Getaway Cash Travel Credits

Getaway Cash

Getaway Cash travel credits are our discount "currency". It is how you receive and track your discounts as a member.

When you join you receive up to $5,000 in Getaway Cash travel credits depending on the plan you choose. The amount of travel credits in your account represents the maximum amount of discounts you can receive as a member.

Getaway Cash (GCash) travel credits reduce the price of your Australian or overseas holiday from retail down to travel industry wholesale (or lower). It's like a discounted price only for-real and better.

Non-members, being everyone else who thinks they know better, pays normal retail.

Example travel package

Normal retail price: $3,900
Less Getaway Cash travel credits (retail margin): $720
Amount you pay (industry wholesale price): $3,280

Maximum GCash usage: Australian and international hotels and resorts as well as general travel: Up to 40% of the normal retail price. The average is around 25% of the price.

"Normal retail price" is either (a) a competing travel quote or (b) what we estimate you would pay for your customised travel plan through another travel company offering similar inclusions and services, or (c) the non-member price of a pre-packaged itinerary. The amount of Getaway Cash that can be used is entirely at our discretion.

Terms & Conditions

The following terms and conditions apply to the use of Getaway Cash discount travel credits (also called "GCash") and are subject to change without notice. By purchasing or agreeing to proceed with a travel or accommodation package, making a travel and/or accommodation enquiry or booking with Australian Escapes and/or engaging the services of Australian Escapes in any other way you agree to be bound by these terms and conditions and any reasonable amendments.

PURPOSE OF GCASH

The Getaway Cash (GCash) discount credits system is a method of obtaining and measuring the value of discounts offered by Australian Escapes. GCash credits are also referred to as "travel credits".

REDEMPTION

GCash credits may only be used for the purpose we describe in member information and cannot be redeemed for cash, goods or services except as we specify. You can use your GCash credits towards the following types of travel:

  • Domestic and international travel packages. Example packages are advertised on the website.
  • Customised international or domestic travel plans. Travel that includes flights and at least 3 nights' accommodation.
  • International cruise packages including cruise(s), flights and at least 3 nights' accommodation.
  • Accommodation-only bookings (Australia or international).
  • Selected domestic cruise-only bookings.

LIMITS

GCash may be used towards travel up to a limit set by us on a case-by-case basis according to the normal retail price of the package. Each time you make a booking we use GCash travel credits from your account towards your holiday. The amount used is based on the amount of retail margin in the package. Getaway Cash cannot be used to get a free holiday.

NORMAL RETAIL PRICE

"Normal retail price" is either (a) a competing travel quote or (b) the retail price we estimate that you would pay for your customised travel plan through another travel company offering the same level of service, or (c) the non-member price of a pre-packaged itinerary. The amount of Getaway Cash that can be used is entirely at our discretion.
