No purported variation of these conditions will be effective unless in writing and signed by a person authorised by Perfect Music Events.

Agency: Perfect Music Events (PME) acts as an agent only. We sell various travel related products on behalf of numerous transports, accommodation and other service providers, such as airlines, and boat charter operators. PME’s obligation is to make travel bookings on your behalf and to arrange relevant contracts between you and travel service providers. PME has no responsibility for these services, nor do we make or give any warranty regarding their standards. All bookings are made subject to the terms and conditions and limitations of liability imposed by these service providers. Your legal recourse is against the specific provider and not PME. If for any reason, any travel service provider is unable to provide the services for which you have contracted your remedy lies against the provider and not with PME.

Prices: All prices are subject to availability and can be withdrawn or varied without notice. Prices may also increase should postponement of your Event occur due to COVID-19 related circumstances or other Force Majeure Events. Prices are generally quoted in local office currencies which usually differ from operator currencies and may be subject to exchange rates fluctuations beyond our control until paid in full. All deposits are required to be paid before bookings will be processed. Payment of deposit means acceptance of all terms and conditions. Full payment required minimum 120 days before departure – this may be earlier subject to individual operators’ policies. Some air tickets & specials may be instant purchase. If bookings are made inside of 120 days; then full payment required immediately.

Taxes: Certain taxes are mandatory in various countries. There may also be an additional local tax charged at some airports. All taxes are subject to change without notice. The cost of taxes cannot be confirmed until the date of final payment / ticket issue, as they fluctuate daily and are subject to conversion by the rate of exchange on the day the ticket is issued. Government imposed taxes such as GST and tourist taxes can be changed and any time and any change in these tax rates must be passes onto the customer.

Event Tickets: Event tickets are included as part of your Music In Paradise package and given the limited number of tickets to these events, they are nonrefundable and non-exchangeable, except as required by law. Tickets cannot be on-sold to another person; however, they may be transferable to another person as part of a travel package booked through PME. No ticket refunds or compensation will be made where the Event program varies due to the non-appearance of an advertised artist. The Event will take place rain, hail or shine. There will be no refund of any unused portion of an Event Ticket if you are asked or forced to leave the Event for any of the reasons set out in the Event Terms or if you decide not to attend the Event.

Cancellations by the client: All deposits are non-refundable. Within 120 days of departure your balance payment will also be non-refundable. Please ensure you have the relevant travel insurance that may cover you in the case of unforeseen circumstances, including illness or accidents or COVID-19 related circumstances. Some cancellations may be partly refundable, but cancellation charges will apply. PME is unable to provide any refund to you until we receive the funds back from the relevant supplier. In the case of airline refunds, this may take up to twelve weeks. Fees will also apply where a booking is changed, or tickets/documents are reissued.

Itinerary and Event Variations and Conditions: PME as the Event Promoters, the relevant Event Accommodation Provider, along with the Event Artists, reserve the right to amend the event schedule or itinerary, any of the scheduled performances and event inclusions during the event due to unforeseen circumstances. We reserve the right to make changes, cancel or reschedule departures and itineraries. Should this become necessary we will give you reasonable notice thereof when possible, and in the circumstances and where available, we will offer you a comparable alternative or postponement. PME is not responsible for any additional costs incurred by you including, without limitation, the costs of any other travel arrangements affected due to our amendments, cancellations or rescheduling of any tour or performance as contemplated by this clause.

Force Majeure: PME will not be liable for any losses or costs or delay in, change to or cancellation of trips due to Force Majeure. “Force Majeure” means any circumstances beyond the reasonable control of PTG and includes, but is not limited to, war or threat of war, riot, civil strife, terrorist activity, industrial dispute, disease, pandemic (including any such future circumstances relating to the known COVID-19 pandemic), industrial or nuclear disaster, adverse weather conditions, cancellation of an event by the artists, government travel bans, fires and strikes.

COVID-19: Given COVID-19 is now a well-known pandemic, many resorts and other operators have now changed their terms & conditions. This means that if the artist(s) are unable to perform or we are unable to hold the Event due to any future COVID-19 related reason or Force Majeure event, the event will likely be postponed to a later date within 12 further months. Please also note that accommodation costs for the future event date are subject to the costs applied by the resort at that time and be aware that prices do seasonally fluctuate throughout the year. Any increase in accommodation costs imposed by the resort will be passed on to you as the client and will not be the responsibility of Music in Paradise.

PME reserves the right to cancel/alter scheduled dates for any event where minimum numbers are not reached. If the event is cancelled due to minimum numbers not met, all payments made in respect of the event will be fully refunded other than travel insurance policies which are outside the cooling off period.

Event Terms: Any persons who are drunk, threatening or disruptive will be asked to leave the event and may be required to leave the event venue altogether. Each event venue has their own terms, conditions, policies and procedures which the client is required to observe. No refund or recourse will be given to those asked to leave by the artist, PME, or the venue.

Liability: PME does not accept any liability of any nature, whether in contract, tort or otherwise, for the acts, omissions or default, whether negligent or otherwise, of third-party providers over whom we have no direct control. Under circumstances where liability cannot be excluded, such liability is limited to the value of the purchased travel arrangements.
