The race is on for the best Schoolies rooms for 2018!

Students have marked their diaries for Monday May 15 when Schoolies 2018 officially opens for bookings!

While the iconic rite of passage may be more than 18 months away for the current  crop of Year 11 students, that will do nothing to dampen the enthusiasm for the hordes of Schoolies looking to lock away the best rooms closest to the party action.

Matt Lloyd, CEO of the event’s original and number one operator, said the modern Schoolie was more organised than ever.

“We expect 2018 bookings to open with a rush. In our 29 plus years as the market leader in booking Schoolies holidays, we have noticed that kids are more primed than ever to lock in their end of year holidays sooner rather than later.

“With the event growing in popularity each year, with more sophisticated entertainment and events being added to the mix, Schoolies have become aware that for the best rooms, close to the beach and the main entertainment activities they need to get in early to avoid disappointment,’’ Mr Lloyd said.

“We are expecting a huge rush of year 11 students getting their 2018 Schoolies holidays locked in to get their resort of choice. All the best rooms, and even entire resorts, sold out in a matter of days last year,’’ he said.

“Schoolies see events such as the Schoolies Nation Beach Festival growing in popularity each year and are speculating on just how big 2018 will be,’’ he said.

Mr Lloyd, said with a $100 deposit being all that was required to secure bookings for most Schoolies destinations, the best rooms in the best locations were always snapped up fast.

The traditional home of Schoolies, Surfers Paradise, will once again be in enormous demand while other destinations including Airlie Beach, Lorne, Byron Bay, Bali and Fiji were also likely to fill quickly according to

All bookings include exclusive bonuses such as comprehensive security and properties, 24 hour helpline for parents and students, official photo ID, access to exclusive supervised parties and more.

Meanwhile it’s still not too late to book for Schoolies 2017 with a range of quality resorts at great rates still available.
