The experience sites offering voucher extensions due to COVID-19

Here's how you can postpone your experience by up to 12 months.

We’re reader-supported and may be paid when you visit links to partner sites. We don’t compare all products in the market, but we’re working on it!

As a result of the coronavirus pandemic and the travel bans in place, these are the experience sites offering voucher extensions on validity periods.

We are continuously updating this page with the companies that are following suit in extending voucher expiration dates. So be sure to check back for the latest information.

1. Groupon

If you've got a voucher or booked in an experience, Groupon is offering a 12-month extension whenever possible on its vouchers.

You will be contacted by Groupon via email with the expiration date if your voucher is eligible for expiration extension. If by the end of March you still haven't received an email, contact Groupon's customer support.

2. Adrenaline

Adrenaline vouchers coming to an end can be extended by up to 90 days, free of cost.

In normal circumstances voucher extensions would cost customers $30, but due to the coronavirus pandemic this fee has been waived.

New bookings or voucher purchases are valid for three years.

3. Cudo

Cudo is also updating its policy on expiration extension. It is working with vendors to extend the validity of vouchers.

The recommendation is if you have two or more months left on the voucher, that you hold onto the voucher and book for a later date.

However, if you have booked an experience and would like to move it to a later date you can do so by managing your booking on the website. If the voucher is two weeks from expiration, contact Cudo directly to have it extended.

New bookings or voucher purchases are valid for three years.

4. RedBalloon

RedBalloon is no longer applying the extension fee to its experience vouchers.

You can extend your voucher within 90 days of its expiration date depending on whether it was purchased before or after 31 October 2017. RedBalloon will extend on a case-by-case basis so you're best to get in contact with its customer service.

In normal circumstances, the fee would be $25. New bookings or voucher purchases are valid for three years.
