Terms and Conditions
Your travel has been booked by Tripfarm, on the basis of the following terms and conditions.
The enclosed ticket(s) (“voucher(s)”) have been booked by us on your behalf with various Service Providers. Each Service Provider may have their own terms & conditions applying to your travel. It is important that you read the relevant & corresponding brochure for each of your bookings in order to understand all applicable terms & conditions. If you require additional information to that contained in the brochure then we recommend that you contact the Service Provider for further clarification.
Open tickets: You must book your travel dates in advance with the individual Service Provider as per details provided on your voucher. Please be aware open dated tickets are subject to supplier price fluctuations which you could incur .Tickets with booked dates: It is your responsibility to ensure you redeem your tickets on the dates booked. If you wish to change these dates you must organise it with the Service Provider directly, with adequate notice You must reconfirm all booked dates 48 hours prior to travel (minimum guide only) or in the manner stated on your voucher. If applicable, dietary requirements should also be confirmed at this time. It is your responsibility to ensure the dates on vouchers are correct and correspond to your own itinerary.
CANCELLATIONS and REFUNDS
Credit card fees and fees paid to us for accommodation, bus tickets, flights and luggage storage are not transferable or refundable.
If you decide to cancel your travel, we have a cancellation fee of 50% of the value of the travel that was booked on your behalf and cancelled. In addition, if a Service Provider charges us for the cancelled travel you must also pay us the amount that we are charged on your behalf by the Service Provider. It is therefore possible your cancellation fees could be up to 100% of the cost of the booking, regardless of whether travel has commenced (for example cancellations made within 24hrs of travel or certain flight bookings).
The Cancellation Fee will apply in all cases where a tour is able to run. For example, if you are unable to reach a tour due to an “act of God” (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 or other travel service is cancelled by the Service Provider, we will first endeavour to rebook you free of charge. If this is not possible we will refund you the amount you paid for the tour or other travel service less a 10% administration fee (“Admin Fee”).
This full refund minus admin fee is subject to a fully refundable amount being given to us from the supplier who is cancelling.
We highlight here that all suppliers have different cancellation policies and is on a case by case basis. Please note that in the case of Natural Disasters (e.g flood, fire, cyclone, etc) many service providers do not offer any refund, therefore we cannot provide a refund to you.
We strongly recommend Travel Insurance to cover this situation.
We will take deposits on planned tours and travel itineraries and hold it for you for a period of 48 hours. Minimum deposit amount is 20% and this is not refundable should you choose not to proceed.
We will take deposits to secure car and camper van bookings and reservations. These deposits are non refundable, as we do not receive a refund for them.
We support the recommendation of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade that travellers take out travel insurance. Information can be provided to you about travel insurance if you require it. It your personal responsibility to purchase your own travel insurance to cover any liability which may be incurred to us or a Service Provider and other travel misadventures that you wish to be insured against.

We endeavour to package the best value tours available at the best prices.
