Your booking becomes guaranteed after Auswalk has received both your

received a confirmation email from Helloworld. A person making a group

their behalf unless otherwise communicated. We reserve the right to refuse
to accept a booking based on the information revealed to us. If you are
unsure about your suitability for your preferred trip please speak to your

Guided group trips require minimum numbers to operate and this varies
from trip to trip. We may elect, at our discretion, to operate trips with small
numbers. If numbers are particularly low, we may also elect to operate the
trip with just one guide.

Our standard advertised prices are based on two people sharing a room.
Single rooms may be available upon payment of an additional single
supplement fee. Triple rooms are not available. Solo travellers are welcome
on guided group trips. On guided group trips, if you wish to share a room,
we will try to find a roommate of the same sex. Allocations will be made in
the order bookings are received. If there is no one for you to share with, or
if you prefer a single room, you must pay the single supplement fee.
