Gold Coast Accommodation Provider Scores Gold with Games Discount

July 12, 2017 Hotel Deals No Comments Email Email

ONE of the few Gold Coast accommodation providers to offer a discount during the 2018 Commonwealth Games period has been rewarded with a gold rush of bookings.

Surfers Paradise-based Holiday Holiday has been inundated by Games goers keen to secure an accommodation base for the massive 12-day event next April.

Holiday Holiday director Lee Lee Goh said more than half of the boutique luxury accommodation provider’s 100 self-contained apartments in Surfers had been snapped up since their Games availability went live on June 24.

Ms Goh said Holiday Holiday timed the release of all its apartments to coincide with the recent launch of Commonwealth Games event ticket sales.

“We offered a 10 per cent discount off our Games rate for those guests who booked before July 1, and that was received exceptionally well,” she said.

“The response has most definitely exceeded our expectations and we only have about 40 apartments left during that period.”

Ms Goh said most of the bookings had come from NSW-based visitors, with some from Victoria, South Australia and New Zealand.

“We’ve also received a large group booking of 10 apartments from an ACT Government department,” she said.

“Bookings are already particularly heavy for the week leading up to the athletics finals and the closing ceremony on April 15.”

Ms Goh said Games goers had embraced Holiday Holiday’s seven-night minimum booking requirement, with most set to check in for up to 10 nights and planning to experience more than the Commonwealth Games during their stay.

“We are really keen to promote the wider Gold Coast during this period and to be ambassadors for this region by encouraging our Games guests to explore the city’s natural and man-made attractions when they are not soaking up the action and excitement of GC2018,” she said.

“Holiday Holiday is looking forward to welcoming our Games visitors and ensuring they have everything they need during this once-in-a-lifetime experience on the Gold Coast.”

The apartment booking bonanza came as Queensland Tourism, Major Events and the Commonwealth Games Minister Kate Jones implored local accommodation providers to release all their rooms when ticket sales kicked off.
