GROUP TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Making a group booking is conditional upon there being sufficient capacity at the property to accommodate the booking and the booking being accepted by YHA.
If these payments are not received on time, YHA reserves the right to cancel your booking, retaining all previously paid funds as a cancellation fee.
Refunds and Cancellations
In the event that you have to cancel your booking, the following cancellation policy will apply:
Notice of Liability
The group leader must agree to ensure that their group will abide by the YHA requirements listed below and any reasonable instructions made by the property manager or staff. The group leader must undertake:
YHA undertakes to provide the agreed services at the agreed times by the Property. This obligation does not apply under circumstances beyond the control of YHA such as:
If you are ordering meals, please note that all catering orders and special dietary requirements need to be finalised at least 3 weeks prior to arrival. Please be aware most properties cannot facilitate self-catering by groups. Please check the information provided by each property.
Cancellation by YHA
YHA reserves the right to terminate a booking without any obligation to pay compensation if there is sufficient cause to believe that the nature of the group’s meeting at the property is different than could reasonably have been expected, based on the group’s request or on the character of the group, and that YHA would not have entered into the agreement had it known the true nature of the intended meeting. Should YHA choose to exercise this right after such meeting has commenced at the Property, the group’s payment for the services rendered to that point will be retained and the balance paid will be refunded.
As YHA Australia is a not-for-profit, membership based organisation, all bona fide groups of 10 or more people that stay with us will automatically qualify for group membership. This provides several benefits and is at no extra charge to you. Full details of this are available from our Group Coordinators.
