Before you book

Prices – Deposits – Discounts – Payments

Your booking price will be set out in this brochure unless it is varied by advertising or a special offer, or is changed after the publication date for any reason, including without limitation, to cover changes in government taxes and charges, exchange rate variations, fuel surcharges, airline charges, a force majeure event or other material increases by suppliers. Once you pay your deposit your holiday package price is guaranteed (except for any changes resulting from a force majeure event – see below).

Choosing your holiday

The holidays contained within this brochure are for departures between 1 March 2020 and 31 December 2020. To maximise your enjoyment of your Travelmarvel holiday and to ensure that it lives up to your expectations, it is important that you choose the right holiday package for your requirements. Our brochures contain limited information, however, there is more information online at and our qualified staff are available to discuss your options.


In more remote places, hotel standards may not be quite as high as in major centres. Travelmarvel endeavours to utilise the most suitable accommodation available in each destination to ensure that passengers enjoy high levels of cleanliness, comfort and service. The hotels listed in this brochure will be used on almost all holiday packages, however, if a change is necessary for any reason, Travelmarvel will endeavour to ensure that alternative accommodation is of an equivalent standard to those shown. Hotel rooms are generally not available for check-in before 3pm and require check-out by 10am. Where guaranteed use is required outside of these times you may be required to book and pay for additional nights.

Twin or double rooms

Accommodation in all hotels, regardless of the rating, is in standard rooms (sometimes named superior/deluxe) based on twin or double unless otherwise stated. Bedding configurations on board cruises may vary with the category booked.

Solo travellers

A limited number of single rooms may be available by request at the time of booking your holiday. Single rooms/suites/cabins/are usually smaller than standard twin or double rooms and often only have one single bed.

Twin share guarantee for solo travellers

To qualify for this offer, you must be willing not to smoke in your rooms, and accept that compatibility with your roommate cannot be guaranteed. Travelmarvel will not provide a complimentary upgrade to a single room in the event of non-compatibility. If this is requested, the party requesting to move to a single room will be charged the full additional costs to upgrade, however, availability cannot be guaranteed. Twin share matchup is not available on Kimberley Coast Cruising packages.

Passengers needing special assistance

Travelmarvel welcomes passengers with disabilities or special needs however, please note the following:

1. Any disability or medical condition requiring special attention must be reported to Travelmarvel at the time of booking including all important information relating to your health, mobility and fitness which may affect your partial or total participation in the tour. This information is also crucial to allow Travelmarvel to ensure the tour you have chosen is suitable and meets your needs. Any changes to health, mobility and fitness must also be reported to Travelmarvel as soon as possible and prior to departure. Where possible Travelmarvel will make reasonable adjustments to the tour to accommodate your special needs however, it cannot do so if the adjustment required would be unreasonable in all of the circumstances, including if such adjustments would affect your safety and/or the safety and/or enjoyment of other passengers.

2. If you require special assistance or care (such as pushing a wheelchair, assistance with dressing or assistance with walking or hearing emergency alarms unaided), you must travel with a companion capable of providing the required assistance or care. Please be aware that Travelmarvel does not provide personal assistance and consequently deaf passengers must share accommodation with a person capable of hearing alarms, and are ineligible to travel alone in single rooms or cabins. Travelmarvel is unable to assist any passenger with walking, dining, boarding or disembarking any transportation vehicles (including river and ocean cruise ships and trains). To safely participate in embarkation and disembarkation you must be able to do so without the need for special assistance. You must also be able to do so without unreasonably impacting other passengers’ safety and/or enjoyment. 

3. While Travelmarvel will make reasonable efforts to accommodate the special needs of disabled passengers, it is not responsible for any denial of services by any third party entities it has travel arrangements with, such as carriers, hotels, trains, restaurants or other independent suppliers, 
or for any additional associated expenses charges by those parties.

4. Please note coaches, minibuses and 4WD vehicles are not equipped with wheelchair ramps. Many ships require the use of stairs to go between decks, as some do not have elevators. Further, side by side docking may require passengers to climb and descent stairs to cross over vessels to disembark and embark at times.  Ships often sail through remote areas that do not have convenient docking facilities. In such instances it will be necessary for passengers to negotiate temporary gangplanks and uneven surfaces.  If the crew decide it is not safe for a passenger to negotiate such operations they may require passengers to stay on board. Cabin doors and restrooms may not be wide enough to allow access by standard wheelchairs. Wheelchairs and walkers cannot be carried on coaches, due to space limitations. For safety reasons, passengers in wheelchairs cannot be carried on ramps in ports where the river or ocean cruise ship is at anchor. 

