These are the terms and conditions, as may be amended from time to time, on which you are offered access to GoStandby and its search and booking services. If you do not accept these terms and conditions, you must refrain from using GoStandby and its online services. By accessing, browsing and using our website or any other application through whatever platform (collectively referred to as the Platform) and/or by completing a booking, you acknowledge and agree to have read, understood and agreed to the terms and conditions set out below (including the privacy statement).

GoStandby helps users to find and book experiences. However, we are not a travel or tour agency, and when you make a booking, you will be using the Platform to contract a good and/or service (herein, referred to as the Offers) directly with a third-party supplier (the Supplier). 

If you wish to contact GoStandby, please email: info@gostandby.co.nz.


Through the Platform, we provide an online  service through which a Supplier – in their professional conduct of business – can advertise, market, sell, promote and/or offer (as applicable) their Offers for order, purchase, reservation, rent or hire, and through which relevant visitors of the Platform can purchase.

By using or utilising the Supplier, you enter into a direct (legally binding) contractual relationship with the Supplier with which you make a reservation or purchase an Offer (as applicable). From the point at which your booking is confirmed, we act solely as an intermediary between you and the Supplier, transmitting the relevant details of your booking to the relevant Supplier and sending you a confirmation email for and on behalf of the Supplier.


Standby bookings are bookings that are pending confirmation by the Supplier, i.e. the seats are not reserved. At this point, the credit card is not charged, and no contract exists between you and the Supplier. You are free to cancel a Standby booking via the GoStandby website at any time before the Supplier accepts the booking.

When the Supplier accepts or confirms the Standby booking, the seat is reserved for the purchaser and the Standby booking converts to a confirmed booking. The credit card is charged, a contract is established between the you and Supplier and the booking cannot be cancelled via the GoStandby website.

BuyNow bookings are confirmed bookings where the seats are reserved for the purchaser. Your credit card is charged when the booking is made. BuyNow bookings cannot be cancelled via the GoStandby website.


By registering as a member, you certify that you are at least 18 years old, and can form a legally binding contract that is enforceable against you.

Cancellations by You

Standby bookings once confirmed by the  Supplier and BuyNow bookings cannot be cancelled by you and no refunds (full payment or deposit) will be issued, unless the cancellation is requested 72 hours before the activity commences. 
If the activity is cancelled 72 hours prior to activity commencing, you will receive a full refund. If a full payment has been made, please contact the Supplier for the refund or if a deposit has been paid, contact GoStandby for a refund of the deposit at info@gostandby.co.nz.

For deposit only bookings, you will be charged the balance if you don’t show up or are late to check-in.

Requests for changes to your confirmed bookings are to be made directly with the Supplier. However, the availability and costs of cancellations, changes depend on Supplier’s own terms and conditions and policies. Please note that the Supplier will have their own terms and conditions for use, access and consummation of the Offer.

All Change Requests shall be processed by the Supplier subject to the availability and agreement of the applicable Supplier. If the Supplier is unwilling or unable to accept such Change Request, then no refund will be offered
If you make a Booking using a promotion code, or if you accept a discount or special-offer price during the check-out process, you may invalidate your discount or special-offer price by making a Change Request after Booking.

No refunds are available once the Offer has commenced, or in respect of any Offer package, accommodation, meals or any other services that have started to be utilised.

It is your responsibility to be on time for the activity or to implement the booking including any recommended earlier arrival or appearance time stipulations set out by the Supplier.

Cancellations by the Supplier

If the Supplier cancels an Offer or no longer makes the Offer available to a Customer (e.g., weather cancelation) after you have made a confirmed booking but have not yet received the Offer, the Supplier will accommodate such Customer to the Customer’s reasonable satisfaction. 

If a Customer cannot be accommodated to the Customer’s reasonable satisfaction, the Supplier may process a refund or refunds for that Customer. 

The Customer will directly contact the Supplier. All cancellations for confirmed bookings must be made by the Customer directly with the Supplier within the applicable cancellation time period. 

If your booking is a deposit only booking, you need to contact us directly at info@gostandby.co.nz and we will refund your deposit. 

Other Modifications and Cancellations

Occasionally a Supplier may make a change to an Offer you purchase, including but not limited to the date, price, inclusions, coverage, age requirements, and/or any other features and/or requirements. As a result, the Supplier reserves the right to cancel, change or substitute any Offer that you have purchased, at any time, for any reason. If the change proposed by the Supplier is material (for example, a change in dates and/or a significant change to the itinerary), and you are dissatisfied with the alternative that is offered, you will be entitled to a full refund of the original purchase price or the deposit paid.

The Supplier may decide, to refund to you all or part of the amounts charged to you. You agree that we and the applicable Supplier shall have no liability for such cancellations or part refunds.


If a refund is issued, the refund amount will be in NZ dollars. This may result in a different amount being refunded if the currency of your credit card is different due to exchange rate fluctuations.


The price of each Offer will be quoted on a per-person for activities or a per room night basis for accommodation unless otherwise specified. Prices are in New Zealand Dollars (NZD) and include GST.

Prices are subject to change without notice, until a booking has been made.

Inclusions are determined by the Supplier. Prices do not include tips/gratuities; and any beverages or food that the Supplier has not specifically stated.
