A range of accommodation discounts are also available across all major hotel chains and on ACU preferred hotels.  Contact Campus Travel on 02 9423 8010 to discuss your travel needs.  Booking fees may apply and should be discussed with Campus Travel at the time of booking.

Direct bookings discounts for car hire or accommodation

Staff may book car rental directly with some car hire providers to obtain a discount by quoting the relevant ACU corporate number. For these details please refer to ACU SharePoint for the Car Rental Government Rates.
