Instalments scheme a first for WA

RAC's pre-payment system makes for easier holidays

Have your say

MORE caravan and tourist parks are now offering guests the opportunity to pay for their holidays in instalments.

RAC Parks and Resorts is the latest organisation to launch a pre-payment scheme, making it easier to budget for a family holiday.

Executive general manager (Brand & Tourism) Tony Pickworth said the scheme was a first for Western Australia and was now available at its parks in Exmouth, Monkey Mia, Busselton, Coral Bay and Cervantes.

"At no extra charge, guests will now have the option of making pre-payments weekly, fortnightly or monthly for bookings starting at $200," he said.

"We are committed to making holidays more affordable to our members and the WA community, regardless of whether they choose to camp at an unpowered site, stay in their caravan or book a stay in a self-contained villa."

Mr Pickworth said that helping members to see and enjoy WA was a key priority for RAC, and was part of its continued  commitment to invest in the state's tourism.

"RAC has been part of the great WA road trip for more than 100 years, and we want to preserve it as a high-quality and accessible option for future generations," he said.

"Our plan is to provide a range of affordable, reliable quality accommodation options for our members to encourage more Western Australians to holiday at home.

"This new lay-by system allows us to offer affordable and accessible holiday accommodation with an easy way to pay in instalments ahead of schedule so the cost of family holidays can be budgeted more easily."

RAC's holiday parks include Exmouth Cape Holiday Park, Monkey Mia Dolphin Resort, Busselton Holiday Park, Ningaloo Reef Resort and Cervantes Holiday Park.

NRMA pioneered the idea in Australia when it recently offered a pre-payment scheme for 20 of its holiday parks.
