The Preview will run for approximately 90 minutes and is designed to showcase the Accor Vacation Club holiday ownership program. At the end of the Preview, you may be invited to apply for an interest in the Accor Vacation Club ARSN 094 718 108 pursuant to the Accor Vacation Club’s Product Disclosure Statement which may be viewed at accorvacationclub.com.au or provided to you as a paper copy free of charge upon request. As the Accor Vacation Club membership is a financial product, certain Participation Criteria apply. The Promoter and its related entities generally consider that the Accor Vacation Club membership is not suitable for persons who do not meet the Participation Criteria.
Participation criteria: To be eligible to attend a Preview and access the subsidised accommodation rate you must, as at the date of the Preview:
1) be a permanent resident of Australia;
2) meet the following income requirements:
a) if you are married, in a life partnership or de facto relationship, have minimum combined household annual taxable income of at least AUD$80,000; or
b) if you are single, have a personal annual taxable income of at least AUD$80,000; (reasonable proof of income must be provided if requested);
3) be employed or, if retired, meet the income requirements noted in b) above or any other reasonable requirements notified to you by us;
4) be competent in verbal and written English; and

(the Participation Criteria).
Employees of any member of the AVC group of companies (including the Promoter) and their immediate families, current Accor Vacation Club members and persons who have attended a Preview in the past 6 months are not eligible to attend a Preview or access the subsidised accommodation rate.
Preview: So as not to inconvenience other guests of the Promoter you (and all other attendees scheduled to attend the Preview, such as your spouse) must arrive at the Preview no later than 15 minutes before the commencement time set out in the Booking Details, otherwise you may be rescheduled to attend the Preview at another time. Please ensure that each person attending the Preview brings one form of photo identification to the Preview. If the photo identification does not include an Australian residential address, we may be required to request additional supporting documentation to verify your identity.
Failure to attend Preview or meet Participation Criteria: In the event that you and/or you and your spouse (if relevant) fail to attend your scheduled Preview or fail to meet the Participation Criteria, you will be deemed to have authorised the Promoter to debit your credit card by an additional charge of AUD$150.00 per night of your stay to meet the cost of the accommodation subsidy provided by the Promoter to you.
Check-in: A credit card preauthorisation is required on check-in to guarantee any incidentals and additional fees if you fail to attend the preview. If you do not have a credit card, a current form of photographic identification will be required along with a cash deposit which will be refunded at time of check out (less any permitted deductions).
Additional nights / upgrades: Room upgrades and extra nights may be available on request to the hotel directly, and are subject to availability and at an additional (and unsubsidised) cost.
Children: If the accommodation offer to which you responded included accommodation for children, age limits may apply and children must use existing bedding. Children under 12 years of age are not encouraged to attend the Preview. At some locations, free childminding is available. Generally childminding for children under the age of 2 years may need to be arranged directly by you at your own expense, however we note that at the Novotel Twin Waters Resort, free childminding is only available for children that are 3 years and above. Please contact the hotel directly for further details regarding childminding facilities.
Should you purchase an Accor Vacation Club Membership during your EHP preview; the Promoter will apply a credit of the total purchase price of your EHP towards the purchase of that Membership. In addition, you will still be eligible to purchase a Première Plus Membership rather than a standard Première Membership.
Changes to the terms and conditions: The Promoter reserves the right to amend or waive these terms or the Participation Criteria at its sole discretion. If the Promoter changes the terms and conditions of your stay it will give you reasonable prior notice of the change, either by email or post.

Cancellation outside of Cooling-off Period or where no Cooling-off Period applies: If you cancel outside of the Cooling-off Period (if relevant), or after your stay has been confirmed, you will forfeit any monies paid to us and you authorise us to deduct a cancellation fee of $150 from your credit card to meet the Promoter’s costs in providing the accommodation subsidy.
