WHAT WE DON'T OFFER
Max 5 hikers per booking
No Accommodation - No Transfer
No Stove Fuel - No Transfer
We don't offer our services to groups of more than 5 hikers. If you make an enquiry regarding a trek for 6 or more people, we will ignore it.
We have a 'No Stove Fuel No Transfer Policy'. There is an official NT Parks 'No Open Fires' law on the Larapinta Trail. This means stove fuel only!
If you cannot show us your receipt from your stove fuel purchase before the start day of your trek, you will void your booking which means 100% loss of your booking fee and being stranded last minute on the day of your transfer. If you don't intend on taking any stove fuel for your trek please consider another transfer provider.
There are no exceptions to this policy.
We have a 'No Accommodation No Transfer' Policy.' You need to have official accommodation in town before and after your trek if you would like to use our services. We do not service caravan parks, private residential homes, pub accommodation and AirBNBs. (Unless you are a local Alice Springs resident)
No Airport Pickups
We Don't Pick Up Hitchikers
No Booking - No Pick Up
We do not offer any transfers to or from the airport. There are taxi's and bus services that ferry people to and from the airport.
Hitchhiking in the NT is illegal.
Don't get offended when we drive past ignoring you if you're thumbing it (unless of course, it is a medical or serious emergency, in which case we will assist any way we can).
We only provide transfer services to people who have a booking. We do not pick up people if they haven't gone through our booking process. If you don't have an LTTS Booking Code, we can't take you (unless it is a medical or serious emergency).
