Booking Protect

Upon sign up you will be given the option of taking out Booking Protect. Without Booking Protect athletes will not be eligible for a refund if they are unable to take part in the event no matter what the circumstance. Booking Protect does not cover you if Challenge Wanaka Sports Trust is forced to cancel the event – see cancellation policy below.

What is Booking Protect?

Booking Protect is a third party refund protection. It is an optional service offered to customers at the time of booking. Purchasing refund protection through Booking Protect allows you to request a full refund in the unfortunate event that you cannot attend due to any of their predefined covered circumstances

This costs an additional 7.5% of your entry. Terms and Conditions can be found here, with further information can be found here.

Are you a coach?

If so then you could earn a free entry in to Challenge Wanaka!

Simply ask your athletes to to nominate you as their coach in the Challenge Wanaka entry system when registering to gain points towards your free entry. See details below:

  • Participants nominate a coach in the entry system (CWH/AB events)
  • Individual entries = 10 points
  • Team entries = 5 points
  • 100 points = 1 free individual entry
  • 125 points = 1 free team entry

At the closing date for registrations there will be an option to pay cash for the difference if required or obtain your free entry, no carryover of points to future years. Any questions email [email protected].

Withdrawals & Refunds

If Booking Protect is not taken out and an athlete needs to withdraw they will not be eligible for a refund.
