to book their preferred date for their chosen experience. The experiences in respect of which vouchers may be redeemed are subject to availability and in some cases, subject to weather conditions on the day. In order to avoid disappointment, we recommend that you book the experience in respect of which the voucher will be redeemed well in advance and DO NOT organise travel or accommodation until the booking has been confrmed by the operator.Return to top of page
Please do not arrive at a venue expecting to redeem your gift voucher without frst making a booking with operator. You must visit https://myvoucher.buyagift.co.uk/Account/MyVoucher and follow the instructions to organise your experience. Buyagift will not be held liable for any costs incurred if you do not follow the procedure set out in these Terms and Conditions and in your voucher pack.Return to top of page
4. Event Duration
Details of event duration given on the website and gift voucher are to be used as a guide only. Most events will be ‘open’ days, meaning that other members of the public will be taking part too. This could mean taking your turn with other members of the public. The information on our website and voucher is meant as an indication of what to expect at the session in respect of which your voucher is redeemed. As Buyagift vouchers can be redeemed in return for multi-location experiences, session lengths, agendas, vehicles used, numbers of participants and other factors specific to that experience may vary from location to location. Delays, curtailments and breakdowns are not within our control and therefore we cannot be held liable.Return to top of page
The undertaking of these activities may involve some personal risk. With some events you may be required to sign a disclaimer on the day, please read these documents carefully. Some personal insurance policies may not cover some of the experiences in respect of which our vouchers may be redeemed. Please check with the operator and your insurer well in advance of your day. Note that operators usually require participants to comply with specifed safety procedures. Please listen and take note if they ask you to do something - it is usually for your own safety.Return to top of page
Each gift voucher is valid for a maximum of ten months from the date of issue unless otherwise stated. A voucher will be deemed to be invalid if it is out of date (the validity date is clearly stated on the voucher). Vouchers can only be extended if they are still inside their expiry date and if the experience is still available from the supplier. If the customer or recipient is unable to utilise the voucher before the expiry date then the voucher can be extended for standard admin fee of £20 by visiting www.buyagift.co.uk/myvoucher. If the activity in respect of which the voucher is to be redeemed has increased in price, the customer will also need to pay the diference in price. Vouchers purchased on Special Ofer may not be extendable (in these instances this will have been clearly stated at the time of purchase). All experiences should be booked and taken before the expiry date on the voucher.Return to top of page
7. Choosing the right experience
Many of the vouchers offered may be redeemed for experiences which have some type of restriction applied to them; these restrictions are not decided by us but by the individual operator. These restrictions could include age, health, physical and size restrictions. Please read all the information provided for each experience, to ensure that your initial suggested voucher is the right one for the recipient. If you are unsure of the suitability of a particular event, please contact us with your query and we will advise you accordingly.Return to top of page
The easiest way to resolve any problems that you may experience is to speak to the operator on the day. They will ensure that any issues are rectifed. If you are still not satisfed, please send in details of your complaint (including your voucher reference number and the name of the person you spoke to on the day) to: Customer Services, Buyagift, 4 Imperial Place, Maxwell Road, Borehamwood, Hertfordshire, WD6 1JN. Alternatively, you can contact us. Please remember that the operator will have the opportunity to respond as well. Similarly, we would like to hear any positive feedback. Email us on firstname.lastname@example.org.Return to top of page
Once you book a specific date with an operator you are bound by their terms and conditions regarding cancellations. Once a date is confrmed with an operator it is not possible to change this date unless the operator agrees to the change. Where a date cannot be altered by an operator it will not be possible to issue a refund. In the unlikely event that one of our operators needs to cancel the experience after you have booked a date, they will contact you. We strongly recommend however, that you contact the operator on the day before you depart for your experience. In the event of cancellation, Buyagift will not be held liable for the cost of lost insurance premiums, travel expenses, pre-booked accommodation costs or any other costs incurred.Return to top of page
10. Operators & liability
When redeeming your voucher and booking an experience with an operator you will be entering into a separate agreement with the operator and will be bound by their own terms and conditions, including any restrictions applied by that operator. Although Buyagift has sought to select highly experienced operators of ‘once in a lifetime’ experiences, Buyagift cannot be responsible for the safety standards or the quality or delivery of the experience, or any loss or damage sufered by you whilst participating in the experience for which the Operator shall be solely responsible. By purchasing a Buyagift voucher booking an experience with a supplier, you acknowledge that the experience in respect of which the voucher will be redeemed is dependent on certain factors beyond the control of Buyagift and you agree that neither Buyagift nor any operator shall be liable for the cancellation, postponement or alteration of any experience for reasons beyond its reasonable control, including weather-related reasons, mechanical failure, location changes or otherwise. We do not undertake any technical examination of equipment, facilities or services in order to minimise personal risk. If mechanical machinery breaks down, you should ask the operator for reasonable substitutions without notice. The total liability of Buyagift for any claim whatsoever in connection with the Buyagift voucher or any experience in respect of which a voucher is redeemed shall be limited to the price paid for the experience voucher. We have tried to ensure that the descriptions and images used on all marketing material are accurate. However, images are intended to give a general idea of the experience described and do not form part of any contract between the purchaser and / or the recipient of the voucher and Buyagift.Return to top of page
Most operators will allow you to bring spectators to watch you participate in your selected experience. When redeeming your voucher and booking your date please inform the operator that you wish to bring other people. Some operators may request a nominal payment for spectators. Spectators are required to comply with the operators’ terms, conditions and expectations of conduct. Any spectators deemed under the influence of drugs or alcohol will not be permitted on site.Return to top of page
12. Top-ups and credits
Buyagift vouchers are flexible and can be used for the whole range of experiences available. In order to achieve this, vouchers can be exchanged free of charge by visiting https://myvoucher.buyagift.co.uk/Account/MyVoucher. If you need to extend the validity of your voucher at the point of voucher exchange, this can be done for a standard admin fee of £20. If the substituted experience in respect of which the voucher is being exchanged costs more than the original voucher you must pay a top up amount. If the replacement voucher/experience is lower in price we will issue an additional credit voucher for the diference.Return to top of page
We’re happy to make refunds on unused vouchers bought direct from Buyagift within 60 days of purchase. Once you or your recipient has redeemed your voucher and booked an experience with an operator you are bound by their Terms and Conditions. Please make yourself aware of these at the time of booking. All refunds will be made to the person who purchased the voucher and they will be refunded directly via the original method of payment. Should this not be possible for any reason, the refund shall be issued by cheque. All refunds are processed at month-end and take between 5 and 10 working days to show in the purchaser’s account. To request a refund please call our friendly customer service team on 020 8275 5220 and select the option for an ‘unwanted voucher’ to discuss your options.Return to top of page
