Experience Hervey Bay Terms and Conditions
Clients should advise us before booking if any passengers are under 18 years of age at the time of commencement of travel to ensure the travel is appropriate.
You must reconfirm all booked tours prior to travel as specified on your voucher. If applicable, notes such as dietary requirements, pick-up locations and additional fees should be confirmed at this time. Reconfirmations cannot be actioned through Experience Hervey Bay and must be done so directly through the Service Operator as specified on each ticket/voucher.
It is your responsibility to notify us of ticket discrepancies. Please read through the details on your voucher thoroughly to ensure all details such as passenger names, ages and dates of travel are shown on vouchers are correct.
It is the responsibility of all passengers travelling to advise both your travel agent at the time of booking and check-in agent before boarding of any medical conditions including food allergies you may suffer from.
You need to allow adequate time to check-in prior to the specified departure time. Please refer to the specific tour page for full check-in instructions.
All prices are stated in Australian dollars and include GST. The Service Operator reserves the right to alter prices and extra costs. Extra costs may include environmental management fees (EMC fees), stinger/wet suit hire, luggage storage, insurance, linen hire, national parks fees, fuel levies, dietary fees etc. Bonds may also apply.
We will also endeavour to communicate these extra costs with you at the time of booking, and on your ticket. However, it is your responsibility to confirm which (if any) additional costs apply with each Service Operator upon reconfirming your trip.
It should be noted that travel involves risk. Whilst we make every effort to safeguard clients, we cannot be responsible for personal injury or loss due to the actions of our clients which are beyond our control. We highly recommend that all clients have travel insurance covering illness, injury, loss or damage to personal belongings, and not being able to travel on the confirmed date of departure. We strongly recommend taking out travel insurance. You should ensure your travel insurance will cover special circumstances including weather events preventing guests from travelling to their tour departure destination and cancelled flights due to unforeseen circumstances.
Please be aware operators pass on credit card merchant fees so there is a small non-refundable surcharge for the use of VISA and MASTERCARD.
Terms and Conditions (including the Cancellation Policy) are subject to change. The most recent versions can be found online on the relevant product pages.
All ticket/voucher reissues attract a minimum $20 administration fee.
The Service Operator reserves the right to limit courtesy transfers to select local accommodations. Transfer pick-up locations can be confirmed by contacting the Service Operator directly. Private residences or Airbnb properties may be asked to meet at the closest confirmed location. Failure to meet at the specified pick-up location may be treated as “No Show”, for which the Client Cancellation Policy applies. Not all tours offer transfers, please refer to the individual product to see if this is applicable to your tour.
This is meant to be a guideline. Full cancellation policies for each tour can be found on that individual product page’s terms and conditions as policies vary from operator to operator.
Transfers between tours can be made at the suppliers’ discretion, however, it should be noted that supplier fees may apply. Tour transfers also incur a minimum $20 administration fee.

All departures and itineraries are subject to weather. Tours may be changed or cancelled for any reason at the discretion of the Service Operator. If the Service Operator has to cancel the tour or activity (prior to departure) and we cannot offer a suitable alternative, then a refund will be given minus a 20% administration fee and any associated card fees. We strongly recommend that you have travel insurance, especially during the wet season.
In the unlikely event of your trip being cancelled or stood down, all guest communication is required to go through our agent telephone or email.
All refunds are in Australian Dollars and must be made to the card of payment. Barefoot Thinking Pty Ltd trading as Experience Hervey Bay is not liable for exchange rate fluctuations or fees, or any other merchant/bank fees associated with domestic and/or international transactions.
Where a full refund is applicable, there is the option to transfer the whole cost of the tour to another tour or “credit” to avoid the administration fee. A transfer fee of $20 will apply.
You will be emailed confirmation once the refund has been processed. Once the refund has been processed, it may take time for the banks to clear the amount. Please allow 7-10 business days for the funds to clear into Australia accounts and up to 21business days for international accounts.
All Service Operators have the right to provide client feedback and to cancel bookings based on feedback from other Service Operators.
Please enjoy your travel experience in a kind and responsible manner.
Experience Hervey Bay will treat this as any normal client cancellation and therefore the cancellation fees stated in the Client Cancellation Policy will apply.
