Frequently Asked Questions
We're here to assist you in finding the information you need about our site.
Can I make a hotel booking via the Hotels Customer Helpline?
No. We only accept bookings for hotels via our website. Hotel bookings can be made online through our website. The Hotels Customer Helpline can provide assistance with any permitted changes or cancellation to your booking.
How do I know my online hotel booking is confirmed and what information is displayed in the email?
You will receive a Booking Confirmation email with your confirmed reservation details up to 24 hours after making the booking. If you have not received your confirmation, re-check your Spam or Junk folder. If you have not received your Booking Confirmation call 1300 738 206 between 7 am to 10 pm AEST, 7 days a week.
Once you have received the Booking Confirmation, you can see the property’s details in the email confirmation. The email will contain the Room Type you selected, any inclusions with the room selected and arrival instructions that you will need to read before arriving at the property.
Towards the bottom of the Booking Confirmation email you will see a Tax Invoice for the booking including information relating to cancelling the reservation, use of Qantas Points and use of Vouchers.
How can I request another copy of my hotel Booking Confirmation email?
To request a new copy of your Booking Confirmation contact us or call 1300 738 206. We will ask you to provide you’re booking reference number and the surname of the lead guest in the booking.
What if I book the hotel room for another person but do not stay as a guest?
The customer identified in the booking is referred to as the ‘lead guest’. It is essential that the lead guest be one of the people who utilise the booking as they will be asked to provide photo ID by the hotel at check-in. Importantly, the person making payment for the booking does not need to be the same as the lead guest. You may change who the lead guest is.
How can I locate the conditions associated with online hotel booking?
The conditions associated with your booking are displayed in your Booking Confirmation email. General Terms and Conditions of bookings are also available online at our "Booking terms and conditions" page.
How do I make a special request for my online hotel booking?
Special requests can be added in the "Request (Optional)" section during the booking process. These comments will be forwarded to the hotel with your booking. Please note, special requests cannot be guaranteed and will be at the discretion of the hotel and subject to availability on the day of check-in. Additional charges may be applied by the hotel at its discretion in some instances.
What booking documentation do I need to check-in to the hotel?
We recommend you take your Booking Confirmation email to assist at check-in. The lead guest will be required to present photo ID at check-in, such as a drivers license or passport.
What are your policies regarding under 18s?
You must be over 18 to make a booking on our website. Each hotel may have its own policy regarding guests under the age of 18. However, in general, all guests under the age of 18 should be accompanied by a parent/guardian or an individual over the age of 18. The hotel has the right to refuse any booking when the lead guest is unable to show sufficient photo ID if requested prior to or at check-in, or where a minor is not accompanied by a parent/guardian.
Can I make a hotel booking online if I live outside of Australia?
Yes you can, but please note though that all transactions will be processed in Australian Dollars (AUD)
