According to the annual Deloitte consumer survey of Christmas spending books (52%), clothes (49%) and gift vouchers (46%) were the most favoured presents adults in Ireland wanted to receive last year – and this obviously reflects the presents they prefer to buy (books 55%, gift vouchers 55%).
In these recessionary times many people are reluctant to buy vouchers of any kind. However hotel gift vouchers can offer great value for money and make an ideal gift for a loved one. Generally these vouchers are redeemable against a stay, spa treatment or a round of golf depending on the hotel offering, making them an ideal present.
A hotel voucher is a gift that gives the receiver a lot of flexibility to use whatever way they wish. We have a wide choice of cash and package vouchers available at Hotel Deals Ireland so there is something to suit everyone. The majority of them are valid for 12 months from the time of purchase giving the receiver lots of time to plan when to use them.
The convenience of buying hotel vouchers is one of their main advantages. You can choose either postal vouchers for free delivery to yourself or your chosen recipient, or send instant e-vouchers which have the benefit of allowing you to send your voucher immediately if you’ve forgotten to send it earlier.
In these times many hotels offer discounted rates on their vouchers meaning you get a break for less than you would pay online or over the phone, giving you a great reason to purchase. However if you lose a gift voucher, the hotel doesn’t have to replace it. It’s just like losing a bus ticket – or like losing cash – so always keep the voucher somewhere safe.
