    My girlfriend bought me this hot air balloon ride for Christmas last year. And on the fourth booking we finally went up. It was an absolutely amazing experience and I would recommend it to anyone. The pilot and staff were very welcoming and amazing at the jobs that they do.

    I was so angry with the inflexible attitude of Bailey Balloons Bristol. Champagne flight was gifted to me and my partner for a ‘big birthday’ present by my daughters. Voucher was dated 6th August 2018. We wanted to take the flight in the summer so duly booked up for a flight

    Many thanks for taking the time to write a review. We feel reviews are a great help to prospective customers and as such, should be accurate and honest. We are a family run business that has won awards for customer care and take every negative review or complaint very seriously. We have been flying passengers in the South west for over 20 years and are the largest independent balloon company in this area with 9 balloons scheduling flights daily from April to October flying many thousands of passengers each season. Our website does advise that the main flying season for scheduled flights is from April to October. All our flight vouchers are valid for 12 months so whatever time of year you purchase a voucher, you will always have a full flying season to take the flight. We do ask for a minimum commitment of 5 bookings from our passengers within the life of their voucher. If we must cancel all 5 bookings due to unsafe flying conditions, we happily offer to extend the vouchers on a month by month basis to allow you to continue trying to fly. In the event that you have not secured 5 bookings prior to the expiry of your voucher, we do offer the option of a heavily reduced rate to renew the voucher for another 3 months or 12 months. We encourage flight bookings to be made three/four weeks in advance – longer if for a weekend or bank holiday. As ballooning is a popular activity, availability can be very limited if you wait until closer to the flight date to make a booking and especially so when we are right in the peak of the season. All the above information is clearly communicated at the time the vouchers are purchased. We are fully aware that sometimes the person purchasing the vouchers, is not the final recipient of the voucher. When flight vouchers are purchased, we send the purchaser an email which includes all relevant information for taking the flight. We advise at the time of purchase that it is very important that this information is passed on to the recipient of the vouchers. We also state this in clear writing on the email sent. We make the booking good faith that this information will be passed on. Upon review of our flight schedule I can see there have been over 141 flights scheduled since 1st of April this year in your chosen area. Unfortunately, we have only had one attempt made by you to fly. In order to be fair to all passengers that have made the required number of attempts to fly – some making more than required, we are unable to offer to extend your voucher on a complimentary basis. We appreciate our passengers’ frustrations when flights are cancelled however, the safety of our passengers and crew is our number one priority. We have a safety record that we are very proud of and we make every effort to ensure it stays this way. The offer remains open to you to extend your vouchers for the fee advised of £50.00 per person. Our standard ticket price is £140.00 and so this is a heavily reduced cost. This will give you an additional 12 months to use your voucher that was gifted to you. Thank you Bailey Balloons
