Provisional Bookings, Payment and Cancellation
Provisional reservations may be held for 7 days if the scheduled date of tour departure is more than 28 day away. Full payment is required at the time of confirmation. Payment may be made by credit card (Visa or Mastercard), cheque (NZ only) or by telegraphic transfer to Westpac New Zealand (please contact us for account details). Bookings cancelled more than 21 days in advance of scheduled departure incur no cancellation charges. Cancellations between 21 and 2 days of scheduled departure incur a fee of 10% of the total booking cost. Bookings cancelled within 48-hours of scheduled tour departure are non-refundable. No refund is available for cancelled or unused tour portions after the tour has commenced.
New Zealand law stipulates that children must be appropriately carried and secured in all road vehicles. Thus children may not be carried in our vehicles as ‘lap passengers’ and must be carried in appropriate child-designated seating (e.g. baby or child/booster-seats), which we will be pleased to supply on demand. Children under 12-years of age thus occupying a seat on one-day tours pay 80% of the appropriate adult rate. On overnight tours children under 12-years of age who share a room with two adults pay 50% of the published tour price. For overnight tours family room rates are frequently available, please discuss this with us at the time of booking.
A continental breakfast is included in the cost of all overnight tours. Unless expressly stated no food or refreshments are otherwise included in any tour.
