We believe in friendship and that friends want to help each other. Therefore Voice of Friends is designed to work without vouchers. If a company works with Voice of Friends then you can receive a voucher if your friends recommend you this company. It also works the other way around: If you recommend this company and your friend follows your recommendation you will receive a Thank-you voucher.
But remember: A recommendation from a friends is gift enough. A voucher is just the cherry on top of it.
No. They recommend you this place because your friend believes that you will like it. If the company is participating in the Voice of Friends program your friend might receive a Thank-You voucher but only AFTER you have followed his recommendation and have used your Welcome Voucher. He will never receive any money as this can easily ruin your friendship.
The recommended company will define the voucher value. We recommend that companies offer you something special, but special does not mean unsustainable. Please do not expect ridiculously high discounts. Companies can only offer great service if they do it in a sustainable manner.
We believe in fair share and therefore you and your friends will always receive the same voucher value. Anything else might result in your friends "selling" you and we don't want to support that.
If you have received a voucher you just show it to the company staff during your visit.
After you shared the voucher code the company will check the validity and might ask you for your names to ensure it matches and nobody is trying to cheat.

Privacy & Cookies

We take privacy very seriously. As such, only you and your friends can see your personal recommendation. On the global map we will only show the recommended spot but nobody will ever know, who, when and why it was recommended.
No way! We believe that we all have enough emails like "Special deals", "Last Minute" or "Super Offer" in our inbox already. The only message you will receive from us are recommendations from your friends and Thank-You Vouchers for recommendations as well as required information about your account. Nothing else!
No - We believe in privacy and we will not sell or create any consumer profile about you.
No - we believe in direct private communication and your "wall" on other social networks already contains sufficient advertisement.
We believe in communication and sharing among friends. Everyone should know who is making them a recommendation. This will also help to prevent SPAM.
Because we want to prevent that somebody else would use your voucher. For you it would be easy to show a document with your full name but not for the person stealing your voucher.
