In paying a deposit, you agree to be bound by these conditions which constitute the agreement between The Perfect Travel Group Pty Ltd ABN 59 123 428 624 (The Agency, trading as The Perfect Wave and Surf Music In Paradise) and you. No purported variation of these conditions will be effective unless in writing and signed by a person so authorised by The Perfect Travel Group Pty Ltd.
Agency: The Perfect Travel Group Pty Ltd acts as an agent only. We sell various travel related products on behalf of numerous transports, accommodation and other service providers, such as airlines, and boat charter operators. The Perfect Travel Group Pty Ltd obligation is to make travel bookings on your behalf and to arrange relevant contracts between you and travel service providers. The Perfect Travel Group Pty Ltd has no responsibility for these services, nor do we make or give any warranty of representation regarding their standards. All bookings are made subject to the terms and conditions and limitations of liability imposed by these service providers. Your legal recourse is against the specific provider and not The Perfect Travel Group Pty Ltd. If for any reason, any travel service provider is unable to provide the services for which you have contracted your remedy lies against the provider and not with The Perfect Travel Group Pty Ltd.
Prices: All prices are subject to availability and can be withdrawn or varied without notice. Prices are generally quoted in local office currencies which usually differ from operator currencies and may be subject to exchange rates fluctuations beyond our control until paid in full. All deposits are required to be paid before bookings will be processed. Payment of deposit means acceptance of all terms and conditions. Full payment required minimum 90 days before departure – this may be earlier subject to individual operators’ policies. Some air tickets & specials may be instant purchase. If bookings are made inside of 90 days; then full payment required immediately.
Cancellations: All deposits are non-refundable. Cancellations within 90 days may be fully non-refundable. Please ensure you have the relevant travel insurance that may cover you in the case of unforeseen circumstances such as illness or accidents. Some cancellations may be partly refundable, but cancellation charges will apply.
The Perfect Travel Group Pty Ltd is unable to provide any refund to you until we receive the funds from the relevant supplier. In the case of airline refunds, this may take up to twelve weeks. Fees will also apply where a booking is changed, or tickets/documents are reissued.
Travel Insurance: Travel Insurance is strongly recommended by The Perfect Travel Group Pty Ltd and Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. Travel Insurance is compulsory when booking Surf Music in Paradise events, charter boats and many specialist operators.
Taxes: Certain taxes are mandatory in various countries. There may also be an additional local tax charged at some airports. All taxes are subject to change without notice. Additional surcharges are applicable to some bookings particularly those that stop in the USA. The cost of taxes cannot be confirmed until the date of final payment / ticket issue, as they fluctuate daily and are subject to conversion by the rate of exchange on the day the ticket is issued.
Health: It is your responsibility to ensure that you are aware of any health requirements for your travel destinations and to ensure that you carry all necessary vaccination documentation. You should consult your doctor regarding health requirements for your destination.
Passports & Visas: It is your responsibility to ensure that you have valid passports, visas and re-entry permits which meet the requirements of immigration and other government authorities. Any fines, penalties, payments or expenditures incurred as a result of such documents not meeting the requirements of those authorities will be your sole responsibility. All travellers must have a valid passport for international travel and many countries require at least 6 months validity from the date of entry. If you need information regarding visa and other travel document requirements for your trip please let us know. We can obtain such information from an external visa advisory service provider on your behalf. We do not warrant the accuracy of such information and accept no liability for any loss or damage which you may suffer in reliance on it. We can assist with obtaining visas for you if you wish; fees will apply for this service.
Duty of Care – 20 Point Checklist: The Perfect Travel Group Pty Ltd team has great experience in operations and hospitality, so we are qualified to assess the operations that we represent. We have attained a massive knowledge base in what our clients want in a surf trip and usual expectations of standards. Although we are unable to inspect all the experiences that we represent, we have been able to verify the operations through the experience of our network. Now we understand that there is no way to guarantee that something won’t go wrong on your surf holiday, but we are confident that we only represent the best operators that can and will deal with any issues that occur and do the right thing by their guests. What we have created to ensure that we have the best operators is the following “20-point checklist” that all operations need to supply us with before we list their surf experience. To view this checklist please see our website. However, we do need to reiterate that although The Perfect Travel Group Pty Ltd have done the maximum due diligence possible to ensure you have a successful trip, it is impossible to guarantee and you need to be aware it is unlikely but possible something may still go wrong. We are solely a travel agent working for both the operators and you, and we are not responsible or liable for any issues you may have with the operator, as per the Travel Agents Act. We will guarantee though, that we will work for all our clients that have reason to be unhappy with an operation, and we will use our strongest influence to ensure the operator does the right thing by all our clients.
Liability: The Perfect Travel Group Pty Ltd does not accept any liability of any nature, whether in contract, tort or otherwise, for the acts, omissions or default, whether negligent or otherwise, of third-party providers over whom we have no direct control. Under circumstances where liability cannot be excluded, such liability is limited to the value of the purchased travel arrangements. We do not accept any liability in contract, tort or otherwise for any injury, damage, loss (including consequential loss), delay, additional expense, inconvenience or loss of enjoyment caused directly or unavoidably indirectly or any other event which is beyond our control & which is not preventable by reasonable diligence on our part. Neither The Perfect Travel Group Pty Ltd nor any of its representatives accepts any responsibility for oceanic occurrences or climatic conditions that do not match your expectations or are beyond your capabilities. All activities engaged in are solely at your own risk and of your own choice.
Credit Card Transactions: Credit card surcharges apply when paying by credit card. Visa/ MasterCard 1.5%; Amex/Diners 3%. If for any reason any travel service provider is unable to provide the services for which you have contracted, your remedy lies with that provider, and not against The Perfect Travel Group Pty Ltd. The Perfect Travel Group Pty Ltd will do its best to work with you to recover your payment or applicable refund from the operator.
