We will rely on the authority of the person making the booking to act on behalf of any other traveller on the booking and that person will bind all such travellers to these terms and conditions.
PASSPORTS & VISAS:
All travellers must have a valid passport for international travel and many countries require at least 6 months validity from the date of return and somecountries require a machine-readable passport.
When assisting with an international travel booking, we will assume that all travellers on the booking have a valid Australian passport. If this is not the
case, you must let us know. It is important that you ensure that you have valid passports, visas and re-entry permits which meet the requirements of immigration and other government authorities. Any fines, penalties, payments or expenditures incurred as a result of such documents not meeting the requirements of those authorities will be your sole responsibility (except to the extent caused by fault on our part). If you need information regarding visas, passports and other travel document requirements for your trip, please let your travel consultant know. We can provide you with generalinformation on visa and passport requirements that apply to international travel bookings you make with us. Our travel consultants can also obtain more specific information from an external visa advisory service provider on your behalf (if you wish, we can assist you to obtain visas through this external service and fees will apply). We do not warrant the accuracy of information provided by any external service and accept no liability for any loss or damage which you may suffer in reliance on it (except to the extent caused by fault on our part).
If you are travelling to the United States please see https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov for important information regarding compulsory pre-registration for their visawaiver program (“ESTA”). Australian passport holders will not be able to enter the United States without a valid ESTA (or visa). Please note, you may not meet the eligibility requirements of ESTA and may be required to obtain a visa.
We strongly recommend that you take out appropriate travel insurance to cover your travel arrangements. Travel insurance is also strongly recommended by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade for all overseas travel. Your insurance protection should include cover for cancellation, medical and repatriation expenses, personal injury and accident, death and loss of personal baggage and money and personal liability insurance. Evidence of such insurances should be produced to us on request. Insurance cover offered by credit card companies or reciprocal medical cover agreements are often not comprehensive. Your travel consultant can provide information to you about travel insurance. For details of the services they provide, including a quote, please refer to their FinancialServices Guide/Product Disclosure Statement.

Please note some tour or cruise operators may require all guests or all guests over a certain age to have current travel insurance and may request evidence of such insurance.
We recommend that you contact the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade or visit their website at www.smartraveller.gov.au for general travel advice, as well as specific advice (including safety alert levels) relating to thedestination you wish to visit.

We recommend that you contact the airline to confirm your scheduled departure time 24 hours prior to your flight.
MONIES NOT HELD ON TRUST:
All monies paid by you to us will be the property of Travel at 60 Pty Ltd and will be a debt due and payable to the travel service provider once the services to which the money relates have been provided (except for monies paid for flights with an IATA airline, which might be held on trust for that IATAairline). You agree and acknowledge that such monies will be held by us on trust for and on behalf of you. In accordance with ATAS requirements Travel at 60 maintains a separate client account in which all client funds are held and accounted for separately to any other funds.
If any dispute arises between you and us, the laws of Australia will apply. Youirrevocably and unconditionally submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of Australia and waive any right that you may have to object to an action being brought in those courts.
Starts at 60 Marketplace – Consumer Terms & Conditions
Please read these conditions carefully, as they apply to all transactions between us and can only be waived or varied in writing signed by us. By proceeding with a purchase on our Website, you’re indicating to us that you’ve read, understood and agreed to these conditions. If you have any questions or concerns about our conditions or Website, or any purchase you make through the Website, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
While we take every care to make sure all third party online stores are accurate and up to date, from time to time, mistakes may occur (for example, a pricing error or stock availability issue).
Please note that when you submit an order through the Website, no agreement is formed until we process and accept your order and the third party supplier sends you a confirmation. If there’s been an error leading to your order (such as a pricing or stock error), the vendor may choose not to fill the order, but they will be sure to contact you to discuss your options (for example, placing an order at the correct price, delaying your order or exchanging your item for another). If the vendor can’t or won’t fill your order, we’ll process a full refund as soon as practicable.
You agree to pay us the purchase price listed on the Website (subject of course to the proviso above, in the case of accidental errors and omissions). Prices may vary from time to time. You agree and acknowledge that we may do so at any time on notice, and that such notice is given by us posting the updated price on our Website.
