We do not guarantee that services will be available at your preferred date and time.

Voucher expiry and extension

No refunds will be issued in the event that you are unable to have the service performed due to unavailability of bookings.
Livingsocial will only refund vouchers in accordance with its Refunds Policy.

Restaurant specific vouchers
For the purposes of this section, a "Restaurant" will mean any merchant that offers food and / or beverage for sale in its regular business.
Restaurant vouchers will be 'dine-in' unless otherwise stated.
Restaurant vouchers do not include a tip or gratuity. If appropriate, you may wish to add a tip or gratuity in addition to use of the voucher.
Unless the deal specifically provides otherwise, accommodation vouchers must be used over one contiguous period. For example, if a voucher entitles you to four nights at a resort, those four nights must be used consecutively - you cannot use two nights over one period, and then two nights over another period.
Unless otherwise stated orders will be delivered during normal business hours between 8am and 5pm and need to be signed for. It is a good idea to enter a delivery address at which someone will be present to accept the goods at this time; for example your workplace. If there is no one present at the delivery location who is entitled to accept and sign for the delivery, a card will be left in your letterbox informing you about the incomplete delivery and where to pick your parcels up. Parcels will usually be available for pick up at your nearest Post Office for 7 days unless you are informed otherwise.
In cases where the parcel is not picked up or has an incorrect delivery address, the item will be returned to Livingsocial. We will attempt redelivery once the delivery address has been confirmed, subject to a redelivery fee, or else pay a credit refund on returned items. We do not provide bank refunds on returned items or postage costs of returned items.
If the product has been damaged in transfer, please inform Livingsocial immediately and provide pictures if possible.
Please note that Livingsocial offers you the ability to request parcels to be left at your nominated delivery address. Livingsocial takes no liability for any loss or damage that may be caused as a result of the product being left at the nominated address.
