What Are Your Prices Throughout the Year? Do You Offer Discounts?

We've put together the following FAQ's to explain how our pricing works and to help you to book the perfect property for your group.

How does your pricing work?

At Professional Holiday homes we use a dynamic pricing system. This means that pricing varies automatically on a daily basis based on both market demand and the property's previous bookings (our system sucks in pricing data from all the major booking websites to give us a very accurate and up-to-date picture of demand).

What periods are the most expensive?

For our coastal properties there is significantly increased demand for both school holidays and long weekends during spring, summer and autumn. Compared to our low season rates in winter (from May to August) you can expect to pay the following (approximate) premiums:

  • Xmas / Jan school holidays - 300% higher
  • Easter school holidays - 50% higher
  • Easter Long Weekend - 300% higher
  • September School Holidays - 30% higher
  • October Long Weekend - 200% higher

February, March, October and November are our shoulder periods where prices are reasonable and the weather is great!

Do You Have last-Minute Discounts?

Yes! We have significant last minute discounts. The price on all properties drops the closer you get to the check-in date, but if you leave it too late to book you may miss out on the perfect property for your group.

When am I most likely to grab a bargain?

For coastal properties, winter is our quietest season and the majority of our properties are priced close to their minimum rates during May, June and August.

If you are looking to get away with school aged kids, July school holidays are typically priced only marginally above our minimum rates.

If you're looking for a bargain long weekend, the Queen's birthday (June) long weekend is again priced only slightly higher than our minimum winter rates.

What properties are the most expensive?

Properties with the following features are typically priced higher due to demand:

  • Beachfront / Waterfront
  • Views
  • Swimming Pools
  • Spas
  • Large properties (sleeping 12+)

How can I pick a property that is the right price for me?

Here are some tips on tracking down the right property at the right price:

  • Pick a property that is close to the size of your group. For example, if you have a group of 4, pick a property that has a capacity of 4-6. You will get better value this way.
  • Properties become cheaper the further they are from a beach or bay - so if distance to the water doesn't concern you, pick a property further away to save money
  • Towns without beaches are significantly cheaper than those with. For example, Erowal Bay or Basin View
  • Avoid features that you don't need or won't use, such as pools or spas
  • Pick a property that has been listed recently (it will say this at the top of the description) - new properties are often priced competitively to get bookings through the door quickly. Over time they become more expensive as they get more bookings and reviews
  • Book last minute - we have substantial discounts if you book between 0-14 days from check-in. But if there's a property you really want you risk the chance of missing out!
  • If you aren't bringing a pet, our non-pet friendly properties are often a little cheaper.

We have a wide range of properties of different sizes and prices on our website. We hope this guide helps you to find the property that is right for you.
