2.1 Unless otherwise stated, all prices stated are in New Zealand dollars and are inclusive of all taxes including goods & services tax (GST), airport taxes, fuel surcharges and insurance levies. Certain taxes are mandatory in various countries. There may also be an additional local tax charged at some airports. All taxes are subject to change without notice. Airline taxes will be confirmed at the time your airline ticket is issued.
2.2 All prices featured on this website are subject to availability and conditions are subject to change without notice. We are reliant on information supplied to us by providers and other third parties. Therefore, prices and availability may change after prices are published on this website and before you book your holiday or travel arrangements. Whilst all endeavours are made to ensure all information on this website is accurate and up to date, by using this website you acknowledge that we have no responsibility for the accuracy, completeness, currency or availability of this information.
2.3 Your agreement for any travel booked featured on our website is with the relevant provider, and we act as an agent only. Our obligation to you is to (and you expressly authorise us to) make travel bookings on your behalf and to arrange relevant contracts between you and travel providers including bookings made via our website. All bookings are made subject to the terms and conditions, including conditions of carriage and limitations of liability, imposed by these providers. We can provide you with copies of the relevant provider’s terms and conditions on request. Your legal rights in connection with the provision of travel services are against the specific provider and, except to the extent a problem is caused solely by fault on our part, are not against the First Travel Group member (and, to that extent, are subject to clause 1.10).

3 – General Booking Conditions
3.1 You are responsible for obtaining all passport, visa and health information required. We will assist you to obtain such information on request, however, the final responsibility for obtaining the necessary information and complying with any passport, visa and health requirements remains with you. When assisting with an international travel booking, we will assume that all travellers on the booking have a valid New Zealand passport.
3.2 Special requests will be passed on to the travel providers but can never be guaranteed. We should be advised of any special request no later than 7 days prior to departure.
3.3 All airlines have their own rules and regulations with regard to ticketing. We will not accept responsibility for non-compliance with such regulations and strongly recommend that you check these details with the airline prior to travel.
3.4 We do not take responsibility for any flight time or number alteration made by airlines.
3.5 Your ability to amend and cancel bookings is dependent upon the terms and conditions applied by each travel provider. Cancelled bookings may incur providers fees, which can be up to 100% of the cost of the booking, regardless of whether travel has commenced. Provider fees may also apply where a booking is changed and when tickets or documents are re-issued. Where a First Travel Group member incurs any liability for a provider cancellation fee for any booking which you change or cancel, you agree to indemnify the First Travel Group member for the amount of that fee. Where you seek a refund for a cancelled booking for which payment has been made to the provider, the First Travel Group member will not provide a refund to you until we receives the funds from that provider. In additional, the First Travel Group member reserves the right to charge its own fees for any requested amendments or cancellations.
3.6 We strongly recommend that you take out appropriate travel insurance to cover your travel arrangements. We will not take responsibility for, and have no liability to, any clients who choose not to take out a comprehensive travel insurance cover for travel arrangements made.
