The following terms and conditions apply to tour bookings made prior to February 18, 2020 (please see below for terms and conditions which apply to tour bookings made on or after February 18, 2020):

  • Payment in full within 7 days of the invoice date (or by the date requested by Brisbane Trike Tours for tours with less than 7 days’ notice) via PayPal, credit card or immediate bank transfer is required to confirm all bookings.  Credit card payments may incur a surcharge.
  • Packaged tour costs shown online are on a ‘starting from’ basis assuming Brisbane CBD or reasonably nearby suburban pick-up and drop-off locations.  Pick-up and drop-off locations which are a significant distance from Brisbane CBD may incur additional travel costs depending upon the circumstances, but in all cases we endeavour to be fair to all parties.
  • Where Brisbane Trike Tours cancel a tour for any reason other than inclement weather, a full refund of any monies paid will be made with no deduction for administration fees.
  • Tours cancelled by Brisbane Trike Tours due to inclement weather will be offered a rescheduled tour date, and this includes special occasion tours such as a birthday or anniversary tour where our passengers originally wished to tour on a particular date.  Passengers unable to reschedule due to having to return to an unreasonably remote location in Australia, or to a different country, will be provided a full refund less any credit or similar surcharges that apply.
  • Where the customer cancels a tour for any reason not less than two weeks prior to the tour date, a full refund of all monies paid, less a $25 administration fee, will be made.
  • Where the customer cancels a tour with a booking date for any reason less than *two weeks, but more than **48 hours,  prior to the tour date, 50% of the tour cost paid will be forfeited, unless the tour is rescheduled.
  • Where the customer cancels a tour with a booking date for any reason less than **48 hours prior to the tour date, or for ‘no shows’, a tour purchased as a surprise and the recipient refuses to tour, or the driver finds that information such as passenger weight or ability to fit into the trike was inaccurately provided by the customer resulting in the tour not being able to proceed, the entire tour cost paid will be forfeited.
  • In the event Brisbane Trike Tours is able to secure a replacement booking for a tour cancelled by the customer, we will refund in full, less a $25 administration fee and any difference in the cost of the original booking and any new replacement booking made for the same date when the original booking is not rescheduled.
  • In calculating cancellation dates and times for the above, Australian Eastern Standard Time is to be used.
  • Tour Certificates are issued on request when a specific tour has been purchased with a ‘to be advised’ future tour date and are valid for 6 months from issue date, i.e. the date on which the Tour Certificate was signed and validated by Christina McDonnell, Owner/Operator.  There will be no refund issued for expired or unused Tour Certificates, nor will we refund for a change of mind or if the recipient does not wish to tour.
  • Paid invoiced tours with a ‘to be advised’ tour date are valid for 6 months from the invoice date.  There will be no refund issued for tours not taken within 6 months of the paid invoice date.
  • Ultimate responsibility for arranging the taking up of Tour Certificates, or invoices with a ‘to be advised’ tour date,  rests with the purchaser, although Brisbane Trike Tours may, at their discretion, try to make contact to remind purchasers that the Tour Certificates or invoices are about to expire.
  • In the unlikely event of an incident rendering the tour vehicle inoperable, we will reschedule the entire tour regardless of how long the tour lasted before it was terminated.   Where a reschedule is not possible due to passengers needing to return interstate or overseas, a refund will be made on the basis that it will be made equal percentage-wise to the the remainder of the tour – for example, if a one hour tour costing $165 for two runs for just 30 minutes, then a refund of $82.50 will be made, and if the tour runs for 45 minutes, then a refund of $41.25 will be made.  In addition to this, Brisbane Trike Tours will arrange passenger transport to the previously agreed tour drop off location at our cost and by a method at our discretion considering distance, cost and transport availability.
* “two weeks” prior to the tour date means, for example, that if a tour is booked for 10am on Friday July 31 2015, then two weeks prior commences at 10am Friday July 17 2015.
**”48 hours prior to the tour date” means, for example, that if a tour is booked for 10am on Friday July 31 2015, then 48 hours prior commences at 10am on Wednesday July 29 2015.

 

For bookings made on or after February 18, 2020 or tours scheduled or rescheduled to dates on or after February 18, 2020, the following terms and conditions apply:

If passengers are unable to reschedule their tour, we will consider honouring bookings transferred to another party BUT ONLY where Brisbane Trike Tours has been provided with the opportunity to review the request and agreed to such transfer beforehand.

In the unlikely event of an incident rendering the tour vehicle inoperable mid-tour, we will reschedule the entire tour regardless of how long the tour lasted before it was terminated, or a refund will be made on the basis that it will be made equal percentage-wise to the the remainder of the tour – for example, if a one hour tour costing $165 for two runs for just 30 minutes, then a refund of $82.50 will be made, and if the tour runs for 45 minutes, then a refund of $41.25 will be made.  In addition to this, Brisbane Trike Tours will arrange passenger transport to the previously agreed tour drop off location at our cost and by a method at our discretion considering distance, cost and transport availability.
