FAQs

What is Buckt?

Buckt is the UK’s only tickets and activities subscription box. Every month subscribers get 5 mystery tickets to some of the best attractions and activities in their region.

From axe throwing to alpaca walking,  cinema tickets to sumo suit wrestling(!), each box contains a unique mix of the brilliant and bizarre as well as the tried and tested, expertly put together by the Buckt team.

Tickets are worth an average of £50 per person but costs just £12.50 each, there are no extra costs (all the tickets are included in the price of your subscription) and you can cancel any time.

The business, which is inspired by the idea of a bucket list, aims to help subscribers tick something off their list, to go on an adventure and to fall in love with something new.

Step out of your comfort zone, explore your region like never before, and take on a selection of exciting activities with a Buckt Box.

When will my box be delivered?

Your first box will be dispatched on the last day of the month that you signed up, and should be delivered within three working days.

All future boxes will be dispatched on the last day of the month preceding your box, and should be with you within three working days.

All delivery times are estimates.

When will the payment be taken out?

An initial payment will be taken straight away and this is for your first box, which you will receive at the beginning of the following month.

Your next payment will be taken out on the first day of the month of your next box (i.e. the payment for April’s box will come out on the 1st April).

You will then be charged every month on the first day of the month of your box.

Scenario:

What do I get with a subscription?

You get a Buckt Box delivered directly to your door. Each box contains 5 tickets and activities – things you can go and do in your region.

On average, our boxes include tickets and activities that would on average cost around £40-50 per person if bought separately. So, a Duo Box includes activities that on average would be worth £80-100, but costs just £25. We regularly exceed this, with some boxes being valued at over £100pp.

Delivery is included, and there are no extra fees or hidden costs to complete the activities.

What kind of activities will I receive?

Each box includes a mixture of:

  • ‘Classic’ activities i.e. trampoline parks, escape rooms, cinema, restaurants.
  • High end experiences i.e. drifting experiences, go karting, beauty treatments.
  • Unusual activities that you never would have thought of i.e. rage rooms, sumo suit wrestling, alpaca walking, cooking classes.
  • Hidden gems i.e. quirky gig venues, breweries, new organisations.

How much does Buckt cost?

Buckt costs:

  • £17 for an Individual Box (one person)
  • £25 for a Duo Box (two people)

This includes delivery, and there are no hidden fees or extra charges to complete the activities once you receive your box.

It seems really low cost - are there any hidden charged?

There are no additional charges or hidden fees.

You pay your subscription fee and receive 5 activities that you can go and complete. These activities are all included for the amount you pay for the subscription, and you don’t have to pay anything extra.

How long do I have to complete the activities in my box?

You will have three months to complete all non-date specific activities, however these must be booked in by the last day of the month of your box. 

Example:

If they receive the October box, they will have until the last day of December to complete the non-date specific activities, however must be booked in with the activity provider by 31st October.

Is Buckt a subscription? Will there be future payments?

All individuals that register on our system will be added to a recurring monthly subscription which will continue until cancelled.

The only exception are gifts where the gift purchaser won’t be doing the activities with the gift recipient. The gift recipient will, however, need to register for a subscription to access their pre-paid boxes and this will continue until cancelled.

Can I cancel my subscription? If so, how?

Every subscriber gets put on to a subscription automatically, however you can cancel this at any time. You must give us a weeks notice before your next box is due, and can cancel by emailing sam@buckt.uk.

How many activities can I do? Do I have to do activities that I book in for?

Subscribers can do all five activities in their box, or just the one or two that really take their fancy. All five activities are included for the cost of the box.

Subscribers are encouraged to only book in for the activities that they intend to do. Subscribers who persistently book in for activities and don’t turn up without notifying us risk having their subscriptions terminated.

Where does Buckt operate? Where are the activities?

Please note that Buckt currently only operates in the Greater Birmingham area and Greater Manchester area.

This means that all activities will be within these regions (usually no further than a 20-30 minute drive away from Birmingham City Centre or Manchester City Centre respectively).

If you are from outside this area, you are still more than welcome to subscribe, but please be conscious of where our activities are likely to be.

Be the first to find out about our expansions into new regions by connecting with us on Facebook and Twitter.

Can I buy one-off tickets for activities I want to take friends to?

Subscribers can purchase one-off activities called Bring A Friend Passes (BAF Passes) for certain activities within their box. These are sold at discounted rates that are below RRP.

Can I take someone other than the named second person to activities?

Either the ‘lead subscriber’ or the ‘secondary subscriber’ must be in attendance for every booking. They are free to go together, or take someone else if the other can not attend.

What age is Buckt suitable for? Is it only for those aged 18+?

Buckt is targeted at over 18s. This is because we include a number of activities that are only suitable for this age, such as alcohol related activities or ‘extreme’ activities (e.g. axe throwing).

If you would like to take someone who is under the age of 18 to a suitable activity, you have two options:

  • You can purchase a ‘Bring A Friend Pass’ for the activity. This is a one-off ticket to selected activities that cost less than the RRP.
  • You can use your free tickets included with your subscription for the child.

Please note that as Buckt is targeted at over 18s, we do not provide information about age-restrictions for each activity nor do we ask for this information when you register to book. It is therefore up to the subscriber to identify this before purchasing a BAF Pass/booking in. Buckt cannot be held responsible for subscribers who book places for those under 18 and get refused entry if the activity is not suitable.

There's talk of Buckt being inspired by the idea of a bucket list. What does this mean?

The idea was originally inspired by our founder’s bucket list. It contained 100 activities – both big cliche bucket list activities, and small personal challenges.

Our founder Dan, spoke to different people about their own bucket lists and realised that they weren’t just about ticking things off a piece of paper, but actually pushing yourself to the limit, falling in love with something new, having an escape from routine and ultimate living life to its fullest.

These ideas encapsulate what Buckt is about. We want people to try new and exciting things; things they’ve never done before or even thought about doing. But actually, we want subscribers to have an escape from the humdrum of life. We want subscriber to find something that they enjoy and fall in love with it. We want subscribers to create unique memories that stick with them forever.

These were the things that motivated Dan to write his list, and have motivated him to complete what’s on it.

How can you deliver 'activities in a box'?

Easy peasy. Each box that you receive contains a specially-designed booklet that tells you what activities you can go and do during that month, as well as information on how you ‘access’ these activities. For example, you may need to book with us, we may provide physical tickets inside the booklet, or you may need to book directly with the activity provider.

Do you have a package specifically for businesses?

Yes! Our corporate offer is £12.50 per box for 5 activities. These boxes can be distributed to staff as rewards, can be used together as staff nights out or given to clients as a ‘thank you’ gift.

If I can't find exactly what I want or have any specific requests, can I contact you?

Yes! We’re more than happy to take specific requests and we will try to accommodate you to the best of our ability/as much as is practically possible. Please email sam@buckt.uk with any questions.
