While Noosa does have a reputation for being expensive, it’s worth it! And even though it’s one of Australia’s favourite beach resorts there are usually some great accommodation deals to be found.

Unless you don’t mind camping or staying in backpacker rooms, it’s likely that your accommodation expenses will be a major part of your holiday budget. If you’d like to save a few hundred dollars these insider tips will help you find and book the best Noosa holiday accommodation deals for your next visit.

Use online booking sites to find and compare accommodation only

Online booking websites like Hotels.com and Trivago can be useful to locate and compare accommodation choices.

If you’re looking for a resort, apartment or hotel in a specific area, or know what your budget is, then their search engines will allow you to filter and order results and make it easier to compare all the options.

For example, while you may find hundreds of two-bedroom units for rent, some online booking sites allow you to see the unit floor size are so you can book the biggest one possible to suit your budget. Having a larger floor area can make a huge difference, especially for families who like to spread out and have plenty of privacy.

Use the online accommodation booking sites wisely to help you compare apples with apples and work out the best options for your holiday style and budget.

Contact the resort directly

Once you’ve worked out exactly where you want to stay, contact the holiday accommodation management directly. While each of the online accommodation websites and apps claims to have the best prices, that’s unlikely to be true.

More likely, as is the case at Beach Breakers Resort, you’ll find the best deals on the accommodation’s own website and be able to lock those preferable rates in by booking directly. Most resorts, hotels and holiday accommodation rentals now have the option for you to book online directly through their website.

Alternatively, get in touch with the management directly by phone or email and politely ask them what the best rates are. This is highly recommended if you have special needs. For example, if you want to hire a portacot, see if the accommodation is family friendly or check details about the bedding arrangements.

Consider visiting out of season or during the week

If you can only come in peak season, during school holidays or over holiday periods such as Christmas or Easter, it’s most likely that you will have to pay a premium rate.

The easiest way to save money is to visit out of season or during the week rather than over a weekend.

Stay longer!

In most cases, the longer you stay the better deal you’ll be able to get. You’ll definitely need to contact the accommodation directly to ask for preferential rates for stays of one week or longer.

Generally, the longer you stay, the more you save. Which is excellent news for all those people who like to spend a few months in Noosa over the winter.

Avoid hidden costs

Consider and check for extra costs like parking, minibars and laundry. All those extras can add up and blow your budget.

Having your own self-contained accommodation where you can cook your own meals, do your own laundry and stock the fridge with your favourite treats is one of the best ways to save money on your holiday.
