Why Gift Employees an Experience?

We’re firm believers that the power of great gifting comes through giving experiences.  Experience gifts are about making space for new discoveries, quality time together, with amazing stories to tell after going on the experience.

Experiences are memorable – anyone who goes on one remembers it for years to come and they always appreciate whom they received it from. They cost less than you might think, and their perceived value is much higher than a cash reward (meaning you can make your employees happier for less)  

With a Virgin Experience Days Gift Card you can help your people tick off a bucket list dream and you can give them the freedom to choose which experience they’d like to treat themselves too.

Here are some of the perks you can expect from gifting a Virgin Experience Days Gift Card:

Huge Range, 3000+ experiences

Meaningful connections are strengthened through trying new things together, and we have over 3,000 experiences to choose from. We’re proud to offer experiences all over the UK, from stargazing in rural Wales and watersports on Scotland’s Loch Lomond to the hottest city dining destinations, hotel breaks to adrenalin fuelled indoor skydiving, at Virgin Incentives we’ve got it all, and you can gift it. We are constantly on the lookout for the most exciting new experiences, striving to stay ahead of the curve to give our customers exactly what they want.

Book at Your Own Leisure

Our experiences do not come with a pre-booked date. The Virgin Experience Days gift card itself is valid for 12 months and depending on the specific experience, your team receives an additional 6, 9, or 12 months to book the actual experience. For example, if someone fancied an introductory flying lesson, this is valid for 9 months, so they have 12 months to redeem their Virgin Experience Days Gift Card and a further 9 months to book and take their introductory flying lesson.

Most of our experiences have a long validity period, so your teams will have plenty of time and can enjoy looking forward to a treat of their own choice.

It’s Free to Swap Your Experience

Our free exchanges policy means swapping to a different experience is hassle-free. If the exchange for something of less value, the remaining balance can be used to process a second exchange. Our friendly Customer Service Team is always on hand to help your teams with any free exchange requests.

We Do All the Admin

You’ll have your own corporate account manager, who will look after you all the way. You can simply place the order and leave in it the dedicated hands of our corporate team and they’ll take care of the order processing and fulfilment along with any delivery requirements.


That’s right, if you’re looking to place repeat orders and would like to regularly work with us as your key rewards and recognition partner, we’re nice people and may be able to consider a corporate discount for you.

By gifting your employees an experience, you are giving them a live moment that becomes a lifelong memory and something for them to look forward to. Experiences are fun, forever and such an inspiration for everyone.
