After successfully partnering with around 130 properties throughout the Caribbean, Asia and the South Pacific, myTime today announced that four hand-picked hotels in Australia will join the exclusive club.

"At last we have a means to recognise our very special guests and acknowledge a great partner in Flight Centre. myTime is a distinctive endorsement of value, recognition and trust in our product and is sure to deliver my property a distinctive competitive advantage. myTime guests will receive exclusive hospitality gestures and value added extras," said Paul Kamsler, General Manager of the Pacific International in Cairns.

Maree Cahill, the Operations Manager for the Paradise Palms Resort, said, "myTime allows us to offer a level of service that has become less and less common place over the last few years in Tropical North Queensland. This program allows us to re-introduce the small things that make a holiday special, such as a call from Front Office mid-way through the guest's stay to check that everything is okay and whether we can offer anything else.  myTime offers a number of seemingly small touches that enhance the guests' experience significantly."

The myTime concept was developed in 2011, when Flight Centre approached selected hotels that were willing to provide extra services at no additional cost to guests who booked their accommodation through Flight Centre. The first properties to jump on board were located in Cancun, the Riviera Maya and Aruba. The scheme has been very successful and today's announcement of expansion into Australia is testament of the response received from appreciative holiday-makers.

Together with the Pacific International in Cairns and the Paradise Palms at Kewarra Beach, the Sheraton Mirage Port Douglas and the Parkroyal Darling Harbour in Sydney will become dedicated myTime properties.

Essentially myTime is an exclusive club you become a member of without even joining, signing up or being added to a database. Simply by booking your accommodation through Flight Centre, you automatically become eligible for fantastic inclusions to make your holiday that extra bit special. myTime guests will in general receive a welcome drink on arrival, a welcome gift that includes discount vouchers and potential late check-out.

"Specific to the Pacific International, guests will also receive complimentary Wi-Fi, a $10 discount on a hot buffet breakfast, 10 per cent off the Churrasco Experience Brazilian barbeque dinner and more," said Mr Kamsler.

"The Pacific International is located right on the beautiful Cairns Esplanade. It's independently owned by a local Cairns family, so it's not just a cookie cutter chain hotel and is proudly a modern hotel with an historic pedigree."

Meanwhile, the Paradise Palms Resort is one of the newest resorts of its size in Tropical North Queensland, opening in February 2009 - this means that it's been built to the best standards of design and eco-friendliness. Additional extras specific to the property include a complimentary one-day family pass to the resort's Adventure Playground for guests who stay in a two bedroom apartment and three hours complimentary broadband internet access for guests staying for three or more consecutive nights.

"Guests will experience Tropical North Queensland at its finest.  There are few hotels situated in the hinterland, and afford beautiful views of the rainforest and the rolling green foothills of the Great Diving Range and beyond.  The Paradise Palms Resort has been designed to take advantage of the climate and scenery, and this is best evidenced by the covered open air halls and stairwells which ensures a breeze all year round, as well as every room enjoying a furnished balcony and views," said Ms Cahill.

To book your accommodation at the Pacific International in Cairns or the Paradise Palms on Kewarra Beach talk to your local Flight Centre consultant and enjoy all the myTime benefits.
