Terms and Conditions

It is your responsibility to assure that all members of your party are aware of the following terms and conditions and relay all the information provided about the flight. By making a booking or buying a gift voucher or in any other manner by which you engage our services, you accept and agree to be bound by these terms and conditions.
If you have booked via a third party, then you are also bound by their terms and conditions.

ALTERING OR CANCELLING YOUR BOOKING
In the unfortunate event you should have to cancel your booking, certain fees & conditions apply (Please Note: it is also considered a cancellation if you wish to alter or re-schedule your confirmed flight date)
Firstly, you may want to consider taking out insurance provisions in case of unforeseen circumstances including being too unwell to fly due to illness. If you are unwell or cannot make it, you may send someone else in your place if you wish – please let us know the name of the replacement person before the flight.

ON THE DAY
Under no circumstances will flights be refunded or rescheduled if passengers cancel or do not show for their ballooning experience on the morning of the scheduled flight. Gift vouchers will be forfeited.

WITHIN 48 HOURS
Within 48 hours prior to your flight no rescheduling is permitted. No refund if you cancel during this time period.

BETWEEN 48 HOURS AND 7 DAYS
Between 48 hours and 7 days prior to your rescheduled flight rescheduling is permitted (subject to availability and minimum passenger numbers met) but a $50 per person rebooking fee will be charged. Rescheduling fees are strictly non-refundable. If you have a group discount weekday flight you will need to be rescheduled on a weekday flight only, excluding public holidays. No refund if you cancel during this time period.

GROUP BOOKINGS
Strictly, no changes are to be made within 14 days of your flight date.

GIFT VOUCHERS
Gift vouchers are NON-REFUNDABLE.
BALLOONING IS EXTREMELY WEATHER DEPENDENT
There is no guarantee that the flight will be able to go ahead on the first attempt. The recipient of the voucher may have to try several times to use their voucher. The vouchers are however valid for 3 years giving the recipient plenty of time to try and fly.

Cameras and any other personal items are carried at your own risk.

WEATHER CANCELLATION
If your flight is cancelled by us for any reason, (e.g. adverse weather – safety is our first concern and we will not fly if conditions are unsuitable) we will be happy to re-book you at your convenience (subject to availability and minimum passenger numbers met) or refund the payment in full. Gift Vouchers are non-refundable so therefore a re-booking must be made for a date prior to the expiry date on the Gift Voucher. Rescheduling fees are strictly non-refundable.

We DO NOT fly you if you are pregnant.

Amazing experience

A birthday gift for my wife, our experience at Barossa Balloon Adventures was fantastic. Justin, John & Nobby we’re friendly, helpful and funny (don’t tell them that!) and our experience, and more importantly our safety, was a priority for all of them.
We couldn’t launch for the Barossa flight due to winds, so had to go with plan B – a launch by the river and a tranquil flight over the Murray and Blanchetown. The scenery was incredible and after the drive back, a lovely cooked breakfast with everything you need -even champagne! If you are looking for a special experience run by really capable guys, it is something I would highly recommend.
