Making a booking 2021

Some lodges may have overriding conditions and rates if COVID-19 precautions are in place

Online Bookings

  • Members of Anton, Dinner Plain, Falls Creek and Perisher are encouraged to use the online booking system that is accessible from their websites.
  • The online booking system allows AAC members to book into most other AAC lodges as well as their own. (Most of the AAC lodges have enabled this feature.) To book into an AAC lodge other than their your own, log on to the desired lodge using your member number, surname and the name of your own lodge from the ‘Login From’ list.

For bookings to be confirmed

  • Current annual subscription must have been paid
  • Payment in full must accompany bookings

Priorities

  • Different priority bookings are processed on the different dates. When lodging bookings that have different priorities, it is essential to make separate bookings and separate payments for the different priorities, otherwise your bookings will be processed at the date of the lowest priority you lodge.

Family and guests

  • Non-member spouse and children of a member must be accompanied by the member. Different conditions apply to Niseko.
  • The lodges are run for their members. Guests must be booked, and paid for, by their accompanying member.

  • For each applicant being booked please supply
    • Full name, sex and membership status (ie 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th priority).
    • The dates you require and any second preference dates.
    • Telephone numbers & email addresses where you can be contacted day and night. Mail, email & fax bookings must be on printed booking form, available on the website.

What to take

  • Bookings voucher must be taken to all lodges , except where online bookings do not require them
  • Most lodges provide linen in winter but require you to supply your own in summer. See individual lodge details.

Changing bookings

  • Bookings are made available only to the people specifically named on booking vouchers. Bookings are not transferable. If someone booked can't attend, a new booking must be made through the booking agent, who will give preference to those on the waiting list. Please don't arrive at the lodge with a 'transferred' booking - it won't be accepted.

Cancelling bookings

  • Please notify cancellations promptly

Printing Booking Information

Most single articles can be printed using the gear/settings icon that appears near their top right corner. This means you can print just the bit that you want.

If you need to print out all the booking information in a single document, here is a version formatted for printing as a single document. It is a compendium of the web pages, not a format optimised for print.

Printable Document 2020 (National info & all lodges). 2021 document available soon    

If you print double sided it will take 4 sheets of A4, with each side showing 2 "pages". It will be easiest to read if you select Flip on Short Edge on your printer settings.
