DestinationANZ advises you to call the local tour operator to reconfirm your flight arrival information and pick-up schedule before your departure.

Invoices

This Website is operated by a company duly incorporated in Australia, which is not required to have a tax registration in your local jurisdiction and therefore has not charged local transaction taxes related to your travel booking. DestinationANZ cannot issue invoices for the purpose of recovery of taxes in your local jurisdiction.

Travel and Accommodation

DestinationANZ is not itself a carrier or hotelier, nor do we own cars, hotels or coaches. The cars, coach journeys, other travel and hotel accommodation comprised in your booking are provided by reputable carriers and hoteliers on their own conditions. It is important to note, therefore, that all bookings made with DestinationANZ will carry the name of the Customer and are subject to the terms and conditions of the relevant service providers some which limit or exclude liability in respect of death, personal injury and loss or damage to baggage. Each booking brings into effect a new contractual relationship between the Customer and the service provider. The Customer, therefore, has the right (as principal) to enforce any breach of the terms and conditions against the service provider.

Our Responsibility

The standards of accommodation and other services contained in this website are based on various factors, which are generally accepted as indicative of a certain class. DestinationANZ does not accept any liability of whatever nature for the acts, omissions or default, whether negligent or otherwise, of those service providers in connection with your passengers’ tour pursuant to a contract between them and your passengers and over whom we have no direct control. We do not accept liability in contract or in tort (actionable wrong) for any injury, damage, loss, delay, additional expenses or inconvenience caused directly or indirectly by force majeure or other events which are not preventable by reasonable diligence on our part including, but not limited to war, civil disturbances, fire, floods, unusually severe weather, acts of God, acts of Government or any other authorities, accidents to or failure of machinery or equipment or industrial action.

Your Responsibility

Before making reservations, it is your responsibility to read the fine print associated with your desired product including, but not limited to, the following sections: Pricing and its notice, Tour Itinerary, Package Includes, Package Excludes, Cancellation and Refund Policy, Terms and Conditions, Special Note, etc.. And you herein state that you have read and fully understand the content of all fine print and will waive the right to dispute any part of it after your purchase.
Once you have completed your reservation, it is the customer’s responsibility to keep all contact information up-to-date.

Disclaimer and Limitation of Liability

DestinationANZ uses reasonable efforts to have accurate, complete and current information on its website. However, since travel and tour rates are constantly changing, we do not warrant that all information is up-to-date or free of technical or typographical errors. It is the user’s responsibility to verify any information before relying on it. We reserve the right to make changes and updates to any information contained within this site without prior notice. Access to, and use of, this website and the content thereof is at the risk of the user. In certain instances, we have provided links to other websites solely for your convenience. These sites are not maintained or controlled by DestinationANZ, and we are not responsible for their content. It is up to you to take precautions to ensure that whatever you select for your use is free of such items as viruses, bugs, worms, cancelbots, Trojan horses and other items of a harmful or destructive nature.
If your contact information, including but not limited to, your email address, phone number, physical address or other data is incorrect, DestinationANZ will not assume any liability for information not received by the customer/consumer.

Maps and Photographs

Street maps are shown for general information and may not necessarily reflect actual routings or locations. Room and tour photographs and facilities displayed on this website are included as a guide only. The photographs may not necessarily reflect the actual room, tour or services featured on this website.

Payment

DestinationANZ will issue the Customer with an invoice detailing the cost of the services rendered inclusive of DestinationANZ’s service charges, where required by law a detailed tax invoice will be supplied, alternatively the Customer has the right to request one. Without prior credit arrangements payment must be received into our office/account 30 days prior to travel. If travel arrangements are made within this time, then payment must be executed within 48 hours of confirmation of services. If payment is not received by the due date, DestinationANZ reserves the right to cancel the reservation without entering into further correspondence. For the security and time-saving benefits, DestinationANZ prefers to receive payment by funds transfer direct to our bank accounts, however, it is understood that, in some instances, our industry partners would wish to execute payment of DestinationANZ invoices by credit card, in particular where time is a crucial factor. Diners Club and American Express credit cards may attract transaction fees, which will be advised by our accounts department.

Internet

The rates provided in this website cannot be used for uploading on any internet online-booking website without prior written authorization. The DestinationANZ reserves the right to refuse any bookings at these rates which might be generated by unauthorized websites.

