For those who are still a little undecided on which experience to select, monetary vouchers in four different currencies can be purchased to spend on food, beverage or overnight accommodation when visiting any of the hotels.
Purchased online or at all the hotels, Experience Vouchers are beautifully presented with a personalised voucher and brochure wallet which can be sent directly to the recipient by post, email or can be purchased within the hotels.

Alexandra Withers, Director of Marketing for Red Carnation Hotels says 'The SK Chase web-based gift voucher system is incredibly flexible to administer and more importantly, very easy to use for the customer. We're increasingly asked to arrange gift vouchers for guests, therefore this new system which features over 100 experiences at all of our thirteen hotels allows us to sell the perfect gift of elegant luxury, personalised service and only the very best of everything at Red Carnation. We're delighted with the system and look forward to adding more experiences for our guests to enjoy in the future."
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