You acknowledge and agree that your payment in full in cleared funds (including any postage fees, discussed below) is a condition of this agreement, any breach of which will entitle us to terminate this agreement immediately. If a request for payment is returned or denied by your financial institution or is unpaid by you for any other reason, then you’ll be liable for any associated costs incurred by us, including banking fees and charges. We may also immediately stop delivery of any goods unpaid for unless and until we receive your payment in full.
If you fail to pay us for an order, or if an insolvency event (for example, if you commit an act of bankruptcy or become insolvent) occurs in relation to you, we may suspend delivery of an order, require payment in a particular form or terminate this agreement.
We currently accept payments by paypal and credit card. We may also accept payment by other means in the future.
In making a payment, you warrant to us that you’ve read and agreed to the terms of any third party payment gateway or processor or credit provider (such as PayPal), which are available on their respective websites. You understand that these services are provided by third parties, and are made available to you on our Website for convenience only. We’re not responsible for any issues, loss or damage arising out of those facilities. If you have an issue with a third party provider on our Website, please contact them directly.
- Discounts and Coupon Codes
You’ll need an account on our Website to receive and redeem store credit. If you don’t already have an account on the Website, you’ll need to create one prior to store credit being provided.
Store credit can be redeemed for twelve (12) months from the date of issue and will expire after this date. It’ll then be unable to be redeemed, replaced or refunded.
Store credit is non-transferable and is not redeemable for cash under any circumstances, including any partial balance remaining after redemption.
- Postage and delivery
Our Vendors post products to within Australia only. They may use delivery service providers to help get the products to you.
You agree to pay postage fees as calculated at checkout.
As you know, technology is great but it’s not infallible. If there’s an error in the calculation of your postage costs the vendor will contact you before processing your order to discuss options (such as paying any additional costs or modifying your order).
The delivery service providers may change their fees from time to time, and so you acknowledge and agree that the vendor can vary the postage fees applicable to orders at any time on notice, and that such notice is given by posting the updated postage fees on the Website.
- Dispatch Timeframes
The vendors will process all orders within 48 hours of receipt of payment. Once an order is processed, they will do their best to dispatch orders on the same business day or the next business day.
We ask for your patience as this handling period may vary, for example, if they have a high volume of orders.
You acknowledge that we’re not liable for any delay in dispatch of your order.
- Delivery Timeframes
Delivery times will vary between orders – we’ll do our best to let you know when to expect your delivery, however this is largely dependent on the delivery service provider. As a guide, your orders should arrive within 7 days, unless advised otherwise.
- Delivery Address
It’s your responsibility to make sure that your postal address details are correct- we won’t be responsible for any incorrect or failed delivery if you don’t supply current, accurate postal address details. If your order is undelivered due to your error and returned to the vendor, the vendor reserves the right to require you to pay further postage fees or terminate this agreement and issue a refund in accordance with this agreement.
- Orders Lost in Transit
If you’re concerned that your order has been lost or misdelivered, we ask that you contact the vendor as soon as possible, so that they can investigate. You understand that while they’ll investigate your missing order, we make no representations as to responsibility or liability for any lost or misdelivered order. In the event of items lost or damaged in transit, you acknowledge that any liability is limited to the amount of any compensation the vendor is able to recover from the delivery service provider, less reasonable costs of investigating and applying for any compensation, unless otherwise required by law.
Risk in each order passes to you on delivery to your nominated address. You must sign for your delivery, unless you’ve given authority to leave unattended. If you’ve authorised the vendor or their agents to leave your order unattended at that address, the order will be taken to have been delivered on leaving the order at the address. If you ask the vendor to deliver to an address and you’re not there, but someone else at the address signs for the parcel, the order will be taken to have been delivered on leaving the order with that person.
If the vendor accepts a return of any goods, risk in those goods will revert to the vendor on confirmation of receipt of the returned goods. We recommend you insure goods you return to the vendor against loss or damage in transit.
