COVID Update: For any new bookings from the 1st June 2020:
1. If government imposed travel restrictions are still in place at the time of your scheduled tour with Tour de Vines meaning you cannot travel, you have a choice of a full refund* or a tour credit without any fees or costs, or rebook onto any other tour where restrictions may not apply. There is no expiry on your credit and the credit can be used on any tour in any destination.
2. If you are joining a group tour or are part of a self guided group and are unable to join due to contracting COVID or being deemed a close contact (as defined by the relevant state authority at the time of travel), but the tour still proceeds or is able to proceed, you are entitled to a full credit for your tour booking.
3. A deposit of $100 (normally $200 for Aus and $400 for international) is required to secure a booking for all tours (except day tours which will still require payment in full noting the above term still applies).
4. Balance of payment is not due until 30 days (normally 60 days) before the tour starts, or your confirmed itinerary has been issued, whichever is the former.
5. Our standard Terms & Conditions will apply in all other instances.
*Refunds are processed after the original booked date of travel and not beforehand. This is to ensure that actual restrictions are in place to qualify for any refunds.
