For cancellations initiated by the customer prior to departure of the walk, the following cancellation fees apply:

Note: If we are unable to operate or choose to cancel a trip prior to departure, all guests on that trip will receive a full refund or can be rebooked at no additional cost. Please note that once a trip begins we reserve the right to make changes in the itinerary for the safety and comfort of the guests.


Coronavirus Clause

If Hollyford Valley Walks are not able to operate or the public are not able to travel due to restrictions imposed by government, you will receive a full refund. However, if you contract Coronavirus or are in managed isolation due to an individual case of Coronavirus, you will need to seek an insurance claim.

If there are border restrictions in New Zealand 90 days from your departure due to Covid-19, Hollyford Valley Walks reserves the right to cancel any booking where:

i. The booking was made from outside New Zealand
ii. Any person that the booking is for is not in New Zealand
iii. You are not able to show that you will be legally entitled to be, and practically able to be, in New Zealand at the time of your trip departure.

Where a booking is cancelled in accordance with the above, notification will be provided to you in writing, and a refund will be applied. Hollyford Valley Walks agrees to waive any cancellation fee that may normally be payable.


Travel Insurance

We strongly recommend all guests, both New Zealand citizens, residents and overseas visitors, purchase travel insurance. This should guard against loss of fares paid should you have to cancel the trip for any reason within our cancellation period. Travel insurance may cover cancellations due to reasons such as falling ill or having an accident prior to the trip, a family bereavement, missing a flight to Queenstown and therefore missing the trip departure etc.

Once your trip has commenced, ACC (Accident Compensation Corporation) will cover any accidents that occur on the track for both New Zealand citizens, residents and overseas visitors. Should any guest suffer an illness on the track such as a stroke or heart attack, St John New Zealand will cover the cost of a helicopter evacuation for all New Zealand citizens and those holding a work or permanent residency visa and long term Australian residents. All other tourists will have to pay for such an evacuation.
