Booking Your Accommodation

How to Book Accommodation

The Symposium Managers will forward your contact details, reservation and deposit to the hotel of your choice.

Deposit

A deposit of a minimum one night’s accommodation must be paid at time of booking to guarantee your hotel reservation. Your hotel booking is unable to be confirmed until the deposit payment is received.

Please Note: The balance of your hotel account for all nights booked/stayed (less the deposit paid to the Symposium Managers) will be payable to the hotel at the time of checkout.

All Rates include the 10% Goods and Services Tax (GST) and are quoted in Australian Dollars.

Group Bookings

If your organisation would like to make a group booking at a hotel/s not listed above the Symposium Managers can secure rooms and negotiate group rates on your behalf with the hotel of your choice, subject to availability.

With a large network of hotel contacts our experienced staff are able to ensure all your needs are met and your booking is managed efficiently. Please contact us via telephone on +61 2 9265 0700 or by email iscas2014@arinex.com.au

Making Changes to Your Booking

Changing Your Booking

Any required changes to your booking must be requested in writing to the Symposium Managers (iscas2014@arinex.com.au) and not directly to the hotel. Please note that any changes should be made to the Symposium Managers by 30 April 2014.

Checking Into Your Accommodation

Check-in and Check-out times

Check-in time is normally 1500 hours and check-out time is normally 1000 hours. Whilst hotels will do everything possible to accommodate early arrivals, if you wish to be guaranteed immediate access to your room upon arriving before 1500 hours you will need to pre-book, and pay for the previous night. Similarly, if you wish to guarantee a late checkout you will need to book for the next night.

Please indicate this at the time of making your booking during the registration process. Alternatively, if you have already made your accommodation booking you can request this additional night by advising the Symposium Managers in writing (iscas2014@arinex.com.au)

Hotel Check in Procedures

As per standard hotel policies and procedures attendees will be required to provide a credit card or full cash payment upon check in. This is to cover any incidental charges that may be incurred during your stay and all remaining unpaid room nights.

The hotel will hold on your credit card, until point of check out, an amount which covers all unpaid accommodation nights reserved plus a daily amount for incidental charges. Any monies still being held on your credit card by the hotel, once you have settled your account and checked out will be released.

If you will be settling your accommodation account by cash you will be asked to pre pay for your accommodation in full when you check-in plus a cash deposit to cover incidentals that may be incurred during your stay. Should you not utilise any incidentals during your stay the cash deposit, for incidentals only, will be refunded to you by the hotel upon check-out.

Please note the daily incidental charge may vary across the listed hotels.

Late Arrivals

Please indicate on your registration form or notify the Symposium Managers in writing if you will arrive at your hotel after 1800 hours as failure to do so may mean that your room will be released.
