CANCELLATIONS, CHANGES and REFUNDS
Credit card fees of 3% on all card transactions are non-refundable. Payments made to us for accommodation are not transferable or refundable.
Deposits are non refundable. Cancellations on bookings made will incur 100% cancellation fee. Where possible any monies paid can be transferred to a credit to re-book an alternative package or date agreed upon. Each supplier has their own terms & conditions, therefore refunded amounts and transferring of events is subject to these terms & conditions at the time of canceling.
The Cancellation Fee will apply in all cases where a tour or event is able to run. For example, if you are unable to reach a tour due to a “natural disaster” (for example a road is cut off due to flooding) the normal Cancellation Fee will apply if the tour still runs in your absence or would have run but for your absence. If a tour, event or other travel service is cancelled by the Service Provider, we will refund you the amount paid for the tour or other travel service less a 10% administration fee. Refunds for international bookings with currencies other than the AUD will be subject to the conversion fees at the time of the refund.
If possible you may be offered to transfer your booking to another package or date. However there will be a transfer fee, this is dependent on the size of the booking.
We do not take responsibility if you or any parties in your group are late and any inclusions are forfeited due to this. Whether traffic, miscommunication or unforeseen circumstances.
Some suppliers do require a bond to be prepaid or pre-authorised to their company prior to your event, activity or accommodation in case of any loss or damages throughout your stay or event. Real Escapes is not responsible for the payment nor refunding of these bonds and is a direct matter with the suppliers themselves and is subject to the suppliers terms & conditions.
If a refund has been offered in any case Real Escapes will endeavour to have this processed immediately and within a maximum of 7 days. However if a refund from a supplier is required for this it is subject to their refund processing times and terms & conditions.
If a booking is cancelled by the supplier due to bad behaviour, being intoxicated or under the influence or not abiding by the terms and conditions or instructions of the company there will be no refund offered. It is at the discretion of the supplier and their staff whether your booking will go ahead. Real Escapes will not be responsible for any refusal made by the supplier.
Mobile event venues are your responsibility. In the case where a mobile event is booked that you wish to cancel or is required to be cancelled due to weather or other circumstances no refund will be issued.
If an event is forced to cancel due to government restrictions, laws or enforcements or any travel bans you may be entitled to a partial refund, credit note or date postponement. Each would be dealt with on a case by case basis and is subject to each supplier’s own terms and conditions and capabilities.
All changes made to bookings, including but not limited to; date changes, time changes, address changes, inclusions etc. will incur a change fee. The amount will be dependent on the number of suppliers, nature of the change and timeframe of change prior to the event.
Balance payments made prior to the scheduled due balance date are non refundable as suppliers will be paid out immediately with this balance. Regardless of paying early, changes are not permitted to be made after the balance is paid and the regular cancellation fee applies.
