Their concept is genius. Travellarks is saying no to booking fees on their proudly Australian, regional accommodation booking platform.
They also list only special places to stay with amazing hosts who go the extra mile and many of their property owners pass on their savings by offering exclusive Travellarks extra welcome gifts for guests.
Yes, they’ve eliminated all booking fees, all commission fees and all service fees, and challenge the big guns of booking accommodation platforms across Australia. This means the $$ stay Down Under. And their roaring success has seen Travellarks spread across NSW to Queensland, Victoria and now South Australia.
“Booking fees for guests is as high as 39% that goes straight off shore with the big global travel companies and Australian owners lose thousands of dollars in profits with bookings, every day. And those dollars add up. Travellarks property owners keep all their profits and their guests don’t pay extra service fees either.”
It’s a win, win.
This exciting, new booking platform saying no to booking fees, all began when the Travellarks girls were well travelled teachers and nurses who, after the bushfires, Covid and the floods, went outside their comfort zone, pupils and patients for a business idea. They wanted to give back and make a positive economic and social impact for Australians in local, regional and remote communities following a series of catastrophic events. So, Travellarks was born.
In gratitude, many property owners free from booking fees, give complimentary gifts exclusive to Travellarks accommodation, such as grazing platters, bottles of bubbly, craft beer, hand-made organic soaps, chocolate truffles and so on, all from local artisans or hand made themselves. The guest becomes part of a regional collaboration and the local community is often involved.
“Our aim is to bring people and places together that leave you feeling the generous spirit of our Nation; experiences that leave their indelible mark of a WOW stay.
