Many sporting clubs and associations travel. It might be a short day trip, a longer trip interstate, or perhaps even overseas. There are also plenty of members of clubs who travel personally for business or leisure…
To suit all the above needs, Choice Hotels have launched a great new community sports initiative for grassroots sporting clubs across Australia and New Zealand called Choice Sports.
Choice Hotels have more than 260 hotels, suits and resorts across Australia and New Zealand, plus over 6,300 hotels worldwide.
What's on Offer?
Choice Sports offers sporting clubs and organisations 15% discount on accommodation and the opportunity to earn incremental revenue through a 7% kick-back to the club to assist in raising important funds.
Discount: 15% off
Commission: 7% goes back to your club
*It’s free to sign-up and there’s no catch!!
