You can do this by either creating a Deals.mu account or logging in with your existing Deals.mu account. You will also be able to review the order details and total order price.

5.2 Please note that the Open Voucher is only valid for use for the relevant product or service for which it was purchased and is valid for the period specified on the package from the day of its purchase; meaning, the package voucher must be redeemed during the package validity period (90 days or until the package expires- depending on the package type). Please note that all reservations are subject to availability and if seasonal rates affect the package, the customer may need to pay the difference.
5.3 In case the customer fails to use the open voucher during the validity period, the open voucher will no longer be of any use or value and it will be void. In case of a void open voucher, the customer will not be entitled to receive any refund or compensation against the payment made to purchase the voucher.
In case the customer still wishes to use the open voucher, but will not be able to within the valid 3-month period, they should inform Deals.mu before the expiration date of the voucher and the voucher date may be extended for a 20% supplement (applicable on the amount paid). This is why we strongly encourage our customers not to wait for the last moment in order to use the open voucher.
5.4 It is in the customer's responsibility to reserve the product or service in advance while providing Deals.mu at least 5 days notice in order to confirm the booking. In case you request to reserve a product or service for a specific date less than 5 days prior to the date on which you would like to redeem your voucher, we cannot guarantee that your reservation will be confirmed. Accordingly, for late reservations requests made during the last 5 days of the open voucher validity period, we cannot guarantee that these reservations will be confirmed or done successfully. In case Deals.mu will not be able to accommodate late reservation requests, the customer will not be entitled to any refund or compensation against the payment made to purchase this voucher. We thus strongly encourage our customers not to wait for the last moment in order to use the open voucher.6.0 Gift Voucher

This option refers to cases in which a product has been booked and reserved by the customer for a specific date (the specific date or time for which the customer is supposed to go on the activity/attractions/service/day package/spa according to the reservation), including i) Cancellation of a product which has been reserved for a specific date as part of the initial order process ; ii) Cancellation of an open voucher / gift voucher after it was used by the customer to reserve a product for a specific date. In both these cases, cancellation charges apply according to the table here below:

|30 days or more before the date of the product||10%|

Where the cancellation charge is shown as a percentage, this is calculated on the basis of the total amount payable by the customer for the cancelled product.
11.9 No refund is available once a booking, tour, spa, day package, activity, attractions, package or service has commenced, or in respect of any package, spa treatment, meal or any other services has already been utilized.
11.10 In case a product is cancelled due to bad weather conditions prior to the start of the activity, we guarantee to all of our customers a Full Refund.
