Frequently Asked Question's
A Causes Matter Certificate (VSC) is a PDF document generated for each travel package purchased on a Causes Matter website. If you purchase multiples of the same travel package, you will receive a certificate for each individual purchase. VSC's are emailed to the purchaser after payment is completed - or emailed to the gift recipient if you are purchasing for someone else.
Each VSC contains a unique Redemption Code, which you use to let us know you're ready to book your travel. A VSC must be booked within 12 months of purchase, and your travel must take place within 18 months of purchase.
A VSC is not like a regular travel package where you pick your travel dates right away, instead you have 12 months to decide when you're ready to start planning your vacation. All travel package destinations and accommodations are subject to availability, and operate as first-come first-served. The earlier you can redeem your VSC and start working with our Concierge Team, the more likely it is we will have availability during your preferred travel time.
