TERMS & CONDITIONS FOR EXPERIENCES

Face value vouchers issued by lastminute.com entitle the holder to choose, up to the value stated on them, one of a range of experiences supplied by lastminute.com. Experience vouchers do not have a value stated on them and entitle the holder to the experience stated on them. The actual fulfilment of the experience will be by selected third party experience operators acting on our behalf. All lastminute.com Vouchers (“Vouchers”) carry a unique serial number, which must be quoted when dealing with lastminute.com and its experience operators. Vouchers must be kept safely and securely and should be taken on the day of the experience and surrendered to the operator or alternatively sent to the operator if requested to secure the booking. We recommend sending them by secure mail as they are not replaceable if lost. We cannot accept responsibility for any loss you may incur as a result of theft, impersonation or identity fraud.

ORDERS

The placing of an order constitutes your acceptance of Virgin Experience Day’s Terms & Conditions of trading but does not constitute the creation of a contract. lastminute.com reserves the right to decline to process an order for any reason whatsoever. The contract is between you and lastminute.com, once we have processed your order and received payment. For the protection of our customers and to ensure that your credit, debit or charge card is not being used without your consent, we will validate name, address and other personal information supplied by you during the order process against appropriate third party databases. By accepting these terms and conditions you consent to such checks being made. In performing these checks personal information provided by you may be disclosed to a registered Credit Reference Agency which may keep a record of that information. You can rest assured that this is done only to confirm your identity, that a credit check is not performed and that your credit rating will be unaffected. All information provided by you will be treated securely and strictly in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998. If an order cannot be fulfilled for any reason, lastminute.com will promptly refund all monies. Duplicate orders are sometimes inadvertently placed or despatched. We ask that you return any duplicates immediately or contact us for further instructions. Should both vouchers be used, we will be entitled to claim payment for the costs incurred.

International/overseas orders

All prices shown on lastminute.com websites are in GBP and all transactions are conducted in GBP. If ordering from overseas or from a foreign currency account you may be charged fees by your bank to process the transaction. These fees are in addition to any prices on our website and are beyond our control.

Experience descriptions, formats and durations

Experience descriptions, format and timings given on lastminute.com websites and in any other literature are only intended to present a general idea of the experience, and shall not be considered binding. In particular, photographs are for illustrative purposes only and do not form part of any contract between you and lastminute.com. As lastminute.com offers experiences at a wide number of venues, details such as session lengths, itineraries, equipment used and numbers of participants may vary from location to location. Most experiences 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. If delays, curtailments and breakdowns are not within Virgin Experience Day’s control, we cannot be held liable if these should occur. Please note that we reserve the right to alter any part of the experience where such an alteration has been imposed by the operator. We cannot be held responsible for descriptions by or on any third party or agent sites. Experiences may occasionally be withdrawn for reasons outside of our control, and lastminute.com cannot be held liable for any costs incurred as a result of this. Should this occur, you or your recipient will be advised and offered the opportunity to exchange your voucher for one with the same face value. If alternatives are available, no refunds can be offered.

Availability

The recipient is free to book their preferred date within the Voucher validity period. Experiences are subject to availability and, in some cases, may be subject to weather conditions (if your experience is weather dependent we advise telephoning the centre before you set out to confirm that the event will take place). To avoid disappointment we recommend that customers book well in advance, at least 6-8 weeks for the majority of experiences. During peak periods it may be necessary to allow a longer notice period although some operators may occasionally be able to fit in a booking at short notice. We recommend booking as early as possible as you must have undertaken your experience before the expiry date printed on the front of your Voucher. We strongly advise that you do not make any travel, accommodation or other arrangements until you have received confirmation of your booking from the experience operator. Once a date has been booked with a supplier your Voucher will be deemed to be used at that point.

Restrictions

Most experiences are subject to restrictions. These could include (but are not limited to) age, height, weight, physical and medical restrictions, and may vary from centre to centre so please check before making your booking. Details of these restrictions are available on our website and by visiting www.lastminute.comexperiencedays.co.uk/myvoucher. It is your responsibility to ensure that you choose an experience appropriate for the intended recipient and it is the responsibility of the recipient to double check that the restrictions are not prohibitive. If you are unsure of the suitability please telephone us and we will be happy to advise you.

Spectators

Spectators are usually welcome but occasionally a centre may make a small charge to cover insurance and/or refreshments. Some venues may have restrictions on spectators due to safety regulations. Participants are advised to check with the centre when booking.

Prices & locations

We reserve the right to vary the prices of the experiences which we offer. lastminute.com’s current experience prices may differ from the value of your face value voucher.

Cancellation by participants

Once you make a booking with an experience operator you are bound by their terms and conditions. Make sure you understand their rules regarding changing or cancelling a booking (particularly at short notice) as a refund will not be offered in the case of infringement of these rules. Virgin Experience Day’s Cancellation Indemnity policy may provide a replacement Voucher in the event of cancellation by the participant owing to circumstances beyond their control.

Liability cover

All UK and Eire experience operators contract with us to indemnify participating Voucher holders against damage to equipment they use, and against liabilities to third parties, subject to limits and compliance with their rules, terms and conditions, which may vary between operators. We also hold cover, subject to terms and limits, for contingent liabilities arising at these operators’ venues. Where experiences require overseas travel, the participant is strongly advised to take out additional specialist travel insurance. Some experience operators may offer additional indemnities at an extra cost. Such indemnities are entirely optional and you are under no obligation to purchase them, as your entitlement to undertake the experience will not be affected if you choose not to accept an additional indemnity. Any additional indemnities purchased from an experience operator will be governed by that operator’s terms and conditions and do not form any part of your contract with lastminute.com.

