Experience Gifts Giving Information & FAQs
Experience Days® provides customers with unique experience gifts. We believe that gifts should be given, received, and most importantly experienced.
Activity Gifts are fun, interesting, exciting, or even relaxing activities. Experiences are Unique Gifts, which range from the exhilarating to the refined. All have been selected and designed for the first-time participant. When you purchase an Experience Gift, you are buying a Certificate for the recipient, which they can schedule at their convenience.
Experience Days® offers a range of over 1,500 Adventure Gifts across the US in over 50 major metro areas. We offer some familiar experiences such as Hot Air Balloon Rides and Spa Treatments; unusual activities including Segway Tours & Ghost Tours; and once in a lifetime experiences such as NASCAR Driving or incredible Air Combat Experiences.
We are constantly adding new experience gifts across the United States. To stay up to date with all of the exciting new experiences we add, please register for our Email Updates or view our new Experience Gifts. For those that can’t decide, Experience Days Choice Certificates allow recipients to choose from a variety of Experiences Gifts within color-coded Choice Levels.
To enhance the overall gift experience, every Experience Certificate® is beautifully presented in our specially designed presentation Gift Pack.
When you purchase an Experience Certificate® or Experience Choice Certificate® the Gift Pack will include:
- A Personalized Gift Message
- A Colorful Description of the Gift
- A Guide to the Certificate Redemption & Reservation Process

Why buy Experience Certificates® or Experience Choice Certificates®? Experience Certificates® and Experience Choice Certificates® make the perfect gift for family, friends, loved ones, colleagues, customers and associates. These unique activity gifts provide the recipient with an experience they will remember and value for a lifetime.
How do I find the Perfect Gift? There are several ways you can search for the perfect gift. You may browse through the gift categories, or use the Experience Gift Finder to search by price, category of experience or location. You may also use the keyword search located at the top of each page. Alternatively, you may call a Customer Service Representative at 866-973-7436 for friendly advice.
If you still can’t decide, then you also have the option to purchase Experience Choice Certificate® and allow the recipient to select their own activity.
What can Experience Choice Certificates® be redeemed for? Experience Choice Certificates® are flexible and allow the recipient to choose from a selection of unique activities within the Color Choice Level of purchase. However, the recipient of an Experience Choice Certificate® may also choose to apply their Certificate towards any activity offered because Experience Choice Certificates® may be used as partial payment towards any experience offered.
Experience Choice Certificate® recipients will need to pay the difference in the price if the chosen activity is higher in price than the value associated with their Experience Choice Certificate®. However, a balance will be held in credit to be used against any future purchase if the price of the selected activity is less than the value associated with their original Experience Choice Certificate®. If you know someone who likes to make up their own mind, Experience Choice Certificates® make the perfect gift!

Unattended reservations for experiences held cannot be rescheduled and the value of the original Experience Certificate(s)® will be forfeited. Experience Certificates® cannot be exchanged or refunded once a reservation for the experience has been made. Experience Days® is not responsible in any way for any appointments made directly with any Service Provider.
What dates are available? Availability for each activity is different due to factors such as weather and seasonality which may affect the Service Providers ability to operate. The most up to date information regarding experience availability can be found on each experience product page or by calling an Experience Days® Customer Service Representative at 866-973-7436. We do our best to secure preferred dates for all customers. Reservation requests for Experience Certificates® must be sumbitted a minimum of fourteen (14) days in advance. We recommend submitting the reservation requests twenty (20) days in advance for weekends or holiday periods and/or experiences with limited availability.
Once a reservation has been confirmed there is a $20 processing fee* to make any changes to the date and time reserved or to re-activate the Experience Certificate® or Experience Choice Certificate®. Changes to reservations can only be made prior to the cancellation period for the experience reserved. (*Fees may be higher for certain experiences. Please contact us if you have any questions regarding reservation change/cancellation fees for an experience.) Experience Days® may, for reasons beyond our control, need to cancel a reservation made for an experience. We will notify the redeemer of the Experience Certificates® as soon as possible in such cases and offer all available alternatives. We do not refund any expenses incurred relating to the canceled reservation.

I've found an experience for a lower price on another site, do you price match? We aim to provide the best products and service wherever possible.

Will my experience take place in bad weather? Due to the nature of many experiences, participation may be dependent upon the weather. The experience description and reservation confirmation will include advice about weather-related cancellations by the Service Provider. It is the responsibility of the Participant(s) to confirm their reservation with the Service Provider if there are any issues or questions related to weather on the day of the reservation. Provision of the experience is at the sole discretion of the Service Provider. Participants will be able to re-schedule any experience(s) cancelled by the Service Provider due to weather related issues.
Can I use any remaining credit with Experience Days® to pay for merchandise or extra services from the Service Provider on the day of my experience? Any remaining credit you may have is stored online with Experience Days® and can only be used for the purchase of another Experience Certificate® or Experience Choice Certificate®. Unfortunately, this credit cannot be used with any of our Service Providers.
Can I change the date of my reservation after it has been scheduled? Once a reservation has been confirmed there is a $20 processing fee* to make any changes to the date and time reserved. Changes to reservations can only be made prior to the cancellation period for the experience reserved. (*Fees may be higher for certain experiences. Please contact us if you have any questions regarding reservation change/cancellation fees for an experience.)
