If you have ever thought about getting a Virgin Experience days voucher but thought it was a ‘scam’, you won’t be a lone. I was the same. I used to think they were too good to be true and perhaps the service won’t be the same if you went without a voucher. I finally took the plunge last year and got a voucher for friend’s birthday and I haven’t looked back since!
Before I tell you what I have done so far with Virgin Experience Days, I should dispel my earlier thoughts: they are excellent value for money vouchers and the services I had received so far are amazing. I also did some double checking and some of the vouchers are actually just offers from the individual service providers: most, are the same prices( or double for 2 people) so no they are not ‘too good to be true’!
Tip: Always search for a discount code: there’s always one (sign up for their newsletters) they also offer student discounts. There’s also sales most of the time
How it works
- Buy your chosen experience
- Activate your voucher following instructions in your email confirmation
- Book your experience following instructions once your voucher has been activate
- Enjoy your experience and go back and look for more!
Below are some of the experiences I have done so far with Virgin Experience days vouchers, all paid for myself:
The View from The Shard and a Three Course Meal for Two at Marco Pierre White’s London Steakhouse Co
The first experience I booked! It went well and there was no confusion/issues with any of them. This one takes some coordination especially if you wanted to book both experiences in one day. The service at the MPW’s Steakhouse was impeccable. There was no confusion on payment at the end. (note they will still add service charge so depending on whether you ordered any extras (we did) you will have a very affordable bill at the end)
Tapas Style Afternoon Tea with Free Flowing Cocktails and Prosecco for Two at MAP Maison
This was so worth it and truly a free flowing experience for the duration of your slot. Our glasses were not empty and there was a good selection of cocktails to choose from. The afternoon tea/tapas were delicious too and quite filling. You will definitely leave slightly tipsy
Tropical Cocktail Masterclass for Two at Laki Kane
This one really is for cocktail lovers. For snippet of what went down. Check out my instagram reel here
There’s a few more experiences have done! Watch out for more in a second blog post.
Catch you later
