Notices

  • All per person prices quoted are in Australian dollars and valid from 1st April 2024 to 31st March 2025.
  • During peak seasons, weekends, and student holidays, tour group spots and train seats tend to fill up quickly. In cases of full capacity, it may be necessary to provide refunds or request additional payments to switch to alternative or upgraded train classes. Before issuing tickets, our company reserves the right to adjust train ticket prices based on seasonal demand and occupancy rates. If the adjusted price is higher than the original selling price, you may choose to accept the new price or receive a refund. Once tickets are issued, changes to the itinerary cannot be made.
  • A booking is confirmed (and a contract between you and us comes into effect) when:
    • You have made a Booking and have provided us with all necessary information to process your request;
    • You have paid us the amount (and any other amounts payable at the time of making the Booking) in accordance with these Booking Conditions; and
    • We have sent you a Booking Confirmation.
  • We commence providing services to you as soon as we confirm your booking. This includes (often significant) work undertaken prior to travel to arrange and coordinate the delivery of
    your Journey. You also receive the benefit of work we undertake in anticipation of bookings.
  • If we cancel your Journey for reasons other than Force Majeure (see below), you will be offered (at your election) a refund of all funds received, the offer of an alternative Journey of comparable quality if appropriate or a Credit Note. If we cancelled a Rail Journey aboard The Overland due to either the Victorian or South Australian State Government’s decision
    to cease funding for The Overland, then we will provide you with a refund of all funds paid.
  • To the fullest extent permitted by law, we will not be responsible for any other loss or costs you incur (for example, airfares not included in your Journey, insurance and visa expenses)
    if your Journey or particular Journey Services are cancelled for any reason.
  • Due to the dynamic nature of the travel industry, we may occasionally need to make amendments or modifications to the itinerary of your Journey and its inclusions (including Off Train Excursions) and you acknowledge our right to do this. Most changes will not be significant. If we become aware of any significant changes to your Journey’s itinerary or its inclusions that materially detract from the overall characteristics or value of the Journey (where we determine it can still proceed), then we will notify you within a reasonable time and you may elect to:
    • proceed with the Journey, in which case we will refund you an amount attributable to the reduction in value determined by us acting reasonably; or
    • cancel your Journey, in which case we will refund the Journey Price received by us at that time.
  • It is strongly encouraged that you are adequately insured for the duration of your Journey. We recommend comprehensive travel insurance to cover cancellation, medical requirements, medical evacuation, luggage and additional expenses. The choice of insurer is yours. We strongly suggest you purchase insurance at the time you pay your Deposit.
    This is because cancellation fees may be payable from that time.
  • It is your responsibility to ensure that you have a suitable level of health and fitness to undertake the Journey. For all Rail Journeys (other than The Overland, where we will make requests only in particular circumstances), you must complete our Fitness to Travel Form accessible here (https://www.journeybeyondrail.com.au/terms-conditions/) within a
    reasonable time after we issue your Booking Confirmation and in any event prior to travel.
  • We may cancel your booking or refuse to board you without any right of refund if you fail to complete the Fitness to Travel Form within a reasonable time after we have reminded
    you to do so.
  • Special dietary requests are required to be notified to us within 7 days after we issue your Booking Confirmation.
  • Check-in: You must check in with our representative at the location stated on your Final Travel Documents within the following timeframes:
    • for The Ghan, Indian Pacific and Great Southern: no more than 2.5 hours and no later than 1 hour prior to the scheduled departure; and
    • for the Overland, no more than one hour and no later than 30 minutes prior to the scheduled departure.
    • You must show suitable photo identification to the representative when checking in
  • All Journey Beyond Rail trains are entirely smoke free in accordance with relevant state government regulations. You must not smoke (including e-cigarettes) on the train.
  • No refunds will be made for of any Journey Services not utilised, whether by choice or because of late arrival or early departure. This includes the failure of commercial transport to operate according to schedule, which we disclaim responsibility for. This does not apply if the reason for your late arrival or early departure was due to our negligence.
  • We and our suppliers may take photographs or make recordings of you and your activities that identify you during the Journey. We reserve the right to use any images and/
    or recordings for promotional and marketing purposes. You consent to this use and acknowledge you will not be entitled to any payment or other compensation. If you do not
    consent to the use of your image or likeness, please advise us as least 21 days prior to the commencement of your Journey.
