Save Tons of Dough

Our Annual "Gift Certificate" Program

This is the 10th year we are offering this money-saving option to our customers who want to plan in advance but have not yet settled on dates or a final program. You can give yourself a "gift certificate," which is really a prepayment that you can buy at a discount.

You can save plenty on future Purple Dragon travel, even if you have not chosen dates, made a reservation or even decided where you want to go! It's very easy... Buy a Purple Dragon Gift Certificate we will give you a discount on the face value. Diamond Members also Purple Bonus Points automatically!

Why are we doing this? This will be the 10th year in a row we have offered reduced prices for Members who plan well in advance. Last minute reservations are more difficult for us to handle, take far more time, and lead to disappointment since we are often not able to give our guests the hotels and flights they want. So by popular demand we offer this program that would reward our  Members while also offering the maximum flexibility.

There are two "seasons"  for gift certificates. For travel from October 2018 through March 2019. For this period you must finalize your gift certificate purchase by 20 April 2018.

For travel from April through September 2019.  For this period you must finalize your gift certificate purchase before 15 December 2018. You can make travel arrangements with us when you decide on the dates and itinerary you want.

The next periods, which covers travel from October 2019 through March 2020. For this period you must finalize your gift certificate purchase by 15 April 2019.

THE FINE PRINT: Gift Certificates are available to Club Sanook Members only. Gift Certificates can be used by the buyer or given as a gift. Gift Certificates can not be used in payment for airfares, Bhutan, or overnight cruises, in combination with other discounts (except Phuket Leisurely, Bangkok Leisurely, Leisurely Angkor, or Chiang Mai Leisurely Member-only packages, and one-time discounts for Diamond Club Sanook Members), or when reservations are not made directly through Purple Dragon. Certificates can be redeemed for travel arrangements scheduled for travel during either of the two periods shown above. However,  Gift Certificates cannot be applied to travel arrangements that have already been reserved before purchase of the Gift Certificate(s). No part of a Gift Certificate is refundable. Club Sanook Diamond Members may redeem accumulated Purple Bonus Points and apply the value of a Gift Certificate as payment for the same booking. If you do not use the entire face value of a Gift Certificate, the remaining balance will be held as a credit through April 2018. You may transfer a credit of no more than 25% of the face value of the Gift Certificate to someone else if you cannot use it yourself, although it must be used within the designated period of validity. Cancellation penalties described in Purple Dragon's standard terms and conditions apply to Gift Certificates the same as any other form of payment. You may pay for your Gift Certificate by Paypal, Visa, Master Card, American Express, or by cash transfer. A discount of 2% applies if you pay by bank transfer. Purple Bonus Points will be applied to the Diamond Member's account after the Gift Certificate is redeemed and travel completed.
