Terms and Conditions

Book with Confidence Guarantee

For bookings made from 3rd December 2021, the Book with Confidence Guarantee is applicable if you are unable to travel due to certain COVID-19 related developments.

These include you becoming sick with COVID-19 or someone immediately connected to you does and, as a close contact, you are forced into self-isolation or there is a Government mandate preventing you from travel in/from your local area/region or in the area to which you are intending to travel.

In these cases there will be no charges levied to make changes to your booking dates. We will provide a 12-month credit with no cancellation or amendment charges added. In exceptional circumstances, determined on a case by case basis, a full refund, less a processing fee, may be offered.

In the case of a request for a COVID-19 related amendment on personal grounds, guests may be requested to provide a medical certificate, or that of their determined close contact, to confirm the medical grounds on which the request is based.

We will provide a 12-month credit or full refund (in exceptional circumstances, determined on a case by case basis).

Please be aware that where your request is to amend/cancel a booking that is not linked to COVID-19 related matters, normal T&C’s will apply.

Smoking

  • For the comfort and safety of all guests and our native wildlife, as of 31 May 2016, Russell TOP 10 Holiday Park is a smoke-free zone. This means that smoking is prohibited within the park boundaries by all staff, patrons and their guests. If you are a smoker, please ask our staff to direct you to the designated smoking area opposite the park on James Street.

Pets

  • We here at Russell TOP 10 Holiday Park love our furry friends and openly welcome them all year round on selected sites and cabins in our park. We do understand though, that some of our guests have a legitimate fear or dislike of dogs and as such, we have established a designated area for dogs in our park (see park map), as well as a clear set of rules in order for all of our guests to be able to exist in harmony.  Click here for our dog-friendly policy or ask at reception.

Vaccine Policy

Russell TOP 10 Holiday Park has a mandatory vaccination policy in place for all guests from 3rd December 2021 until further notice.

The party leader/lead booking name is responsible for communicating this requirement to all guests in their group. All guests and visitors aged over 12 years and 3 months will be required to provide proof of vaccination status via the My Vaccination Pass at the time of check-in at the park.

We will only accept My Vaccination Pass as proof of vaccination status or legitimate exemption which the digital pass is also available for.

Failure or refusal to do so may result in the park cancelling the booking with no refund except as provided for in the T&C’s.