Travel Insurance

DestinationANZ strongly recommends our customers acquire insurance covering medical, trip cancellation, and baggage, etc. DestinationANZ does not currently offer any travel arrangements. The tour products listed on Destinationanz.com.au are operated by independent tour providers. We act as agent for providers of tours, transportation, sightseeing and hotel accommodations. DestinationANZ shall be exempt from any liability in the event of an accident resulting in, but not limited to, loss or damage of properties, injury to people, death during trip, delays, irregularities or other occurrences beyond its control. Settlements will ensue in accordance with rules set by airlines, hotels, buses, etc. You agree that DestinationANZ will not be liable for any costs or damages arising out of a dispute or disagreement between you and any participating provider or a third party for anything that is in any way related to this site or the use of information contained in this site, and you hereby expressively waive any such claim against DestinationANZ and its owner, members, officers, directors, employees, parents, subsidiaries, agents and representatives. DestinationANZ suggests that due to the Cancellation Policy for your tour and the unexpected events that can possibly occur, your party would benefit from purchasing Travel Insurance for your reservation.

Important Note

Some tours require a minimum number of passengers to operate. If minimum numbers are not achieved, tours may be canceled at short notice. Some suppliers also reserve the right to cancel departures for other reasons, some which may be affected by weather conditions. Please inquire at the time of booking for these special terms and conditions. Some tours and itineraries may also vary and attractions may be substituted due to seasonal conditions. DestinationANZ will not be held liable for a service variation, cancellation, delay or withdrawal, or a Supplier’s failure to notify you.

Jurisdiction

This Agreement is governed by the laws of the State of South Australia, Australia and you agree to submit to the jurisdiction of the courts exercising jurisdiction in that State.

Acceptance

These are standard terms and conditions applied to all sales by DestinationANZ unless varied in writing by mutual agreement. By downloading any material or accessing any data, information or material using the DestinationANZ website, you agree to be bound by these terms and conditions in your dealings with the DestinationANZ.

Confirming your booking and taking payment
In most cases, we will confirm your booking immediately using the email address provided when the booking is made. Sometimes, we need to wait for the car hire company to confirm that a car is available. We will tell you straight away if this happens, and temporarily block the money on your payment card. As soon as they confirm your car, we will let you know, and take the money from your card.

Until your car is confirmed, you can ‘void’ the payment at any time. Just hit ‘Manage booking’ at the top of our site, enter the email address provided when making the booking and reservation number, then hit ‘Cancel Booking’. We will unblock the money on your card.

Very rarely, a car hire company can’t confirm that a car is available. If this happens, we will tell you, and unblock the money on your card.

When you book a car or other product on our site, we will email you to confirm its availability within 48 hours of booking (or, if earlier, at least 24 hours before your pick-up time). We will then send you a booking confirmation.

You will not have a contract until we have confirmed your booking and taken the payment. We will send all correspondence to the address provided when making the booking. For the avoidance of doubt, nothing in these terms shall entitle any third party to any benefit or rights pursuant to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999.

Accuracy of Information
Although we strive to ensure the accuracy of the information on this website, neither we nor our affiliates, suppliers or agents can be held responsible by you for the accuracy of such information. It is solely your responsibility to evaluate the accuracy, completeness and usefulness of all information provided on this website.

The DestinationANZ.com voucher / eVoucher must be presented to the car hire company when picking up your hire car. We cannot be held responsible for rentals rejected if a voucher / eVoucher is not presented.

We cannot accept liability for any charges incurred as a result of documentation signed for and accepted at the car hire counter.

We will not be held responsible for anyone driving under the influence of alcohol/drugs, causing wilful damage, driving off-road or driving without due care and attention. You, will accept full responsibility in respect of such claims. This list is not exhaustive.

What is included / excluded in the price?
Please read the specific terms & conditions relating to your car hire, which you will see during the booking process.

Fuel & Deposits at the Car Hire Counter
Most car hire companies require a deposit at the start of the rental to cover the liability excess, any charges incurred during the rental and, in some cases, fuel. In order to make the deposit you will usually be required to have a valid credit card with available funds on it. The card must be in the main driver’s name. Please note, not all car hire companies accept the same card types and you should check the “Important Information” section when making a booking and/or your car hire agreement to confirm which card types will be accepted. If you still have any questions please contact us. Provided the car and extras are returned in the same state as rented and in accordance with the fuel policy, this deposit will be refunded after dropping the car off (please note that it may take up to 30 days for the money to appear on your credit card again).

Some car hire companies will require you to return the car with the same amount of fuel it had in the tank at pick-up. Others operate a fuel policy where you, must purchase the first tank of fuel and may drop the car off empty – in which case, there may be no refund for unused fuel.

Where the car hire company charges for fuel, the cost may be higher than it would be at a local petrol station.

