Frequently Asked Questions
If you find yourself still asking questions after reading this, we are happy to answer any questions
DOES Tent Events SET EVERYTHING UP?
Yes! We provide all glamping gear hire and the labour!
We arrive before you to pitch and style your bell tent on your chosen campsite. Once your unique glamping experience is over we return to pack it all down. Our rates include the hire and our labour…. we take care of all the work so you don’t have to lift a finger.
THERE’S MORE THAN TWO PEOPLE IN OUR GROUP. CAN WE BRING OUR OWN BEDDING AND MATTRESSES TO AVOID THE ‘EXTRA PERSON’ CHARGE?
I’m afraid not! The number of people booked in your glamping experience must match the number of people booked with the campground so all campers must be paid for.
The extra person charge is great value! It includes a single mattress, pillows, bedding, linen, extra chair.
CAN I BOOK OVER A LONG WEEKEND?
Yes, of course! We have a minimum booking of 3 nights over long weekends (when the public holiday falls on a Friday or Monday).
