We have terms! And our conditions are pretty reasonable too...

Insurance and Public Liability

Daylesford Wine Tours holds public liability insurance, however we hold no liability if you choose to drive a vehicle after the tour completion.

It is strongly recommended that you purchase your personal travel insurance before you travel, no matter how short the vacation is to ensure you are adequately covered for circumstances beyond your control i.e. cancelled/missed flights, strikes, weather conditions, sickness, inability to travel as full cancellation penalties will apply.

It is advisable to contact your insurance provider for the information on the policy that best suits your travel requirements.

Health and Safety

Whilst travelling onboard our vehicle and in the cellar doors, there is to be no consumption of own food, alcohol, or smoking of cigars/cigarettes.

Any damage incurred to the vehicle by patrons will be paid in full by them within seven (7) days including a cleaning fee of no less than $100. 

Seat belts must be worn at all times.

Daylesford Wine Tours encourages responsible drinking, and if it is felt in the opinion of the driver, that the comfort & safety of passengers is being compromised, the offending party shall no longer participate on the tour. They will be dropped off at a safe location and Daylesford Wine Tours will arrange a taxi, and at the clients own personal cost, make their own way back to their accommodation.

Due to the Daylesford region being a high fire risk area, any days deemed by the operator to be unfit for a tour due to high fire risks will be cancelled and money refunded or re-scheduled.

Tour Variations/Cancellations

Tour variations and cancellations may occur due to extreme weather conditions, vineyard closures, last minute changes received from vineyards or traffic disruptions.

If any of these circumstances should arise, Daylesford Wine Tours will revise the itinerary to impact as little as possible on the remainder of the tour. If the tour is cancelled completely, Daylesford Wine Tours will try to re-book the clients for a date convenient to both parties, or refund monies in full.


Cancellation Penalties

For all bookings made with Daylesford Wine Tours the following penalties apply:


  • For all cancellations 25% admin fee will be charged on total tour amount.
