Booking of Holiday Accommodation and Visa Application



After we had booked our flight to Gold Coast Australia, I sourced around for a suitable holiday accommodation.   Our flight back to Singapore on 30 Nov 2014 was at 9.25 am which meant we had to be at the airport around 6.25 am. So I was torn between booking an accommodation in Surfers Paradise (central) and one nearer to the Gold Coast airport (further from the theme parks). 

I had read that Surfers Paradise could be noisy at night. In the end we booked a two bedroom apartment at Swell Resort through Agoda.com as the resort is just a 15 minutes drive from Gold Coast Airport and the apartment has a king size bed in the master bedroom. 

After we booked the apartment, we sent an email to Swell Resort just to check and confirm on a number of things. They also gave us the instructions on after reception hour check in procedure. Their reception hours are 9 am to 5 pm on weekdays, 9 am to 2 pm on Saturdays and 9 am to 1 pm on Sundays.

For Singaporeans, we also need to apply for a travel visa to enter into Australia and this can be done online.
