$1 hotel rooms , various locations thanks to Roamfree.com **UPDATED LOCATIONS

Posted By: nod, posted 2008/04/23 19:12
Now I think this is a similar offer to the Accor hotels deal that is floating around the forum.
At certain times until the end of June Roamfree will be offering certain hotel deals with $1 a room fee.
All you need to do is become a member of the site and they will email the offers.
Now these guys also now offer cashback which is pretty useless if you are spending a dollar but you may obviously book more
The % they offer appears to be off the sale and not the booking fee - I have checked this on the site but I will email them to clarify

Click thru and you will be take to the sign up page
Expiry date:2008/06/30

  • admin2008/05/30 17:22:04
    Nor me. I think they just didnt bother.
  • carmine2008/05/30 17:57:26
    Looks like they must have had 10 $1 rooms and they all went to family and friends:mad:

    Great, now I am stuck with an inbox full of spam!:eek:
  • nod2008/05/30 20:48:57
    Well it looks like they have this offer on again for the Whitsundays.
    To get the offers you need to sign up to the email newsletter and then you will need to find out the info from there.
    :)

    A winter break up there would be nice :)
  • lilpretzel2008/06/04 13:19:24

    Good price for Queenstown. Otherwise a pretty expensive place to stay. I do love Queenstown.

    Thats what we like to hear. :)
  • lilpretzel2008/06/04 17:50:04
    Shame they don't have them in lots of 2 and I'm sure they didn't have any Saturdays for $1

    I updated as soon as the email came in.

    :D
  • kam762008/06/11 15:46:51
    Does anyone know whether these rooms are s arbeing released at the same time each week? every time I get the email, including today's, the rooms are all sold out, so there don't seem to be many of them. I notice Fashionista somehow managed to get 3 nights and her post here is timed at 4.02am - do you have to be online at this kind of ungodly hour to actually get a room? I'd set my alarm if I knew when they were going to be released!
  • kam762008/06/11 15:48:56
    Ah, just noticed my own query posted just now at 1545 is time stamped 546am, so perhaps no early mornings required, lol!
  • lilpretzel2008/06/11 15:55:56
    All my email arrived at different times.

    Fashionista post was for 4.02 PM, she scored her rooms last week ;)

    I was busy doing other stuff and missed the email, they now have stated this which is really fair..

    IMPORTANT MESSAGE | the following rules apply:

    1) Each member can only make a maximum of 2 bookings of $1 rooms per property, this way all members have a fair chance!

    2) Bookings are not transferable and must be in the name of the person staying at the property!

    3) No cancellations are allowed so please check your booking carefully!

  • voteoften2008/06/12 19:17:59
    Someone is selling the rooms on ebay.
  • lilpretzel2008/06/12 19:20:50
    Thats soooo wrong! They should be reported.

    Well I guess they didn't read last weeks email :whistling:

    Well probably the most effective way would be to contact either roam free or the property and tell them the date that is for sale.:mad:
  • lilpretzel2008/06/19 14:33:41
    New rooms added but it's crashed.

    Not sure if my purchase went through :(

    Good LucK!
  • wicksey852008/06/19 14:36:16
    trying to get busselton but cant get past the main screen, shes crashinggggg!!
  • MamaK2008/06/19 14:39:15
    I can't get in at all- very badly organised
  • wicksey852008/06/19 14:46:43
    got in, but all the nights are mid week and spaced 2 days apart, making you stay at least 2 nights to get 2 free!

    it would be ok to stay overnight if it wasnt 300km away.
  • Keeys2008/06/19 14:47:48
    grrrrr so frustrating :(
  • Keeys2008/06/19 14:54:22

    how do you find the 1$ deals? and what is the catch?
  • admin2008/06/25 18:33:47
    I think you may be too late dealhunter but someone else will confirm.
  • nod2008/06/25 18:51:45
    Dealhunter08 they release $1 rooms for select locations every so often. The best way to find out when they are on and what is on offer is to sign up to the email alert for them :)
    If you click through from the first page of this deal you can sign up :)
  • dealhunter082008/06/25 18:56:02
