“Red Letter Day Wing-Walking Experience Flop”

Written on: 05/05/2021 by Cotswold_Custards (1 review written)

I purchased a RLD wing-walking experience in Cirencester for my husband in June 2019 for approx £380 (a reduction of about £70 in the sales that RLD were offering at the time).

This was extended in June 2020 (due to covid), until Feb 2021 (don't know why it wasn't extended for the whole 12 months, particularly considering we're in the middle of a global pandemic). We tried to book and the online system wouldn't allow us to book. We also tried to extend the ticket again online system but it wouldn't allow us to, so I contacted them by phone and no one seems to answer. I also contacted them by email, and someone responded to say that they no longer provide the wing-walking experiences, but they can provide an exchange.

My husband have wanted to do wing-walking for a very long time, as he used to parachute out of planes. He's not interested in any other experiences, so we aren't interested in anything else. Plus, when I checked on the RLD website, they do still have the wing-walking experiences, but charged at the higher rate of £459. I wouldn't have booked the wing-walking experience, if I'd known that it was going to be this difficult to book.

RLD have already been provided will the booking confirmation evidence, the voucher and security number codes, so it really shouldn't be this difficult to book this expensive experience in.

We wouldn't recommend booking through RLD, as there's no response to phone calls, and our experience demonstrates that the customer service has not been honest about the experiences that are available. There are plenty of other vendors, plus you can cut out the middle-man, and book direct (which is what we'll be doing in the future).
