Coronavirus (COVID-19) Travel Update:
1 June 2021
Due to the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) impacts on worldwide health and border restrictions, we have chosen to suspend all Topdeck trips globally until 31 August 2021. The two exceptions to this are our New Zealand Southern Explorer and Kiwi Encounter trips where we plan to be on the road, chasing feel real moments again from 4 July 2021 and 15 August 2021.
While the adventures are unfortunately still on hold, we’re monitoring the pandemic and government advice closely, so as soon as the travel restrictions are lifted and it’s safe to do so, we’ll be back on the road exploring the best of what the world has to offer! Make sure you’re ready.
If you are booked on a trip that’s been suspended:
You will automatically receive a Topdeck Travel Credit for your booking. If you have paid more than the required deposit amount - you’ll get a Travel Credit for the full amount paid by you, plus an additional $100AUD* of Travel Credit per person. If you have paid only the required deposit amount - you’ll get a Travel Credit for the full deposit amount you paid.
This applies to Topdeck bookings only. Airlines, travel agents and other travel/activity providers may impose different change and cancellation policies.
You can choose to use your Travel Credit to book a Topdeck trip that’s on sale now or hold onto your Travel Credit and wait until you’re ready to decide where to go. There’s no rush. Your Travel Credit is redeemable for travel on a trip that starts on or before 31 December 2022.
Set the real you free with added flexibility.
The world looks different. And now, so do our booking and refund policies. Re-book your trip before 30 June 2021 will benefit from our COVID-19 Assurance and EXTRA-Flexible policies – so you can spend less time worrying about adjusting your plans, and more time getting psyched about the fun stuff. Check them out now!
Once your new booking using your Travel Credit is confirmed, standard Booking Terms & Conditions and additional flexibility terms will apply.
