FAQ




Some of the most frequently asked questions are shown below. We hope these will be of assistance but if you are still unsure about any aspect of our service, please call our helpline number: 01323 848686 or email sales@vouchers4charity.org.


How do I contact Charity Gift Vouchers?
You can contact us by email at sales@vouchers4charity.co.uk or call our helpline 01323 848686, Monday to Friday 9am - 5pm.

If you have an enquiry about an existing gift voucher order, please be ready to quote your order reference number.
How will I know if my order is placed and being processed?
As soon as you place your order you will receive an email informing you that order has been received and is being processed.

A further email will advise you that your order has been dispatched.
'Query' Orders:
If there is a query with your gift voucher order you will be contacted by email or by telephone.

Typical queries include incomplete delivery addresses or where undelivered goods have been returned to our offices.
'Failed' Orders:
Gift Vouchers are just like cash and we undertake rigorous checks to help reduce the incidence of fraud.

On some occasions we may be unable to proceed with an order. In this case you will be informed by email.

If you feel that your order has been 'failed' unjustly, please place another order on our website using a different form of payment.

Please be aware that we reserve the right not to discuss the reasons why an order might be 'failed'.
How are my vouchers delivered?
We normally use Royal Mail for all our deliveries. Delivery charges vary depending on the amount ordered.

For large consignments of gift vouchers or gift cards we may use a Security Transport company but we will advise you beforehand if this is the case.

You should normally allow 2-3 working days for delivery of your vouchers.

During the peak Christmas period delivery may be delayed and we advise that orders for Christmas are placed in good time.

Please note: The Special Delivery service does not guarantee next day delivery.

What it does guarantee is that your order will be delivered within 24hrs of dispatch.

Please also note, Royal Mail does not deliver on Sundays or Bank Holidays.
What if there is no-one available to sign for the gift vouchers?
The postman will leave a card at the delivery address, informing the occupant that an attempted delivery was made.

The gift vouchers will then be taken to the local Royal Mail Enquiry office where they will await collection by the recipient.

If no collection is made within two weeks the package will be returned to our offices.

At this point we will re-contact the sender to confirm delivery instructions or discuss alternative arrangements.
Where do you deliver to?
We can deliver gift vouchers and gift cards to anywhere in the UK including the Scottish Isles and Channel Islands.

We can also deliver to British Forces Post Offices (BFPO) addresses.

If you require delivery to anywhere other that these areas, please contact our helpline on 01323 848686, Monday to Friday 9am - 5pm, or email sales@vouchers4charity.org.uk .

A limited delivery service will be in operation in the week immediately after Christmas. Also, due to the high volume of orders at Christmas we advise customers to order early for Christmas delivery.
What if I have made a mistake on my order?
If you have made a mistake please call our helpline on 01323 848686, Monday to Friday 9am - 5pm, or email sales@vouchers4charity.org.uk, quoting your order reference number.

We will do our utmost to try and make any necessary changes.
Where can the vouchers be spent?
Gift Vouchers are sold for either specific stores, e.g. Marks & Spencer, or for a multitude of different shops, e.g. Leisure Vouchers which can be spent in a very wide range of different outlets such as Pizza Hut, Saks and Legoland.

Use the search facilities and click the 'More Information' button on each voucher page to insure the voucher you choose can be spent where you want it to be spent.
Do gift vouchers have an expiry date?

However certain vouchers (e.g. Dixons, NEXT, Harvey Nichols) and many gift cards (e.g. Debenhams, House of Fraser) may carry an expiry date, typically 12 or 24 months.

Please refer to the details on the back of each gift voucher or gift card.