Your Gift Card can be used for purchasing goods and services at participating retailers, however, like any payment card we cannot guarantee that a retailer will accept the Gift Card.

Authorisation for a transaction may not be withdrawn (or revoked) by you once we have received it.

Your Gift Card is denominated in the Denominated Currency and you can only make transactions in the Denominated Currency.

We recommend that you check the balance and any recent transactions on your Gift Card regularly through the Website or by contacting Customer Services.

Any returns and exchanges for goods purchased will be governed by the policy of the retailer and applicable law. The retailer may not apply a credit to your Gift Card and instead must issue its own note of credit for a refunded item.

If you dispute a transaction that has been processed on your Gift Card you should contact the retailer to resolve the dispute.

We may at anytime suspend, restrict or cancel your Gift Card or refuse to issue or replace a Gift Card if we suspect your Gift Card is being used in an unauthorised or fraudulent manner, if you have not complied with these terms and conditions or in the event of exceptional circumstances which prohibit the normal operation of the Gift Cards.

5. Cancellation and Refund Process

The purchaser of a Gift Card via the Website is entitled to a 14 day 'Cooling-Off Period'. The Gift Card should be returned to Customer Services unused with your original sales receipt and a full refund will be made (less the postage fee) to the card used to purchase the Gift Card.

6. Keeping Your Gift Card Secure

You should treat your Gift Card like cash. If it is lost or stolen, you may lose some or all of your money on your Gift Card, in the same way as if you lost cash in your wallet or purse. As a result, you must keep your Gift Card safe and not let anyone else use it. Security information includes your memorable data set up on registration of your Gift Card.

We recommend that you check the balance on your Gift Card regularly through the Website or by calling Customer Services.

7. Lost, Stolen or Unauthorised Payment

If you have registered your Gift Card and you lose it or it is stolen you must tell us as soon as possible by calling the Lost and Stolen Card Line. Once we have verified that you are the registered Cardholder we will immediately cancel your Gift Card and will not authorise any further transactions. If, after reporting a lost card, you subsequently find the card you must not use it. Cut it in half through the magnetic strip.

You may request a Replacement Gift Card for which a fee will apply. Any outstanding balance less the Replacement Gift Card Fee will be transferred to the Replacement Gift Card. Requests to replace a Gift Card may be denied at our discretion if we suspect fraudulent or other unlawful activity.

8. Your Liability

In the event that you do not use your Gift Card in accordance with these Terms and Conditions or we find that you are using the Gift Card fraudulently, we reserve the right to charge you for any reasonable costs that we incur in taking action to stop you using this Gift Card and to recover any monies owed as a result of your activities.

In the unlikely event, for any reason whatsoever, a transaction is completed when there are insufficient funds on the Gift Card for that transaction (a "Shortfall"), the Shortfall shall be reimbursed by you unless it is due to an error on the part of the retailer where the Gift Card was presented, in this circumstance we may seek the Shortfall from the retailer. We reserve the right to charge you an Administration Fee for each transaction that you make using your Gift Card that results in a Shortfall or increases the Shortfall amount on your Gift Card.

You are liable for each transaction undertaken on your Gift Card until such time that your Gift Card is cancelled in accordance with section 7 above.

9. Our Liability

Like other payment cards, we cannot guarantee a retailer will accept your Gift Card, or that we will necessarily authorise any particular transaction. This may be because of a systems problem, something outside our reasonable control, to comply with legal and regulatory requirements, or because we have suspended, restricted or cancelled your Gift Card or refused to replace it in accordance with these Terms and Conditions. We shall not be liable in any event that a retailer refuses to accept your Gift Card, or if we do not authorise a transaction, or if we cancel or suspend use of your Gift Card.

From time to time, your ability to use your Gift Card may be interrupted, e.g. when we carry out maintenance. If this happens, you may be unable (a) to use your Gift Card to pay for purchases and/or (b) to obtain information about the funds available on your Gift Card and/or about your recent transactions. We will not be liable for any loss arising from such interruptions.

Unless otherwise required by law, neither we nor the Distributor shall be liable for any direct or indirect loss or damage you may suffer including loss of revenue, goodwill, opportunity or anticipated savings as a result of your total or partial use or inability to use your Gift Card, or the use of your Gift Card by any third party (including any fraudulent use by any third party).

We are not responsible for the quality, safety, legality or any other aspect of any goods or services purchased with your Gift Card. Remember that once you have used your Gift Card to make a purchase we cannot stop that transaction.

10. Changes to These Terms and Conditions

We may change these Terms and Conditions at any time. The most recent version of the Gift Card Terms and Conditions will always be available on the Website. You should check the site regularly for the up to date Terms and Conditions. Unless you tell us that you do not agree to the change prior to the change being effective we will assume you accept such change.

11. Data Protection

We will transfer your personal data within our groups of companies, to the Distributor and to other third parties in order to issue and run your Gift Card. We my transfer your personal data outside the EEA, when we do this we will take steps to ensure that your data is afforded the same level of protection as it would if your data was processed within the EEA.
