  • Any cancellations after such times, monies are non-refundable. When Fairs Entrance Tickets are purchased by the society, (i.e. monies paid out) on trippers behalf, then no Refunds after purchase by the society.
  • Substitutes/name changes after the 10 days to cover others dropping out will be from the trip organiser's waiting list.
