Help Center


  1. Do I have to select a booking date at the time of purchase?

    No. You may buy any of our experience gifts without scheduling a specific date at the time of purchase. Your recipient will then be able to book their experience at any time for a date most convenient to them.

     

  2. Do I have to purchase a specific experience or can my recipient choose their own experience?

    If you know exactly what your recipient wants, you can purchase the specific experience gift for them. However, if you are not sure which experience gift they would like, you can give one of our Gift Certificates which your recipient can apply towards any of our experiences.

     

  3. Are there expiration dates on your Certificates?

    All Gift Certificates and Experience Certificates purchased after March 1, 2012 do not have expiration dates.

    If you purchase an Experience Certificate (ie: race car driving, gold lesson, massage, etc), you will need to book your experience within 9 months; otherwise, you will only need to pay any difference in price should you book beyond 9 months.

     

  4. What is your Return & Exchange policy?

    Worried they might not like it? Don't be. We have made our Return & Exchange Policy as easy as possible for you and your recipient.

    Extended Holiday Return & Exchange Policy:

    Our Extended Holiday Return Policy states that all purchases made between November 1, 2014 - December 31, 2014 can be returned until January 31, 2015 free of charge.

    If your recipient wishes to Exchange their experience for another one, they can do so at any time, free of charge, either online or by calling us.

    Should they exchange for a more expensive experience, they will simply need to pay the difference in cost. And if they exchange for a less expensive experience, they will have a remaining balance which can be applied towards another experience of their choice.
