MANDATORY BOOKING REQUIREMENTS
We are not liable for any loss or expenses caused by your failure to comply with these requirements. Flight, rail and ferry reservations cannot be confirmed without passenger names. You must, at the time of booking, advise the correct names for all passengers including students and escorts. Name changes after tickets have been issued will result in the issue of new tickets and incur amendment charges, and may require a higher fare to be paid. G.E.T. Educational Tours can accept no responsibility for any additional charges, or inability to travel as a result of incorrect notification of passenger names.
DEPOSITS & PAYMENTS
A non refundable deposit is payable to confirm your reservation with full payment required 30 days prior to departure. Full payment for air, rail and sea travel is required 65 days prior to travel. GST will be charged on the full payment. A deposit of $20 per student is required for itineraries valued at $200 or less, $50 per student for itineraries from $201 to $500 and $300 per student for itineraries valued at $501 or greater. Bookings may be automatically cancelled if payment is not received.
CHANGES & AMENDMENTS
If you change your booking after final payment we will charge a $100 amendment fee for each change plus any additional pre-payable taxes, levies or charges. Requests for an individual to travel outside the group’s designated dates or destination will incur an additional charge of $100 per person plus any costs that our suppliers may charge. As prices are indicative only, details of particular tours or hotels in our brochures may have changed since publication date.
CANCELLATIONS & REFUNDS
A cancellation fee equal to 100% of the amount paid will apply until 30 days prior to departure (65 days for air, rail & sea sectors). Bookings cancelled within 30 days of departure will be charged a fee equal to 100% of the land content price.
Airlines, ground handling companies, hotels, hostels, restaurants and tour operators may impose additional cancellation fees within 65 days of departure.
Airline discount booking classes will incur cancellation fees following confirmation. In order to confirm seats some discount airfares may require immediate non refundable payment in full.
We will not refund any unused part of your itinerary including accommodation, transfers, tours, and airfares. Airline refunds following cancellation will be made when the airline completes the refund transaction (this may be in excess of 60 days). Cancellations will only be accepted in writing. The price of your tour is not guaranteed until full payment has been received.
We strongly recommend comprehensive travel insurance for students & escorts. This should be valid for the full duration of your itinerary.
When travelling by air free luggage allowances will be strictly enforced with excess baggage carried by airlines at their discretion and at passengers own expense. Note most full service airlines offer a 20kg free baggage allowance. Some low cost airlines may offer a lower allowance or levy an additional charge for baggage. Please note a maximum luggage weight of 25 kg per passenger applies for all coach travel.
