Terms and Conditions for Party Tours and Transport for our 4th Sub-Contractor

Standards of behaviour

As the contact person for your group, you are the only person I am in communication with. So a major responsibility rests with you in the selection of your friends for this tour and their behaviour on and off the bus.  You must make everyone in your group aware by emailing a link to this page or printing it out for them. If you are unsure of any one of these conditions, you agreed to ask and receive clarification prior to booking.

At our Sub-Contractor’s Winery and Brewery Tours & Party buses, we really want you to enjoy your tour. We put a lot of effort into presentation, equipment and scheduling. If you have a great day out, then you will tell your friends. After you have been on a Partybus cruise jiving to your music LOUD amongst the strobe lights of an evening, you will already have ideas about what occasion to include the Partybus in next.

Unfortunately, all of this fun and frivolity can be too much for some. You know the story – it only takes one bad apple. Just one “friend of a friend” who can’t handle his/her alcohol. Hence BYO is limited to three (3) drinks per person per hour and can include white wine (still or sparkling), beer, cider or commercially available ready to drink pre-mix such as scotch & cola and vodka cruisers. Not permitted are red wine, liqueur or straight spirits.

Liquor licensing laws in South Australia are quite user friendly, but also carry heavy fines. A security bond is payable for every event. This bond is refunded at our absolute discretion after the event pending positive feedback from our driver/host and venue staff.

When inquiring or placing a booking with us you expressly agree to our below Terms & Conditions, agree to adhere to refrain from Unacceptable Behavior and agree to cover all and any Additional Costs.
