Terms and Conditions

Prices & Payment Schedule

PRICING: By booking direct via www.boatshedsonthebay.co.nz, you are agreeing to the prices and payment schedule outlined on our booking form. All prices are originally set in New Zealand Dollars (NZD, inclusive of GST). If you have selected a different currency using the menu in our website's footer area, these rates may change without warning due to currency conversion. Once booked, the price you have reserved is the price you will be charged, regardless of any currency related fluctuations. The rates specified are subject to change at any time without notification.

PAYMENT SCHEDULE: There is no pre-payment or deposit required at booking. All payment requests for bookings made via our website are sent out 17 days prior to the scheduled arrival date. Full payment for an agreed booking is due no later than 14 days prior to scheduled arrival. 

We currently accept credit and debit/Eftpos card payments online via Stripe, our payment gateway. We cannot take payments in person or over the phone at this time. Your personal and financial details are securely encrypted to ensure your money and information stays safer when you pay online. Your financial information is never shared and we never see or store your credit card details when you make a booking via our website. Our checkout process is secured by HTTPS / TSL  (Transport Layer) encryption.

We also allow direct deposit payments via our checkout. To ensure there is no delay in confirming your booking, please ensure the name on the booking form matches the name on your bank account (no nicknames, please). If two different names must be supplied, please make sure to provide an accurate reference to your desired booking.

Bookings are not guaranteed until payment has been successfully received. Please be aware that if the customer transfers funds to an incorrect bank account number, it is the customer's responsibility to correct this error.

Cancellation & Non-payment Policy

All cancellations must be completed no later than 14 days prior to the scheduled check-in date. Additionally, if the customer has not provided 100% of due payment by 14 days prior to their scheduled check-in date, Boatsheds on the Bay reserves the right to cancel this booking due to non-payment.

If a booking is cancelled less than 14 days prior to the scheduled check-in date, no refund of payment will be given due to late cancellation.

If you need to reschedule a booking, please do so as soon as possible via our contact form or emailing us directly at info@boatshedsonthebay.co.nz.
