When I order a voucher online, what do I get?
You will receive a Flight Experience voucher, in the form of an airline Boarding Pass. This will be emailed and ‘snail-mailed’ to you or your nominated recipient. Alternatively, it can be picked up from your local Flight Experience store. The voucher confirms the flight package which has been purchased, but does not include a confirmed date and time for the flight. You can book a date and time when you purchase or at any later date before the voucher expires. Please refer to our Terms and Conditions.
Can I book a date and time for my flight at the time of purchase?
It depends on how you purchase. If you purchase by phone or at a Flight Experience store, you can confirm a booking at the same time. If you purchase online simply call your local store with your details and they will assist you in making your booking.
Can I upgrade to a longer flight than the one purchased?
Yes, you (or your nominated recipient) can upgrade by paying the difference between the value of the voucher and the price of the longer flight – provided this is done when booking a confirmed date and time for the flight.
Can I purchase a souvenir video and/or photos of my flight on the day?
Yes. If you didn’t purchase the video or photos online, you (or your nominated recipient) can still arrange and buy it on the day of the flight.
If I change my mind can I get a refund?
Refund requests made within 14 days of purchase will incur a admin cost of 10% of the purchase price. Refunds are only available to the purchaser for valid vouchers. After the elapse of 14 days from the purchase date, no refunds will be granted for ‘Change of Mind’.
Is the information I supply secure?
Yes, our Buy Now process is protected behind a 128 bit secure SSL, secure connection.
