Your participation in any provision of goods and or services offered by a provider is conditional upon your acceptance of the provider's terms and conditions as notified at the time of booking.
7.4. You agree and acknowledge that
- deals for goods or services advertised on an Australia-wide basis may not necessarily operate in remote areas;
- where providers offer services on the basis of 'sessions' or otherwise on time basis the advertised duration may be indicative and approximate;
- providers are under no obligation to give priority to you in respect of the booking or scheduling of services using a Sure Deal voucher and you may be required to take your turn alongside the provider's other customer(s). This may necessitate a waiting time in scheduling your booking and/or on the date of voucher redemption;
- where providers offer an experience based on an itinerary or schedule of events, the scheduling of or order for those events may vary from time to time;
- the providers of certain types of experiences may impose conditions such as minimum age or other restrictions regarding weight, health or other factors. It is your responsibility to obtain details of any restrictions that may apply from the provider prior to confirming any booking and confirm that you are able to comply;
- photographs appearing on our website to illustrate details of offers of providers are generally those made available to us by providers. They are intended to be indicative only of the services, venues and locations at which services are offered by providers. For example, they may depict only one of various venues and locations at which the services are offered and given your geographic location this may not be the venue or location applicable to you;
- a representation on the website that services will be available over a range of dates does not preclude you from being required to make a booking for the services to which the booking relates. Bookings may not be available on short notice;
- restaurant menus advertised on the website are indicative only and subject to change without notice; and
- where providers offer a course or series of sessions or treatments (such as beauty treatments and waxing appointments) you agree that these may need to be scheduled at intervals to be determined in consultation with the provider, in order to maximise the efficacy of the services provided or to minimise risks to health or wellbeing.
8.1. The promotion of goods or services on the website does not constitute an offer to sell or guarantee the availability of vouchers redeemable for these goods or services. It is an invitation to treat only. The availability of any goods or services promoted on the website may be subject to Sure Deal's receipt of a minimum number of orders for that deal having been received by us. Any pre-determined number of vouchers required to be purchased before the goods and services promoted on the website are available for purchase may be determined by third party suppliers / providers.

12.1. The services supplied by Sure Deal in exchange for your payment are the provision of vouchers subject to the terms and conditions of this agreement. Subject to the other terms and conditions of this agreement, any Sure Deal voucher you purchase shall be redeemable for the specified goods or services only from the provider and shall only be available for redemption during the period specified on our website.

13. Bookings and cancellations

- included an incorrect Deal term, or omitted a significant Deal term; or
- posted the Deal on our website in error.
15.3.2.

- more than 12 weeks for a Friday, Saturday or Sunday appointment; or

This does not apply for Travel Deals or scheduled events; these will be assessed on a case by case basis.
15.4.3. We, at our sole discretion, believe your situation warrants a Sure Deal Account Credit.
15.5. In addition to your rights under clauses 15.1-15.4, for Travel Deals you should review and agree to the terms and conditions of each Travel Deal as set out on the Deal page:
15.5.1. you accept that securing a booking for travel and/or accommodation is subject to availability and we may offer you a refund and/or a Sure Deal Account Credit in our absolute discretion;

15.9. We may verify the details of your refund request with the Provider, and by asking you to provide more information and proof.
15.10. Where we issue a refund, if possible it will be issued to the same payment method that you used to purchase the voucher but this is not possible 45 days after we received your payment and you will be issued with a Sure Deal Account Credit instead.

15.12. Where we conclude that a refund request is invalid, we may refuse the refund.
15.13. The refusal of a refund or Sure Deal Account Credit does not prevent you from seeking a refund directly from the Provider.
