How do I find the experience I'm looking for?

There are several ways to search for experiences. You can browse through our experience categories, or list of occasions, or perhaps use our keyword search or Gift Finder. Alternatively, you can call our expert team of consultants on 0345 640 8000 for friendly, specialist advice. Our Customer Service Team opening hours are Mon-Thurs 9am-5.30pm, Fri 9am-5pm, excluding Bank Holidays.

UK mainland delivery of tangible gifts such as wines, chocolates and subscriptions is included in the price. Expected delivery times and restrictions may vary and will be indicated in the specific Other Gifts pages of our website.

Can I specify exactly when the pack is delivered?

Although we can't pre-allocate exact standard First Class delivery dates (Royal Mail quote 1-5 working days), if you need the gift pack delivered urgently, you can use our next working day courier service. Click here for full details. Alternatively, you can have instant eVouchers sent via email.

I need a last minute gift but I'm worried it won't be delivered in time!

If you don't need a full pack sent out, select an instant eVoucher to be sent to the email address of your choice, free of charge. Simply order online any time of day or night, enter the email address you want it sent to or just ask if you're phoning through your order. These can be booked for dates as soon as they are received.

If you do need a full Gift Pack or Envelope pack, you can also send a free Temporary eVoucher when you buy online just to say the experience is on its way. The full gift pack and experience details will still be sent out to the delivery address specified. Bookings for dates can then be made once your recipient has both their Voucher Ref and Security Code.
