School holiday bookings

Overview

At RAC Parks & Resorts, we offer a repeat booking process across the WA School Holiday periods. This means if you stay during the school holidays, you have the first opportunity to re-book for the same school holiday period the following year. 

Once repeat bookings have been secured by in-house guests, we offer priority pre-sale to RAC members who have not already booked for the school holiday period, followed by the general public.  

School holiday booking FAQs

How does the RAC member pre-sale work?

If you’re a RAC member, you will have access to book via priority pre-sale for 48 hours before bookings will be open to the general public.

You will need to enter your RAC member number when making your booking. Your RAC member number can be found on your RAC member card, via myRAC or on your latest bill.

What's the best way to try securing a school holiday booking?

Booking demand for school holiday periods are very high and we cannot guarantee accommodation for everyone.  

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.  

If you choose to try to call us, wait times will be longer than usual and our call queues may not be able to accommodate everyone trying to get through.  

We are unable to accept bookings via email.

Do booking parameters apply?

Yes, we have set check-in and check-out days, as well as minimum night stays. Booking parameters vary by location.
