Please make sure that you are familiar with the location of the experience venue. Get driving directions by following this link.


i have read this and the important notes box, then under this box is another with the address and a link to follow for getting directions, although in the important notes section it has an address, which has to be copied and pasted to get to, i have just presumed the link they have enclosed for the directions is the same thing, so i have followed their link and printed out the directions, directions through google maps, and i have followed them online right to the destination end, where you see some 4x4s training ground, and these directions have pointed this out to be the location,


on arriving here their is no clear signs for the driving experiethere isnce, and their fore i have gone to the club shop and they have explained the woman is further down the road on the right along a dirt track, needless to say i never found this gate or dirt track, after an hour trying to find this place i have given up, a couple houses i have stopped and asked at knew it went on somewhere in the area, but were not sure where exactly it was.


when i have copied and pasted the address in the important notes it is different instructions, where it does take you to the same spot where the 4x4s were, but a closed gate has to be opened then down a long dirt track, although at this spot there is no signs or indications to this,


i have found the boarding pass a bit confusing as it does tell you to follow this link for directions, maybe my own fault for not coping address and pasting, as they now say i missed my slot and nothing can be done, therefore my voucher is now spent,

anyone know where i would stand on this, thanks for any advice

Vouchers are a terrible idea at the best of times and you have been clobbered by something that should have been forseen by the venue. I take it that there was no mobile phone number for a point of contact on the site? If not then this is a poor show from the organisers and I would be making a complaint, firstly to them and secondly to trading standards. The latter wont get you very far but if they have several complaints about the same problem then it can be argued that the company is not fulfilling its obligations in its provision of the facilities offered.
