Frequently Asked Questions - Video on Demand
We have two different ways to access and view our virtual tours. Some (usually our newsest ones) are available as a scheduled live presentation, delivered at a specific date and time via a Zoom webinar. Others are available to watch anytime, 24/7, within a predefined rental period - we refer to these as Video-on-Demand or VoD.
This website is split into two parts. In the top level website (https://virtualtoursofscotland.com/) you will find an overview of both services and you will also be able find out about and book our scheduled live Virtual Tours delivered using Zoom. There is a Video-on-Demand section of the website (https://vod.virtualtoursofscotland.com/) where you can browse our catalogue of Virtual Tours that are available to rent, which you can view 24/7 during the rental period.
These questions and answers relate to our pre-recorded Virtual Tours of Scotland videos, also known as video-on-demand (VoD) which are available to rent (a bit like on Netflix or Amazon Prime).
Please note that currently, video-on-demand is not available as a subscription service (e.g. monthly or annual); each video or collection of videos is available to rent for a pre-defined period e.g. 1 day, 1 week, 1 month or 3 months). The rental period starts from the date of purchase - NOT from the date you begin viewing.
Please read our Terms of Service page for our Video-on-Demand Virtual Tours, as by paying to rent or subscribe to this service you are agreeing to these terms and conditions.

Also, certain credit/debit cards do not allow for recurring subscription billing, and therefore, may be denied.
