Taster Vouchers

Sunsoar have had a very successful association over the past few years with voucher companies. Many customers come back to continue with paragliding.

However there are some important things of which you should be aware.

The first thing is that paragliding is very weather dependent and therefore it is normal for students to need to call a few times before they hit the jackpot and get a suitable day. You can find further information on this and the chances of flying on this website. Please check this out.

The second thing which is closely related is that you must call in on the day of your course. This is to re-check the weather on the day and also to confirm that you are coming --we book and pay instructors according to the number of students booked on the day. If you book and do not call then you risk forfeiting the day.

We have had clients who did not call to book their day until just before the expiry date of their vouchers. We have been quite lucky in recent years with occasional good days in October but some people simply ran out of time. So we recommend you get in touch as soon as possible to schedule a day earlier rather than later.This will give you up to seven months of weekends to come out. Be as available as possible and book early to give yourself more chances then you will have a day to remember!

I Have a voucher, what do I do now?

Thank you for selecting a Sunsoar Paragliding Experience, The next move is to e mail us with either a copy of your voucher or the number of the voucher and security/pin number. We will respond and attach a Sunsoar booking form for you to complete and return. Once we receive this (not until then) you become a customer of Sunsoar Paragliding. We will then confirm with all the details and the procedure you will need for your day. 

We can run experience days on any weekend day or also on weekdays provided there are at least 4 people. (If you want to come on a weekday please call us and we will try and arrange a group if we can.)

When we have received your booking form we will send back a confirmation letter by email that contains all your joining details, what to bring, map, and critically the ring-in number to call on the morning of your course. You will also be entered on our e mail 'weather list' and you will receive occasional information mid week on the weekend weather ahead so you will have some idea of whether the day is likely to go ahead or not.

Once you have your confirmation all you need to do is ring up around 8.00am on the day you have booked to check the weather is OK (we don’t want to waste your time coming out if it looks wet or windy), then if it is OK we meet at 10am and have a great time introducing you to paragliding!

Note that we cannot accept any booking without the voucher and security number. Please complete and return the downloadable booking form CLICK HERE .

We look forward to seeing you.
