Cancellations & Amendments

Cancellation of Booking

Hotel guests will be subject to the cancellation policy of their nominated hotel. Please refer to the cancellation policy outlined for your preferred property.

Time limits

We encourage delegates to book accommodation well in advance because hotels impose strict release dates for block accommodation bookings. All rooms are released 30 days prior to the meeting and therefore accommodation bookings requested after 31 August 2018 cannot be booked through the registration portal and will need to be secured by delegates through the hotels directly.

Deposit

A credit card is required to complete the booking process, even if the card will not be used to pay for the accommodation.

Either one night’s accommodation rate or a credit card is required to secure your room. Delegates are required to settle their own accounts including incidentals incurred upon check out. This deposit or your credit card guarantee will be forwarded onto the hotel. The hotel will deduct the guarantee from your credit card at their discretion.

Amendments to Booking

Amendments to accommodation including hotel preference, check in/out dates and room type will only be accepted in writing to Encanta Event Management.

Early Arrival or Late Departure

Requests for early check in or late check out must be advised in writing to Encanta Event Management Pty Ltd to brittany.crawford@encanta.com.au. Please note that early check in may require the booking of an additional room night prior to guarantee immediate access to the hotel room.

Warning – fraudulent websites and booking agencies

Register Safely

The meeting industry is confronted with an increasing number of fraudulent websites that impersonate legitimate meeting websites, and booking agencies that are not authorised to make bookings for meeting participants.

Encanta Event Management wishes to advise delegates to be aware of possible scams and urges all participants to only use the official website australasianroadsafetyconference.com.au.

Encanta Event Management is the only official accommodation agency for this conference. If you are contacted by any other company or agency offering accommodation for Australasian College of Road Safety (ACRS) Conference, please note that these companies are not authorised to represent ARSC2018 in any way, nor do they have access to the officially contracted room blocks or rates.

Imitation sites and agencies invite meeting participants to supply their personal details including credit card information, in return for a promise to provide travel and accommodation. Please be aware that these unauthorised companies might not deliver what they promise, and in fact may not deliver anything to the meeting participant at all despite charging the credit card.

If you have any questions around the legitimacy of a supposed meeting website, or are contacted by any such agency, please don’t hesitate to contact us at Brittany.crawford@encanta.com.au  03 9863 7608
