- Why Barracudas?
You can use childcare vouchers as full or part payment. You can either book online and select this option or notify us over the phone. Either way your booking will save on our system for 7 days until we receive your childcare vouchers. After this date, if we haven't received payment for your booking it will be automatically removed.
However, if you are booking within 21 days of the booking start date you will be required to pay by a credit*/debit card at the time of booking and then be reimbursed once we receive your childcare vouchers.
*Credit card payments are subject to a 2% surcharge fee up until the 13th January 2018, thereafter credit card charges won't apply in line with the new guidance. (Surcharges cannot be refunded.)
We use the childcare voucher companies listed below, but we will always add a new one if you use another provider. Contact your childcare voucher company to forward the payment to us, quoting your customer or booking ID as a reference. This payment can take up to 7 days to reach us, so in the meantime your booking will remain as a 'provisional' booking. Once we have been notified of your payment we will confirm your booking with an email. If you are unsure how to proceed please call us on 0845 123 5299 and we can run through the process.

Tax Free Childcare
You can pay in part or in full with Tax Free Childcare in pretty much the same way as Childcare vouchers. If you book online select the ‘pay with childcare vouchers’ option, or just let us know this is how you want to pay if you book over the phone. Your booking will be saved for 7 days. If we haven’t received the funds by this time your booking will be removed and you’ll need to book again.
Due to the way we receive the funds, you will need to notify us once the payment has been confirmed to you. We will need the long reference number, your booking ID and the date requested. We’ll then be able to identify the payment and apply it to your account. Please email these details to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are booking within 21 days of the booking start date, you’ll need to pay in full by card at this time. You can still pay with Tax Free Childcare by applying as usual and notifying us of the payment details once these are confirmed. We will refund you once we receive the funds.
