FUEL SURCHARGE APPLICABLE FOR TRAVEL FROM 06 JUNE 2022
2nd of June 2022
Further to our advisory issued on the 3rd of May 2022 and the subsequent implementation of a fuel surcharge, this advisory is issued to update customers as well as our trade and resort partners on further changes to take effect for travel as of Monday, the 6th of June 2022.
In the past 48 hours, the price of diesel fuel in Fiji has increased by another 6% and is now at record levels some 63% ahead of prices as of June 2021 when our current rates were set and released to the market.
With the price of fuel at record levels, and expected to remain so for the immediate future, South Sea Cruises has made the decision to further increase our fuel surcharge which was implemented on the 1st of May 2022.
Customers travelling aboard the following South Sea Cruises services and products will be subject to the following fuel surcharges from Monday, 6th of June 2022 either at our Port Denarau check-in counter or upon boarding one of our vessels if a customer is only travelling on an inbound sector with us.
Customers travelling with us from Port Denarau will be asked to pay their applicable fuel surcharge for all future sectors booked whilst at check-in.
In implementing the amended fuel surcharge, we’d like to thank our trade and resort partners, along with our customers for their understanding of our need to recover a percentage of these increased fuel costs. We also ask that our Terms & Conditions are noted as follows “South Sea Cruises reserves the right to alter prices, apply a fuel surcharge, cancel departures, arrange alternative transport, and vary itineraries and services if necessary.”
Lastly, South Sea Cruises are committed to reviewing the fuel surcharge monthly, and we will only continue to implement the fuel surcharge as the price of fuel in Fiji justifies us in doing so. For those that aren’t aware, the price of fuel in Fiji is set by the Fijian Competition & Consumer Commission on the 1st day of each month and is based on a range of factors including the price of oil globally.
Need to book transfers for your Yasawa Island holiday? if you already have your accommodation sorted, your can book your transfers to and from Port Denarau on our high-speed catamaran, the Yasawa Flyer. If you have booked multiple hotels then our Bula Pass would be the best option for your transfers - please see here for more info & pricing
If you only need return transfers to one resort then you can book individual transfer sectors through our sister company South Sea Cruises.
How it works
The Yasawa Flyer which is one of our sister company South Sea Cruises' fleet of high-speed catamarans departs Port Denarau at 8.45 am to island-hop out through the Mamanuca Islands to their majestic neighbours, the Yasawa Islands. The Yasawa Flyer stops off along the way in the most scenic channels and bays, picking up and dropping off travellers at tropical island resorts with tenders (small motorised boats) motoring out to meet the Yasawa Flyer to transfer guests to/from the resorts! The northernmost stop is the famous Blue Lagoon, and from there, we head south again, arriving back at Port Denarau at 6.00 pm.
Included in the price are pre-booked complimentary coach transfers from most Nadi, Wailoaloa, and Denarau hotels to/from Port Denarau.
