Accommodation In Alice Springs:
You will need at least 2 nights accommodation in Alice Springs, one on the night before your camp commences and one on the date we return to Alice ie. the last date of the camp. We send information about accommodation options in Alice after we receive your booking, or beforehand upon request.
Larapinta Creative Camps strongly recommends that you obtain suitable Travel Insurance at the time you pay your $500 booking deposit.
If a Camp is Cancelled due to any Government restrictions, State or Federal, in response to Covid outbreaks or spread, you will have two options:
1)Hold over your deposit or entire payment in full for another Creative Camp in 2021 depending on availability, or for a Creative Camp in 2022. If for some reason we do not run Camps in 2022 you will receive a refund minus the admin fee of $200* at a future date .
2) Receive an immediate refund on your deposit or entire payment minus an admin fee of $200*.
If a Camp is not cancelled but you are unable to attend due to Government border restrictions that prevent you from travelling to the NT you will have the same options as above.
Please Note: We cannot reimburse you for Flights or Accommodation Expenses. Refunds for these would need to be negotiated with those suppliers.
*This admin fee is standard practice in tourism and covers our pre-tour operational and admin costs.
NB: Similar businesses such as Trek Larapinta require a $500 non- refundable deposit.
If you need to cancel due to health or other reasons:
If you notify us before 8 weeks prior to departure you will receive a refund on your deposit minus an admin fee of $200*.
Less than 8 weeks prior to departure you will forfeit your entire deposit.
Final payment is due 6 weeks in advance of the camp so if you cancel after you have made your final payment you will lose the full amount paid, it is very difficult for us to fill places at short notice. This is why it’s important you have Travel Insurance!
If we need to cancel because roads are closed due to weather or fires:
This is generally a last-minute thing, so you would have paid in full by that point. So the choices are:
1)To hold over your payment in full for another Creative Camp in 2021 depending on availability, or for a Creative Camp in 2022. If for some reason we do not run Camps in 2022 you will receive a refund minus the admin fee of $200*.
2) Receive a refund on your full payment minus an admin fee of $200*.
Please Note: We cannot reimburse you for flights or Accommodation expenses.
If we need to cancel due to our own health or other unforeseen personal reasons:
We will refund your deposit or full payment in full. No admin fee will be charged. We cannot however be held responsible for your flight or accommodation costs or cancellation fees for these services. Because of our age (Deb 67, Charlie 74) we are unable to insure our business for such unfortunate events. So If you book with us you risk the slim chance that your travel plans would have to change at your own expense, if we are unable to run a camp due to unforeseen personal reasons.
Please Note: We require a minimum of 5 participants for a camp to go ahead.
