What's included

A balloon flight is unlike other forms of flying; your visibility is through 360 degrees and your flight feels uninhibited. A model world appears below, familiar landmarks take on new perspectives, whether you are close to the ground viewing wildlife, or up amongst the clouds marvelling at their powdery appearance, you will be intrigued by this aerial mystery tour.
A Hot Air Balloon moves with the wind direction and whatever the wind speed you feel no movement or breeze, plus you have the radiant heat from the burners; even in mid-winter you are far warmer in the air than on the ground. Binoculars, video or camera are a must. Bring plenty of film.

A Typical Hot Air Balloon Flight
A balloon experience with Ballooning4all is so much more than just showing up, doing it, and going home. For one thing it's a very weather–dependant activity, so the first part is simply to contact the operator a few hours before your scheduled flight to check that it's going ahead today.
If the news is good, soon after arrival you'll be helping the crew ready the balloon for the flight: it has to be laid out first, then it's inflated with a petrol driven fan before the burners are fired up. During the flight you'll be standing very close to the pilot – in relative silence – so it will be easy for him/her to explain what is being done and to point out the local landmarks. The landing is an exciting experience after the serenity of the flight, and then there's the journey back to your launch site – which can be quite a few miles.

Validity / Cancellation
The voucher will remain valid as long as an attempt to book the flight has been made within the 12 month period. You must contact the operator using the details printed on your voucher, to arrange a date for your event prior to the end of the 12 month period expiring.
Balloon flights are in the UK are frequently cancelled due to adverse weather conditions, therefore you may not always be able to fly on your chosen date, a certain degree of flexibility is recommended to allow for the UK climate.
Unless otherwise mentioned in the advertisement, hot air balloon baskets, typically hold up to 6 people, therefore you will be sharing your experience with other passengers, this normally serves to enhance your day out.

Reviews

'Utmost Serenity' by anonymous on 15 July '14.

"The operator was easy to contact and very efficient. The date was easy to arrange and we were lucky enough to have 'lift off' on our first date.
The venue was one and a quarter hours drive away, easily found with ample parking and good facilities and food. The contact found us rather than us having to search them out.
The staff were all very friendly; knowledgable and patient in answering questions and good at getting us all involved. At no stage did we feel rushed.
All the information and instructions were relayed to us in a calm and efficient manner. I felt totally confident in what we were about to embark on and all questions were answered.
From the ground Hot Air Balloons look majestic, graceful, serene and a world away from reality. That is exactly what we experienced with added pleasure to boot! I have already recommended to loads of friends.
After the event we took photos. We could have lingered at the venue afterwards but it was our choice to get our certificates and leave. We got home after midnight ( and start work at 6am).

I hate flying and nobody thought that I would do it but I never felt frightened, just completely awestruck. Loved every minute of it and I was glad that it took us a while to find a suitable landing site as we were longer in the balloon. "
