You must not make any booking unless you have read, understood and agree with these booking terms and conditions (“Agreement”). References to “us”, “we”, “our”, or “Plan B” herein shall mean Plan B Logistics Nominees Pty Ltd (a company registered in Australia). This Agreement is between Plan B and you for your booking and associated travel management services (including our website services and facility to enter into transactions with third parties) (“Services”) and you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions contained herein. Plan B is only willing to supply Services on the terms and conditions herein and your continued receipt or use of the Services indicates your agreement to these booking terms and conditions.

Prices
All prices are subject to availability and can be withdrawn or varied without notice. Prices quoted are subject to change, which may occur by reason of matters outside our control which increase the cost of the relevant product or service. Such factors include currency fluctuations, fuel surcharges, taxes and airfare increases. Please contact your consultant for up to date prices.

Refunds, Changes & Cancellation Fees
We are unable to provide a refund to you unless and until we receive the funds from the relevant supplier. Many airline fares are non-refundable. Cancelled bookings will incur a cancellation fee and this fee can be up to 100% of the cost of the booking, regardless of whether travel has commenced. Fees and extra charges will apply where a booking is changed. Fees and extra charges will also apply when tickets or documents are re-issued. Where we incur any liability for a cancellation fee or charge for any booking which you cancel, you agree to indemnify us for the amount of that fee or charge.

Deposit and Final Payment
You will be required to pay a deposit(s) when booking, such amount and timing to be advised by your consultant. All deposits are non-refundable. Final payment is required no later than 6 weeks prior to departure unless otherwise stated by us. Some airfares or services must be paid in full at the time of booking. All payments are to be made in Australian dollars.

Payments by Credit Card
Credit card surcharges will apply when paying by credit card. If for any reason any travel service provider is unable to provide the services for which you have contracted, your remedy lies against that provider, and not against Plan B and in the event that payment has been made to Plan B by credit card, you agree that you will not seek to charge back your payment to Plan B. If payment is not received from the card issuer or its agents for any reason, you agree to pay us all amounts due on demand. For any payment by credit card, airline tickets and other documentation will not be issued until authorisation has been obtained from the relevant card company. Any confirmed booking is subject to your credit card approval for the transaction. In an eventuality where your credit card is not approved we will attempt to contact you but hold no responsibility for any subsequent non provision of services in the event we are unable to establish contact with you.
Any credit card fee is charged by Plan B as merchant and not as an agent for any other party.

Payments by B-Pay
Please note that BPAY takes up to 3 business days to process. If you are paying by this method you will need to make the payment at least 3 business days prior to the actual due date. You must notify your consultant of your payment once it has been made.

Payments by Cheque
Please note cheque payments (including bank cheques) require up to 5 business days to process. If paying by this method you will need to make the payment at least 5 business days prior to the actual due date. You agree not to stop payment of the cheque even when you cancel a booking. You agree that we may apply proceeds of cheque to satisfy any liability you have to us, including any liability in respect of cancellation fees, before refunding balance to you.

Taxes
Airline taxes are subject to change and are confirmed at the time your airline ticket is issued. There may also be a local tax charged at some airports. Unless otherwise stated, all charges and other amounts payable are exclusive of GST. If GST becomes payable on any supply made or provided, on which GST is not payable at the date of this Agreement, you will pay us (or third party provider as the context permits) an additional amount equal to value of consideration for the supply multiplied by the prevailing GST rate. For non residents booking domestic flights in Australia, GST is still applicable in circumstances where your domestic ticket is booked and ticketed separately to the international portion of your ticket or where it is subsequently separately booked and ticketed, the domestic booking is not cross referenced to the international booking

Bookings
We reserve the right at our absolute discretion to decline or accept bookings made from outside Australia. Any automatic booking confirmations for such bookings are conditional, contingent on our view of any financial risks, potential ticket despatch delays, or applicable international regulations
Plan B makes no representation that its airline price sales are identical to prices on individual airline sites that may exist from time to time.
