Holiday Centre Refund Policy
Holiday Centre Travel ("Holiday Centre" or "we") try to ensure that we only promote Deals that our Members will enjoy. We understand, however, that occasionally, this is not always the case. This Policy sets out the circumstances in which Holiday Centre may provide refunds to our Members ("Member" or "you") in respect of a specific Deal.
Holiday Centre complies with the ADMA (the Association of Data-Driven Marketing & Advertising) Code of Conduct which requires honesty and fairness when dealing with customers.
Aiming to build consumer confidence by setting standards of best practice and ethical conduct, the Code exists to promote the highest standards of business practice and encourage consumer confidence in making purchases at a distance; Encompassing fair trading, channel regulation and privacy principles.
It is noted that Australian Consumer Law (which is part of the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth)) provides for certain statutory guarantees, which cannot be excluded, restricted or modified by us. These warranties are in in addition to any voluntary warranties provided by Holiday Centre. Nothing in this Refund Policy affects your rights under the Australian Consumer Law or similar legislation regarding statutory guarantees to the extent those rights cannot be excluded.
Bookings may be cancelled within with a full refund provided that cancellation occurs strictly within 48 hours from the time of booking. Otherwise, Offers purchased from Holiday Centre are not refundable after purchase due to a cancellation at the request of the purchaser. However, Holiday Centre will provide a refund where:
- we are required by law to do so;
- we have made a mistake in advertising an offer that fundamentally misstates the product or service that is the subject of the offer;
- prior to the redemption of the offer during the validity period as provided in the fine print of that offer, the provider of the offer ceases trading or ceases to provide the subject matter of the offer.
Circumstances that DO NOT qualify for Refunds
For the avoidance of doubt, except as set out above where bookings are cancelled within 48 hours from the time of purchase, the following are circumstances that DO NOT qualify for refunds:
- where you have contacted Holiday Centre after the conclusion of the voucher validity period. All refund requests must be submitted in writing while the offer is still valid
- where you have failed to read the Specific Terms and Conditions of the offer (located under 'The Fine Print' section on our Website on the day of the offer), and the General Terms and Conditions; or
- if you change your mind after you have purchased an offer (for whatever reason);
- if you are unable to obtain your preferred time to experience the offer (unless seeking a refund pursuant to the Holiday Centre Booking Guarantee); or
- if you lose or misplace your travel voucher or booking confirmation; or
- if the merchant on behalf of whom we are advertising the offer does not honour the terms of the offer because you have failed to present the voucher on redemption; or
- if you cannot redeem the offer prior to the end of the redemption period due to travel commitments; or
- if you cancel a scheduled booking such that the cancellation voids the voucher in accordance with the merchant’s cancellation policy
- if the Deal experience did not meet your general expectations (for whatever reason);
- if you have had a dispute with the business on behalf of whom we are advertising the offer; or
- if the Business does not have availability to redeem your voucher because you have not attempted to make a booking within a reasonable period of time (as determined by Holiday Centre) from the expiry date.
Any accidental voucher purchases will incur a processing fee but genuine mistakes will be refunded
Submitting a request for a Refund
A request for a refund must be submitted via the form located on the `Contact Us` page of the Holiday Centre Website. All Members requesting a refund will be required to provide full particulars as to why they are not satisfied with the quality of the goods and services that are the subject of an offer.
Holiday Centre will verify
Holiday Centre will verify the validity and veracity of some or all of the particulars of a request for refund by consulting with the relevant merchant responsible for fulfilling the offer. Holiday Centre may also ask you (by phone or email) to provide additional information in relation to the refund request.
Holiday Centre may refuse request
In circumstances where we believe that a request for a refund does not fall within the scope of this Policy, is misleading, incorrect and/or deceptive or is otherwise invalid, Holiday Centre may, in its absolute discretion, refuse a refund request. Holiday Centre is under no obligation to provide you with reasons as to why your request has been refused. Please note, any fraudulent refund requests will be immediately referred to the relevant authorities.
Refund to Credit Card
The refund will be credited to the Credit Card used to purchase the offer. Any refund provided by Holiday Centre is in no way an admission of liability by or on behalf of Holiday Centre or the admission of any other fact in connection with any act or omission which led to the request for a refund being submitted by the Member.
