Please read the following terms and conditions carefully.
Introduction : The following Terms and Conditions apply to all the products and services sold by My Cruise Concierge. Your payment to My Cruise Concierge is your acknowledgement that you have read, understood and agree to be bound by these terms and conditions.
Names : All airline tickets must be issued as per passport (or photo ID for domestic trips). Carriers will deny carriage if the name varies and the booking may be cancelled. It is strongly advised that you supply a copy of your passport at the initial booking stage to ensure it is booked correctly.
Changes to flight times : It is your responsibility to contact the airline prior to departure to ensure there is no change to the schedule departure time. My Cruise Concierge will attempt to contact you if we are made aware of any such changes but will not be liable for any costs incurred if contact cannot be made. Whilst overseas, it is strongly advised that you contact the airline within 24 hours of your scheduled flight to ensure the most up-to-date information.
Flight connections : If you have purchased separate (multiple) tickets and you are transiting or connecting from one ticket to another, we cannot accept responsibility for any future schedule changes that may affect your connecting times, as they are not guaranteed. Please note that when booked on multiple airlines (and sometimes the same airline) you may need to check in your baggage with each airline at the transit point.
Frequent flyer members : Please note if you are a frequent flyer member you should retain your air ticket and boarding passes as proof of travel as My Cruise Concierge cannot be held responsible for missing points and you’ll need this proof to claim directly with the airline. Always check your boarding pass is printed with your membership number on it. It is your responsibility to check with your frequent flyer program whether the booking class on your reservation is eligible for frequent flyer points and at what rate. Not all booking classes are eligible to upgrade with points and you must notify your travel consultant at the initial booking stage so that we may allocate you the correct fare to be eligible for the upgrade system with your frequent flyer program.
Carry-on baggage restrictions : Please note there are rules for taking electronics, liquids, aerosols and gels on flights. Please ensure you familiarise yourself with these rules.
Low Cost Carriers : Bookings made on Low Cost Carriers in some instances do not include a check-in baggage allowance. Check-in baggage allowances included in the fare purchased will be listed on your booking confirmation from the airline. Please contact the airline directly prior to your scheduled departure if you require to add or increase your check-in baggage limit. Baggage fees may be charged directly by the airline for adding or increasing check-in baggage allowances, please note higher charges may be imposed at the airport for any additional requirements that are not pre-arranged. Check-in baggage fees are non-refundable once purchased.
Hotels/Resorts : All reasonable care is taken to request the bedding configuration that you wish at a hotel or resort. The final allocation will be made by the hotel/resort upon check-in and sometimes the particular room with the requested bedding configuration may not be available. My Cruise Concierge bears no responsibility for the inability of hotels/resorts to facilitate your bedding request.
Passports, Visas & Health Requirements: Visas, including transit visas, are the passengers own responsibility. For more information please log on to: www.dfat.gov.au or www.smartraveller.gov.au.
Please check with the respective Embassy or Consulate of each country that you are scheduled to visit, as many destinations require visas for both Australian and Non-Australian Passport holders.
A visa does not guarantee you entry to a country or permit you to remain in it. Some countries may refuse you entry because of your health, condition, or for other circumstances or reasons, or may detain, expel or repatriate you. This is your own responsibility and there will be no liability to My Cruise Concierge in any of these instances.
It is your own responsibility to ensure all travellers hold valid passports and that their validity is enough for the countries travelling to, including any transit countries. Any penalties, or extra costs incurred if any documents are not accepted by any authority will be your responsibility.
Please ensure you have at least 6 months validity on your passport from the date of your return and that the first name and surname that you provide for your reservation are exactly the same as they appear on your passport. Amendment fees apply to all name changes and sometimes incur cancellation and rebooking fees.
International travellers booked on flights to the United States, including Hawaii, must pre-register their intent to travel under the US Visa Waiver Program. Applications can be made via the Electronic System for Travel Authorisation website, and each passenger must complete this application a minimum of 72 hours prior to their flight departure. Passengers who fail to complete their application may be refused to board their flight by the airline.
Re-entry visas may be required for travellers returning to Australia on foreign passports. It is your own responsibility to ensure you have the correct documentation in place prior to departing Australia.
It is your responsibility to ensure that you are aware of any health requirements for your travel destinations and to ensure that you carry all necessary vaccination documentation. Some countries require vaccinations to RETURN to Australia (eg. proof of Yellow Fever vaccination), so ensure you are informed of your responsibilities for both home and abroad. Check with your doctor and the relevant embassies.
Pricing : Prices are not guaranteed until paid in full and documents have been issued. Unless otherwise stated, prices shown are in Australian Dollars (AUD) and are fully inclusive of taxes, levies, government charges and other applicable fees.
For some international travel product, pricing has been converted to AUD using the exchange rate at the
time the booking is made. Variations to your final price may occur due to currency fluctuations and must be requoted on the date of payment. Some fares and specials may be withdrawn without notice, sometimes on the same day as quoting. AHTG bears no responsibility to honour a price that is no longer available.
If travel is booked for more than one traveller, and the traveller number decreases, the price will increase for the remaining travellers in most cases.
Infants/children: Please note that bookings for infants do NOT include a seat on an aircraft unless a child price has been paid for. Most hotels/resorts will charge a daily fee on arrival for use of a rollaway or cot. These charges are solely the traveller’s responsibility to pay directly.
