Price of the tour and how it works

ZigZag’s Whitsundays Day Tour is different from the rest in the way of pricing. We base our model on Dynamic Pricing. This means we set flexible prices on our product based on current market demands. When setting our Dynamic Pricing we take into consideration, day of the week, weather forecast of the day, the number of days before the tour, how many seats are filled, high and low season, school holidays.

Pricing Example –  8 x $105 tickets sell out so price moves to $125 for 8 Tickets, then once $125 tickets sell out the price moves to $175. There is  absolutely no difference between ticket price and which seat you get on the boat. The earlier you book the cheaper the ticket . Your price will never change after you purchase the ticket.  Once the allocated number of tickets are sold the next price is available until the boat has reached its maximum occupancy.With all these factors taken into consideration ZigZag reserves the right to change seat pricing allocations to meet the demands or non-demand of our product.
