WeekendBreaks operates as a division of New Frontiers Tours PTY (LTD), and New Frontiers Tours is a wholly owned subsidiary of Bidvest. The portfolio includes both BushBreaks & More and WeekendBreaks and their respective websites; www.bushbreaks.co.za and www.weekendbreaks.co.za.


WeekendBreaks strives to offer our clients the best possible prices. The best available rate is shown on the website as a “From” price, however in most cases the best rate will have certain terms and conditions, or validity dates as specified by the property concerned to qualify for the special rates. Should you be able to change your dates of travel to the applicable validity dates, you can benefit from the special.  The rates for other dates of travel are also shown in the rates tab on the website to help you plan your trip, together with any other special rates that you may wish to take advantage of.

WeekendBreaks will do their utmost to honour prices quoted and published. However, where increases are as a result of currency fluctuations, airfare increases, hoteliers’ increases, taxes and other factors beyond WeekendBreak’s control do arise, surcharges may apply to cover such increases. It is essential that the client checks that there have been no changes in price, prior to making final payment.

Any prices quoted on by WeekendBreaks shall not be binding on it unless and until a final invoice is issued, on which payment must be made.
