Need a Custom Itinerary

If you won’t be travelling from Christchurch, or require any customizations to your own travel, HCB are more than happy to accommodate you, just give Jacquie a call

Tour Swag

As we get close to the time, we will also arrange some branded tour gear (e.g. shirts/hats etc.). There will be an additional cost associated with this, depending on sponsorship. Details TBD.

Payment Terms

HCB require a non refundable deposit of 30% ASAP to guarantee flights (if required), and preferred accommodation and reserved seating at the cricket, with final balance due mid August.

As you are paying 30% non refundable deposits, we recommend you taking out travel insurance at this time, which will cover you for your travel period, as well as prior with cancellation costs should you need to pull out for any unforeseen circumstance. Please come through to us with your date of birth if you would like us to obtain a quote for you. Also at this time if there are any pre existing medical conditions these would also need to be disclosed.

Prices for coach transfers to and from Melbourne airport will be worked out later and cost advised once we know how many travellers, who will be staying at which property etc.

What next?

If you are interested in attending, confirm your spot by paying a 30% deposit to Holland Clarke & Beatson as soon as possible. Final payments are due mid-August.
