Supervision for students under 18 / under 16
World Study Travels Ltd. does not carry passengers under the age of 16 years of age unless they are accompanied by an adult (over 18) who has been given authority to act as the legal guardian.
On tours where under 16s are carried on tours a group leader must be present who assumes legal guardian responsibility. Where no group leader is present, students under 18 but over 16 (on date of travel) may travel unaccompanied subject to the following conditions: In accordance with British Council guidelines students who are aged 16 & 17 and booked on an adult course are classed as adults and are able to travel independently on World Study Travels.
However, this is at the discretion of the school/ students’ parents and school staff deem the student to be mature enough to take responsibility as an adult. Students under 16 years old must always be accompanied. World Study Travels managers can at no time accept the responsibility of guardianship or responsibility of passengers under the age of 16 years as they are there for the purpose of tour management only.
For the comfort of other passengers WST does not take under 5 year olds on the tours.

If you require additional information to that contained in the brochure then we recommend that you contact the Service Provider for further clarification.

The tour balance for all bookings will be direct debited from the payment details given at the time of booking 60 days prior to the departure date of the tour; (90 days prior to the departure for Ski-France tours) if there is a failure to complete the payment World Study Travels reserves the right to cancel the reservation.

Your responsibilities: Open tickets: You must book your travel dates in advance with the individual Service Provider as per details provided on your voucher. Tickets with booked dates: It is your responsibility to ensure you redeem your tickets on the dates booked. If you wish to change these dates you must organise it with the Service Provider directly, with adequate notice You must reconfirm all booked dates 48 hours prior to travel (minimum guide only) or in the manner stated on your voucher. If applicable, dietary requirements should also be confirmed at this time.
CANCELLATIONS and REFUNDS
Credit card fees and fees paid to us for accommodation and luggage storage are not transferable or refundable. If you cancel your travel, you must pay us a fee of 50% of the value of the travel that was booked on your behalf and cancelled (“Cancellation Fee”). In addition, if a Service Provider charges us for the cancelled travel you must also pay us the amount that we are charged on your behalf by the Service Provider. It is therefore possible your cancellation fees could be up to 100% of the cost of the booking, regardless of whether travel has commenced (for example cancellations made within 24hrs of travel or certain flight bookings).
The Cancellation Fee will apply in all cases where a tour is able to run. For example, if you are unable to reach a tour due to an “act of God” (for example a road is cut off due to flooding) the normal Cancellation Fee will apply if the tour still runs in your absence or would have run but for your absence. If a tour or other travel service is cancelled by the Service Provider, we will refund you the amount paid for the tour or other travel service less a 10% administration fee (“Admin Fee”). This full refund minus admin fee is subject to a fully refundable amount being given to World Study Travels from the supplier who is cancelling. We highlight here that all suppliers have different cancellation terms, and is on a case by case basis. Please note that in the case of Natural Disasters (eg flood, fire, cyclone, etc) many service providers do not offer any refund, hence we cannot provide a refund to you. We strongly recommend Travel Insurance to cover this situation.
The 10% Admin Fee does not apply to: Dive Courses where you fail a Dive Medical test; or Skydives cancelled by the Service Provider within 3 days of booking due to weather, and a full refund will apply.
Where a refund or other payment applies, you may choose to transfer the whole cost of the tour to another tour. However, we may charge you a transfer fee of $30.
Whilst we normally attempt to process refunds swiftly, situations (such as natural disasters) may result in up to 30 days processing time, due to high volume.
By purchasing a cancellation insurance policy at the time of entry into these terms and conditions you can reduce all risk of being subject to various fees and unexpected costs as a result of unforeseen circumstances and changes. You in some cases can claim up to 100% of the associated costs/ fees incurred through the insurance provider, dependent on the terms of policy purchased. Cancellation Fees can vary from 10% to 100% for tour and bus bookings.
We reserve the right to cancel or postpone the event to a later date in a case of low number of attendees. In a case like that, you will be eligible to a 100% refund.
We endorse the recommendation of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade that all travellers take out travel insurance. We can provide information to you about travel insurance should you require it. It’s your personal responsibility to purchase your own travel insurance to cover any liability which may be incurred to us or a Service Provider and other travel misadventures that you wish to be insured against.
We recommend that you source travel insurance with a low excess payment, to make claiming on cancelled tours worthwhile.
We endeavour to package tours that will meet your expectations. However, we take no responsibility for any matters that arise with regard to or during individual tours or arrangements with individual Service Providers.
We appreciate your feedback, whether complaints, compliments or suggestions. However, to the extent permitted by law we will not be responsible to you for any loss, expense or damage that you may suffer during any particular tour, accommodation or travel, no matter the cause. These matters are the responsibility of each individual Service Provider and you agree that you will not hold us liable in any such circumstance.
As a valued customer of World Study Travels you may receive work and travel deals and exclusive notifications from World Study Travels and brand affiliates.
We endeavour to package the best value tours available at the best prices. However, we take no responsibility for price fluctuations arising from changes in the prices charged by Service Providers occurring before final payment. Accordingly, the price of your travel is subject to change until such time as you pay for the travel in full.
Many tours have extra costs and you should be aware that there may be added expenses. These expenses will differ for each Service Provider but some of the more usual extras are: EMC Tax, Stinger suit Hire, Luggage storage, Sleeping Bag Hire, Linen Hire, National Park Fee, Food, Insurance, Accommodation, Equipment Hire, Petrol Levy. We will alert you to extra costs to the extent reasonably practicable. However, you must also check with each individual Service Provider when you confirm your ticket.

Transfers between tours may incur a $30 administration fee.
