StandbyRates.com.au is one of the online accommodation industry pioneers! We have been operating since 2002, have more than 2500 properties listing on our website and are considered one of the major players in the industry.
Booking online saves you up to 70% off Hotel Rack Rates and is normally much cheaper than calling the hotel direct – Why? Most hotels & motels operate at a 70% occupancy rate, which means there are still 30% of rooms that don’t get filled. So rather than have the rooms stand empty, the hotel will put the rooms up on Standby Rates at a heavily discounted rate to increase occupancy.
One title Standby Rates holds is “The cheapest in online accommodation by up to 7.5%” – this is because we give all of our members an instant cash discount on each booking made – up to 7.5% in fact.
This is just one of the things that makes us stand out from our competitors.
Some of the other features include:
Make an Offer – this allows you to negotiate the advertised accommodation room rate for to see if you can reduce it to a rate you can afford. This feature is exclusive to StandbyRates and was launched by us in March 2007.
Quote Requests: If you want ot make a booking for accommodation for a date beyond the next 28 days, then you can submit a request to the hotel for the date and still get your membership discount on top of the quoted rate.
Part Payment: When you book online with us, you only need to pay a 10% deposit, and the balance is payable directly to the hotel on arrival. This means you don’t tie up your credit card funds and have the flexibility to pay for the accommodation how you want when you get there.
So if you are going on a holiday, travelling for work, or need temporary accommodation for some other reason, don’t go past www.standbyrates.com.au for the most competitive rates and the best service!
