Welcome to the MediStays website located at https://www.medistays.com.au which is owned and operated by MediStays Aust (ABN 45792 767088).

MediStays (the “Site”) has been designed to support and assist people to find and book accommodation near hospitals and medical clinics.

This page explains important information regarding Terms of Use. These Terms of Use (the “Terms”) apply to the use of the Site, the content of the Site, and any material accessed through the Site. The terms “you” and “your” refer to the user or viewer of the Site or the user of information contained in, or accessed through, the Site.

It is important that you read and understand the following Terms. By placing a booking and/or continuing to use and access the Site, you are deemed to have accepted the Terms. MediStays reserves the right to change these Terms by posting the amended Terms on the Site without further notice whereupon they will take immediate effect. If you do not agree with these Terms, do not use or access the Site, contact our care navigators or make any bookings.

Certain legislation in Australia may provide consumer guarantees or impose obligations on MediStays which cannot be excluded, restricted or modified, or only to a limited extent. These Terms are subject to such legislation, including without limitation the Australian Consumer Law. This Site is only directed at customers of legal age. By accepting these Terms you warrant that you are 18 years old or over and that you can form legally binding contracts under applicable law.

Content

MediStays has exercised due care in ensuring the accuracy of the material contained on this Site. All information is provided as general guidance and is not a substitute for independent professional advice.

All information about individual accommodation and service providers is independent of MediStays. They are third party offerings, meaning the goods and services are offered for sale by accommodation and service providers (the “Provider”).

Information on this Site related to any eligibility or assessment of eligibility for accommodation, transport, medical, financial or practical support, services or assistance is provided for your guidance only. It should not be relied upon as a final determination or assessment of any eligibility for such services or support.

Every effort has been made to ensure that the MediStays content is credible and regularly updated. Users should evaluate its accuracy, completeness, currency, relevance and suitability for their purposes, and should obtain appropriate professional advice relevant to their personal circumstances. MediStays cannot guarantee and assume no legal liability or responsibility for the accuracy, currency, completeness, availability, suitability and/or interpretation of the Information.

You acknowledge that your use of any content on this Site is entirely at your own risk and that the Information may contain inaccuracies or errors. MediStays does not accept any liability for any injury, loss or damage incurred by use of or reliance on the Information or this Site, including, but not limited to, errors, omissions or inaccurate information. Links to external and third-party websites are provided for your convenience only.

Accommodation bookings

MediStays is not an accommodation provider. MediStays provides an accommodation booking service (online and via telephone) with third party Providers. Providers offer rates and conditions on MediStays that are exclusively for people requiring accommodation near hospitals. This includes, but is not limited to, patients, carers, families, medical and hospital staff. If you make a booking through the Site for accommodation, that booking is made with the Provider named on the booking page and the Site only acts as a user interface. Accordingly, MediStays has no responsibility for the booking or the accommodation or service as MediStays has no involvement in the price and any fees related to the Service, or in providing the Services that you book. If you have any issues or disputes around your booking and/or the Services, you agree to address and resolve these with the Provider and not with us.

By making a booking via MediStays you enter into a direct (legally binding) contractual relationship with the Provider of the accommodation that you choose. All bookings are subject to the Providers terms and conditions, which should be read in conjunction with these Terms. Our role is limited to facilitating bookings with the Provider. The accuracy of accommodation, availability & pricing information on our Site is the sole responsibility of the Provider. Whilst all efforts are made to ensure that information remains correct, we cannot be held responsible for any errors or omissions.

Payments

Payments for booking are made directly to the Provider of the accommodation or service booked. Payment terms vary by Provider. You will be advised of the Provider’s payment terms at the time of booking. If you provide your credit card details as part of the booking process, these details will be provided securely to the Provider who is solely responsible for processing payment according to their advised terms. All prices are in Australian Dollars and are inclusive of GST, unless otherwise indicated. Confirmation of your booking will only be made once you have been with a confirmation email and/or receipt number.

Changes & Cancellations

Any changes or cancellations to bookings are subject to the Providers terms and conditions, which should be read in conjunction with these Terms. Change and cancellation terms vary by Provider and will be advised during the booking process. Please note that bookings at certain accommodations, or in certain time periods, or for certain room types cannot be cancelled or changed, and where changes or cancellations are permitted, fees may apply. We are unable to assist with disputes relating to the Provider’s booking terms.
