Crystalbrook is slinging free upgrades to fully-vaxxed guests

Crystalbrook Collection is offering free room upgrades to fully-vaccinated guests, just in case your clients need an extra push to get the jab.

The luxury hotel group launched the promotion across its portfolio of hotels and resorts to reward Australians who are doing their part to keep each other safe against COVID-19.

Crystalbrook Collection joins the likes of Qantas, Virgin Australia and G Adventures by introducing a vaccine incentive strategy in the hope to achieve open borders and quarantine-free travel.

“The effects of ongoing lockdowns have been devastating to hotels, restaurants and bars, and to the people that work within these industries,” said Crystalbrook CEO Geoff York.

“Vaccination is the key to saving our industry.

“Offering an upgrade to guests who have vaccinated themselves against COVID-19 is a small gesture of thanks so that we can revive travel and hospitality.”

Crystalbrook Collection’s portfolio includes Crystalbrook Byron (formerly known as The Byron at Byron), Crystalbrook Kingsley in Newcastle, Crystalbrook Albion in Surry Hills, Crystalbrook Vincent in Brisbane and Crystalbrook Riley, Crystalbrook Bailey and Crystalbrook Flynn in Cairns.

The offer is valid for new bookings made before 31 October 2021, for stays before 20 December 2021.

To get the upgrade, you’ll need to book through crystalbrookcollection.com and use the code “VAXED”.

Guests will be required to show their Australian government COVID-19 certificate on arrival.
