Gift Certificate Terms

1. Reservations

Reservations at all Australian TFE Hotels including Adina Apartment Hotels, Medina Serviced Apartments, Rendezvous Hotels, Vibe Hotels, Travelodge Hotels, Hotel Kurrajong Canberra and Gambaro Hotel Brisbane are subject to allocation and availability at the time of reservation.

Blackout dates may apply to seasonal periods, such as school holidays, public holidays and any special events periods. Room allocations fill quickly during special events, school holidays, public holidays and weekends and no guarantee can be given by TFE Hotels that an allocated room will be available at any hotel or for the days that a customer may prefer. TFE Hotels does suggest that all gift certificate recipients book well in advance to avoid disappointment.

All gift certificate reservations must be made either through the Reservations team or via the hotel direct. Gift certificate recipients must quote the gift certificate number and must also quote credit card details when making a reservation. A valid credit card is required to secure all bookings as a reservation cannot be completed without one. Guests must stay within the voucher validity period - the voucher is not 'redeemed' until the guest has completed their stay in full.

Gift certificate reservations must be made by the nominated recipient, who must also provide photo identification and a valid credit card upon check-in. The given name and surname provided at the time of check-in MUST match those of the person making the reservation. This is for security reasons and cannot be waived. Gift certificates purchased in a name other than that of the guest will not be accepted.

If the amount of credit that is available on the gift certificate is less than the total value of the accommodation booking, the gift certificate recipient will be asked to pay the balance by credit card upon checking out.

2. Cancelling a Reservation

If a gift certificate recipient wishes to cancel their reservation, they must do so by contacting either the Reservations team or the hotel direct and advising of the relevant cancellation. If the gift certificate recipient fails to cancel the reservation 24 hours prior to check-in time (ie by 2.00 pm on the day prior to arrival), the relevant hotel will be entitled to deduct from the gift certificate value one night's accommodation fees in relation to the reservation as a cancellation fee.

3. Redeemable Services

Gift certificates are only valid in Australia at TFE Hotels, which include Adina Apartment Hotels, Medina Serviced Apartments, Rendezvous Hotels, Vibe Hotels, Travelodge Hotels, Hotel Kurrajong Canberra and Gambaro Hotel Brisbane. A gift certificate entitles the bearer to overnight accommodation at the hotel's 'Best Available Rate' at the time of booking. Gift certificates cannot be used in conjunction with any prepaid, sale or discounted rate. Gift certificates will be confirmed at a specified redemption rate advised by Reservations at the hotel at the time of booking.

Any remaining balance on the gift certificate can then be used towards payment or part-payment of the customer's room account from any additional charges or services used in the hotel including; food and beverage charges, mini bar, in-house movies, car parking or other incidental charges. Unless otherwise stated and confirmed at time of reservation, gift certificates are valid for the following room types only: Hotel Kurrajong Canberra, Travelodge and Vibe Hotels - Guest Room only, Medina Serviced Apartments and Adina Apartment Hotels - One Bedroom Apartment only, Rendezvous Hotels - entry level room type, unless otherwise stated.

4. No Additional Value can be put on the Gift Certificate

Additional value cannot be added to a gift certificate. All transactions are declined once the gift certificate balance reaches zero.

However, a gift certificate recipient may redeem two or more separate gift certificates in one transaction.

5. Purchase

A customer must purchase at least $50.00 Australian dollars per gift certificate. Larger values are available at $50.00 increments above $50.00, but the total value of an individual gift certificate may not exceed $500.00 Australian dollars. If more than $500.00 Australian dollars are required, one or more additional gift certificates must be purchased.

TFE Hotels gift certificates are only valid for the Australian dollar amount displayed on the certificate and cannot be exchanged for cash. Gift certificates do not accrue any reward or loyalty points when purchased or redeemed.

The dollar value that is purchased on the gift certificate is a pre-payment. The gift certificate should be looked after by the customer or gift recipient like cash. No credit card, credit line, overdraft protection or deposit account is associated with the gift certificate.

6. Payment

Payment for an online gift certificate may be made by any of the following credit cards: MasterCard, Visa and American Express.
