Our commitment to you: We at Driving Gift are dedicated to helping you and your family to enjoy your special day in a safe but fun environment. We will supply you with the best suitable cars and expert instructors available for your experience whilst also delivering value for money.
Your commitment to us: You must take your experience within the 10 months date of the voucher. Advanced booking is required. We usually need 4 weeks notice, more in peak times. Once you confirm your experience date, we reserve the car and instructor for that day. If you later wish to cancel you will be in breach of contract and therefore we are entitled to retain any monies paid. By calling our booking line on 01325 371413 up to 3 weeks prior to the event it may be possible to move your experience to another date subject to a £30-00 administration fee. If you want to move your experience date within the 3 weeks it will be £50.00.
Please leave plenty of time for your journey to the circuit and arrive 30 mins before your experience is due to start. Once you arrive at the circuit you will be asked to sign a Participant Declaration form which asks you to confirm that you are fit and able to participate in the chosen activity.
Delivery of vouchers: Once your experience is paid for from our website www.drivinggift.co.uk, your voucher will be sent to you by Royal Mail First class post. Please allow 7 days for delivery at peak times.
Refunds: Driving Gift are happy to offer a refund within 7 days of purchase subject to an administration charge of £30 on return of the voucher purchased. After 7 days no refund will be available although you may be able to transfer your experience to a different date with more than 3 weeks notice, subject to a £30 administration fee.
Adverse weather conditions: Sometimes due to reasons beyond our control (eg. adverse weather conditions) we may have to cancel or suspend certain experiences on safety grounds. If this happens we will make every effort to run the experience later that day or on the next available day. Driving Gift can not be held responsible for any costs incurred in the way of travel/accommodation.
Mechanical breakdown: Sometimes due to reasons beyond our control (eg.mechanical breakdown) we may have to cancel or suspend your activity. If this happens every effort will be made to fix the problem as soon as possible and continue the experience. If this is not possible an alternative experience on that day will be offered or we will re book you in on the next available day.
