**UPDATE TO CANCELLATION TERMS, EFFECTIVE 18 JULY, 2020: Any new bookings made from travellers coming from regions which are excluded from travel to Queensland at the time of booking (including Victoria and Covid19 hotspots of NSW - Liverpool, Campbelltown etc) are no longer eligible for the following cancellation terms. Bookings made by travellers from these regions, who booked between 02/06/20 and 17/07/20 remain eligible for these terms:
**UPDATED COVID19 CANCELLATION TERMS FOR AUSTRALIAN TRAVELLERS ONLY - FOR BOOKINGS MADE AFTER JUNE 2**
We are currently getting many enquiries from Australian travellers who want to book for later in the year but are concerned about what will happen with their deposit if border restrictions or Government lockdown conditions are in place which prevent them from travelling. So for Australian interstate travellers, we are offering the following alteration to our Firm cancellation policy:
If you book a holiday with us for dates after July 1, 2020, and subsequently need to cancel your holiday with us due to border restrictions or government lockdown conditions which prevent the primary person booking from travelling, we will refund your booking in full or otherwise apply the full amount paid to a future booking, provided the cancellation or alteration is requested at least 2 weeks prior to your check-in date. This is to give us some chance to re-book the dates to local travellers. If your cancellation is requested less than 2 weeks from your check-in date and due to border restrictions or government lockdown, we will pay a 50% refund or credit towards a future booking. This is in recognition that it will be difficult for us to re-book the house at the last minute.
If you need to cancel for any other reason, then our Firm cancellation policy will apply (refer Homeaway Firm Cancellation policy for details).
For international travellers, unfortunately we are unable to offer flexible cancellation terms at this time due to the uncertainty relating to when international border restrictions will be lifted. We will review this policy as the situation evolves.
