COVID-19 Flexibility Promise

The time has finally come! New Zealand's borders will be open without quarantine from 13 April 2022 for travellers from Australia and from 1 May 2022 for travellers from the USA, UK, Canada and all other visa-waver countries. We can't wait to welcome you all back to New Zealand!

We understand though that there is still some uncertainty around global travel, and because of this we've introduced additional flexibility into our standard booking conditions to really put your mind at ease.  At the end of the day, we want you to feel confident when you book with us that you've got the flexibility to change your travel plans should your circumstances change. 

So, this is our promise to you:

  1. Ultimate flexibility & last-minute COVID-19 deferral options
  2. Lifetime deposit
  3. New Zealand based team and personal service

1. Ultimate Flexibility & last-minute COVID-19 deferral options

If you would like to change your travel dates or can’t make it to New Zealand to join your trip for ANY reason, just let us know and we’ll transfer you and your travel companions to a future departure date, no questions asked, and no fees incurred. All you need to do is let us know 60 or more days before your trip departure date.

Inside 60 days before your scheduled trip departure, if the New Zealand Government or the government of your own country announces changes to compulsory travel restrictions preventing you from joining your tour, we will happily defer your tour to a later date of your choosing without the usual cancellation fees. Under these conditions the deferral must be outside of your control.

Relax when you have booking flexibility on your New Zealand tour

2. Lifetime Deposit

Your 15% deposit is valid for life! You can transfer your deposit to a future trip as many times as you need to, just let us know 60 days or more before the trip departure date. We do our best to accommodate all changes, we know life happens and your New Zealand trip is a BIG DEAL!
