Lay by Holidays Part 1

Thursday, February 28, 2002
Geraldine Brooks of Bundaberg wrote to Getaway and asked if anyone offered a lay-by system for holidays. And guess what? They do!

Geraldine Brooks of Bundaberg wrote to Getaway and asked if anyone offered a lay-by system for holidays. We thought it was a great idea and set the challenge to all holiday operators to introduce a holiday lay-by scheme, similar to the way you can pay off a Christmas hamper.

Well, the floodgates opened. Geraldine, you don’t know what you started!

As promised, if your company was willing to take part, we would plug it on Getaway. So here we go, the first lot who have taken up the Getaway challenge.

Thank you to all the companies who participated. Contact details for all places will be on our website and fact sheets. We will give more names as they come to hand.
