    Hi Doug

    Sorry for being so long getting back my pick of these resorts would be Kyneton or Nepeon they would give you more to see and do around the resorts in the Melbourne area
    Have you tryed to look up www.dealive .com they seem to have a lot of resorts available at that time of year more than you have said if you are comming all the way down here you want to see the best there is so you want to have more than 1 week try 3 or 4 weeks and do the far north of Aus .(Barrier Reer)and the Sydney and the Melbourne areas Kyneton would be ok for the Melbourne area

    Hi Marc

    Yes any help you can give would be ok by me you would know more about resorts than l will ever know l have stayed in some resorts but not all of them . We live in the south west Victoria near the town of Warrnambool at the end of the Great Ocean Road so any help from the Gold Coast will help and some one that knows about resorts we can not say no to that help.

    As you most likely know Sydney lives in Sydney so she will be able to help there so if anyone wants help with Australia for a good holiday we have a team of us to help down here.There is so much for every one to see and do down under so just ask and we will try and help.

    Making our points work for us


    We bought an APVC Platinum membership in march this year. I recently attended a workshop and there were some pretty angry people there that have paid a lot of money and not used their points.

    I would like to book a two bedroom apartment in Melbourne for the 8th, 9th, 10th of May but cannot book until 45 days prior to check in due to our booking being less than a week and including a Friday and Saturday night. It is really annoying because we have already bought our flights and are tempted to just book accommodation not using our points (which is very frustrating).

    I guess my question is - is there anywhere that members can ask other members if they would like to use their points either side of when we want to book making our total booking up to one week and thereby we can book 12 months in advance?

    Hope to hear from you.

    Not that I really know how to check whether I get a respons to this question.

    I am afraid APVC makes the rules on the booking out the 12 months in advance they sell points or credits to give you a weeks vacation .
    The 45 day rule is for less then the week as you want only the 3 days it would come under a bonus time that you can book it is time that has not been booked out for the week.
    To get a 2 bedroom unit in Flinders Street in Melbourne you would have to take the risk that no one has booked it for the week before you if you take the bonus time .
    And to get someone to take the other days it would be very hard if you booked the week .
    The other way you have is to book your accommodation so you have it you could look up the accor site they have 2 bedroom units at the Dockland apartments or at Ibis Hotel in Therey Street both are on the edge of the city square I would take the Dockland appartments over the Ibis hotel but they are a bit dearer .
    Use your points for a week later in the year some where

    Hi BoodieMummy,

    Welcome to TS4MS

    I'm glad to have another APVC member around. I would suggest waiting for the 45 days to lapse then try for the booking. If you don't have any luck, I would check some of the cheap last minute hotel deals at sites like wotif.