Health and fitness

A Health, Fitness & Mobility Questionnaire will be provided and requested to be completed at the time of booking if you advise us of any health, fitness or mobility issues. A good level of fitness and health is required to participate on Travelmarvel’s holiday packages. In some destinations there are extensive sightseeing excursions by foot which includes climbing of stairs. In some destinations and particularly in the Kimberley, there are extensive sightseeing excursions by foot and which includes climbing of stairs and walking over uneven surfaces and in some cases climbing over rocks and or walking through shallow streams and rivers. Kimberley cruising holidays require several wet landings, whereby feet and legs may be fully immersed in water during embarkation and disembarkation of Zodiacs. Mobility is needed boarding or alighting coaches, ships and trains. We recommend a visit to the doctor and dentist before travelling to overseas destinations. It is your responsibility to advise Travelmarvel of any pre-existing medical conditions that may affect the normal conduct of a holiday package and the enjoyment of other passengers. Travelmarvel is not liable for any injury, illness, or loss of enjoyment, which could have been reasonably prevented had we been made aware of a pre-existing condition and been provided an opportunity to review. We will not be responsible for any costs associated with cancellation penalties or the return of passengers from a tour, and a refund for lost touring cannot be claimed.

Public holidays and festivals

Australian public holidays may temporarily disrupt your holiday or result in a reduction of facilities and entertainment.

Late bookings and special offers

Many of the hotels and holiday packages included in our late bookings, promotions or special offers are also featured in Travelmarvel’s other main brochures and on its website. Late booking promotions and special offers do not apply to existing bookings unless otherwise stated. Other Special Offers, Special Deals and Special Offers other than those which are advertised in the brochure may be promoted by Travelmarvel after the brochure is released. These new special deals/offers do not apply to existing bookings unless otherwise stated.

Booking and paying for your holiday


Air travel is arranged with independent airlines. Travelmarvel will arrange air travel as advertised in connection with your holiday package or otherwise arranged with Travelmarvel. All airfares are subject to flight and booking class availability. Airfares will be booked and ticketed upon receipt of your deposit to avoid price or tax increases. Airport taxes vary for each departure point and routing of airline. Airline schedules are subject to change without notice. Once air tickets are issued, airline amendment and/or cancellation fees apply and, in some cases, are non-refundable. Name changes and voluntary date and schedule changes will incur fees. Travelmarvel is not liable for delays or disruptions of air travel. Once tickets are issued Travelmarvel will have no other liability and will not be responsible for refunding the cost of any services booked in conjunction with the flights. While we endeavour to accommodate your airline seating requests, these are never guaranteed and are subject to change at the airline’s discretion.

Airline loyalty points eligibility

Travelmarvel uses the services of a range of airlines in its packages. Travelmarvel does not warrant that its airfares attract loyalty points as airlines control the applicability of loyalty points in all cases. Requests to use loyalty points to upgrade travel need to be directed to the airline concerned by the member.

Out of date range flights

If airlines have not published their schedule at the time this brochure was printed or at the time of booking, Travelmarvel will estimate the cost of airfares connected with your holiday package. When the airline releases flight inventory and airfares, Travelmarvel will confirm seats and pricing to you by sending you an updated invoice. Once flights have been confirmed by you and payment has been received Travelmarvel will issue your ticket/s.

Travelmarvel deposit cancellation peace of mind

Applicable when an upfront fee of $95 per person is paid with your deposit. The holiday package can be cancelled prior to the final payment date and your deposit will be retained as a Travelmarvel holding credit to be used for future bookings. If Deposit Cancellation Peace of Mind is claimed, monies held must be used on a future cruise or tour and cannot be redeemed against the original cruise or tour departure date. Deposits held in credit will exclude fees imposed by third parties, including but not limited to air travel, rail travel and hotels. When booking airfares through Travelmarvel (including when taking advantage of a special offer that includes air travel), standard airline cancellation fees will apply. In some cases, airfares will be non-refundable. In the event of cancellation, these fees will be deducted from the deposit paid, and therefore, the credit being held. Travelmarvel Deposit Cancellation Peace of Mind applies to new bookings only and is only valid up until 100 days prior to travel. After three years, unused credit funds will incur the original cancellation conditions as per brochure. This does not replace travel insurance, which you are required to purchase at the time of booking.

Travel insurance

Travel Insurance is not included in your holiday package. For your protection you are required to purchase comprehensive travel insurance that includes (without limitation) coverage for the cost of your holiday package, medical expenses, loss of luggage, cruise and land content and airfare charges that may occur due to cancellation, impossibility of performance or other frustration, disruption, loss of deposit or strikes. Travel insurance is mandatory on cruising packages.

Travel information and documents

After booking you will receive an invoice with all important information relevant to your holiday package. We strongly recommend you check the details carefully and read the included information. Please ensure that you check your flight timings carefully on your tickets, particularly early morning (am) departures. Approximately 21 days before departure you will receive your e-ticket together with your final itinerary. However in the case of late bookings, charges or late payment, tickets may be emailed to you.

