Please Track Your Order if you would like to check the progress of your order.

On some occasions we have dispatched your gift voucher order but it gets lost in the post.  If you have not received your order 3 -4 days after placing the order please contact us.  We may need to cancel your original order and issue you with a new gift voucher.  In this situation we would ask you to destroy the original voucher if it is eventually received as it will no longer be valid.

How do I cancel a gift voucher purchase?

You can cancel your order at any point by selecting the 'Cancel Order' button; however if you have completed the transaction and realise that you've made a mistake or purchased a gift voucher(s) that you no longer want, SK Chase will be happy to refund your card (provided the transaction has taken place within the last 7 days and subject to the individual hotel's terms and conditions) and cancel the gift voucher order. Please note, One Big Deal voucher terms and conditions are held separately. You can find the terms and conditions on your One Big Deal voucher.

Please contact us to arrange this.

How do I order more than 1 gift voucher?

Simply 'Add to Order' as many gift vouchers as you like by using the 'Continue browsing' button. You can also remove items from your order by using the 'Remove' button.

If you would like to purchase more than 1 of the same type of gift voucher simply enter the amount of gift vouchers you would like to buy in the 'Quantity' box, for example, if you would like to purchase 10 Afternoon Tea gift vouchers, select the Afternoon Tea gift voucher and then enter 10 in the Quantity box and click on 'Update'.

You can select different delivery addresses, recipients and personal messages for each of the vouchers in your order.  Please follow the on-screen instructions.

My gift voucher is about to expire and I haven't used it yet. Will I be able to extend the validity of my gift voucher?

It may be possible for us to extend the validity of your gift voucher, however we cannot guarantee this.  Please contact us (the hotel) directly to check if we can offer an extension.

See 'Contact Us' page for our contact details.

I'm attempting to purchase a gift voucher but have received a failed transaction message ('Payment has not been accepted') at the end of the transaction. What should I do next?

There could be several reasons why this may be happening. Despite there being sufficient funds in an account, banks occasionally decline payments due to it being unusual buying behaviour.

This can be easily rectified by contacting the bank and advising them that you are trying to make an online purchase.

Please contact SK Chase directly for further help on enquiries@skchase.com.

I've received my gift voucher but there is a spelling mistake / error on the personal message. Can I get it amended and re-issued?

Yes.  Please contact us directly quoting your gift voucher reference number and we will make the necessary amendments and re-issue the gift voucher.  The original gift voucher should then be destroyed as it will no longer be valid.

If you are unhappy with any aspect of the presentation of your gift voucher please contact us immediately so that we rectify the situation.

I have received a gift voucher but I don't know who it's from. Can you tell me who bought it for me?

Yes.  Occasionally the person buying the gift voucher may ask for the gift vouchers to be sent to the recipient directly but forget to add who the gift is from.

We have all of the buyers details stored on our system so we can easily retrieve your order and tell you who purchased the gift voucher.

I've lost my gift voucher. Can I still make a booking / redeem my experience?

Unless otherwise specified under the terms and conditions of your voucher, we should be able to retrieve your gift voucher on our system by carrying out a name search so please contact us. (See 'Contact Us' page)

Alternatively if you would like another gift voucher issued we can cancel the original and issue another one.

I've received (or purchased) a monetary gift voucher but don't want to use it all in one transaction. Is it possible to receive smaller denomination gift vouchers or to be given another gift voucher(s) with the remaining balance?

All gift vouchers do state that no change will be given however it may be possible for us to re-process the order in smaller denominations so that you can redeem the smaller value vouchers on several occasions rather than one voucher on one occasion.

Alternatively we may be able to give you change back in gift voucher form.

Are you able to provide me with a VAT receipt?

No, I'm afraid that SK Chase cannot supply a VAT receipt nor a VAT invoice. VAT receipts can only be issued by the hotel, as you have purchased one of their gift vouchers, and not an SK Chase voucher.

If you require a VAT receipt please contact the hotel directly.

When does my voucher expire?

All monetary gift vouchers are valid for 12 months and all experience vouchers are valid for 6 months unless otherwise stated.
