The Anton Booking Officer is:
Online booking into Anton is available to Anton and AAC members for themselves, accompanying family and guests. Bookings can only be made by financial members and all communication and confirmation is via email, so your email address must be kept current in the system.
Payment for online bookings can only be made with Visa or Master Card. If other forms of payment are required, bookings must be made via the Booking Officer.
Only one credit card can be used per booking, where payment needs to be split over several cards, a separate booking needs to be made for each card used.
Once the booking has been made, an Invoice will be emailed to the member for immediate payment. Failed payments, or those not made within 24 hours will cancel the booking.
If at the time you want to book there are no beds available, you can select ‘waitlist’ at step one of the booking process. If there is a cancellation you will be advised and offered the booking.
School Holiday Bookings
Bookings for the July School Holidays lodged between February 1st and March 15th will be allocated by the Booking Officer based on the following criteria:
1st The Date the request was lodged in the system, or received by the booking officer.
2nd Anton Members (including Juniors)
4th. Anton Family
During this lodgement period (from February 1st until March 15th), the booking grid will show bed preferences only, NOT confirmed bookings. At the end of this period the booking officer will allocate and confirm bookings by email based on the priority criteria.
Since bookings lodged during this period represent ‘requested preferences’. You can still lodge your booking for those beds (i.e. beds shown as taken in the booking grid). The system allows this only for July school holiday bookings logged between February 1st and March 15th. After that time, and for all other bookings at all other times, the grid shows confirmed bookings
Since lodged booking requests (as shown in the booking grid from February 1st through March 15th) do not indicate a person’s priority (Member, AAC, Family or Guest), a person with a higher priority could be allocated that bed, so it is important that you indicate secondary bed preferences or special booking requirements/limitations to the booking officer in the comments field so that the booking officer can consider these during the allocation process.
Wherever possible (in keeping with the priority system) bookings will be allocated their preferred beds/rooms.
Note: Booking priority will be based on the lowest tariff category in the booking e.g. A booking with a member and family will have higher priority than a booking with member and guest. If you have mixed booking categories in your party, and you want to ensure that the highest priorities are accommodated you need to make separate bookings for each category.
From March 15th to March 18th bookings for the school holiday period will be frozen while the booking office completes the bed allocation process.
You will be emailed your room and bed allocations by March 18th, booking acceptance will require immediate payment by Credit Card as per AAC rules.
If you have any queries regarding this process, please contact the Booking Officer.
Sports Week Bookings
A non-refundable surcharge is applicable to ‘Sports Week’ bookings to pay for the weeks ski lessons and races, is applicable to all members and guests staying at Anton during that week. If you haven’t selected the surcharge for each person in your booking (at step 2 of the booking process), your booking will have the status ‘Waitlisted’, pending review and authorization if applicable, by the booking officer.
