    Just had a look at the Mira Moon website but it's not bookable - or has it sold out already...?

    Payment in fulll is pretty much standard. I’m sure agents and hotels will find an angle to exploit the first ruling but the refund policy is a biggie, it gives inmates at least the ability to point to rules being broken. If they could extend to hotels not charging the extra night so much the better BUT let’s not deny this is a positive move.

    my guess is there’s some admin to sort out first. It is of course possible that other hotel availability may miraculously come available

    May be we got lucky with Nina. They would charge the card for 1 days cost as deposit and charge the rest on arrival (as close to that as possible.. Details are hazy,).

    that’s an interesting point. The announcement talks about payment in full. Does that mean that the few hotels currently not doing this will now do so. That’s ok with refund guidance from the authorities but refunds can take 30-60 days. Not helpful for people in a hole (which is the status quo anyway).

    Not all hotels require payment on booking. Four Points only charges you when you are within the 21 days non-cancellation period.

    Note: government notice says payment "in advance" not "on booking"?

    Full payment but your point is valid for those few hotels that don’t take the full lot in advance on booking. Going down well in FB as well.

    Is this old news already?

    Checked Cordis and Regal - their policies. Dunno about the rest.

    The booking is non-refundable, non-changeable and non-cancellable. Full prepayment for the entire stay must be settled within 48 hours upon reservation, otherwise the booking will be cancelled automatically without further notice.


    • Booking is on pre-paid basis upon reservation
    • No amendment or cancellation of booking is allowed once reservation is confirmed
    • No refund for booking cancellation, amendment, shorten stay, no-show, early departure or any unconsumed meal(s) under all circumstances
    • Hotel will accept change of stay period one time only if it is due to flight cancel or delay. Present of valid document issued by airlines is required upon request
    • Hotel will arrange refund in case a quarantine guest requests adjustment or cancellation of booking necessitated by changes in Government requirements as announced by the Government

    So now they are not accepting changes if you get covid overseas and need to delay your return?!?

    Typical govt move...
