Receive credit: discretionary
With regard to cancellations made within ten days of reservation – we may use our discretion to allow a guest to move their booking to another date, without penalty. However, the conditions pertaining to the original reservation remain should you cancel the amended reservation.
At some times of year our minimum booking is two nights and over the Christmas holiday period our minimum booking period is three nights. Some of our package deals and discounts may also have a minimum stay requirement.
All accommodation and pre-ordered extras must be paid fully paid for at the time of reservation by provision of EFT or credit card. (see our cancellation rules).
A Booking confirmation must be obtained . If a booking confirmation email is not received, the booking is not confirmed. So please check your email junk mail folders.
It is the responsibility of guests to review the booking confirmation email and advise Tin Dragon Trail Cottages if there are any errors or misunderstandings.
Credit card payment
By providing credit card details, guests warrant they have the authority to use the credit card and they authorise Tin Dragon Trail Cottages (Alpine Group PL) to charge the cost of their booking(s) and pre-ordered extras to that credit card.
EFT Payment: Confirmation

If a valid bank receipt is not received by email within four hours of a reservation, the reservation may be cancelled. After three days, if funds are not received, the reservation will be cancelled.
To avoid confusion, the registrant should reference their name, reservation number and name of the cottage they are booking.
