When purchasing a guided tour or classes such as a fishing expedition, golf or skydiving, make sure to find out if reservations are required, whether there are any restrictions, special time requirements or expiration date.
If you purchase a gift card, buy directly from the retailer and find out if it can be used both in-store and online.
