A few weeks ago we highlighted some of our favourite American Express Open For Travel Offers. If you weren’t aware, American Express is offering statement credits on some of the biggest travel brands in Australia right now, and the offers finish on 30 November 2020! (Hilton has extended their offer until 31st of December.)

With travel slowly picking up again, now’s a great time to lock in some staycations and get a sweet discount doing so when you save the American Express offers to your card!

There are a lot of deals to be had on both hotels and car rental, so here are some more staycation ideas you can book now.

Five star luxury at Four Seasons

Four Season Sydney is one of the luxury destinations worth planning a staycation for!

    • Hi Janus, I’ve done some dummy bookings and the regular price was $303, after the promo code it dropped to $242. Make sure you are looking for 2 nights within the promo period (up until the end of this month) and it should work. Cheers, Immanuel.

      • Doesn’t work for me either. I am getting an error nay dates that I tried to choose .. will there be a confirmation what’s included in that promo code? Thanks.

    • Hey Chris, I’ve asked a few friends in Vic and most had only received the car rental offers for their card. I assume when this promotion was planned, travel and hotel stays were somewhat out of the picture (hence the targetting).
