100% Kokoda need you to know that having paid a deposit to hold a space on one of our treks, that the balance of your trek payment is due six-weeks prior to the date of travel. If for some reason you can no longer trek or you choose not to trek and it is outside this six-week mark, your deposit and any monies paid towards your trek are fully refundable.
However, should you decide that you no longer wish to trek, or you are unable to trek on the chosen dates and this decision is made within six-weeks of the date of travel to Port Moresby, you have two options available to you, these options are:
Should you still want to trek at a later date, you are able to transfer all payments made to another one of our treks within a 12-month period of the original trek date.
Should you decide that you no longer wish to trek at a later date, or for some reason you are unable to trek within the 12-months that follow, then you will have to use your personal travel insurance to obtain a refund of all monies paid.
It is important that you understand the reason that we are are unable to offer you a refund with a notification that you are unable to participate within six-weeks of your trek. This is because at six-weeks prior to the date of your trek, 100% Kokoda invests your money for the services required to facilitate your trek. This investment is made with payments to external contractors to facilitate bookings for your travel, accommodation, charter flights, trekking permits and food. It is for this reason we are not in a position to refund this money to you; your money has been invested in good faith on your behalf. That said, our external contractors provide us with credits, thus we are able to transfer your trek to another date within a 12-month period.
100% Kokoda will contact you seven-weeks prior to the date of your trek date to confirm that you want us to proceed with your booking. This way you have the option to withdraw and refund your invested monies where desired, or you can choose to proceed with your booking.
Travel insurance: 100% Kokoda advises that it's in your best interests to obtain travel insurance as soon as possible after placing your deposit, even before if possible; this affords you the best chance of a full refund from your travel insurance provider in the event that you need to take this course of action. Please ensure the policy covers you from the date you depart Australia until the day of your return, and that the policy covers the specifics of your Kokoda adventure, including aeronautical evacuation should it be required. Please do not leave the purchase of a travel insurance policy until closer to the date of travel, insurance companies retain the right to refuse making payment due to a lack of time between the purchase of a policy and an application for payment.
COVID related issues: In the event that it is within six-weeks and you have become a COVID close contact, have contracted COVID, or there has been a COVID related travel ban emplaced which prevents your participation on your chosen adventure, you will receive a 100% refund on all monies up to the date of travel to your adventure destination.
PLEASE NOTE: That in the event that you are a COVID close contact or you have yourself contracted COVID, we require a letter from your physician stating these facts. We cannot release your monies without this documentation. In the event that there is a travel ban preventing your travel to or from the chosen destination or a restriction on travel that requires a period of mandated quarantine* at either your destination or home location, we will know of this, there is no further proof required, but in order to receive payment, the information detailing these restrictions must be detailed on governmental websites.
* Be advised that in the event that you have commenced your adventure and a period of mandated quarantine comes into effect at either end of your travel, we at 100% Kokoda are unable to offer you a full refund as we have already invested your trek fee for the adventure that you are currently an active participant. We will work with you in this circumstance to offer you a solution that you desire, be that to remain on the trek or to depart to your home destination** to prevent a period of mandated quarantine, be that at home or a hotel.
** Due to the remote nature of the Kokoda Trail an inability remains that we will not be able to facilitate your removal from the trek. Whilst 100% Kokoda will make all efforts to facilitate this on your behalf, 100% Kokoda does not guarantee that you will be removed from the trail for your transportation to prevented mandated period of quarantine as a result of international travel. Whilst we will do our best, you must be aware that this risk remains yours.
If you have any questions on our refund policy, please don't hesitate in calling us to discuss. We would rather you ask a question over worrying or having regret. We are here to make this an easy, and exciting process, not a stressful one.
