Make My Stay was launched in 2008 as an easy way for people to book quality, independent holiday accommodation Australia wide. The site is designed for those who want to avoid the impersonal service of a large hotel and prefer the independence of quality holiday homes, apartments, cottages and boutique accommodation. Best of all, most of the properties on Make My Stay are listed directly by the property owner so you get to deal direct.

How it all started

As avid travellers we were often frustrated with the lack of online booking systems for privately owned holiday accommodation such as holiday homes, apartments and cottages. Often enquiries would be sent out via email with delayed responses meaning we missed out on the dates we really wanted. By using Make My Stay you can now book that special family holiday or romantic weekend away and know your reservation is secure. You know what’s available and the exact cost of your stay before you book. There is a wide range of accommodation throughout Australia to choose from to suit every one’s tastes and needs. We will be constantly adding more regions and properties each month.

The symbol for Make My Stay is an Aboriginal symbol for resting place. We hope that by using this site not only you will find somewhere to stay where you feel at home but it is also a quick, stress free way of booking your escape.

Make My Stay is not a booking agent, as the rental agreement is directly with the accommodation owner or agent. We act as an accommodation advertising portal and provider of online booking software which allow owners to advertise their holiday accommodation. We do our best to ensure all information about property details and availability are kept up to date but this is the responsibility of each property owner.

Company background

Make My Stay is part of the Click 4 Group Pty Ltd which runs a range of leading financial comparison websites used by tens of thousands of Australians each month. The Click 4 Group is committed to providing quality & value for Australian consumers.

We are committed to being an ethical business and encourage responsible travel practices to minimise the impact travel makes on the environment. We also reduce the impact our business makes by making use of electronic communication rather than printed mail where possible, using energy efficient products, green energy, low emission vehicles and offsetting carbon produced by energy consumption & travel.

In fact we are one of the few companies to be ‘Climate Positive Certified’ by Climate Rehab. This means that not only are we taking steps to minimise our greenhouse gases, we also offset at least 10% more greenhouse gas emissions than we emit – this makes us climate positive. We want to be part of the solution – not the problem.
