Gift Vouchers Steam Packet

Recommended Posts

A friend of mine was given some Steam Packet vouchers at xmas and decided to use them on a day trip to Liverpool this week. After looking on the website for the fair which came out at £25 he realised that the vouchers can only be used when purchasing at the ferry terminal. So down he goes with his vouchers to book his ticket. £37 the girl says. After a few questions exchanged it comes to pass that these vouchers appear to be worthless as they dont qualify for the internet deduction rates. What a con! Most people these days use the website to book their trips. Why can't the vouchers that have a number code on them be used to purchase on the net. Its not rocket science to create a system where these can be used on the net. Anyone else had a similar experience

1. These gift vouchers are unsophisticated bits of paper. They would be wide open to abuse if they were to be accepted as payment over the internet.

 

2. Why do people buy them? It's like giving someone cash, but only allowing them to spend the cash in one shop. And the retailers love them - they take the cash early, and half of them are never redeemed!

It's similar trying to book a van on the SP. They won't let you book on the net for some strange reason so there's automatically a tax on the fare for "not booking on the net." Grrrr

Its a general warning. Don't buy Gift vouchers from them as they are worthless if you want the best available price. The Steam Packet are aware of this problem but do not seem to be bothered sorting the issue out.. More money for them if mugs turn up and ask for gift vouchers.
