Days Out-Rageously Cheap

Press release   •   Jul 09, 2014 11:41 BST

There’s now an enjoyable day out ‘just around the corner’ for every Nectar cardholder who wants to spend their points at new Nectar partner, Go Ape, or at over 100 local attractions across the country.

As well as the UK’s number one Forest Adventure, Go Ape, Nectar points can now be spent at a host of independent and local venues, including The National Trust of Scotland and even the music making Songmaker experiences.

Cardholders can simply swap their Nectar points online for vouchers entitling them to money-off exciting attractions all over the UK, helping to cut the cost of summer trips and experiences. So whether it is go-karting in South Wales, spotting wildlife in Hertfordshire or trying out climbing in Yorkshire, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

Will Shuckburgh, Nectar Managing Director said; “Nectar research has shown that summer costs the average family a scorching £1,133* - by adding Go Ape and all of these other exciting days out and attractions, we hope to help families take the heat out of some of that expense. This isn’t just for the summer – these additional partners are here to stay.

“Nectar can now offer greater choice than ever before with the opportunity to spend points on everything from nature trails, castles, zoos and museums, or thrillseeking experiences like go-carting, climbing and even ghost tours.”

Here are just ten top suggestions for fun days out with the family and friends:

·  Longleat Safari & Adventure Park (Wiltshire)

·  Isle of Wight Zoo (Isle of Wight)

·  Go Ape (adventures nationwide)

·  Northern Ireland Segway Experience (Belfast)

·  Adventure Beyond (Wales)

·  Lightwater Valley (North Yorkshire)

·  Songmaker (venues nationwide)

·  Crocodiles of the World (Oxfordshire)

·  Paradise Wildlife Park (Hertfordshire)

·  National Trust of Scotland (24 sites across Scotland)

Savvy day trippers will simply need to log on to the Nectar website to redeem 500 Nectar points for £3.75 worth of admission vouchers against either full or part payment of tickets.

Paul Lymer, Head of Marketing at new Nectar partner, Go Ape said; “With the summer holidays just around the corner, we think that teaming up with Nectar is just the ticket in helping to make Go Ape even more accessible for families across the country. We look forward to welcoming new tribes to live life adventurously with us this summer.”

Go Ape and these new local attractions join existing Nectar partners such as Thorpe Park Resort, PizzaExpress, Madam Tussauds and Vue Cinemas as permanent reward partners, meaning Nectar cardholders can benefit from value for money days out with family and friends all year round.
