TERMS & CONDITIONS

OUR CONTRACT
All tours are arranged by Educational Tours Abroad Pty Ltd (and references in this conditions to we/us/our etc are to this company). When a booking is made which is accepted by us, this constitutes a contract between us and you the passenger. All bookings are taken on the basis that you accept these conditions.

BOOKING
This deposit must be forwarded to us, in the event that the deposit does not reach us within seven (7) working days of the booking being made, we will automatically assume that you no longer wish to travel with us and will cancel any arrangements reserved for you. The booking becomes a contract when our written confirmation of receipt of your deposit is dispatched to your Travel Agent. WE REQUIRE A NON-REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT OF $100 PER PERSON WITHIN 7 WORKING DAYS

AMENDMENTS
Each amendment to your booking will incur an amendment fee of $50 per ammendment.

PAYMENTS
Full payments, less the deposit pre-paid, must be paid by you so as to reach us no later than 45 days before departure from Australia. Please ensure your Travel Agent completes this transaction, otherwise your reservation may be subject to automatic cancellation. If the booking is made less than 45 days before departure, the whole cost must be paid when booking. We are not bound to issue any tickets or other travel documents until full payment is made. Failure to make payment when due, may, at our option, be deemed a cancellation by you and we reserve the right to retain the deposit you have paid. Late payment may cause the late delivery of travel documents and we accept no responsibility for such late delivery or any consequences thereof.

PRICES
Prices may vary due to fluctuations in exchange rates. All prices are quoted in Australian Dollars. Once full payment has been received the tour price will not be changed except in the case of force majeure (such as, but without limitation, storm, flood, act of God, trade dispute, fuel surcharges, hostilities, and Act or Regulation of any Government). An increase in Government tax will be for your account, in the event that further payment is required by us we will request this from you in writing. Failure to pay this sum within 7 days of it being requested may be treated as a cancellation by you and the applicable cancellation fees will become due.

CANCELLATION
If you cancel your booking then cancellation fees shall become chargeable. The amount payable is determined by the date on which we receive notification of your cancellation which must be writing and signed by the person who made the booking. If cancellation is received
by us more than 45 days before departure an administration fee of $100 per person is charged. For all cancellations received after that date, the amount of the cancellation fee is set out below:
BETWEEN 45 AND 31 DAYS 25%
