Extenuating Circumstances Policy
The Tasmanian Rover Ski Club (TRSC) may be able to give you a credit or refund for part of your booking fee if you have to cancel because of an unexpected circumstance that is out of your control. Below is a list of circumstances covered by this Policy. Before you cancel, please check that your circumstance is included in the list below and that you can provide the required documentation. Cancellations under this policy are only available for extenuating circumstances that occur before the official check-in date for your reservation.
If the residential address (as provided at the time the booking was made) of the person making the booking is within Australia, then a credit equal to the amount of the accommodation fee shall be issued. The credit will be valid for accommodation (subject to availability) until the end of the winter operating season of the following calendar year, after which it will expire. It is recommended that persons issued a credit, lodge their preferred dates for accommodation with the TRSC booking officer as early as possible.
If the residential address (as provided at the time the booking was made) of the person making the booking is outside of Australia, then a refund equal to the amount of the accommodation fee less an administration fee of $50 shall be issued. Alternatively, the person may elect to receive a credit under the same conditions as a person residing within Australia.