Special requests

Where a special request (eg. diet, room location, twin or double bedded room, a particular facility at a hotel, flight seat requests and/or particular meals) is an important factor in your choice of holiday, you must advise us when your booking is made. Travelmarvel will pass your request onto the hotel, airline or other supplier but cannot guarantee that it will be accommodated. Travelmarvel will also pass on any dietary requests to the airline but we strongly recommend that you check directly with the airline once your tickets have been issued. The provision of any special request does not constitute a term of your contract with us. Confirmation that a special request has been noted or passed on to the supplier or the inclusion of the special request on your confirmation invoice or any other documentation is not confirmation that the request will be met. Unless and until specifically confirmed by your travel agent or Travelmarvel staff, all special requests are subject to availability.

Credit and debit card surcharges

If you pay Travelmarvel by credit or debit card, surcharges will apply. In the case of credit cards a surcharge of between 1% and 3% (depending on the card used), will be added to the tour price. In the case of debit cards a charge of 0.5% will be added to the tour price.

If you want to change or cancel your holiday

Changes or additions to your holiday

If you want to change any part of your holiday arrangements after the invoice has been issued, we will do our best to make the change, but it may not be possible. Any request for changes must be made in writing by the person who made the original booking, or his or her travel agent. If it is possible to make the change, it will be subject to an administration charge of $70 and payment of any further costs incurred as a result of the change.

If we change or cancel your holiday

Website accuracy

Travelmarvel has endeavoured to ensure that the information given in this brochure about accommodation, itineraries, etc is correct to the best of its knowledge at the time of going to print. However, advertised descriptions and facilities and prices may change after publication. We recommend that you confirm the details of your chosen holiday package at the time of booking. Additionally, flight times, carriers and routes in the brochure are given for guidance only as there may be changes. Flight timings are set by airlines and affected by events outside our control. Travelmarvel will keep to the brochured itinerary as close as possible, sometimes the itinerary will change. These changes may also be a result of local conditions, weather conditions and annual events. Travelmarvel will endeavour to notify you of any significant changes prior to your departure. Final details will be shown on your tickets.

Flight changes

The flight timings shown in our brochure, on our website and detailed on your confirmation invoice are for guidance only and are subject to alteration and confirmation. Flight timings are set by airlines and affected by events outside our control. Scheduled and charter flight timings, and days of operation are also subject to change. Travelmarvel will advise you of any significant changes as soon as it is informed by the airline. Minor timing changes will be shown on your flight tickets. Any change in the identity of the airline, flight timings or aircraft type (if advised) will not entitle you to cancel or change to other arrangements without paying any applicable cancellation fees except where specified in these booking conditions.

If we change or cancel your holiday before your departure

Travelmarvel endeavours to provide you with all the services confirmed to you at the time of your booking. However, we plan arrangements a long time in advance of your departure date using independent suppliers such as airlines, hotels etc over whom we have no direct control. On occasions changes do have to be made, and Travelmarvel reserves the right to cancel or amend holiday packages/excursions accordingly. All tours require a minimum number of bookings in order to be financially viable and to have a pleasant group atmosphere. In the event that adequate numbers cannot be achieved, it may be necessary for tours to be operated by a driver-guide only or operated with smaller vehicles, or to cancel a scheduled departure and offer the nearest possible alternative date (or a refund of the monies paid for arrangements made by Travelmarvel).

Force majeure

Force Majeure means the occurrence of an event that is beyond Travelmarvel’s reasonable control and which could not have been reasonably prevented by Travelmarvel, which includes, but is not limited to: (a) war, armed conflict, criminal damage, riot, civil strife, industrial dispute, terrorist activity or the threat of any such acts; (b) natural disaster (including but not limited to flooding, fire, earthquake, landslide), adverse weather conditions, high or low water levels; (c) nuclear or other industrial accident causing environmental pollution or contamination; or (d) change in law, meaning, enactment, amendment (including repeal) in the law or administration of any law in Australia or any jurisdiction or territory relevant to the booking contract, which includes changes in statute, regulation, determination, by-law, declaration, licence and the common law as applicable from time to time, including changes or amendments in regulations or access to services, sites or countries caused by declared epidemic or pandemic events.

Termination of booking contract or change of travel arrangements due to force majeure

If Travelmarvel, in its reasonable opinion, considers that any Force Majeure event prevents Travelmarvel (whether directly or through its employees, contractors, subcontractors and agents) from lawfully or safely providing any products or services subject of the booking contract with you, Travelmarvel may immediately by written notice: (a) terminate the booking contract (in whole or in part); or (b) change your travel arrangements as reasonably practicable to ensure your safety and invoice you for any additional costs.

Limitation of liability in the event of force majeure

In the event of a force majeure event making it impossible or unsafe for Travelmarvel to deliver all or part of the Holiday Package, Travelmarvel will refund the customer for the unperformed part of the Holiday Package less any reasonable losses incurred before cancellation. Losses may amount to a substantial proportion of the booking price. Travelmarvel will use reasonable endeavours to minimise losses incurred by customers.

Alterations may be necessary for various reasons including, without limitation, road or weather conditions, strikes or other reasons beyond Travelmarvel’s reasonable control.
