  • All bookings which require a refund will incur a $25 administration fee and forfeit of the $16 non-refundable booking fee.    

+ If you have booked via a 3rd party booking site such as Stayz.com, Booking.com etc. their cancellation policy will override this.  Please ensure you are familiar with the policy you have agreed to at the time of booking.

All cancellations must be received in writing via email to be applied.

4. The number of occupants shall not exceed the agreed number at time of arrival. Any extra guests than agreed upon at time of booking must be declared at least 5 days prior to arrival, and payment must be made accordingly. If the number of guests exceeds agreed numbers AVG reserves the right to gain immediate possession of the property with no refund.

5. Standard check-in time is from 2pm on date of arrival (Some properties are 3pm). Check-out time is 10am on date of departure.

  • Guests fail to depart by 10am on departure date without prior arrangement of late check-out (as outlined in 5).

7. Well behaved pets are permitted only at said ‘pet friendly’ properties and are strictly NOT permitted at any other properties. It is the guest’s responsibility to inform AVG that pets will be in attendance. If guests fail to declare pets, AVG reserves the right to gain immediate possession of the property with no refund. Strict rules apply to all pet friendly properties, these rules apply to dogs - cats are not permitted under any circumstances :

    • Pets are not permitted to enter the property unattended, wet or dirty.
    • Dogs must NEVER be left inside the accommodation without an owner present - if a dog is left inside unattended instant eviction will apply with no refund.
    • Your information will indicate whether the property is fenced or not. Some dogs are crafty houdini's and some jump like Olympian pole vaulters.  We cannot guarantee that your dog will not outsmart the boundaries so please use your sensibility when leaving the dog alone.
    • Alpine Shire dog policies require a maximum of 2 dogs to be present at any property.  Special permits are required to bring 3 or more dogs to any property within the Alpine Shire.  3 dogs or more residing in a property without a permit may be removed by Alpine Shire Rangers.
    • Pets are STRICTLY prohibited from using beds or furniture. Bedding or mat & equipment is to be provided by owners. A dry cleaning charge will apply if pet hair needs to be removed from bedding & furniture or is excessive on mats & carpets.  Please do not attempt to put a blanket on a bed for your dog, do not allow dogs on furniture under any circumstances. 
    • Dogs are not to be washed inside the property in baths or showers.
    • Please do not wash dog blankets in the properties machine.  We are pretty sure the next guests will not appreciate your dogs hair in the cycle with their babies clothes.  
    • If your dog is a shedder, please use sensibility and keep them off areas where hair will be an issue or please clean up their hair before you leave.  Please try at all times to limit your dogs access to tiled or floored areas whenever possible.
    • Owners are responsible for removing any mess in gardens upon vacating the property.  Please respect our housekeepers & future guests by cleaning up your dogs mess - no-one else should have to and I'm sure you agree.
    • Please ensure your dogs do not claw at fly screens.  Any claw holes in screens will require full replacement at the guests expense.
    • Failure to comply with regulations could incur additional charges and may result in eviction from the property with no refund
    • Some dog friendly properties are fenced, some are unfenced.  It is 100% the guest's responsibility to determine whether the property will be suitable for the needs of their particular breed.  Some small dogs and dogs that jump/escape may not be secure at any properties, even those considered fully fenced - it is assumed that all dogs travelling with owners will be well behaved and will not attempt to leave the property.  Again, the onus of responsibility lies with the owner to enquire about the needs of their dog.

8. It is the guest’s responsibility to determine whether bedding & linen will be supplied with their accommodation based on information contained in the confirmation information.  Please allow at least 5 days notice if you would like AVG to provide linen at your property.
