Terms and conditions
Accommodation & Tours
These terms and conditions apply to all accommodation & tours made available by the Federal Group. By making a booking for accommodation or tour, you warrant that you have read these terms and conditions and agree to be bound by them subject to such changes as are notified to you. If the booking for accommodation &/or a tour is made through a third party, the terms and conditions of that third party also apply.
Where indicated, minimum stay conditions apply to accommodation options. The Federal Group will endeavour to provide the accommodation and tour but reserves the right to refuse requests for bookings or actual bookings due to insufficient or excessive numbers of requests. All accommodation is subject to availability. All tours are subject to availability, minimum participation requirements & prevailing weather conditions at the time of operation. A tour may be cancelled up to the time of departure if it is the opinion of the tour operator that weather or any other conditions are such that it would be unsafe to conduct the tour. A full refund will be applicable in this event. Accommodation guests booking tours will have ticket prices charged to their room with full payment through the guaranteed credit card on departure. As Freycinet Lodge is located within a pristine National Park, entry fees do apply. Passes are available from the visitor information centre at the entrance to the park or at Freycinet Lodge reception with prices for a 24 hour vehicle pass starting at $24.00.
All accommodation and tour bookings must be guaranteed at the time of reservation by provision of credit card details. Please be advised that a 1.5% non-refundable credit card surcharge is applicable to all transactions across the Federal Group.
By providing credit card details you warrant that you have the authority to use the credit card and you authorise the Federal Group to charge the cost of your booking to the credit card. You will not be charged for an accommodation booking prior to the date on which you are due to arrive
and will not be charged for a tour booking until the date of the booked tour, unless previous arrangements have been made directly with the Federal Group Customer Contact Centre.
