Enjoy a fun and stress-free family holiday by following RAC’s school holiday booking process.
We’re proud to offer a large range of family-friendly activities across our RAC Parks & Resorts, with school holiday accommodation to suit every budget and style of travel.
To make things easy, we offer a repeat booking process across the WA school holiday periods. If you stay during the school holidays, you have first dibs when it comes to re-booking for the same dates the following year. Once the repeat booking process is complete, we then offer priority pre-sale to RAC members before releasing remaining bookings to the general public.

- Q What’s the best way to try and secure a school holiday booking?
Booking demand over the school holiday periods is very high, and we cannot guarantee family-friendly accommodation for everyone. This includes options in our caravan parks and camping sites.
For the best chance to secure your preferred accommodation, we recommend booking online via our website. Please refrain from using multiple devices when booking, as this puts strain on our website and will impact load times.
Please be aware that our booking engine doesn’t have a hold cart functionality. Accommodation is only secured once you have completed your booking.
If you try to contact us by phone, please note that wait timings will be longer than usual. Our call queues may not be able to accommodate everyone trying to get through.
- Q Do booking parameters apply?
Yes, we have set check-in and check-out days for our school holiday bookings, as well as minimum night stays. These will vary depending on location.

We are unable to guarantee we will be able to accommodate your request, but will endeavour to do so. Thank you for your understanding.