- Events beyond control
As in life, sometimes circumstances beyond our control (strikes, floods, fires and extreme weather events, computer malfunctions, failure of service providers to perform services or injury or illness of key personnel) get in the way. If circumstances we can’t control affect the vendor’s ability to dispatch your order, you release the vendor from any obligation to dispatch your order while those circumstances continue. While they continue, they may choose to cancel your order, or otherwise to complete your order once things have returned to normal. If they expect a major delay, they’ll contact you to discuss a suitable solution.
- Advice and information
We may give you advice, recommendations, information or assistance in relation to products on our Website, their use or application. We give that information to you in good faith, believing it’s accurate, appropriate and reliable at the time but we don’t give any warranty of accuracy, appropriateness or reliability. Information and advice we give is general in nature and is not intended to constitute or substitute for professional or medical advice. You should seek appropriate professional or medical advice if necessary. We won’t accept any liability or responsibility (including liability for negligence) for any loss suffered because of your or any other person’s reliance on information or advice we provide on our Website, unless otherwise required by law.
- Australian Consumer Law
All goods come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law, which forms Schedule 2 to the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth) (ACL). If you are an Australian consumer for the purposes of the ACL, you are entitled to replacement or refund for a major failure and compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure.
Nothing in these terms excludes any right, guarantee or warranty you’re entitled to by law, however we do exclude all other guarantees, conditions and warranties to the maximum extent permitted by law. We also specifically exclude liability for negligence.
Wherever possible, our liability for breach of any condition, warranty or guarantee is limited, at our option, to:
- replacement of the product;
- repair of the product;
- payment of the cost of having the product repaired; or
- such other fair and reasonable remedy as we are ready and willing to provide.
We won’t be liable for any consequential loss or damage or other direct or indirect loss or damage, except where we are unable to limit or exclude such loss under the ACL.
If for any reason the ACL doesn’t apply to an order you place with us (for example, if you purchase the product for re-sale with our authorisation or if you are purchasing from outside Australia), then we exclude all liability to you and we’ll only refund an order placed if we can’t fill it, if we think it’s reasonable to do so, or otherwise as agreed in writing. Please choose carefully as we do not offer refunds for change of mind.
To make an ACL-related claim, please contact us at [email protected]
- Refund Procedure
If your goods are damaged or defective in any way on delivery, please contact the vendor on the marketplace store from which the product was ultimately purchased. If you need help please contact us on [email protected] as soon as possible to arrange a suitable remedy, such as return, exchange or refund with the vendor.
Please note that you are required to inform us of any fault with the goods in the period from delivery until the fault or problem would reasonably be expected to appear. Based on the nature of our products, we estimate this period to be approximately 30 days
- Intellectual property
You acknowledge and agree that all intellectual property rights owned by us or to which we are entitled before and after this agreement will remain our sole property and that nothing in this agreement transfers any ownership in our intellectual property rights to you.
- Dispute resolution
If a dispute arises out of these conditions or if you are unhappy with your product for any reason, we ask that you contact us in the first instance and we will do our best to resolve the issue with the vendor to our mutual satisfaction quickly, cheaply and efficiently. If the vendor is not able to resolve it within thirty (30) days, they’ll go to mediation in the state they are operating from (unless we agree to an alternative venue in writing) and split the costs of that equally. If the dispute still isn’t resolved within thirty (30) days of the mediation, either you or the vendor can ask the mediator to terminate the mediation and the mediator must do so.
We can change these conditions at any time by updating this document and giving notice to you by posting a copy on the Website. The changes will take effect immediately on their being posted.
If any part of these conditions is found to be void or unenforceable by a Court of competent jurisdiction, that part will be severed, and the rest of the agreement will remain in force.
We may terminate this agreement at any time on notice to you. All disclaimers and limitations of liability will survive termination. On giving such notice, we’ll refund any amounts paid by you in respect of undelivered goods.
As the vendors are based in the state they are operating from, these terms will be governed by the laws of the state they are operating from. In the event of any dispute, we ask that you first contact us, and we’ll do our best to resolve the dispute to our mutual satisfaction quickly, cheaply and efficiently. If you do end up in court, you agree that the exclusive venue for resolving any dispute will be in the courts of the state they are operating from and courts of appeal from them.
