When you join you receive $750 or more in Getaway Cash (GCash) travel credits. The amount of travel credits in your account represents the maximum amount of discounts you can receive as a member. So when you make a booking or proceed with a travel plan, we apply some of those credits to the package price and you pay the difference.
Getaway Cash (GCash) travel credits go towards the full retail value of your Australian or overseas holiday. Travel credits therefore reduce the amount you pay from full retail down to travel industry wholesale (or lower).
As part of that, GCash travel credits pay for the professional travel services you receive as a member. Normally, if you booked through a traditional travel agency you would pay a 20 to 40% premium for those services.
Full retail value (including professional agency services): $3,900
Less Getaway Cash travel credits: $975
Amount you pay (industry wholesale): $2,925
Maximum GCash usage: Up to 40% of full retail value. The average is around 25% of the price.
"Full retail value" (aka. "normal retail price") is the price of either (a) a competing travel quote or (b) what we estimate you would pay for your customised travel plan through another travel company offering similar inclusions and services, or (c) the non-member price of a pre-packaged itinerary. The amount of Getaway Cash that can be used is entirely at our discretion. Standard price and full retail value comparisons are with similar packages offered elsewhere or what we estimate would be payable by a non-member for the same or similar package and may include a value we define for specialty travel agency services.
The following terms and conditions apply to the use of Getaway Cash discount travel credits (also called "GCash") and are subject to change without notice. By purchasing or agreeing to proceed with a travel or accommodation package, making a travel and/or accommodation enquiry or booking with Australian Escapes and/or engaging the services of Australian Escapes in any other way you agree to be bound by these terms and conditions and any reasonable amendments.
The Getaway Cash (GCash) discount credits system is a method of obtaining and measuring the value of discounts offered by Australian Escapes. GCash credits are also referred to as "travel credits".
GCash credits may only be used for the purpose we describe in member information and cannot be redeemed for cash, goods or services except as we specify. You can use your GCash credits towards the following types of travel:
GCash may be used towards travel up to a limit set by us on a case-by-case basis according to the normal retail price of the package. Each time you make a booking we use GCash travel credits from your account towards your holiday. The amount used is based on the amount of retail margin in the package. Getaway Cash cannot be used to get a free holiday.
"Full retail value" also referred to as "normal retail price" is the price of either (a) a competing travel quote or (b) the retail price we estimate that you would pay for your customised travel plan through another travel company offering the same level of service, or (c) the non-member price of a pre-packaged itinerary. The amount of Getaway Cash that can be used is entirely at our discretion.
