Terms and Conditions
By making a booking payment/deposit, you agree to these terms.
Our booking confirmation indicates that your spot has been reserved on the trip. These booking conditions require you to comply with all your obligations to fully secure your place on the trip.
It is important to read the refund conditions carefully, as we operate a variety of trips with different operational requirements.
1. Booking Terms & Conditions Changes
We may amend the booking terms and conditions at any time by notice to you or by posting a notice on www.womenwantadventure.com.au. Except in the case of minor changes that do not affect your rights, we will provide at least 30 days’ notice before the amendment becomes effective.
2. Trip Bookings
If you would like to participate in a Women Want Adventure Trip, you must book via our website, complete all required fields for personal information, including any medical information, and agree to these booking terms and conditions. All prices are per person and inclusive of GST.
Prices vary depending on the trip. All trip prices are in Australian dollars (AUD). The prices represent the most current prices per person. While Women Want Adventure does its best not to increase trip prices, due to accommodations bookings, logistics, and time of year of trip, prices may need to be altered. If a third party's charges to us increase, Women Want Adventure may amend our trip prices at any time.
There is a minimum age of 18 years old.
Most of our trips do not have an upper age limit, but please remember that our trips can be physically demanding, so you should ensure that you are fit enough to participate fully. A medical clearance certificate is required if you are over 65 years old.
We are able to provide information on mandatory health requirements for trips, but we are not medical experts. Before traveling and before departure, you should seek medical advice for the latest health requirements and recommendations for your destination.
You acknowledge the nature of the trip is adventurous and participation involves a degree of personal risk. Natural, cultural, and geographical characteristics of these places present dangers and physical challenges that are greater than those we encounter in our daily lives. For assessing whether the itinerary should operate, we rely on reports from government foreign departments as well as our own contacts. In addition, you must familiarise yourself with all relevant travel information and the nature of your itinerary. Your decision to travel is informed by this information, and you acknowledge that you are aware of the personal risks involved.
6. Requirements for health and fitness
On the booking page, each trip is graded according to its level of difficulty. It is imperative that you are physically prepared for the trip. If you are not physically prepared you may need to or be asked at times to miss/skip certain days or portions of your trip. Refer to our trip grading for more information. You must be in good health and physical condition and are strongly advised to follow our pre departure fitness training recommendations. You will be required to submit our medical questionnaire online or for international larger trips (form) as proof that you are fit enough to participate in the tour 70 days prior to departure.

Medical and evacuation expenses will be your responsibility, but insurance may cover you depending on the circumstances. While we do not discriminate by age, due to the extreme nature of many of our trips we strongly discourage participants over 65 years of age. Women Want Adventure reserves the right in its absolute discretion to refuse a participant the right to participate on a trip and our standard cancellation terms will apply in these circumstances if the participant does not meet the fitness, health and medical requirements to safely complete the trip.

You acknowledge that the obligation to disclose under this condition continues from the time of booking the tour through to departure and extends for the duration of the tour.
