Owner told us we could not use our Groupon until September or that we should pay an extra 15 euro per person. We arrived in Porto Cesario on holiday on Saturday, 21/08/2021 looking at the surroundings on Gmaps a Groupon add for this trip popped up, the reviews were amazing so I booked 2 tickets for my partner and myself. We tried to book directly after, using the number given on the Groupon voucher but unfortunately did not get a reply, we tried calling again on Sunday, still no reply, but understandable. On Monday after calling 5+ times we finally get in contact with the boat company and they tell us that they can’t take us on our trip until mid September!!! UNLESS WE PAY AN EXTRA 15 EURO PER PERSON AND THEN THEY COULD ACCOMMODATE US. Since then I have tried to phone back to resolve the situation but they don’t respond to the phone any more. I feel sad as it looks like an amazing trip but also angry that booking though Groupon seems to be a bit of a farce/scam.

Response from amaresalento, Direttore vendite at A Mare Salento

Good evening, the regulations on our Groupon voucher are explained clearly: our shipping company, that is for the next few days in overbooking, sells two Groupon tickets at a reduced price per every minicruise every day. It means that if other two clients like you have already bought the voucher by Groupon and already booked the tour by phone, the seats dedicated to Groupon are not available for that date in one of the three minicruises that we make per day. The remaining seats, that are still reserved currently for the next days, can normally be booked paying the entire amount that is 7.10 euros more expensive than the Groupon voucher per person. In this case, you can ask Groupon to give you back your money. If you had read properly what is written on the Groupon voucher, probably you would not have given this bad and not fair feedback to a tour you have not participated in. Regards
