Please note that Deposits whether by wire, direct payment or credit card are non- refundable, for this reason: On the basis of your booking, we commit ourselves to the order and purchase of new bikes for our tour fleet, employ staff and secure accommodation reservations well in advance or your arrival. We  may well have  turned away other enquiries and bookings for your motorcycle, or place on the tour.

It is your responsibility to protect yourself against risk of cancellation with a good travel insurance policy.

If cancelled within 105 days of the tour departure, a cancellation fee of 100% of the tour fare will be applied.At our discretion, and with the support of our accommodation and restaurant partners, we may be able to recover & refund a portion of the accommodation and meal components

There will be no refunds or adjustments at all after the tour or rental period has commenced (e.g. arriving late or returning home early).

MORE ON TRAVEL INSURANCE: Most losses due to cancellation or late arrival can be avoided with a good, inexpensive travel insurance policy, for just a $20 to $30 per day per person.
It is your responsibility to protect yourself against your own risk of the need to cancel with a good travel insurance policy.We’re a tour provider, not  an insurance company.. :-).
Please expect us to decline refunds based on your uncovered risk.Travel insurance is generally available for less than NZ$200 per person for 14 days. Taking out a $200 policy to cover at multi-thousand dollar risk is a a no-brainer, in our opinion.
It’s our philosophy that all people have the choice to live their lives the way they choose, and thus take personal responsibility for the choices made.  :-)We can recommend travel insurers – please ask for more details.Please , please, please make sure you have covered your own risk (or don’t grumble if something goes wrong and you have to cancel….).
