Q) I hear that you can book an Official Gold Coast Schoolies Package for a 3-day, 4-day, 5-day, 6-day or 7-day stay on Any Dates over Schoolies, is this correct?
A) Yes, it is! That’s great news for Schoolies as traditionally there has been little flexibility offered to Schoolies when they book (As they have been forced to book 7-days for set dates).

A) As cash is tight for many Schoolies, Sure Thing Schoolies provides a service where you can to reduce your bond to $100, which is very helpful as many Schoolies bonds are $200 to $300 per person. The following are examples depending on the bond required from the accommodation partner.
