Global Ballooning Australia will hold tentative bookings for no more than 7 days without a 50% deposit being made. Final payment is due 4 weeks prior to flight date. Cancellations made after final payment is made will not be refundable. If you wish to book inside the 4 weeks immediate payment will be required.
When you phone to book your flight, please advise the following:
No. If the flight is cancelled due to bad weather, you will have 12 months to rebook the balloon flight for another date, however unable to receive a refund.
These packages are wheelchair accessible.
We always meet 1 hour before sunrise and this time will vary throughout the different seasons, this is a rough guide only.
For transfers from Melbourne to the Yarra Valley, expect an earlier start by adding another hour to the times shown below.
Safety is our first consideration and we will not fly if conditions are unsuitable. We will do our best closer to the date to try and get you to fly on or around your chosen date, however in some circumstances this is not always possible. If you are weathered out, you may re-book your flight, or alternatively we can arrange a ceremony to be held at Rochford Wines as a back up location should you wish to be married the same day. In the instance that your flight is cancelled due to inclement weather and you require a refund, a cancellation fee of 15% will apply. If you can not re-schedule your flight an alternate option to a refund, which you may like to consider, is to offer each passenger an open dated flight certificate to experience ballooning at a later date in any of our locations in Victoria. We can arrange to have these posted out to all guests. Alternatively, you can use this 15% fee amount as credit towards another Global Ballooning Australia flight, package or voucher.
Flights will only proceed if it is safe enough to fly. Your pilot will let you know the night before your flight whether or not it will be going ahead. Global Ballooning Australia prides itself on as being Australia's most credential ballooning company and will always endeavour to fly you on your preferred date, however safety for all passengers is our number one priority.
My fiance and I would like to express our biggest thanks to the entire Global Ballooning Australia team for the unforgettable experience to mark the beginning of our future life together.
Massive thanks to our fantastic pilot Tim and Belinda for the wonderful balloon flight over the stunning Yarra valley. They were professional, warm and friendly which made the entire flight even more enjoyable.
Massive thanks to Kate and Erin as well. They were extremely helpful and prompt in assisting me on my proposal plan. I have to commend Kate as she was quick to follow up to reschedule our proposal flight when she found out that it was cancelled due to poor weather.
So once again, I would like to thank each and everyone at Global Ballooning Australia for helping me to turn my proposal plan into reality! It is definitely an 'once in a lifetime' experience!"

"Hi Erin and the Global Ballooning Australia team,
I just want to send my great thankfulness to you and the team to give me that fantastic opportunity to fly with you guys. It was absolutely one of the most exciting and memorable experiences for me. Pilot Nick did an awesome job on the day with all his passion and kindness. I love every bit of the trip from the meeting to the landing part. Everything just happened to be perfect! It is definitely a highly recommended tour"

"Now that we have had a chance to catch our breath, I would like to say a MASSIVE thank you for all your assistance and support in helping make my proposal plans become reality.
The first time I came into the office to enquire about my idea of proposing in one of your balloons over Melbourne, Kate & Erin were simply fantastic in assisting me to plan out the entire morning to ensure it went smoothly. My never ending stream of questions were always answered and left me feeling completely confident that the morning would run smoothly.
Our amazing pilot Brian made flying look easy despite the weather challenges. As planned Brian and the ground crew were ready to disguise our photographer Maria with a Global Ballooning Australia hat to ensure Erin (fiancé) had no idea what was planned. After giving Brian the secret thumbs up he positioned the basket with the city as the backdrop for the photographer and I was able to put my plan into action. Erin was absolutely blown away and with a mixture of shock and happiness while wiping away tears, she said yes making me the happiest man in the air that morning.
Once again, I can't say thank you enough for all the help and assistance everyone at Global Ballooning Australia gave me. You helped make my dream of asking my best friend to marry become true"
