The anticipated Click Frenzy Travel sale has kicked off once again however this year, the online event is dedicated to helping travel businesses and ‘places in need’ around Australia. And to boost support, the sale will run for longer than usual, kicking off at 7pm Tuesday, March 17 (AEST) and ending at midnight Thursday, March 19.
Between the months-long bushfire crisis and now the coronavirus pandemic, that’s quickly ruling out international travel, the Australian tourism industry has faced some serious turmoil this year – and there doesn’t appear to be an end in sight. Many businesses and jobs are at risk, and particularly those in bushfire-affected regions who lost a significant portion of their peak season income.
Thus, the Click Frenzy – Places in Need event is here to lend a helping hand to businesses in the industry by offering them complimentary promotion and advertising. This year, there will be a spotlight on domestic treasures to boost local travel and only international travel deals for destinations deemed safe by authorities. Buyers wanting to support this initiative will need to look out for the ‘Places in Need’ badge during the sale. And to eliminate the hesitation to make travel plans in current circumstances, there’ll be flexible dates and cancellation terms so buyers can hold onto their vouchers for future dates.
Roughly, there will be over 500 deals with discounts up to 70 per cent on offer ranging from airfares, holiday packages, accommodation, experiences and tours and car hire and travel insurance. Expect to see deals from well-known brands including Virgin Australia, Accor Hotels, G Adventures, Air New Zealand, Adrenaline, Intrepid Travel, Webjet, Flight Centre and more.
“Despite the current environment of caution, Australians love to travel and plan holidays. There are hundreds of safe and attractive destinations across Australia and the world,” says Grant Arnott, managing director of Click Frenzy.
“Out of the carnage we see an opportunity for us to do something good for the many businesses in dire straits,” he added, speaking to News.com.au.
“Let’s regrow. No one needs to travel tomorrow, but this is an opportunity for Australians to look at the many amazing destinations available, with some incredible offers for forward bookings,” Mr Arnott said.
