Th face value isn't the same as what you paid for them though, is it?:confused3

I seem to remember someone saying they used theirs at face value and it came to 104E for for adults, which makes it 26 each.

I think the face value of HBplus was 25 Euros adult and 11 Euros child, when we went in January.

I may be completely wrong but I don't think they have altered the face value just the price we pay in GBP, due to the fact that it depends on the exchange rate on the day that they set the prices for the next period.

I know they were extremely good value when we went as by paying 88 in advance for 4 adults and 2 kids we had 122euros worth of vouchers. Going on the prices above it would now cost me 96.40 for the same vouchers. So still a good saving with exchange rate as it is.

Thats what I'm not sure of the face value of the premium vouchers? :confused3

08-04-2009, 10:44 AM
Just a thought but I'm sure in the small print 'terms and conditions' in the back of the current brochure it says what the exhange rate was on the day they set the prices. Maybe by using that exhange rate and converting the GBP into euros and then adding on 15% (what they reckon you can save up to by purchasing the vouchers) you'd get a rough idea of the face value? Or look on the irish site where it is qouted in euro's - surely their euro price must be less than the face value for them to save the 15%:confused3 (not got my brochure to hand and can't get into my e-brochures at moment otherwise I'd have a look for you)

I may be completely wrong and it wont work like that tho' :lmao:

Not much help am I really :rotfl2: I know when I asked on the the phone they were very vague about the face value and just kept quoting the price of the vouchers in GBP:confused3

08-04-2009, 10:48 AM
That works out quite a saving really then. I paid 257 for 3 adults and 3 kids for days HB+.
Going on those face values, they will be worth 324E. Oh hang on is that much of a saving? Now I'm confused:confused3:confused3:confused3

08-04-2009, 10:58 AM
No not much of a saving as 257 is 301E so only about 23E saved between 6 people!

A 15% saving off the 324E face value should be 48.6E but I am only saving 23. Have I been ripped off!!!:sad2:

They catch you in the wording I think it is 'a saving up to 15%' Don't quote me on this but it has been mentioned before in a thread :sad2:

08-04-2009, 11:31 AM
Yes it was me who mentioned the face value and saving in another thread. We worked out at our eateries we'd save around 6 euros per adult - not sure about our one child using them. So nowhere near 15% - as Buttercup says, it's up to 15% so even saving 1 or 2 euros is a saving :rolleyes1

Tbh I'm not sure I'd bother with them again - it also of course depends on where you choose to eat, if you go to the 'Premium', Premium restaurants then you will save more but I feel some of those restaurants aren't suitable for my 1 yo and 4 yo....

Buttercup - if you find out you'll have to let me know about the face value - will be interesting to know ;)

08-04-2009, 11:38 AM
Yep definately the way they word it - up to15% saving!

I wasn't even going to bother getting the HB vouchers when I orginally booked as the exchange rate was aroung 1.4 -1.5 (way back last summer!!) but just before we went the exchange rate had dropped and it was near enough 1 to 1 so it worked out a very good deal for us then. So at the time 88 = 88 euros but gave me 122 euros in vouchers for each day, so an extra 34 euros a day for food!!

Apart from the savings we made by getting them, the main thing for us was having to take less cash! It meant that all of our main meals were covered, only time I had to pay extra was for additional drinks in Lucky Nugget. I didn't have to keep checking I still had enough cash for the meals for the next 3 days etc when I wanted to buy something in the shops;) As we were there for 5 nights the vouchers cost us 440, but having looked at where we wanted to eat I was budgeting on taking around 650 for food with me. The vouchers meant I had less cash to carry around but almost 200 extra spending money

Haven't bought them yet for the Sept trip but will be - mainly for the convenience of knowing the meals are paid for and any cash we have can be spent on other things rather than the savings we'll make:thumbsup2

Not really an answer to your question but I know some people have wondered recently if Walts is worth a premium voucher

We ate there last night and had the more expensive of the 2 set menus (about 37Euros I seem to remember) and it was a wonderful meal. We didnt have vouchers but if this is what you get with the premium voucher it would be definitely worth it.

The childrens meal cost 10,50 and the temagers 14,10

My understanding was that you gained a better saving if you used them against the set menus rather than using them at face value:confused3 I'm wondering though whether they offer a better saving than AP discount? With AP getting 10% off would I be better doing this way than buying HB.

We got HB premium for our July trip and these represented good value for our meal choices. As I wouldn't want to do BBWWS or Auberge again I was going to go for HBplus this time.

Last week we were told our vouchers (half board plus) for 4 adults were 104 euros, we ate at Cafe Mickey, Annettes (twice), Chuck Wagon, Restaurant des Stars, Hunters Grill (twice), Inventions and Walts.

Ok I've been doing some sums -

HBplus 19.60 has a face value of 26 euro (22.18) = saving of 2.58

26 euro - 2.60 euro (10% AP discount) = 23.40 euro (19.96)

I make this a saving of 36pence:eek: Without even considering the free kir or soft drink you get with AP.

I'm going to have a look and see what the price of set menu's are but considering this I don't think I'll opt for HB.