Out-of-Hours Service 
At most airport locations, flights will be met and cars supplied outside normal working hours. However, there may be an additional charge for this service, which will be payable directly to the car hire company. We will advise you whether a charge will apply when you confirm your pick-up times in your booking request. In the event that a flight delay causes the car pick-up to fall outside a car hire company’s normal working hours, the car hire company may agree to provide an out-of-hours service – in which case they will advise you of any fee. We can accept no further responsibility where there is no out-of-hours service available – and it is therefore recommended that you take independent travel insurance. Non-airport car hire counters may also provide an out-of-hours service.

Minimum / Maximum Age Limitations
In most locations, the minimum hiring age is 21 years. Additional fees can apply with certain car hire companies and in certain countries for drivers aged under 25 years or over 65 years: where the correct driver age has been submitted with the booking request, we will advise of any likely fees. Minimum age requirements on larger cars may also be higher at some locations. Please check with our Contact Centre if you  have any questions or concerns about this matter.

Additional Drivers 
Fees may apply for additional drivers, payable at the car hire counter (unless otherwise specified on the DestinationANZ.com voucher / eVoucher). Please check with our Contact Centre.

Daily Rate Calculations / Periods of Hire / Period of Hire Extensions/ Late Drop-off
The price of your car hire will be confirmed at time of booking and calculated on the basis of 24-hour units. If you wish to extend the period of hire after picking the car up, or if you drop the car off later than stated on your voucher / eVoucher, the contract for such an extension will always be with the car hire company directly and the extra time will be charged for by the car hire company at the local daily rate, which may be higher than the rates agreed with us at the time of booking. The car hire company may also charge an additional penalty for late drop-off, details of any additional payments will be in your contract with the car hire company.

Late Pick-ups / Early Drop-offs 
Your rental starts and finishes according to the pick-up and drop-off dates and times detailed on your voucher / eVoucher. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide refunds for unused time if a car is picked up late or dropped off early. If you are unable to pick the car up at the agreed time and date, it is essential you contact us as soon as possible. If you do not, there is no guarantee that the car will still be available – and you will not be entitled to any refund. One-Way Rentals
One-way rentals must be confirmed in advance and may be subject to one-way fees, payable to the car hire company. We will advise you of the approximate costs after we receive your booking request and receive confirmation from the car hire company regarding the one-way rental.

Child Seats & Special Requests 
Child seats, roof racks (not available on some cars) and other ‘extra’ items are available on request in most locations, although they cannot be guaranteed. There is usually a fee payable to the car hire company. In most locations, child seats are required by law. Please note: rear seatbelts may not be provided in all cars. Please check with our Contact Centre regarding these items. Requests for these items should be made at the time of booking.

Deliveries & Collections 
Some car hire companies will agree to deliver your car to / collect it from a specified address. If so, there may be a fee for this service, payable to the car hire company. We will advise you whether a fee will apply when you confirm your pick-up / drop-off times, along with the full address details, in your booking request. Please note: car hire companies generally do not deliver to or collect from private accommodation.

Driving Areas 
Restrictions may be applicable when taking the hire car to a different country/state/island; our Contact Centre must therefore be advised at the time of booking whether you intend to do this. Additional documentation may be required and local charges may apply for travel to certain countries. Restrictions may also apply in remote areas such as the Australian outback; please check with our Contact Centre.

Cancellations, No Shows & Amendments
In most circumstances the cancellation policy below will apply to your booking; however you should check the car hire company’s terms and conditions in case a more restrictive policy applies.

Cancellation of Fully Prepaid Bookings

  • If you cancel 48 hours or more before your rental is due to start, the money you’ve paid will be refunded.
  • If you cancel within the 48 hour period before pick-up, the money you’ve paid will be refunded, minus the cost of 3 days rental:
    • if you had booked the car for less than 3 days, there won’t be any additional charge, but you won’t receive any refund.
  • If you fail to turn up at the agreed time and date, and/or to provide all the necessary documentation, and/or to provide a credit card in the name of the main driver with enough available funds on it for the car’s deposit, the car hire company may refuse you the car. If that happens:
    • if you call us from the counter, the money you’ve paid will be refunded, minus the cost of a 3 days rental
    • if you do not call us from the counter, you’ll receive no refund.

Cancellation of Deposit Bookings

  • If you cancel 48 hours or more before your rental is due to start, the money you’ve paid will be refunded, minus the deposit.
  • If you cancel less than 48 hours in advance, but before your rental is due to start, the money you’ve paid will be refunded, minus either the deposit or the cost of 3 days rental, whichever is greater.
  • If you had booked the car for less than 3 days, there won’t be any additional charge, but you won’t receive any refund.

