Star Ratings Australia Announces Closure

February 28, 2017 Business News No Comments Email Email

Star Ratings Australia has announced it will cease to operate as of 30 June, 2017.

The scheme, which is owned by the Australian Motoring Clubs, including NRMA, RACV, RACQ, RAA, RAC, RACT and AANT, has proudly been in operation since the 1950s and holds a long and distinguished history as Australia’s only independent, accredited accommodation scheme.

Michael Reed, CEO of the Australian Motoring Services said, “The Australian Auto Clubs are proud to have provided its members with a valuable and respected scheme that has enabled them to book their holiday or business accommodation with confidence.”

“At the height of Star Ratings Australia’s success there were 15,000 Star Rated properties across Australia. Being star rated meant that consumers would always know what to expect from the accommodation they booked. We were always true to our message – the accommodation you expect should be the accommodation you get.”

Mr Reed explained, “In a digital world, where consumers can provide online reviews, and with more accommodation providers choosing to self-rate, the Star Ratings scheme has found its independent review model increasingly unsustainable.”
