The Main Event

Join the 70% of people that buy a hot air balloon ride as a gift and win the best gift giver award! 

Find yourself on cloud nine as you enjoy breath-taking panoramic views as far as the horizon from up to 5,000 feet in the air, the only sounds are those of nature and the occasional blast of the burners as you float almost silently and imperceptibly over the land below.

Is there a hot air balloon ride near me, you might ask? There definitely will be as we have the largest choice of locations in the UK market with more than 100 stunning launch sites to choose from across England, Scotland and Wales!

Once you come back down to earth, it's time to toast the hot air balloon experience of a lifetime with your fellow passengers and a celebratory glass of Prosecco and a presentation of certificate signed by your pilot.

Important Bits

Start Time

  • AM - As early as 5am or as late as 8.30am, depending on sunrise times
  • PM - As early as 4pm or as late as 6.30pm, depending on sunset times
  • Day - Anytime between 8am and 3.30pm (selected times of the year)

Hot air balloon rides are scheduled morning and evening, seven days a week during the UK ballooning season, which is March to October. This does vary in some areas and in late October some flights will take place during the day due to limited daylight hours.


You get the same hot air balloon ride experience of a lifetime no matter which voucher you buy - the difference between the three options is when you can use them.

  • Weekday Morning - Morning Flights, Monday to Friday
  • Weekday Morning Or Evening - Morning or Evening Flights, Monday to Friday
  • Any Day Morning Or Evening - Morning or Evening Flights, Monday to Sunday

All bookings are subject to availability and should be made around 6-8 weeks in advance.

Hot air balloon rides are fully weather dependent. If the provider has to cancel your booked flight for this reason, your vouchers are automatically extended to allow enough time to book again. Vouchers are non refundable should the ride be cancelled due to bad weather.


Your voucher is valid for 12 Months from the date of issue.

Please note you must have booked and taken your experience before the expiry date.

Who Can Go

  • Weight supplements apply for those over 20 stone in weight or those over 18 stone and under 6ft tall
  • Anyone aged 7 or over and at least 4ft 6in tall can fly
  • Those aged under 16 must be accompanied by a responsible adult aged 18+
  • If you're pregnant or have recently undergone major surgery, you can't fly in a hot air balloon but the provider will extend vouchers free of charge until you are able to do so.

What about Insurance?

The centres contracted with us hold public liability insurance. We also hold contingency liability cover. You will not be liable for accidental damage to equipment, except where damage has been caused as a result of recklessness or wilful negligence.

A cancellation indemnity, subject to terms, is included with every voucher.

How it Works

All you have to do is pay for the experience you wish to purchase and we’ll send a voucher and booking information to you or directly to the recipient, then you just need to check the info and book your experience.

Great Reviews

  • Not just hot air

    We received this a present and while everyone told us it was an amazing experience we always thought it seemed a little boring. Oh boy did our minds change. Seeing that sunset flying floating over the green hills is truly a memory for a life time.

  • So glad we did this!

    Had to rebook due to a cancellation but in essence, the wait was absolutely justified! The entirety of the experience was utterly fantastic. From the initial rendezvous at Petworth, the hour-long flight, to the landing and even the post-flight assistance in packing up the balloon, it all contributed to an amazing adventure. Would it give 5 out 5 if it wasn't because of the rebooking. The experience itself was a 5 :)

  • Got this as a wedding present

    Well we all know that after a wedding you need a breather so we didn't book for a while but we finally did and went on the ride we were amazed. What a present. Such a lovely experience floating above. Had to get up early but well worth it. The pilot was very professional and nice. He made the experience even better.
