I have an open voucher, how do I redeem it?

To redeem an open voucher navigate through our website and choose an experience. When you check out you’ll have the opportunity to enter a discount code in the ‘your details’ section of the check out. Enter the long voucher number there.

My voucher has expired!

Our experience vouchers are valid for one year from the date of purchase, giving you an extended time to redeem the experience. We recommend booking early to avoid disappointment.

I have not received my voucher that I purchased!

We send all vouchers the same or next working day that we receive the order. If you have not received a post voucher within 7 days then please contact us and we’ll arrange for a replacement to be sent.

I have an experience, how do I book?

If you have an experience voucher for a specific experience, follow the instructions on the voucher.

Is booking on GiftExperienceSouthAfrica.co.za secure?

Yes, 100% secure. We use Virtual Crd Services (VCS) for all secure payments who are SA’s leading internet payment provider. All information entered on the check out on Gift Experience South Africa is also secured. You can tell the page is secure by the padlock in your computer’s web browser. In line with South African and international banking regulations, our secure payments portal is also secured by 3D Secure supported by Verified by Visa and Mastercard Secure. Read more about our website security.

3D Secure

Most banks in South Africa now require an additional level of security for credit cards for making online purchases. Should you be using a Visa or Mastercrd, there is a high possibility that your bank will require this additional step in the purchasing process. You will need to hve registered your card with your cellphone number with your bank that they can contact you when you make an online purchase (contact via SMS) and provide you with a once off security pin code to type in to verify the purchase. Should you not yet have registered your card with your bank and you see the 3D Secure screen appear during your purchasing process, you will need to visit your bank’s website to make the once-off registration first in order to complete the purchase. Your purchase will not be authorised without this step. Should you have any concerns, please contact us.

Can I see how the voucher will look before I book?

All Gift Experience South Africa gift vouchers are personalised for your experience so we can’t show you how it will look exactly, however you can view our experience packaging.

I need a last minute gift pack!

No problem! You can either choose to receive your gift voucher by Overnight Courier (which is guaranteed to be with you next working day or you can select an E-ticket which is guaranteed to be with you as soon as your order is completed.

What restrictions are in place for experience goers?

Each and every experience is different but if there are any specific restrictions then you can find out about them in the ‘Useful information’ section of the product information.

The experience I purchased is no longer available for sale?

Don’t worry! If the experience is no longer available for sale this doesn’t mean that you can’t get that experience. If in the unlikely event we are unable to provide you with the experience, we’ll contact you to arrange an alternative.

The experience I wanted is no longer available for sale?

New experiences are always added to Gift Experience South Africa and old experiences are removed. If you can’t find an experience that we had previously listed, that means that it is no longer available for sale with us.

What insurance is provided for experiences?

Each individual activity has it’s own insurance and Gift Experience South Africa ensures that all experiences sold are covered with adequate insurance and risk assessment is provided. You can request full details of the insurance cover when you book your experience date.

I have lost my voucher!

If you have lost your experience voucher the purchaser of the voucher will need to get in touch with us and we can issue a duplicate voucher or E-ticket.

Can I get a refund?

Refunds are available up to 14 days after the date of purchase. Where this is your preference, there is a R50 administration charge for refunding vouchers, where this is our error there is no charge.

Can I pay by some other means?

Unfortunately Gift Experience South Africa does not accept cheques as payment for an experience. However, we can arrange an invoice for you should you wish to pay for your voucher via EFT. Please contact us to arrange.

 

Can I get a VAT receipt?

Gift Experience South Africa is not registered for VAT so we do not have a VAT number. You can use the confirmation order email as a receipt for tax purposes.
