Cancelation Policy - Kaweka Hunting

Terms and Conditions of our Hunts

REFUND OF DEPOSIT

As a rule, deposits paid to Kaweka Hunting Ltd are non-refundable, therefore Kaweka Hunting advises all hunters to purchase travel/hunt insurance. Exceptions to this rule are occasionally made but only in the case of exceptional circumstances where appropriate supporting documentation is supplied to
Kaweka Hunting who will make a decision based on a case-by-case basis.

SHELF LIFE OF DEPOSIT

Deposits paid to Kaweka Hunting will retain their value 100% for a length of 3 years from date of payment. After 3 years, the deposit loses 25% value per year.

NOTIFICATION OF CANCELLATION

Kaweka Hunting Ltd must be notified directly of any cancellation by November 1 on the year before the contracted hunt date. Hunt dates can be freely altered without penalty until November 1. After November 1, the cancellation will be regarded as ‘short notice’.

SHORT NOTICE CANCELLATIONS

The hunter may incur a penalty of 25% of the contract value if the hunt dates cannot be ‘re booked’ by new contracts. The hunter is welcome to send another hunter in place of oneself if cancellation is the only other option but the hunt cannot be publicly sold or advertised (ie, E-bay, classified ad).

The remaining deposit will be transferrable to a hunt the following year, with the applicable pricing for that year to be in effect – any increases for the rescheduled year will be payable by the hunter.
The re-scheduled date is at the discretion of the hunter.

REDUCTION IN PENALTY FOR SHORT NOTICE CANCELLATION

Hunters who have cancelled with short notice may elect to be allocated dates for the rescheduled hunt for a 10% reduction in penalty from 25% to 15%. Date allocations for rescheduling will be made available between November 1 and November 10 each year on a ‘first come first served’ basis.

TRANSFER OF DEPOSIT TO ANOTHER DATE IN SAME SEASON

If a hunter needs to alter a hunt date to another date within the same season, this can be done without any financial penalty provided the alternate date is available.
