Frequently Asked Questions - Wotif Accommodation

Frequently Asked Questions

✅ Where can I learn more about changing or cancelling my hotel reservation?

For more information around selecting new dates or cancelling your existing hotel booking, go to the Wotif Customer Service Portal.

✅ Where can I get the best travel deals?

For almost 20 years, Wotif has worked hard to help Aussies find affordable, great-value travel deals. Aussies love a bargain and with thousands of travel options available, we give travellers heaps of choice, as well as the ability to compare deals and make informed decisions based on where and how they like to travel.

Insider tip: Book your flights, accommodation or even car hire all at the same time to create your own custom package! You'll unlock great savings.

✅ How do I find out about Wotif's best hotel deals?

When you book with Wotif, take a sec to create a free account and subscribe to Wotif emails. You'll then receive regular deal and sale updates, and you'll get access to secret Mates Rates deals when you're logged in, which will save you between 10% and 50% on awesome select stays.

✅ Do hotels get cheaper at the last minute?

If an accommodation provider has lots of unbooked rooms for a certain date, they will often lower their rates to try to fill them up, which can mean great deals for you! But if it’s a busy time to travel, rates can also be higher than usual. If you need to travel to a specific destination at a specific time, it’s often better to book in advance to avoid missing out. But if your plans are flexible, booking at the last minute can allow you to jump on an awesome deal. Find last minute deals now.

✅ How can I book a hotel for cheap?

One great way is to use the FREE Wotif app! Booking on the app can unlock exclusive mobile deals, which often aren’t available when you book on a computer. The Wotif app also helps you manage your entire trip, with easy 24/7 access to your itinerary – which means you can change or cancel your hotel bookings while you’re on the go.

✅ Do I have to pay for my hotel when I book?

Many of the hotels on Wotif give you the option to book now and pay later, so the choice is often yours! If you’d really prefer to pay later, filter your search results to show only ‘Reserve now, pay later’ properties. Got a Wotif coupon? Lucky you! Just remember that you’ll need to pay upfront in order to use it.

Insider tip:  If you’re travelling overseas and the Aussie dollar is strong for your destination, it’s a great idea to pay now and lock in your accommodation at the cheaper exchange rate.

✅ Can I book caravan park accommodation through Wotif?

Yes, you can! Wotif is your one-stop shop for travel, with all sorts of accommodation options, including caravan and holiday parks. They’re convenient, family-friendly, and the perfect combo of adventure and comfort.

✅ Is it better to book directly with the hotel?

Using an online booking site like Wotif allows you to research, compare, book and manage all of your travel in one place, which is a real timesaver! You can also book your hotel and flight and/or car hire together as a package, which will give you an extra discount on your stay that’s not available if you book separately. Plus, all of Wotif’s hotels and packages are backed by the Wotif Price Promise. That means if you find a lower price online up to 24 hours before check-in, we’ll match it by refunding the difference.

✅ What’s special about the hotel reviews on Wotif?

We’ve got real, verified reviews from millions of Aussie and Kiwi travellers, all based on first-hand experiences. Because Wotif is dedicated to serving Aussie and Kiwi travellers, we prioritise the ordering of our reviews so that the ones written by Aussies and Kiwis come up first.

✅ How old do you have to be to book a hotel?

You must be 18 or older to book a hotel with Wotif. Sorry, kids!

✅ Is there a fee to cancel my hotel reservation?

Booking a hotel with Wotif means you can manage, change or cancel your reservation online or by calling our 24/7 customer support team. While there are usually no cancellation fees charged by Wotif, some properties may charge their own cancellation fees.


Insider tip: If you think your plans might change, look for a ‘Free cancellation’ deal when you do your hotel search.
