TRAVEL UPDATES + COVID 19
phase 4 verification certificate - October 2020
On 23 October 2020, the Tourism Council WA issued the Phase 4 Verification Certificate to Kingfisher Tours. This means that we are able to provide a tour service up to the number of persons normally permitted in a motor vehicle, boat or aircraft, whilst undertaking appropriate COVID-19 protocols and practices, including thorough cleaning, the provision of sanitiser products for guests and staff and social distancing measures.
Travel update - March 2020
The Western Australian McGowan govt have now announced border closure for WA.
Due to this and the unknown length of the impact of COVID-19 on Australia and therefore our travel industry, we understand many guests will need to put their tours into credit until such time as they can rebook.
At this stage we are NOT able to offer refunds to our guests, We will be putting all tours on hold and in credit, this means all tours will be put into credit and can be rebooked in a 3 year period. Please email us directly at with your tour date and name on the booking and we will issue your credit voucher to you. Please do not be alarmed if this takes up to 7 days, we are working through a number of bookings right now and we have not forgotten you.
This is entirely new territory for all of us, and as you can appreciate we are doing our best to find solutions in reaction to the news and health recommendations we are receiving every day. Due to working with other operators and businesses many of these bookings have already been paid out and until we have clarity as to return policies with other businesses we ask for your patience as we sort through what is a very difficult time for all of us.
