Terms & Condition for Complimentary Vacation Voucher Prize:


The voucher entitles you to complimentary hotel or resort accommodation in any one of a number of Australian destinations, or when international flights resume: Bali, Phuket, Koh Samui, Fiji or Vanuatu.

The user is required to pay the nightly fees and taxes per room for that destination, which are $29.95/night. The fees and taxes are a hospitality industry standard and entail, but are not limited to, federal services tax based on the full rack rate of the accommodation, local tourism and bed taxes, travel agency fees, local or municipal taxes, etc.

Travel can be completed within 18 months after activation. Travel to and from your chosen hotel or resort is not included.

If you have more than one vacation incentive, the others cannot be used back-to-back in the same or different destinations.

There must be at least 1 year gap between each vacation booked through RedeemVacations.com by any person or family.

The destinations may alter from time to time, due to hotel ownership or management changes – or any of numerous other reasons.

GROUP travel is NOT allowed – only one incentive per household and resort/hotel is allowed.

Reedeemvacations.com will only honour one incentive per family and friends per 12 months – travelling on the same arrival and departure dates.

Only 1 party can use the complimentary vacation incentive for the same travel dates.

This digital incentive will be considered void if bartered or purchased by the recipient.

The incentive is valid for a reservation request offering Luxurious Resort/Hotel Accommodations in your choice of destinations provided by RedeemVacations.com.

At least one occupant of the room must be at least 21 years of age.

Your cost to redeem this incentive and book the reservation is essentially Redeem Vacation’s recovery fees for payment to reservation, engines, travel agency fees, housekeeping fees and other incidental expenses.

The main reservation holder must also have a Major Credit or a Bank Debit Card with a Visa or Mastercard logo, plus a valid government-issued ID to check-in.

The recipient of this incentive will receive luxury hotel accommodation room rate free of charge, which retail is valued at up to AUD $350 per night. However, the recipient is responsible for all other expenses, including but not limited to: airfare, transfers, food and beverages, gratuities, resort fees if applicable and any other personal or miscellaneous expenses.

If applicable, the resort fees will be disclosed when choosing a hotel and preferred travel dates. (Resort fees cover items like WiFi Internet Access, Local Calls, & Resort amenities.)

All reservations require a minimum of 30 days advance notice to book. Reservations are based on availability.

Once travel dates are confirmed, no changes will be allowed. Cancellations after dates are confirmed will result in forfeiture of the activation fees.

The user must reside at least 100 miles or 160 kilometres away from the destination resort of choice.

This incentive has no cash surrender value, void if discontinued and where prohibited by law. The terms of this offer are subject to change without notice.

RedeemVacations.com reserves the right to offer other hotels with equal or similar value with incentive holder approval if required due to availability.

Do not rely upon representations other than what is noted here.

Booking & Service fees apply with this accommodation offer — AUD $33 per night.

The user of the Vacation Accommodation Voucher agrees that they have decided to experience this holiday of their own volition.

The user’s or users’ enjoyment, safety and satisfaction is entirely their responsibility.

Users are responsible and accountable for their decisions and actions and by the hotel reservation, users agree not to attempt to hold The Institute Of Wow or Highlands Veterinary Hospital (Petshop.com.au Pty Ltd) liable for their decisions, actions or satisfaction levels, at any time, under any circumstance.

Redeem Vacations and its Travel Incentive Partner reserves the right to change, modify or amend any of these terms and conditions without prior notice.

The business providing the Vacation Accommodation Vouchers has a 18 month validity period of their vouchers, from the date the vouchers were issued by Redeem Vacation’s Travel Incentive Partner.

Due to the increased demand for hotel rooms as the world comes out of the COVID 19 restrictions, an additional “3 Night Holiday” can be used (which the holder of the voucher can use next year).

This effectively means that the holder of the voucher is now entitled to 6 nights hotel accommodation rather than 4 nights.

The holder of the voucher will receive an extra “4 days/3 nights” Vacation Accommodation voucher immediately upon “activating” the current voucher (the second voucher will be emailed to the user immediately).

We hope that you can understand the need to adjust your holiday to 4 Days/3 Nights – because as the world comes out of the COVID restrictions, traveling and taking holidays has become very popular.

Hotels are going through a “boom-period” and therefore many simply do not have 4 consecutive nights of rooms available. So, a second complimentary 3 nights holiday means the holder of the voucher can enjoy 6 nights complimentary accommodation total instead of 4.

The holder of the voucher is entitled to take the 2nd holiday within a year after the first one or can give it to someone else as a gift.
