PRODUCT SUBSTITUTION

i. We may substitute a general occasion, licensed or unprinted 18” foil or 22” bubble balloon with a different design. The sentiment and/or character will not be substituted.
ii. If a super shape foil, air-walker or sing-a-tune balloon is unavailable we will contact you to discuss alternatives. If we are un-able to contact you the Balloons Online partner responsible for your order will use their best judgement to substitute the required balloon with the closest alternative. No refunds will be offered in this situation.
iii. We may substitute goodies such as wine, teddy bears and chocolates with a product of equal or greater value.

2. Latex balloon colour themes and printed sentiments will not be substituted.

3. Foil ‘Megaloon’ super shape number balloons are available in silver, gold, blue, red and purple. Unless specifically requested during the check out process any one, or combination, of these colours may be provided.

4. The vintage, finish and brand of all goodies may vary from that pictured. However all products supplied will be of equal or greater value and quality. 

CANCELLATION

All cancellations must be made by 3pm on the day prior to delivery. Cancellations must be made by phone. Please call the Balloons Online partner responsible for your order to cancel your order. (details provided in your order confirmation email)

FLOAT TIMES

1. Foil Balloons Balloons Online guarantees our helium inflated foil balloons will remain full and taught for 3 days in balloon friendly environments. They will then continue to float for another week, sometimes longer. Please be aware cold air-conditioned air may cause foil balloons to shrivel, but they will return to a normal state when exposed to warmer air.

2. Hi-Floated Latex Balloons Balloons Online treats all latex balloons with Ultra Hi-Float solution, a non-toxic liquid plastic which extends the balloons float time. When kept indoors, out of direct sunlight Balloons Online guarantees our hi-floated latex balloons will float for 3-5 days.

NB Float times may be reduced by humidity, changes in environment and weather including elevations significantly above sea level, exposure to direct sunlight and cold air.

QUALITY and CARE

Balloons Online and our partners take great care when preparing all orders and pride ourselves on supply of high quality products and customer service. Every gift leaves the store in perfect condition. As such:

1. Balloons Online take no responsibility for your balloon order after it has been safely delivered. 

2. Balloons Online will not refund, replace or exchange items that have been damaged due to lack of care or surrounding conditions after delivery.

3. In the very rare case of balloons/goodies being damaged in transit Balloons Online will replace the damaged product at our earliest opportunity.

4. Balloons Online can not control environmental factors, including heat, during time in transit (up to 4 hours on average). This can have a detrimental effect on balloons, wine and chocolates and all gifts are sent at the risk of customer. We recommend you check the temperature forecast for the date of delivery, as temperatures in Australia can surpass 40oC (104oF) during summer.

YOUR RESPONSIBILITY

Please take care when selecting the date of delivery for your gift and when reviewing the products you have chosen. Balloons Online takes no responsibility for incorrect product or delivery date selection. By ordering with Balloons Online you agree to all the above terms and conditions.


If you have any questions during the order process please do not hesitate to call us on 1300 655 058 or email directly to enquire@balloons.com.au.
