HELICOPTERS - TERMS & CONDITIONS
Charter by Fixed Price
Our quotation provides an all-inclusive price for a specific service of helicopter availability, flying time and ancillary costs. Any additional availability; flight or costs incurred due to the customer changing the requirements from that originally quoted will be subject to additional charges. Reduced requirements will not necessarily be subject to a reduced charge, which will in any case be solely at the discretion of our partner company.
There is no guaranteed refund or compensation if helicopters do not fly on all or any part of your tour due to weather conditions. We highly recommend you take insurance to cover this. Please do not hesitate to ask us for suggested companies to provide insurance.
Any flight cancelled by the customer will be subject to cancellation fees at the following scale of charges:
Cancellation Notice Charge – General Flights
- Less than 30 days 100% of total cost
If no notice is given or be deemed to have been given, 100% of the total cost or the full charge for any flying which has been undertaken, whichever is the greater, will be payable by the customer.
In the event of cancellation or early termination of flights due to weather:
- We will endeavour to re-assign bookings to a day/s of suitable weather, subject to helicopter and crew availability.
- The pilot will endeavour to advise of the likelihood of unsuitable weather, it accepts no responsibility for the accuracy of any forecast provided.
- We reserves the right to charge for availability of the helicopter and costs already incurred on behalf of the customer.
The pilot alone shall decide on the suitability of the weather for safe flight for any operation. In the event that the pilot elects to cancel a flight, we shall endeavour to arrange alternative transport for the customer, if the customer so requires. Under no circumstances shall we be liable for loss incurred by customers or their passengers of whatsoever nature whether direct, indirect or consequential by reason of the cancellation or delay of a flight howsoever caused.
Our partner company will not seek to limit or exclude liability to you or your family in the event you are injured or killed as a result of an accident on a flight. However, if you cause or contribute to your injury or death by your own negligence, then the company may be exonerated from liability wholly or in part.
