bullet

Any pre-paid NZV8 Race Experience Gift Vouchers may however be able to be "transferred" and may be physically utilised and undertaken by anyone other than the named original participant... provided that the voucher is still valid, hasn't expired and all applicable operational terms, conditions and requirements are fully complied with.

bullet

Any and all pre-paid NZV8 Hot Lap Gift Vouchers are able to be "upgraded" and utilised towards the participant undertaking either of our NZV8 Race Drive Experience options, with the additional payment of the applicable extra cost at the time of confirming the booking date/time directly with us.

bullet

Any and all pre-paid NZV8 Race Experience Gift Vouchers are able to be "upgraded" and utilised towards the participant undertaking either of our longer 8-Lap (DRIVE2 Option) OR 12-Lap (DRIVE3 Option) NZV8 Race Drive Experience, with the additional payment of the applicable extra cost at the time of confirming the booking date/time directly with us.

bullet

Any Gift Vouchers that are purchased directly through any other "resellers" of our NZV8 Race Experience products are issued directly by the resellers and any payments that you have previously made, have been physically made directly to the individual resellers... Not to NZV8 Race Experience.

bullet

In respect of any vouchers that have been issued by any resellers, you must fully comply with ALL of the applicable terms & conditions of the issuing resellers in order for them to be validated... Additionally, you will also need to fully comply with all of our own NZV8 Race Experience standard operational terms & conditions
(Which are as published and updated from time to time upon our NZV8 Race Experience website)

bullet

Any vouchers that have not been redeemed, undertaken and fully completed by their physical expiration date are unfortunately invalidated and are entirely non-usable and non-refundable.

bullet

The NZV8 Race Experience booking must have been previously confirmed & the activity must be fully completed upon one of our available pre-programmed event dates, prior to the expiry date of any voucher...

bullet

Please don't even bother asking if we can just "bend" or "ignore" our standard operating terms & conditions, due to you being "busy", or you "forgot", or some other pressing issue you may personally have...   
(If you fail to attend as required or you just don't get around to using it... then sorry, you lose it)

bullet

In respect of any pre-paid vouchers that you may have chosen to purchase thru any entirely separate "resellers" of our products, please be aware that any and all payments that you may have already made, have actually been made to the voucher "resellers" and not directly to NZV8 Race Experience.
In the event that the voucher resellers subsequently fail to physically make payment to NZV8 Race Experience for our driving services (due to their liquidation or any other failure occurrence on their part) then one of the two following options will become immediately applicable:
(1)    If the "resellers financial failure" is prior to your activity being physically completed...
-    Then their non-paid "resellers" voucher will become immediately invalidated, you will not be able to physically undertake the activity
-    You would then also need to subsequently deal directly with the "reseller" voucher issuer directly in respect getting refunded back any money that you may have already paid directly to the "reseller".
-    You could however rearrange and reconfirm your activity booking by rebooking and paying NZV8 Race Experience for it directly.
(2)    If the "resellers financial failure" is subsequent to your physically having already completed your booked and programmed drive activity...
-    Then any subsequent non-payment to NZV8 Race Experience for the driving services that you had already physically received directly from us will leave you personally liable to NZV8 Race Experience for the outstanding and unpaid fees for the service that you have already physically received.
-    You would then also need to subsequently deal directly with the "reseller" voucher issuer directly in respect of getting refunded back any money that you may have already paid directly to the "reseller".

bullet

This type of financial failure and/or liquidation of "voucher resellers" and "cheap deal voucher providers" is not unheard of in New Zealand and can leave their voucher holders substantially out of pocket and unable to redeem their then worthless vouchers...
Example:
-    In January 2010, Total Experience went into a voluntary liquidation and virtually all the money "disappeared" which left thousands of their Total Experience voucher holders without their money and also without the ability to redeem their then totally worthless vouchers.
(EG: "If you choose to book and pay directly with a travel agent and the travel agent then goes bust... Then it is not the airlines nor the island resorts responsibility to give you flights and accommodation that they have never been paid for")
-    Choosing to make and pay for your bookings directly with the actual "service provider" eliminates the middle man and subsequently minimises the likelihood of this type of thing detrimentally affecting you.
