Get a complimentary holiday to a destination of your choice
To enjoy this complimentary accommodation, you must use our service and spend over $3000. Offer only valid once per customer.
Please Note: You may be required to pay the nightly “booking & service fees” per room, which is AUD$44.55 per night. For example, if you were to stay at a Gold Coast hotel for 3 nights & the nightly “booking & service fees” were $44.55, you’d pay $44.55 × 3 nights = AUD$133.65. Keep in mind that the rack rate for many of the hotels is likely to be around $200 to $350 per night, depending upon the season – so 3 nights might normally be valued at $600 to $1,050.
The reason we can offer this complimentary accommodation is because for much of the year, the participating hotels & resorts have around a 30% vacancy-rate. This means we are offering rooms that have gone unsold, so popular times during the year such as Christmas, Easter & school holidays won’t have much (if any) vacancy.
The hotels are essentially foregoing much of their normal room-rate to participate in this program, in the hope that “non-paying” guests will consume food & beverages at the property……… therefore providing the hotels with “some” revenue. And of course they hope that if you have a great time during your “complimentary stay”, you will likely stay with them again in the future at full rate.
Here’s what you need to do next
If your eligible to receive one of our holidays you’ll receive an email asking what destination you’d want to go to. After responding to this email you’ll then receive another email from Redeem Vacations with details on how to redeem your complimentary holiday to your chosen destination.
Note: after receiving the Redeem Vacations email you have 7 days to activate your holiday and 18 months to use it once active. Travel to and from your chosen destination is not included in this offer. There must be at least a 12 month gap between each vacation booked through RedeemVacations.com by any person or family.
Terms & Conditions
1. DESTINATIONS MAY CHANGE
The destinations may alter from time to time, due to hotel ownership or management changes – or any of numerous other reasons. For example, if a hotel changes management & the new “managers” choose not to be our program, this is something we have no control over. So please understand that the destinations & hotels shown on our webpages & advertising are “samples” & are subject to change.
2. GROUP TRAVEL NOT ALLOWED
GROUP travel is NOT allowed – only one incentive per household and resort/hotel is allowed. Reedeemvacations.com will only honor one incentive per family and friends per 12 months – traveling on the same arrival and departure dates. Only 1 party can use the complimentary vacation incentive for the same travel dates.
3. CERTIFICATE VOID IF PURCHASED
This digital incentive will be considered void if bartered or purchased by the recipient. The incentive is valid for a reservation request offering Luxurious Resort/Hotel Accommodations in your choice of destinations provided by RedeemVacations.com. Most rooms are for 2 to 4 occupants based on room type and availability and at least one occupant must be at least 21 years of age. So in most hotels, you can enjoy “a family vacation.” Nonetheless, we cannot guarantee that ALL hotels will cater for children. “Some” hotels choose not to, its a case of selecting hotels or resorts that suit your circumstances.
Your cost to redeem this incentive and book the reservation is essentially Redeem Vacation’s recovery fees for payment to reservation, engines, travel agency fees, housekeeping fees and other incidental expenses. The main reservation holder must also have a Major Credit or a Bank Debit Card with a Visa or Mastercard logo, plus a valid government-issued ID to check-in.
4. 30 DAYS ADVANCE BOOKING & ONE OR TWO HOTELS PER DESTINATION
All reservations require a minimum of 30 days advance notice to book. Reservations are based on availability and understandably rooms are less likely to be available at peak vacation periods like Easter, Christmas & School Holidays.
Note: When booking accommodation online, one or two hotels in each destination will feature for much of the year.
Our automated system has “hotels on an availability rotation”, hence why the actual hotels with availability are only identified when DATES are entered into the booking process. Check-in is available 7 days a week. Most resorts won’t have availabilities during the busy Christmas & school holiday periods – in other words, they don’t have an empty rooms to give away!
In the case of the 3 Night Holidays, it’s recommended that people choose nights between Sunday & Thursday – if one wants to include a “peak night” like Friday & Saturday, for most hotels, there’s a modest surcharge approx. AUD$55 per night. There may be a few hotels that have a higher “Friday/Saturday surcharge” due to their location being in high-demand, so please check. Why? Because Fridays & Saturdays are busy days & therefore the resorts don’t have many empty rooms available.
