Refund Policy

Bookings cancelled by Southern Lakes Heliski due to inclement weather, that cannot be rescheduled, will be refunded provided that if some heli-skiing has been possible but less than the number of runs booked, then you will be refunded an amount equal to the lesser of the following amounts:

  • the price for that part of the package that has been cancelled; or

  • the aggregate of $100 per run not skied.

If you cancel in circumstances where you are entitled to a refund of your deposit, payment of any refund to a credit card will incur an administration charge of 3% of the refund amount which will be deducted from the payment.

All transactions are conducted in NZD. Due to exchange rate fluctuations, at times there may be some variance in the amounts refunded compared to the amount initially charged. No liability is accepted for these variances or any subsequent credit card/bank charges relating to these transfers.

It is recommended that you have comprehensive travel insurance to protect against unforeseen circumstances that may affect your travel plans.
