Club Trip Terms

Once a member has paid the required deposit, he/she/they have a place on the trip.

If a trip is oversubscribed, priority is based on the dates the deposits were received by the treasurer.

Full payment less deposit is requested 8 weeks before the trip.

The club may consider cancelling the trip if the potential loss to the club is significant.

In the event of a cancellation by a member, the club and the member will attempt to resell the place and if able to do so will refund the money paid in full.  If the place is not resold, the following will apply:

  • Diver cancels more than eleven weeks prior to trip, full refund
  • Cancels seven to eleven weeks prior to trip, loss of deposit.
  • Full payment must be received by 7 weeks before trip
  • Cancels less than seven weeks before, no refund and the diver owes the full balance.

Under certain extenuating circumstances the Committee may decide to refund the deposit / balance in full

If the skipper, or the club cancels the trip, the member can choose to have a refund or use the credit towards another dive trip.
