Thank you for visiting the TRUFFLE MELBOURNE Website (" Website" ) and welcome to our Policies and Terms and Conditions page.
Hunts Refund and Cancellation Policies:
Refund policy: If you’re unable to attend for a genuine medical reason, you may either:
Take an open dated hunt at your chosen venue in the 2021 season, OR receive fresh truffle to the value of the hunt fee you’ve paid - this truffle is valued at $2.50/gram and will be supplied after your chosen hunt date.
If you want a refund by EFT, we will deduct an administration charge of $15 and pay you the balance – this reflects the marketing and admin costs which we’re already incurring.
Cancellation policy: A full refund will be provided if events are cancelled by the hunt venue because of illness or another reason.
Our Social Media Policy Event Photography policies are also outlined below.
