Please read this update carefully and in full.

I am delighted to tell you that your unforgettable hot air balloon ride over the Cotswolds will now take place with Virgin Balloon Flights.
After many happy years flying passengers, unfortunately the current COVID-19 situation has resulted in me having to retire from the ballooning business.
To ensure that all of you still enjoy the flight you have been looking forward to, I have on your behalf secured a deal with Virgin Balloon Flights who has agreed to take on Cotswold Balloon Safaris passengers with a valid flight voucher.
The UK’s largest balloon operator, Virgin Balloon Flights has been flying its big red balloons alongside me in the Cotswolds for many years.
Their local pilots are some of the most experienced in the world and are looking forward to taking you up, up and away on your airborne adventure.

To register your flight voucher with Virgin Balloon Flights, please contact them one of the ways below:
Phone: 01952 212750 (Open 9am to 5pm, Monday - Friday)
Post: Virgin Balloon Flights, Jesson House, Stafford Court, Telford, Shropshire TF3 3BD

They will need your voucher number(s), passenger names and your full contact details.
Once your voucher has been verified, they will issue you with a brand new Virgin Balloon Flights voucher and security code, valid for a full 18 months and with full instructions on how to book your next flight.

**Please note that if you have previously booked or purchased a private balloon flight with Cotswold Balloon Safaris, these vouchers are not being transferred to Virgin Balloon Flights and we will be in touch with you directly to explain what will happen with your flights.**