5. FEES & TAXES NON-REFUNDABLE
This incentive activation is FINAL & NON-REFUNDABLE. The end user will have 18 months to travel and can choose from available destinations to find travel dates and participating resort/hotel options. Once accommodation dates have been confirmed, no changes of dates are allowed. Also, after the accommodation dates have been confirmed, any cancellation of one’s accommodation will result in forfeiture of the activation fees (ie: booking fees).
(The inventory used for these rooms are not as flexible as booking at regular retail rack rates, so once confirmed, changes will not be allowed and cancellations or no-shows will result in forfeiture of fees paid)
Why are fees & taxes payable before selecting a hotel?
Redeem Vacations, needs to ensure that sufficient hotel rooms are available across multiple locations & dates. To do so, it’s important to have a rolling indication of how many bookings there might be within the next 12-18 months for specific locations. That way, Redeem Vacations can cater for any particular demand for a specific destination (ie: provide “more” hotels if needed). The only way to do this is to ensure the location is chosen at the point of “activation” (when the booking & service fees are paid). This helps Redeem Vacations to provide sufficient hotel room availability, whilst still giving the customer 18 months to book.
6. USER NEEDS TO RESIDE 160 KM AWAY
The user must reside at least 100 miles or 160 kilometers away from the destination resort of choice. Remember, the participating hotels are providing this extraordinary “accommodation deal” on the basis that they hope to get “a financial return” via guests buying food, beverages, room service, spa treatments & tours etc whilst at the property.
If “locals” were to avail themselves of the “free accommodation”, it’s likely they’d simply buy food & beverages locally (or bring them from home!). And almost certainly, such “locals” would NOT be investing in spa massages, cocktails by the pool or tours. Hence why the 160km condition is a commonsense one.
7. NO CASH SURRENDER VALUE
This incentive has no cash surrender value, void if discontinued and where prohibited by law. The terms of this offer are subject to change without notice. RedeemVacations.com reserves the right to offer other hotels with equal or similar value with incentive holder approval if required due to availability. Do not rely upon representations other than what is noted here.
8. ACTIVATE ONLINE
To redeem, simply activate the incentive online and then search online at RedeemVacations.com for the destination of choice and participating resort/hotels and travel dates.
9. BOOKING AND SERVICE FEE APPLY
Booking & Service fees apply with this accommodation offer. The booking fee will range from $28 to $59 a night depending on the hotel that is booked instead of a flat rate.
These fees are based on a few factors – examples include but are not limited to:
– Remuneration to a 3rd party booking engine
– Travel agency fees
– Housekeeping/room cleaning room fees
– Allowance for replacement of damaged or stolen room amenities.
Note: The “booking fees” are subject to change, due to booking engines like Expedia and Wotif periodically adjusting their fees for administering registrations. Understandably, the hotels have no control over the fees that third-party booking engines charge.
10. USER AGREES TO TERMS
The user of the Vacation Accommodation Voucher agrees that they have decided to experience this holiday of their own volition. Understandably, the user’s or users’ enjoyment, safety & satisfaction is entirely their responsibility. And the “reservation holder & family/guests” agree that The Institute Of Wow & the Business that provided the complimentary vacation will not be held responsible for any personal disappointment, losses or personal injury during their vacation stay.
Users are responsible and accountable for their decisions & actions and by the hotel reservation, users agree not to attempt to hold The Institute Of Wow or the participating business (that provided the complimentary vacation) liable for their decisions, actions or satisfaction levels, at any time, under any circumstance.
11. CONDITIONS SUBJECT TO CHANGE
Redeem Vacations & it’s Travel Incentive Partner reserves the right to change, modify or amend any of these terms & conditions without prior notice. Given the impact of COVID 19 on the travel industry & the unpredictable consequences to hotels, there may need to be common sense adjustments to the offer periodically. Businesses & users accept this as a fair & reasonable Ts & Cs inclusion – as the pandemic has meant that hotel & resort operators need to be nimble in this COVID environment.
