It makes sense to extend Family Parks Travel Rewards memberships by six months, says Family Parks CEO Karl Heyman.
“Many Government support programs assume a six month period, so we could see non-essential travel suspended for some time,” Karl explains.
The move is an extension and not a freeze, meaning that essential travellers are still eligible to receive accommodation discounts at participating Family Parks.
And that current discounts and incentives via Family Park’s partnership programs still apply.

MAINTENANCE TIPS AND MORE
In the meantime, Family Parks is reaching out to its grounded audience, with recipes and caravan maintenance advice in conjunction with its partners—Jayco, Thetford and Intuitive Insurance.
“We are all sitting at home at the same time. And right now, many of us are taking the opportunity to maintain our vans and make sure they’re roadworthy once the travel bans are lifted.”
But the eNewsletters also deliver a weekly dose of travel inspiration and feel-good fun.
“We’re keen to stay connected with our Travel Pass members. Sharing our thoughts, ideas and memories from some of our favourite destinations Australia-wide.
“It’s a great opportunity to celebrate our parks’ past milestones. Just keeping that feel good factor going,” says Karl.
A DIRECT LINE TO THE BOARD
Family Parks stays abreast of the situation through the Caravan and Camping Industry Association, accessing vital information ahead of the media.
Weekly, member parks enjoy a direct line to Family Parks board members via the Thursday morning Zoom Coffee Catch-ups.
The video conferences provide park owners and managers a safe forum to attain support, share feedback, discuss ideas and nut out issues in the changing environment.
“It serves as a round table to share stories and experiences,” says Karl.
