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 you can arrange a ceremony to be held at Balgownie Estate 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.
