Key points

INSPIRED TRAVEL BOOKING CONDITIONS

The travel component of this Challenge is operated by Inspired Travel Pty Limited ABN 70 152 488 250 (“Inspired Travel”). The “Charity” referred to in these booking conditions is the Charity for whom you are fundraising as part of the Challenge.

 

You acknowledge that the Charity is not involved in the booking, organising, fulfilling or carrying out the travel, the Challenge or the activities undertaken as part of it. Please read the following terms and conditions carefully. You must not book unless you understand and agree with the following terms and conditions. References to “us”, “we”, “our” in these booking terms and conditions shall be a reference to Inspired Travel.

 

1. Prices: All prices are subject to travel availability and can be withdrawn or varied without notice before a booking is made. Please contact your travel consultant for current prices.

  • The price is only guaranteed to be available when receipt of full payment has been confirmed and is subject to change until this time.

  • After the time full payment is received, price increases may occur due to factors outside our control which result in an increase in the cost of the product or service. Such factors include adverse currency fluctuations, fuel surcharges, taxes and airfare increases.

  • Airline taxes are confirmed at the time your airline ticket is issued. There may also be local taxes, air passenger duties, entry charges or visa fees charged at some airports. These are payable by you, as and when they become payable.

 

2. Changes and Cancellation Fees: If you change a booking or travel arrangement, fees and extra charges will apply to the re-issue of tickets or documents. If you cancel a booking or travel arrangement, cancellation charges will apply which can be up to 100% of the travel cost, regardless of whether or not travel has commenced.


Some specific terms which may apply if you change or cancel your booking are:

  • You will forfeit your travel deposit. 

  • You will forfeit the travel cost paid, subject to unexpended travel costs and to any refunds available from our ground operators and suppliers under their cancellation policies. 

  • Ex Australia airfares and stopover accommodation will be subject to the cancellation and amendment fees set by the specific airlines /hotels concerned;

  • We charge an amendment fee per amendment if your travel arrangements are amended by you prior to the departure date

  • Name changes are generally not permitted after full payment has been made. It is your responsibility to ensure that the name on your itinerary matches the name on your passport before making the payment; and

  • Amendments to flights after full payment has been made will incur an amendment fee plus any applicable difference in airfare charges and taxes.

 

3. Deposit and Final Payment: You will be required to pay a travel deposit at the time of booking. The travel deposit is non-refundable. You will be required to make your final payment of the travel cost no later than 90 days prior to departure date unless otherwise stated. Some airfares or services must be paid in full at the time of booking.

  • Payments by Credit Card: Credit card surcharges of 1.1% for Visa and MasterCard and 2.3% for American Express credit cards will apply when paying by credit card. No surcharge applies to payments made by debit cards. If for any reason any travel service provider is unable to provide the services for which you have contracted, your remedy lies against that provider, and not against Inspired Travel. In the event that payment has been made to Inspired Travel by credit card, you agree that you will not seek to charge back your payment unless allowed under these booking conditions.

  • Payments by Funds Transfer of by Cheque: payments by funds transfer or by cheque (including bank cheques) are valid when cleared funds are received.

The travel insurance must cover accidents, injury, illness and death, medical and hospital expenses, including any related to pre-existing medical conditions, emergency repatriation (including helicopter rescue and air ambulance where applicable) and personal liability. It is recommended that the travel insurance covers loss of deposit, cancellation, curtailment and loss of personal property. The travel insurance is to cover the duration of, and place of the Challenge. You must carry proof of travel insurance with you, and produce it if reasonably requested by Inspired Travel, its employees and agents. Inspired Travel reserves the right to cancel or suspend your participation on a Challenge or in certain activities that comprise part of a Challenge, at any time including at or after the commencement of the Challenge, with no right of refund, if you are unable to provide proof of travel insurance when requested.

Inspired Travel sells various travel related products on behalf of numerous transport, accommodation and other wholesale service providers, such as airlines, coach, rail and cruise line operators. Inspired Travel is responsible to make travel bookings on your behalf with travel service providers. We have no responsibility for the provision of these services nor do we make or give any warranty or representation regarding their standard. All bookings made are subject to the terms and conditions and limitations of liability imposed by the service provider. If the service provider is unable to provide the services for which you have contracted, your remedy lies against the service provider and not against Inspired Travel.

 

6. Acceptance of Risk: You acknowledge that travel arrangements will have the usual risks of travel and, in some cases, additional risks that are associated with adventure activities and the specific nature of your Challenge. You accept these risks and the possibility of personal injury, death, property damage or loss which may result from your decision to participate in the Challenge. You agree that should you be affected by any sickness, serious injury or other unforeseen circumstance that Inspired Travel, and/or any of our overseas partner operators, may be able to arrange any urgent medical treatment or emergency evacuation as deemed necessary for your safety, but that all decisions as to treatment or emergency evacuation will be made by your travel insurer and that you or your travel insurer will be responsible for all costs.

 

7. Liability waiver: Neither Inspired Travel nor the Charity accept any liability of whatever 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 as available under applicable legislation. We do not accept any liability in contract, tort or otherwise for any injury, damage, loss (including consequential loss), delay, additional expense or inconvenience caused directly or indirectly by force majeure event or any other event which is beyond our control and which is not preventable by reasonable diligence on our part. 

