How to get last minute family accommodation in Echuca?

Accommodation in Echuca can be hard to come by, especially during the high demand school holiday and public holiday periods. Try these tips to find affordable accommodation just in time.

πŸ‘Ά Travelling with an infant

When travelling with an infant, consider buying a portacot or safely co-sleeping. This can often unlock many more hotel options which may otherwise not work for you.

Travelling with young kids

Similarly, bringing a small inflatable mattress and a sleeping bag can be the difference between locking-in accommodation or missing out.

  • list fewer kids when searching accommodation sites online
  • make sure the property policy is ok with this; you may need you to get in touch with them