No-Show
A ‘No-show’ is when you:

  • wish to cancel but don’t tell us before your rental is due to start, or
  • fail to pick the car up at the arranged time and date, or
  • fail to provide the documentation that’s required to pick the car up, or
  • fail to provide a credit card in the main driver’s name with enough available funds on it for the car’s deposit.

In all instances of a ‘No-show’, you’ll receive no refund of the money you’ve paid.

The car hire company reserves the right to refuse the car to any customer who fails to arrive on time with all necessary documentation and a credit card in the main driver’s name with enough available funds for the car’s deposit. In such a case, unless the rental has been cancelled in advance, the customer will not be entitled to a refund.

Amendments (changes to your booking)
You can make changes to your booking any time before you’re due to pick the car up.

If your pick-up time is at least 48 hours away, the easiest way to do this is to go to ‘Manage booking’ in the top right-hand corner.

If you need to change something when your pick-up time is less than 48 hours away, please call us instead.

There is no administration fee for changing your booking, but any changes you make may affect the rental price. Sometimes (not often), the only way we can change a booking is to cancel it and make another one, in which case we may charge you a cancellation fee on the car hire company’s behalf.

If We Make Changes to Your Booking 
Occasionally it may be necessary for changes to be made to your booking (after acceptance) by us or by the car hire company. In all such cases we will advise you  as soon as reasonably possible before pick-up and, if the proposed changes are unacceptable, you will be offered a full refund. However, in such circumstances, we shall have no additional liability in respect of any direct or indirect losses you may suffer as a result of such changes.

Documentation 
Your voucher / eVoucher will normally be available once full payment has been received and the car confirmed by the car hire company. Please note that certain ‘request’ cars may take longer to confirm and we will advise you if this is the case. Where the car cannot be picked up due to insufficient documentation or failure to provide a valid credit card, this will be treated as a ‘No Show’, which means you will not be entitled to a refund of money paid. Please ensure that you travel with your voucher / eVoucher, your full valid national driving licence and other identification – please check the ‘What You’ll Need To Take’ section of your voucher / eVoucher once the car is confirmed to see if any other documentation is required.

Driving Licence 
Every driver must have a full, valid driving licence they have held for at least 1 year (2 years at certain locations; this will be confirmed during the booking process). Expired or provisional licences will not be accepted.
When booking the car, our Contact Centre must be advised of any endorsements / points on a driving licence; we reserve the right to refuse the booking on this basis, according to the terms & conditions of the car hire companies we work with.
As of June 8th 2015, any driver with a driving licence issued by the DVLA (Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority) in England, Scotland or Wales must visit View Driving Licence no more than 21 days before the start of their rental: for more about this, please click here. Any driver with a new-style photocard driving licence must also produce the accompanying paper counterpart at the car hire counter.
When picking up the car, every driver must present their licence. They must also keep their driving licence with them at all times throughout the rental, for perusal by local authorities.
No refunds will be given if a car hire company refuses to supply a car because of undisclosed endorsements – or because you cannot provide a driving licence, its counterpart, or the required information about endorsements.
Please note that when driving abroad you may require an International Driving Permit. It is the driver’s responsibility to check whether they will need an International Driving Permit. An International Driving Permit does not replace the requirement for a regular driving licence: a full driving licence in the main driver’s name will still be required in order to rent the car, and every driver requiring an International Driving Permit must keep both documents with them at all times. If an International Driving Permit is required, you will not be able to collect your rental without the permit and your driving licence.
All drivers must read the terms and conditions of the car hire company providing their car prior to pick-up, as certain companies and locations may have additional requirements.

Important Information Regarding Exchange Rates
Due to the fluctuation of exchange rates, please be aware that the amount charged to your credit card may differ from the price we quote when you agree to pay for a product or service. The difference (if any) will depend on changes to exchange rates during the period between the moment you book and the moment the charge is reflected in your credit card statement. Similarly, should we refund any money to your account, we will refund the exact amount initially charged – and will not be responsible for any fluctuations in exchange rates that lead to you receiving a larger or smaller refund than expected.

Car Capacity & Car Class 
All cars are insured for a maximum number of passengers. We cannot accept liability for the car being unsuitable for all passengers and luggage. As a guide, please refer to the DestinationANZ.com website for approximate capacities of the various car classes. We cannot accept responsibility if the car hire company refuses to supply a car because the party size is too big.

