    How far in advance to book?

    Its a bit of a lottery at the moment, just this week I have reduced my stay at Rydges hotel at SYD airport by around 20%, 2 nights at Dunedin (NZ) by 17% and Tauranga (NZ) by 12%. My 6 day Hertz rental at CHC from $1790.00 down to $1130.00. Currently it is certainly a buyers market When doing...

    How far in advance to book?

    Book fully flexible rates now and then every 2 or 3 weeks go back in and do a dummy booking. If prices have dropped do a new booking and cancel the old. If prices rise then you are a winner. Usually prices will be pretty much set and wont change much from about a month out from your stay...

    Virgin Lounge at Brisbane International

    I actually thought it was quite good, however good or bad it wouldnt make me change my airline of travel. Only in the lounge for an hour or so and facing a 12 hour flight to LAX, that flight is where I will decide if I fly with Virgin again, not what the lounge was like. Only my thoughts

    Virgin Lounge at Brisbane International

    Ahh I remember the days when there was no such thing as lounges. The RIF RAF sat out with the DYKWIA and the area you were sitting in didnt influence who you flew with. And of course back then there was no such thing as "Gold members"

    IHG Hotels that recognise status

    I had bookings here last year until I did some research and read many posts and comments regarding the room sizes. Ended up cancelling and staying at the main IC. was not disappointed with a club room there

    The one minor item you miss if you forget to bring

    I use the rubber elastic bands which I use to keep my charging cables tidy in my suitcase when on the move, once in my room you can always find something on the curtain and something on the curtain track to keep the curtains a little bit taut thus reducing/eliminating the light coming in

    The one minor item you miss if you forget to bring

    I always have a bulldog clip so I can keep the curtains closed together in hotel rooms

    Also meant to say in the OP the dining room and bar at the Novotel is closed for renovations and service is available on level 2. Peeking through the screens it is a major refit with everything pulled out and removed, tables, bar, carpets and ceiling all gone. Would suggest it will be closed for...
