Book With Confidence : Covid-19 : Explanation
As we enter our 5th Lockdown in Victoria, I thought it would be helpful for all members and guests to understand how the club booking policy applies where there is a Covid-19 impact.
A full credit will be granted wherever a member is unable to travel to the lodge as at the date of the booking commencing. In the case of interstate bookings this period is extended to 24 hours before the booking commences. A prior expectation of a restriction being applied, or not being removed, is not a relevant reason for a full credit. Any cancellations of a booking in anticipation of a shutdown or for any other reason will result in the normal cancelation policy .
Put simply your accommodation is live unless the government mandates a lock down or in some other way prevents you from taking up your accommodation as at the commencement date of the booking.
Please ensure your submit your Covid Declaration before arriving at the lodge
As this lock down has highlighted, we need to be vigilant against the spread of COVID. The safety of all guests, the lodge managers and the wider Hotham community is of the utmost importance to the Anton committee. Hence it is vital that the COVID declaration sent to members with the pending accommodation booking reminder is completed and signed before you arrive at the lodge. It is also available on this link: Anton Covid 19 Declaration Form
As an upside from all the negative news, the changed circumstances of some members bookings is likely to mean that there will be accommodation available during August which was previously full. This maybe an opportunity for members and their guests to enjoy peak skiing conditions in a year that is promising the best snow conditions for many years. Keep your eye on the Bookings availability on the website.
I appreciate all the members patience in this difficult time and thank you in for your ongoing support for the committee and your consideration of your fellow members and the lodge managers.
