The Voucher cannot be applied to the booking being price matched.

  1. Who can claim?
    The Travel Online Price Promise is only available to residents of Australia who are aged 18 years or older.

  2. How to Claim
    To make a Travel Online Price Promise claim you must email us and state in your email that you would like to make a Travel Online Price Promise claim and attach a copy of the written quote from a competitor.
    You must provide our Travel Consultants with all requested information relating to the Quote including, without limitation;
    • the written Quote inclusive of all fees, taxes and surcharges where applicable,
    • the name of the company from which the quote was obtained
    • if applicable, the address of the website on which the Quote was obtained
    • the name & address of the Hotel, the room type, any inclusions and the applicable dates of travel.

    Our Travel Consultants will then verify the Quote, assess it against the Rules of Comparison and determine whether or not your Travel Online Price Promise claim is a valid claim.

    Failure to provide our Travel Consultants with sufficient evidence or details of a valid Quote may, in our absolute discretion, result in invalidation of your claim. Evidence considered sufficient is at the discretion of the relevant Travel Consultant.

  3. Requirements for a valid Price Promise claim.
    For a Travel Online Price Promise claim to be valid the following requirements and/or conditions must be met:
    1. The claim must relate to a Hotel available for sale on Travel Online and available for Travel Online to book. Please be aware that hotels may at their discretion withhold available rooms from agencies.
    2. The Price Promise only applies to accommodation bookings over $500 inclusive of taxes and other charges.
    3. The Price Promise does not apply to bookings where the check in date is within 28 days of the Quote date.
    4. A claim can only be submitted before you book the hotel accommodation.
      1. In circumstances where you have already booked the Hotel on Travelonline.com, a Price Promise claim cannot be made.
        This is due to real time changes in Hotel and other supplier's pricing. Hotels and other suppliers regularly adjust pricing according to availability and Travel Online is not and cannot be held responsible for these adjustments.
    5. The Quote must be for exactly the same hotel, and the same itinerary dates and inclusions (if applicable) must apply.
    6. For the avoidance of doubt, this means:
      1. the Quote must be for the same dates, room type, bedding configuration and number of adults and children as for the applicable price displayed on Travelonline.com;
      2. the Quote must relate to a Hotel for which the inclusions and/or cancellation policy are equal to, or more favourable than, the equivalent item displayed on Travelonline.com. For the avoidance of doubt, an inclusion includes, without limitation, additional items such as meals, parking, free Internet access, gift upon arrival and airport transfers.
    7. the Quote must be inclusive of all fees, taxes and surcharges and any other fee imposed by the relevant website in connection with the booking.
    8. the Quote must be displayed and payable in Australian dollars (without the use of a currency converter provided on the website);
    9. the Quote must relate to the same product purchased stand-alone through the other website (i.e., not part of a hotel + air travel package).
    10. the Travel Online Price Promise is not available in relation to bookings on websites where any of the details of the accommodation are unknown until after purchase (including, without limitation, a mystery hotel or a secret hotel specials);
    11. the Hotel that is the subject of the Quote must be capable of being booked by the Travel Consultant through Travelonline.com at the time of your call and is subject to availability on both Travelonline.com and the comparison website;
    12. the Quote must result from a search or a promotion that is both advertised and available to the general public on the relevant website. For example, this does not include a Quote which is obtained through, without limitation, a membership program website, corporate discounts or rates, group, charter, rewards program, incentive, meeting, convention, consolidator or interline prices; prices obtained via auction or similar process; or prices available only by using a voucher or other promotion not offered to the general public;
    13. you must be capable of satisfying all other terms and conditions or requirements associated with the Quote including, without limitation, residency, regional and age-related requirements;
    14. the Quote must be capable of being viewed and recreated by our Travel Consultant at the time of your call conducting his/her own search of the relevant website. For the avoidance of doubt, this means that it must not be necessary for our Travel Consultant to email or otherwise contact the relevant provider of the website to obtain the Quote. Travel Online will not accept screenshots or other purported evidence of a Quote that cannot be independently confirmed by the Travel Consultant. Nor will Travel Online verify any request that it believes, in its sole discretion, is the result of a printing, uploading or other error or is made fraudulently or in bad faith.

    Travel Online reserves the right in its sole discretion to modify or discontinue the Travel Online Price Promise or to restrict its availability to any person, at any time and without prior notice or liability to you. The Terms and Conditions in effect at the time of your claim will determine your eligibility under the Travel Online Price Promise.
