Website terms and conditions
(you should read this).
Effective: 9th April, 2018
Welcome to the Holiday Rescue website, these Website Terms and Conditions (Web T&C’s) are brought to you by the team at Holiday Rescue Ltd.
Thanks for taking the time to read them. When you access this website at www.holidayrescue.com.au, you’re agreeing to the Web T&C’s here. These Web T&C’s apply to all information and services we provide on our website, and the sale of any Holiday Rescue policy. You agree that you will use this website in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations.
Reading the terms of your policy.
General information only.
We can only give general advice, which means we are not able to consider your individual needs, objectives or financial situation, therefore any information on this website is general only. The PDS is designed to help you decide if our policy is right for you and if you are still unsure after reading it, we recommend you get specialist advice.
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if there is anything about our product or services that you want us to explain.
This website communicates the good stuff.
To understand your legal rights and responsibilities, you need to read the PDS. We’ve taken care to make the information on this website as clear as possible and consistent with the PDS, however we can’t guarantee that all content is accurate and complete.
Website performance anxiety
We aim to provide exceptional website performance at all times. However, there may be interruptions to services or faults at times, so we do not guarantee that our website will:
- work or be fault-free, at all times in all locations, or that errors will be corrected
- be secure or private
- be free of viruses or other harmful items (including files displayed or delivered to you, or picked up through any website linked to it)
We go to great lengths to protect your personal information from misuse, loss, unauthorised access, modification or being leaked using best practice encryption, secure transfer and physical security, but the bad guys on the internet sometimes slip past, so we recommend that you always scan for viruses before opening any downloaded items (from anywhere).
(of the website).
When there is an error we need to fix, or a big change we need to make to the website, we might have to take it away for a little while. This could happen suddenly without notice, if something happens we can’t control, or if there was some sort of a catastrophic failure, (we hope there never is – it would be very unlikely – but it is possible).
The good news is that whenever our website is missing, you can be sure we’ll be missing it more than you, and working 24/7 to get it back up as soon as humanly possible!
Legal disclaimer (another one our lawyers insisted we say).
The full legalese is below, but simply put, where permitted by the law, we are not liable for anything that happens or does not happen when you use this website, or if anything on the website is missing, delayed or interrupted (including the entire website), or if there is a system failure, computer virus or technical sabotage.
The full legal wording is:
To the maximum extent permitted by law, we disclaim liability for any damages, including, without limitation, direct or indirect, special, incidental, compensatory, exemplary or consequential damages, losses or expenses, including without limitation lost or misdirected orders, lost profits, lost goodwill, or lost or stolen programs or other data, however caused and under any theory of liability arising out of or in connection with
(a) use of this site, or the inability to use this site by any party; or
(b) any failure or performance, error, omission, interruption, defect, delay in operation or transmission; or
(c) line or system failure or the introduction of a computer virus, or other technical sabotage, even if we or our employees or representatives are advised of the possibility or likelihood of such damages, losses or expenses.
How we protect your privacy.
For Australian eyes & wallets only.

– in case you change your mind.
If you haven’t left on your trip, haven’t made a claim (and don’t intend to) – and you’re within 14 days of purchasing – you can cancel and get a full refund. You need to know that if you cancel your policy, we will not pay any claims made by you. You cannot cancel your policy if you have made a claim or if the start date of your holiday has passed. Full details are in the PDS.

We might change the rules
(these Web T&Cs).
We may update these Web T&Cs from time to time, so the Web T&Cs (as displayed here) will apply to your use of the website at the time you use it. If you visit and buy from us regularly, we’ll update the date at the top so you’ll be able to see quickly if anything may have changed since the last time you read these. Of course everything else on this website may also be updated any time, including, costs and the PDS – so please always check before you buy.
The contents of this website and any policies issued and services provided by Holiday Rescue are governed by the laws of New South Wales, Australia. The New South Wales courts in Australia, have exclusive jurisdiction.
If any terms in these Web T&Cs are found to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable by the laws of any state within Australia, then within the state where that term is illegal, invalid or unenforceable, it will be ignored from the Web T&Cs and all other terms shall continue to be required and enforceable.
We like you, you’re the responsible type.
Thanks for reading these, we know they’re not as much fun as Harry Potter – or as life-affirming as Brené Brown’s books – but our lawyers said we have to include these and we don’t want you to get caught out by anything later!
Having said that, if you have any questions or concerns about these Web T&Cs, please contact us by email at email@example.com.
