Terms & Conditions

The TravlBud website (Site) is owned and operated by TravlBud Pty Limited (ACN 165 181 260)

1) Agreement between You and TravlBud

Your use of the Site constitutes your agreement to all terms, conditions, notices and disclaimers.

2) Supplier goods and services

2.1) TravlBud operates the Site as a referral forum for holiday and travel services. TravlBud also provides information on the Site for a range of holiday-related suppliers and provides you with the opportunity to purchase goods or services provided by those suppliers.

2.2) We are not an agent for property owners or managers that advertise on TravlBud, nor are we an agent for any third party suppliers of other goods or services that are advertised on TravlBud (each of which is referred to in these conditions as a 'Supplier'). We are not involved in the actual transaction between you and any Supplier. You enter into any transaction with a Supplier entirely at your own risk.

2.3) Information provided on the Site about goods and services offered by a Supplier is provided by that Supplier. We do not monitor, verify or endorse information submitted by Suppliers for posting on the Site and you should be aware that such information may be inaccurate, incomplete or out-of-date. Facilities, activities or other services that form part of your booking may be subject to change.

2.4) We do not make any representation as to the safety, quality, condition or description of any goods or services provided by Suppliers that are advertised on the Site. Any issues regarding safety, quality, condition or description should be dealt with directly with the Supplier with whom you have made the booking. TravlBud is unable to provide refunds in these instances.

2.5) Suppliers may impose their own terms and conditions in relation to their goods and services. You acquire goods and services from Suppliers subject to those terms and conditions, so you should check that you agree to the terms and conditions before you confirm you’re booking.

2.6) All bookings are subject to Supplier availability.

2.7) You agree that you will only use the reservation/enquiry forms on the Site for genuine booking enquiries or reservations.

3) Reservations and Payments

3.1) If you are using the TravlBud PayPal Online Payment System, the total transaction value for a booking is required if requested. Some suppliers may accept part payments in the case of a deposit at time of reservation and balance on arrival. Suppliers will notify if split payments are available, and the procedure to make final payments.

3.2) At the time of booking through the TravlBud PayPal Online Payment System, you must pay the full amount of the booking by credit card in Australian dollars or through your own PayPal account. You will then receive a booking confirmation and reference number for your booking. You will need to use that reference should you wish to refer to your booking at a later date.

3.3) If an offer for goods or services is accepted by the Supplier, you are required to contact the Supplier to arrange payment of service. If you do not pay the agreed amount by the due date and it remains overdue for more than 48 hours, the Supplier may deem the booking to have been cancelled by you and relist the service or goods.

3.4) On receipt of funds from you, Supplier and TravlBud will confirm the sale. TravlBud receives no funds. All payments for services and goods advertised in TravlBud are paid direct into Suppliers PayPal accounts

3.5 If you are not using the TravlBud PayPal Online Payment System, you must make all arrangements for payment directly with the Supplier.


8) Security of Payment

We have taken all practical steps from both a technical and systems perspective to ensure that all of your information is well protected. A secure PayPal payment gateway is used to process all transactions and credit card details.
