You can extend your return date, subject to availability, for a $50 per person fee (you can return up to 6 months from travel date). We do require travel dates at time of booking as this Groupon is based on limited duration specials which cannot be extended for sale past 3/29.

If two of us are travelling together, how do we go about reserving our hotel? Do each of us need to call separately, or can one call for both? Will I need both Groupons when reserving the hotel?

Q:

Hi, I plan to buy two of this Groupon for Sept 21, 2013 departure from LAX, but also would like to add 3 days to Cains to visit the Great Barrie Reef. I saw that the additional 3-day's cost would be starting about $250/person. But, it seems that the Groupon basically covers flights and hotels. What if I'd like to join a group with local transportation to the scenic spots, evening cruise, etc.? Last year I saw a Groupon for 15 days including Cains and visits to local sight-seeing spots, which was $2999/person. Only because I could not go last year, I could not book it that time. Do you have similar packages for this year? I'm not that young to drive around in a rental car (also, I think the driving in Australia is following the British way of driving on the left side of the road, the opposite of the US way. We would feel more comfortable to go around in a tour bus or something like that. If you do have such packages, please let me know, and the price range, etc. It'll be greatly appreciated.

Q:

What does "fee to travel solo" mean? Also, what would the prices be for children aged 9, 7, 5 and 1? Thank you!

Linda W.  asked on  Mar 2, 2013

A:

Hi Linda, if you are traveling alone you would need to pay the fee for the solo traveler. The prices of the children depend on dates and how many adults are traveling. Please email us at info@duatravel.com with this information and one of our destination specialists will get back to you - thanks!

Q:

I have a friend in Melbourne. Is it possible for me to stay with my friend (1-2 weeks) after my stay at the hotel in Melbourne is up? Can another departure date from Melbourne to LA is arranged for me, while I don't need to pay for extra fee?

Ly N.  asked on  Mar 1, 2013

A:

Hi Ly, we can certainly extend your return date from Melbourne (subject to availability). There is a $50 per person fee to do this. Please give us a call on 1800 788 6685 and we can look at dates for you - thanks!

Q:

I feel a little dumb that I can't figure this out, but it seems that 11 days and 8 nights leaves 1 or 2 nights without hotel stay. I assume some of that would be travel time? Or would there be an instance where I would have to pay out of pocket for a night or two? Or am I just thinking about it the wrong way?

Felicia M.  asked on  Feb 28, 2013

A:

Hi Felicia, no problems! You cross the international date line so that is where the 2 extra nights are accounted for. You will not be paying anything additional. Please give us a call on 1800 788 6685 if we can help you further!

Q:

Are both hotels fairly close to the city? Would we be able to take public transportation to and from the locations?

Jessica J.  asked on  Feb 28, 2013

A:

Hi Jessica, both hotels are centrally located, and public transport is easily accessible. You would need to get some sort of shuttle or taxi to and from the airport in both locations as the airports are around 20-30 minutes drive from the city centers - thanks!

Q:

It says travelers will be responsible for their own transfers, what exactly does this mean?

Jessica J.  asked on  Feb 28, 2013

A:
