Terms & Conditions

1. Bookings and Deposits:
Bookings will only be confirmed upon receipt of the completed booking form, along with the deposit of 50% of the tour cost (the balance will be subject to the advised payment schedule). Any changes to the itinerary after the reservation has been confirmed will be subject to surcharges.

2. Balance of Payment:
Full balance of payment is due no later than 3 months before departure. If booking is made within 3 months of the departure date the full amount will be payable immediately.

3. Cancellation of Booking:
Should the client need to cancel their reservation a fee will be charged to compensate Sports Travel Group (STG) for labour and expenses undertaken on behalf of the client. Cancellation 3 months or more prior to departure will incur a fee of $1,000 per person. Cancellations that happen less than 3 months before departure will result in a forfeit of the full deposit and finally, all cancellations between 1 month and the day of departure will result in the forfeit of the full tour cost. The tour suppliers may also charge cancellation fees, which are in addition to the above-mentioned fees. STG will list full details regarding these penalties, together with insurance details, which may cover you for losses such as these.

4. Changes to Tour Prices:
The tour prices are based on airfares and exchange rates at the date of printing. All relevant airfare increases prior to departure must be borne by the client. In the event of international currency fluctuations or changes to the itinerary that are required by unforeseen circumstances, the tour cost will be adjusted accordingly. All additional costs, if any must be paid by the client. Should these changes be unacceptable, the client reserves the right to cancel the reservations held, subject to the cancellation charges as detailed in Clause 3 above. Should these changes result in reduction of the tour cost, the applicable refund will be made.

5. Itineraries and Schedules:
The STG tours and packages are based on published airline schedules as well as match ticket, accommodation, and transfer prices valid at the time of printing. All of these components are subject to alteration without notice by suppliers. Consequently, STG reserves the right to alter, change or cancel any such components as it deems necessary, at any time, and without obligation.

6. Unused Tour Services:
STG will not provide refunds in respect of unused accommodation, match tickets, meals, sightseeing tours, transfers, or any other services, which are included in the tour cost, but not utilised by the client.

7. Taxes and Charges:
Airport taxes and charges are not included in the tour price and will be advised prior to departure. Some airports charge an additional fee on departure, and this is levied on the client directly, and not pre-payable by STG Hotels and service providers will also often add service fees and charges to accounts of a personal nature, which are the responsibility of the client.

8. Match Tickets:
The face value of the match ticket is not necessarily the actual price paid by the provider of such tickets. The tickets for many events are sourced through legally registered overseas ticket brokers, which build license fees and royalties into the ticket price.
