Communications with Us
We have features within the site whereby our customers can submit information to us such as via contact forms.

Please note that letters to the editor and similar submissions may be made public.
The majority of transactions on our websites relate to a service or experience rather than having a tangible product to deliver. In this instance a deposit is taken to secure a booking and a unique reference is provided digitally that allows the redemption of the offer. Where there are any promotions that include a tangible product the delivery details are outlined within the specific promotion.
