Experiences are booked directly with Virgin Experience Days’ suppliers who fulfil your experience. So the booking instructions will advise you to book directly with them, whether this be via their own online booking portal, by email or by phone. We recommend booking as far in advance as possible to ensure you get your preferred date, but the product information will tell you the recommended lead booking time for your exact experience. All experiences must be booked and taken before their expiry date.
