COVID-19 Disclaimer
GPT has compiled the content of all tour itineraries based on the knowledge that all accommodation and attraction suppliers will be fully operational by commencement of the 2021/22 touring season. If for any reason the component of a tour is not available at the time of touring, a replacement or refund will be provided. Any refund amount is based on GPT’s negotiated pricing and not retail prices. GUARANTEED DEPARTURES: GPT promote guaranteed departures with full expectation of delivering this, which has been a key selling point for 25 years.  However, due to COVID-19, with no visibility on the timeframe of opening the Trans-Tasman or International borders at the time of print (Sept 2020), all bookings for the 2021/22 season will initially be administered with an ‘ON HOLD’ status until Trans-Tasman borders open. Once Trans-Tasman borders open, GPT will then reconfirm the selection of guaranteed departure dates that will travel and reserve the right to remove selected dates based on sell time. If any of your clients are affected the GPT team will be in contact at this time to make alternative arrangements for travel on a near or future date.