 

8. Change of arrangements: You acknowledge that travelling with Inspired Travel requires a degree of flexibility, good humour, and an understanding that the itinerary, accommodation, and/or modes of transport may change, even after commencement, without prior notice due to local circumstances. Changes of arrangements may occur because of force majeure events, poor road conditions, weather, availability of tickets, vehicle breakdowns, changes in transport schedules, or other circumstances beyond Inspired Travel’s control or which simply cannot be foreseen. Inspired Travel does not accept any responsibility for loss of enjoyment, delays or compensation resulting from circumstances beyond Inspired Travel’s control. Inspired Travel reserves the right to change any part, or the whole, of the arrangements contained within the itinerary for the Challenge, should conditions or circumstances beyond its reasonable control determine such action necessary. If as a result of the change, the challenge cannot depart as planned, or cannot continue as planned, then Inspired Travel will use its reasonable endeavours to provide alternatives of the same standard, quality and duration as the original itinerary. If you do not accept these alternatives you will be treated as having cancelled your participation in the Challenge, in which case any unexpended travel cost will not be refunded except for any refunds received from suppliers, according to supplier cancellation policies.

It is your responsibility to review the up-to-date Trip Notes and Pre-Departure Information. These can be obtained from Inspired Travel.

All losses incurred as a result of such documents not meeting the requirements will be your sole responsibility. 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 engaged on your behalf.

If so, Inspired Adventures will offer you the choice of a voucher for the postponed Challenge or a credit note for a different Challenge.

 

5. Force majeure events: There are some reasons outside of the control of Inspired Adventures, Inspired Travel and/or the Charity which mean that the Challenge cannot proceed as scheduled. These reasons are known as force majeure events. They include weather or road conditions, a natural disaster such as an earthquake or volcanic eruption or hurricane or tsunami, the closure of a place or a route, civil and government disturbances, a terrorist incident, military action, an epidemic, a pandemic, and other events that necessitate changes to the itinerary or operating difficulties imposed by the owners and/or operators of accommodation, facilities or transport, or conditions in places or countries which result in a Level 3 or Level 4 Travel Safety Advice on travel being issued by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade or a travel ban (closure of borders) being ordered by the Australian, State or Territory Government or the Government in the destination, restrictions on international flights and compulsory quarantine.

If the Challenge can proceed on the dates scheduled, subject to changes to the itinerary, accommodation, and/or modes of transport, which are of the same standard, quality and duration as the original itinerary, then the Challenge will proceed. If you do not desire to participate in the Challenge as changed, then you will be treated as having cancelled your participation in the Challenge, and the ‘cancellation by you’ provisions will apply.

If governed by Victorian Law, the following applies:

WARNING UNDER THE AUSTRALIAN CONSUMER LAW AND FAIR TRADING ACT 2012

Under the Australian Consumer Law (Victoria), several statutory guarantees apply to the supply of certain goods and services. These guarantees mean that the supplier named on this form is required to ensure that the recreational services it supplies to you—

  • are rendered with due care and skill; and

  • are reasonably fit for any purpose which you, either expressly or by implication, make known to the supplier; and

  • might reasonably be expected to achieve any result you have made known to the supplier.

 

Under section 22 of the Australian Consumer Law and Fair Trading Act 2012, the supplier is entitled to ask you to agree that these statutory guarantees do not apply to you. If you sign this form, you will be agreeing that your rights to sue the supplier under the Australian Consumer Law and Fair Trading Act 2012 if you are killed or injured because the services were not in accordance with these guarantees, are excluded, restricted or modified in the way set out in this form.

NOTE: The change to your rights, as set out in this form, does not apply if your death or injury is due to gross negligence on the supplier’s part. “Gross” negligence, in relation to an act or omission, means doing the act or omitting to do an act with reckless disregard, with or without consciousness, for the consequences of the act or omission. See regulation 5 of the Australian Consumer Law and Fair Trading Regulations 2012 and section 22(3)(b) of the Australian Consumer Law and Fair Trading Act 2012.

 

12. Privacy: In order to be able to supply services to you, Inspired Adventures and Inspired Travel will need to collect certain information from you, some of which may be of a personal nature. The information may be disclosed to, or collected on our behalf by our service providers to enable the services to be provided, but will not be used by them for any other purpose. View Inspired Adventures’ Privacy Policy on its website.

 

13. Image and Likeness: You grant Inspired Adventures, Inspired Travel and the Charity the right to take images, photographs and videos of you and your personal effects in connection to your participation on a Challenge. You authorise Inspired Adventures and Inspired Travel, their assigns and transferees to copyright, use and publish your image and likeness in print and/or electronically for marketing purposes, and the like.

 

14. Non-disparagement: You are not to disparage or otherwise bring into disrepute or damage to the good name and standing of Inspired Adventures, Inspired Travel or the Charity.

 

15. COVID-19: A participant will be treated as unable to participate in or continuing their participation in the Challenge if:

  • their medical practitioner does not sign the Medical Form because in their opinion the participant should not be travelling because of the risk of a Covid-19 infection; or

  • they test positive or show symptoms of Covid-19 prior to departure when declaring their fitness to  travel; or

  • they show symptoms of Covid-19 during the Challenge and need to leave the Challenge early.
