The days are shortening, everybody is sick at work, you’re packing a jumper just in case… Autumn is coming! This month we’re inviting you to take a few days off to make the most of the warm weather before it’s too late, and plan a Easter trip far away from home where the Easter Bunny can’t get to you. We’re also asking for your input to help us out in a few different areas, including your labour if you’re so inclined!

Escape the Easter Bunny

While everything’s still so rosy, why not make the most of it and take a sneaky mid-week getaway? For GoFrequent and GoOccasional members only, we’re offering 2 days for the price of one on weekday bookings. Simply make a booking before the end of April, making sure no part of the booking touches a weekend and it’s 48 hours or less, and then fill in this form.

Tip of the monthiStock_000051140560Medium

This month we have a GoGet hack you can do yourself to get going as quickly and easily as possible. If a car won’t let you in, won’t start or is just being a pain and you’re in a hurry, you’re welcome to book another car nearby and use that instead. Use our app or mobile site to find another car nearby, book it in, and email at the end of your booking. We’ll fix up your booking so you don’t pay double, and send somebody to attend to the car.

Do you have a hot tip?

We’re building an online depository of knowledge for members, and we’d like your help! We already know what most members ask about, but is there something you’ve found out the hard way that you think others would appreciate knowing?

Explore your heritage

Barwon Park 1 The 2015 Heritage Festival starts soon, running over April and May with 1500 events in very special National Trust properties across Victoria. It’s the Centenary of ANZAC this year so the theme is “Compassion and Conflict”, with many of the events having a WWI angle. Besides that, it’s a great opportunity to visit the gorgeous properties and grand houses that make up the National Trust, some of which only open for the Festival. We have 5 fantastic Heritage Festival trips to give away, ranging from a 1 day getaway to Yarraville to a 3 day expedition to Mooramong! We’ll cover the car, and the National Trust will cover entry! Check them out here, and register your interest for a free trip. Trips are from Melbourne.
