Should I purchase an e-voucher or a regular gift card?
The e-vouchers are great if the recipient of your gift lives abroad or if you are purchasing a gift last-minute and don’t have time to wait for delivery. When buying an e-voucher the gift card will be emailed to you as a PDF (usually within an hour of purchase) and this can either be forwarded along to your recipient or printed out.
I want to buy an e-voucher but can’t see where to write my gift message.
E-vouchers do not permit gift messages. If you would like to personalise your gift then you can write a message to your email when you forward it along to your recipient or you can print your voucher and place it inside a card with a handwritten message.
I am purchasing a voucher online and it is asking me for information such as my name and email address, should I provide the information of the recipient of the gift?
No, the information provided should be your personal details as you will be purchasing the gift. Vouchers do not have a name on the gift card and simply contain a code that the recipient can quote over the phone or online when redeeming the funds.
Can vouchers be used to pay for incidentals when staying in a hotel?
No. Vouchers can only be used to pay for a room reservation at the time of booking with MMS, either on the website or over the phone with our Smith24 team. Vouchers cannot be redeemed while at the hotel and cannot go towards any extras such as meals or spa treatments.
