b) cover the cost of hotel accommodation for up to 3 nights; and
c) reimburse you for the reasonable and demonstrable costs which you incur by (as applicable):
i. taking a taxi or rideshare between the airport and your accommodation, and your accommodation and the relevant Dream Venture Masterclass session venue; or

6.2 Exclusions

The Minderoo travel support program:

a) does not include paying for travel insurance;

You must notify us of any dietary requirements at least 14 days before the relevant Dream Venture Masterclass session. We cannot guarantee that there will be no cross-contamination. Accordingly, while we will do our best to cater to your dietary requirements, we encourage those with life threatening allergies or food intolerances to bring their own food items.