We are unable to guarantee a particular make or model of car. The car shown on your voucher / eVoucher is for guidance only and the car hire company may instead provide a different car which is deemed to be similar or superior.

Provision of Cars 
Car hire companies reserve the right to refuse a car to any person who is considered unfit to drive or does not meet eligibility requirements. We will not be liable for the completion of travel arrangements, nor for any refund, compensation or any other costs you may have to pay in such a case.

Complaints 
If you are dissatisfied with your rental, please report this to us as soon as feasible, but at least within 3 months of dropping the car off, by contacting our Customer Service Team. It is difficult for us to assess any claim regarding your rental if this action is not taken at the time of drop off.  Although when you rent a car, you enter a contractual relationship with the car hire company, whenever there’s a problem, we will try to help by contacting the car hire company on your behalf.

If the way in which we have handled your complaint is not to your full satisfaction, you may wish to raise a formal complaint with an independent Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) provider. If you wish to use ADR you may use the European Commission’s online platform to upload your complaint, which can be found at http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/. This procedure will help you find an appropriate ADR provider. Please note that as we aim to resolve disputes internally, we are not obliged to submit to an ADR procedure operated by any independent ADR provider.

Mechanical Difficulties / Accidents
In the case of breakdown or mechanical difficulties, you must call the car hire company immediately. The car hire company must give authority for repairs or replacement cars. If you are involved in an accident, the local police and the car hire company must be contacted. Keep copies of all relevant documentation you are asked to complete. This may be needed if you wish to make a claim.

Your hire of any car is subject to the terms & conditions of car hire imposed by the car hire company and to the corresponding laws of the country and/or state in which the rental takes place. You will therefore be subject both to our terms and to those of the car hire company. We accept no responsibility for and shall not be liable in respect of any loss, damage, alterations, delays or changes arising from civil strife, industrial disputes including air traffic control disputes, terrorist activity, natural or nuclear disaster, fire or adverse weather conditions, unavoidable technical problems with transport, closure or congestion of airports or ferry ports, cancellation of scheduled flights or financial failure of airlines.

Terms of Your Contract with DestinationANZ.com
However you choose to book, it is important to understand how and when a contract is formed. The technical steps required for a contract to be formed are as follows. When we quote prices over the telephone or place our services on our website, we are inviting you to make an offer for their purchase. You do not make this offer until you do so verbally or by clicking ‘Book Now’ on our ‘Payment Details’ page.

You will have made us an offer to purchase the services once you have either done so verbally or clicked ‘Book Now’. We will have accepted this offer once we have both received the necessary payment and made your voucher / eVoucher available to you. Where the arrangement with the car hire company is for us to act as an agent, acceptance of your offer is by us as agent on behalf of the car hire company.

We are responsible for losses you directly suffer as a result of us breaking this agreement if the losses are a foreseeable consequence of us breaking the agreement. Losses are foreseeable where they could be contemplated by both you and us at the time our agreement is formed. We are not responsible for indirect losses which happen as a side effect of the main loss or damage and which are not foreseeable by you and us; nor are we liable for, without limitations, loss of profits, loss of opportunity, loss of goodwill or consequential losses, damages or costs.

We shall not be liable ourselves or vicariously through the car hire companies for either any failure to perform or any delay in performing any of our obligations under or pursuant to this booking, voucher / eVoucher, rental or terms & conditions, if and in so far as performance is delayed, hindered or prevented by force majeure, which expression shall mean any event beyond the reasonable control of the party in question. In the event that the force majeure persists for more than 14 consecutive days, we may terminate and withdraw this booking by giving 14 days’ notice to your original billing address and refunding all amounts paid prior to the force majeure event.

We have the right to cancel a booking upon limited or immediate notice in certain circumstances, such as the insolvency of a car hire company. In all circumstances we will use our reasonable endeavours to arrange for the supply of an alternative car, but at periods of high demand it may not be possible. Where a customer has made a fully pre-paid booking and we notify the customer up to 48 hours before pick-up, the customer will receive a return of all monies already paid. In the unlikely circumstance we provide a fully pre-paid customer with notice of cancellation within 48 hours of pick-up, we will provide a full refund of all monies paid and cover other foreseeable losses incurred by the customer as a consequence of us breaking the agreement. Where a customer has made a deposit booking and we notify the customer up to 7 days before pick-up, the customer will receive a return of all monies already paid. Where we provide a deposit customer with notice of cancellation within 7 days of pick-up, we will provide a full refund of all monies paid and cover other foreseeable losses incurred by the customer as a consequence of us breaking the agreement.
