Guests will receive notification the moment Winning Holidays are notified giving guests the option to:
- transfer to alternate accommodation, or
- request a full refund.

Any guest found to be hosting a party of any kind or over-crowding the property will be immediately evicted without refund.

Yes. Collection days will be displayed in the Winning Holidays Compendium provided. Guests are responsible to place the red and yellow bins to the curb on collection day if this occurs during your stay. Bin collection will pertain to private homes or duplexes only, whereas unit blocks will have a strata set-up to take the bins out for you. The best indication is to check the street / neighbours who have put out their bins as you would at home.
Reception can be affected from time to time due to the weather or distance from the telecommunications tower. Problems we saw in the old days have been significantly improved since the introduction of the digital signal.
