FLEET VEHICLES

It is prohibited for you to consume alcohol whilst on board our vehicle. A cleaning fee is charged if the vehicle requires any cleaning beyond that which is deemed normal.

From time to time our vehicle will need to go in for repairs or maintenance. During these inconvenient yet necessary short periods, we will not have our regular tour vehicle available for customers. A suitable replacement hire vehicle will be used for the necessary period of repair.

In Victoria it is illegal for anyone to supply alcohol to anyone under the age of 18 years of age on a licensed premise, including cellar doors or wineries. As such no minor under the age of 18 years of age will be allowed to consume/taste wine or any other alcohol at any stage of the tour, regardless of who supplies it. Wineries and Yarra Valley A2B adhere to strict guidelines of RSA (responsible service of alcohol) and reserve the right to terminate the tour if behaviour is deemed inappropriate.
