TRAVEL CONDITIONS AND SAFETY
Some tours offered by Aussie Perth Tours may need to satisfy certain weather conditions in order to operate safely and we (Aussie Perth Tours) will not be held liable if a tour is unavailable or cancelled in the event that weather conditions are unsatisfactory.
Aussie Perth Tours do not guarantee exact pick-up or drop-off times and will not be held liable for passenger failure to connect with other services or any associated costs resulting from such delays.
We accept no responsibility for loss, theft or damage to personal belongings or baggage while on any of our tours.
Passenger safety is of paramount importance to us and we endeavour to ensure safe transport at all times. We will not be held liable for any damage, injury, or loss, of any kind, caused by, or resulting from, any act or omission by employees, agents or contractors.
Some tours including an adventure travel option may involve a higher than normal risk and a signed indemnity release form may be required from all passengers before departure or at the time of activity. Aussie Perth Tours accept no responsibility for any loss or damage caused as a result of negligence or omission whatsoever by any partner company whose services are used as part of any tour package, including but not restricted to activity operators and accommodation providers.
Aussie Perth Tours strongly recommend that all passengers take out their own travel insurance policy covering personal liability, tour cancellation, missed connections, loss of luggage and personal effects, etc. Aussie Perth Tours will not accept any liability for the above stated.
If for any reason (weather, road blocks, minimum numbers not achieved) we can no longer operate a scheduled tour, we will refund the cost of the tour to those clients who have made advance payments in full.
Due to the extensive organisation involved with touring, a strict cancellation fee applies to compensate for costs and lost revenue. We strongly recommend all clients have travel insurance to cover against such charges. Once a booking is made, the following charges will apply in the event of cancellation by the client:
30+ days prior to date of travel – no charge
30 to 15 days before departure – 25% charge
14 to 8 days before departure – 50% charge
7 days or less before departure or no-show – 100% charge
For personalised packaged tours, any deposits paid are strictly non-refundable, and the balance must be received 1 month prior to the commencement of the tour. If you fail to join a tour or join it after scheduled departure, no tour amount will be refunded. Similarly, if you leave the tour before the scheduled conclusion, no amount of the tour will be refunded.
The above cancellation fees are in addition to cancellation fees that may be applied by accommodation providers or third party tour and transport service providers.
Where a customer cancels due to Government restrictions that are either not removed as expected, extended, or reimposed, the customer will be contacted and offered a refund or credit note (to be used at a later time), where such an offer is at the absolute discretion of Aussie Perth Tours. We reserve the right to withhold some monies to cover administrative expenses and other losses, dependent on when notice of cancellation is given by the customer.
Full payment is required at the time of booking, unless an alternative arrangement has been made, in writing, with a tour consultant of Aussie Perth Tours. Credit Cards processing on Visa or Master Card payments may attract 2% surcharge or processing fee. We also accept AMEX and Diners card payments; however, there is a 3.5 % surcharge or processing fee.
CHANGES TO CONFIRMED BOOKINGS
Clients can alter their tour bookings and request for alternative and equivalent tour bookings subject to availability, at no extra cost. Once changed, bookings cannot be reverted back to original booking. Cancellation policy as outlined above will apply to such changed/amended bookings.
Aussie Perth Tours may cancel a trip at any time prior to departure due to any external event that is beyond our control and restricts us to operate as per the planned itinerary.
In the event of a tour cancellation, clients can choose to transfer to an alternative tour (subject to availability) or receive a full refund. In circumstances where the cancellation is due to external events outside our reasonable control, refunds will be less any unrecoverable costs.
Aussie Perth Tours are not responsible for any incidental expenses that may be incurred as a result of your booking including (but not limited to) visas, vaccinations, travel insurance excess or non-refundable flights. Please note that different cancellation policies may apply on tour components provided by third party suppliers, accommodation, etc.
