Choosing Your Accommodation

There are plenty of things you'll want to look at when choosing your Broadbeach accommodation.

The obvious ones relate to the location of the accommodation, the views and the facilities. But what about the insurance held by the building?

You may not think that insurance is something to worry about, but you really need to ensure that the building operators hold public liability insurance to cover occupants and holiday makers.

Some holiday apartments are owned by big companies whilst some are individually owned. If your room isn't covered by public liability, you and your family could be left out of pocket if you suffer an injury at the apartment complex.

Ask your travel agent about this, or contact the building managers directly and ask to see a copy of their certificate of currency.

It may seem like a funny thing to do, but it will help you to enjoy your Broadbeach holiday on Queensland's Gold Coast without having to worry about any nasty surprises if things go wrong.
