Terms & Conditions
Please read the following terms and conditions carefully. You must not make any booking unless you are 18 years of age or older and understand and agree with the following terms and conditions. These terms and conditions apply to bookings you make with a Consultant (in-store, over the phone or by email) as well as online bookings made via our website. These terms and conditions govern our relationship with you. Once we accept a booking from you on behalf of a Supplier, you will also have a separate contract with the Supplier, which will be governed by other terms and conditions. It is your responsibility to make yourself aware of those other terms and conditions.
Although you should read all of the terms and conditions, the following is a summary of the most important: • Prices, including, in some cases, of confirmed bookings, may be subject to change. • Some confirmed bookings are non-refundable if cancelled by you and it is your responsibility to check if this applies. • We will be entitled to retain our service fees even if a booking is cancelled or does not proceed for any reason which is not our fault. • It is your responsibility to make yourself aware of all information relevant to your travel plans, including but not limited to visa requirements and health precautions. • We are not your agent, and may receive additional fees or other incentives from Suppliers. • We are not liable for the accuracy of any published Supplier content including websites and brochures.
PRICES AND TAXES
All prices that we quote are in Australian Dollars and based on twin share accommodation unless otherwise stated. Please note that prices quoted are subject to change at the discretion of the Supplier prior to booking. Price changes may occur after booking because of matters outside our control which increase the cost of the Product. Such factors include adverse currency fluctuations, fuel surcharges, taxes and airfare increases. Please contact your Consultant for up-to-date prices. Even if paid in full, a price may change because of matters outside our control. Prices include all applicable taxes requiring payment prior to departure, and may be subject to adjustment in the event of an increase in those taxes. On other occasions, you may be liable for taxes in addition to the quoted price of the Product. For example, there may be a local tax charged at some airports or resorts. PRODUCTS All Products that we quote on are subject to availability and may be withdrawn or varied by the Supplier without notice.
FEES AND SURCHARGES
A variety of fees and surcharges may be payable to us, including booking or reservation fees, cancellation and amendment fees, credit card merchant fees, insurance claim processing fees or fees for ad-hoc services performed as required. You may see our current schedule of professional service fees at www.albanytravelandcruise. com.au/service-fees. Payment by credit card will incur a surcharge to offset our cost of acceptance of payment by credit card. The surcharge varies depending on credit card type, it is your responsibility to advise the correct credit card type to ensure that the appropriate surcharge is applied. We accept no responsibility for an inappropriate surcharge being applied if the correct card type has not been advised, and the surcharge applied shall not be refundable. You authorise us to charge all monies payable by you in relation to any booking we make on your behalf or other services we have procured or provided to the credit card or debit card designated by you. If payment is not received from the card issuer or its agents for any reason, you agree to pay us all amounts due immediately on demand.
CHANGE AND CANCELLATION FEES
Be aware that some confirmed bookings are not refundable if cancelled, and also may not be transferable to another date or otherwise changed. Alternatively, a change may only be permissible subject to payment of an additional fee or charge. It is your responsibility to check if a booking is non-refundable or will incur charges for changing it before placing the booking. Changes and cancellations of confirmed bookings may incur fees from Suppliers in addition to our service fees. Suppliers’ fees are outlined in their relevant terms and conditions.
