Should the State or Federal Government impose travel restrictions, your booking may be cancelled. In the event a booking must be cancelled due to Government directives, a full refund will be provided, minus the applicable booking fee and Credit Card surcharge fee.
All reservations remain subject to the owners’ approval. The owner may cancel reservations at any time including reservations with deposits in place. The owners will make every effort to ensure the property is available as booked. However, the owners reserve the right to make alterations to bookings due to unforeseen circumstances such as: the property is sold, the property is altered in any way, changes to tariffs, malfunction of any inventory articles, the property is withdrawn from letting or the property has an owner booking. Should any of the above occur every reasonable endeavour will be made to find alternative accommodation. Otherwise all rental monies paid will be refunded in full. Travel insurance is recommended particularly for high cost bookings.
The Agent accepts no responsibility for actions by the owner of the property i.e.- property/contents altered, property sold, withdrawn from letting, increase of tariff or alterations thereto.
Payment can be made via credit card (a 2.0% surcharge will apply).
A deposit of 50% of the tariff plus the booking fee, any other fee’s incurred by a third party booking portal and any other optional costs such as linen hire, cot hire, etc is required to secure a booking and is required within three (3) business days of the booking being made. Should your booking be made after November 1 for the summer school holiday period, the tariff is to be paid in full.

The Prom Coast Holidays property service charge is not refundable.
At the time we receive your booking you will be asked to return to our office a copy of our Check In Form, Terms & Conditions, including your full credit card details. You can return your fully completed Terms and Condition via email, or posting to our office (17 Main Street, Foster VIC 3960). Failure to supply these within seven (7) days may result in your booking being cancelled.
Your credit card is required to cover any additional costs incurred including but not limited to breakage, damage, or excess cleaning requirements, etc. An estimate will be taken when the property is inspected, and this amount will be deducted immediately from the credit card provided. If the cost of the required works turns out to less than the estimate, we will reimburse you for the overpaid amount. If the invoices are higher than the amount deducted, we will deduct the outstanding amount from your credit card.

The balance of the rental amount is to be paid in full 30 days prior to entering the property or by no later than the 1st of August for our summer school holiday bookings.
Failure to pay the balance of the rental amount on time may result in the owner cancelling the booking and re-letting the property. In this instance, your booking fee is non-refundable.
4. Cancellation fee:
• Cancellations for bookings over peak holiday times (all school holidays, Easter, Christmas, Public holidays and long weekends) are refunded only when the Property is fully re-let for the same period (all dates need to be
