Deposit

A 100% deposit must be paid at time of booking to guarantee your hotel reservation. Your hotel booking is unable to be confirmed until the deposit payment is received.

Please Note: The balance of your hotel account for any additional nights booked/stayed (less the deposit paid to the Accommodation Managers) and all incidentals, will be payable to the hotel at the time of checkout.

All Rates include the 10% Goods and Services Tax (GST) and are quoted in Australian Dollars.

Checking Into Your Accommodation

Check-in and Check-out times

In general, check-in time is normally 1500 hours and check-out time is normally 1000 hours.  Whilst hotels will do everything possible to accommodate early arrivals, if you wish to be guaranteed immediate access to your room upon arriving before 1500 hours you will need to pre-book, and pay for the previous night.  Similarly, if you wish to guarantee a late checkout you will need to book for the next night. 

Please indicate this at the time of making your booking during the accommodation booking . Alternatively, if you have already made your accommodation booking you can request this additional night by advising the Accommodation Managers in writing via email at wdc2013@arinex.com.au

Hotel Check in Procedures

As per standard hotel policies and procedures attendees will be required to provide a credit card or full cash payment upon check in. This is to cover any incidental charges that may be incurred during your stay.

The hotel will place a hold on your credit card, until point of check out, an amount which covers a daily amount for incidental charges. Any monies still being held on your credit card by the hotel, once you have settled your account and checked out will be released.

If you will be settling your accommodation account by cash you will be asked to leave a cash deposit to cover incidentals that may be incurred during your stay. Should you not utilise any incidentals during your stay the cash deposit, for incidentals only, will be refunded to you by the hotel upon check-out.

Please note the daily incidental charge may vary across the listed hotels.

Late Arrivals

Please indicate on your accommodation booking form or notify the Accommodation Managers in writing if you will arrive at your hotel after 1800 hours.

Accommodation Cancellation Policy

  • Cancellations received up to 11 October 2013 will be refunded in full, minus an administration fee of AUD $75 dollars per room cancelled.
  • Cancellations received from 12 October 2013 until 31 October 2013 will be refunded in full, minus a one nights’ cancellation fee per room cancelled.
  • Cancellations received from 1 November 2013 onwards, cancellation fee equivalent to the entire booking period will be charged.
  • In the event of cancellation, any merchant fees paid are non-refundable.

All bookings are to be paid in full at time of reservation. Please note if you do not arrive at your designated hotel on the date you are booked to arrive, the hotel will retain the full accommodation rate for each night that you do not arrive to the hotel.
