It may be that extra special items like a Swiss watch or MacBook require additional protection or should be covered under home and contents insurance to make sure you’re not left out of pocket should the worst happen.” Flight delays are also likely to be experienced by those travelling to the Northern Hemisphere, as severe weather conditions are expected across the USA and Europe. “A white Christmas isn’t always a good thing for travellers. Aussies visiting the US should expect a chilling winter, with plenty of rain and snow. This applies across the States, as bitter cold temperatures are even predicted to reach as far south as Florida and the Gulf Coast.[4] Buying travel insurance as soon as you’ve booked your flights can help to protect against cancellations and delays.” To help minimise the impact of potential misadventures, the team at World2Cover has five top tips for local holidaymakers heading away this summer: 1. Leave early – It’s the oldest trick in the book, but Christmas falls on a Sunday meaning you can expect even more people than usual to be hitting the roads, train lines and airways this Friday evening. Be sure to give yourself plenty of time to make your flights and connections, as most travel insurance policies will not cover missed flights simply because of traffic.  2. First in, best dressed – As it’s one of the busiest travel periods of the year, it’s not uncommon for accommodation providers and airlines to oversell spaces. Be sure to confirm your reservations and check in as early as possible to help protect you’re booking. 3. Avoid the ‘silly’ part of the season – Partygoers can get carried away with the Christmas spirit. Keep your wits about you when celebrating, don’t leave any personal items unattended – whether on the beach or at a bar seat – and make sure you know how to get back to your accommodation safely. Failure to take due care of your belongings can actually invalidate travel insurance coverage for any lost items. 4. Pack with care – If you’re taking Santa’s presents with you, safely wrap and carry any fragile or valuable items, taking as many as possible in your carry on to avoid any tears come Christmas morning. 5. Hope for the best, prepare for the worst, even if you’re staying close to home – It’s important to be fully protected, even while travelling domestically. Unfortunately, there are still plenty of things that can go wrong on a local trip, including delays, cancellations, and lost or damaged luggage. Domestic cover can help protect against the impact of these potential nasty surprises, meaning you won’t be out of pocket during the already expensive holiday period.   For more information on the comprehensive range of coverage options from World2Cover, visit www.world2cover.com.au.

Shitbox Rally 2017 forms strategic partnership with Bingle 2016-12-18T21:00:00Z shitbox-rally-2017-forms-strategic-partnership-with-bingle-1 Monday 19th December 2016: Box Rallies is excited to announce Bingle as a major sponsor of Shitbox Rally 2017. The leading car insurer will also be supporting the rally with free third party property damage insurance.   Starting in Adelaide on Saturday 27 May 2017, 450 participants will take to the Australian outback in cars worth less than $1,000 all to raise much-needed funds for the critical cancer research initiatives of Cancer Council Australia. Shitbox Rally now in its eighth year was founded by James Freeman in 2010. Each year, the rally challenges teams to explore some of the most remote regions in Australia. In 2017, the rally will embark on an arduous 3,800km seven-day road adventure from Adelaide to Cairns via the Oodnadatta Track and Plenty Highway. “The rally teams already cover numerous costs and devote so much of their own time in preparing for the rally and fundraising,” says Alison Connolly, Bingle’s Executive Manager, “Bingle believes in making everything ‘as simple as it sounds’ so as part of our sponsorship we’re proud to be making things simpler by providing free Third Party Property Damage Insurance to the rally teams.” Box Rallies Founder James Freeman welcomes Bingle’s support to the rally. “For years I have thought that an insurance company would be an ideal sponsor for the rally, so I am thrilled Bingle have come on board for 2017.  They have the right attitude for what we do at Shitbox and they are very supportive to our philosophy around humor and challenges. Their tongue in cheek name works so well with ours and the support they are giving to the rally teams is greatly appreciated,” says Mr Freeman. To further support Shitbox Rally, Bingle is also entering its own rally team to get the full experience for themselves. Shitbox Rally has raised over $8.164 million to date since its inception in 2010.

Shitbox Rally was founded in 2009 by James Freeman after both of his parents died from cancer within 12 months of each other as a way of raising money and awareness in the fight against cancer – a disease that now affects so many people. Over the last seven years, Shitbox Rally has raised over $8.164 million for cancer research, making the rally the largest independent fundraiser for the Cancer Council nationally.     The rally is a reward for all the fundraising the dedicated participants do to put into research for prevention and ultimately to help find a cure for cancer, and it’s a chance to meet like-minded people and see our vast and beautiful country in a totally unique way. To qualify to be in Shitbox Rally, supporters must have raised a minimum of $4,000. 2017 marks the eighth Shitbox Rally. Previous rally routes include 2016 Mackay to Hobart across Bass Strait, 2015 Canberra to Townsville via the Birdsville Track, 2014 Perth to Darwin via the Gibb River Road, 2013 Adelaide to Fremantle via Uluru, 2012 Melbourne to Cairns via Innamincka, 2011 Brisbane to Darwin via the Savannah Way and 2010 Sydney to Alice Springs via the Oodnadatta Track. For more details please visit www.shitboxrally.com.au. Overwhelmed by the tremendous success in its first international destination in New Zealand, Shitbox Rally NZ is returning in February 2017. To register for 2017 Shitbox Rally New Zealand, or to find out more information, visit www.shitboxrally.co.nz. An additional $2.01 million has also been raised for Cancer Council Australia over the past three years of Mystery Box Rally, a similar concept also created by James Freeman. Known as Shitbox Rally’s mad baby brother, Mystery Box is, as the name suggests, a mysterious adventure in mystery cars with a shorter distance and less days travelling. Unlike Shitbox Rally, each location is a mystery, adding to the excitement and adventure of the drive. For more information please visit www.mystery-box.com.au.  MEDIA CONTACT Holysmoke!

It’s becoming a bit of a RedBalloon Christmas tradition. “RedBalloon is all about creating moments and that’s something we definitely achieved today. We hope that each and every participant had fun and relished the opportunity to tick skydiving off their bucket list, and leaves today with another great Christmas memory.” “RedBalloon is one of our official partners and has supported the charity for a number of years, including hosting a number of Camp Quality families across a variety of RedBalloon experiences earlier this year,” Camp Quality Regional Manager - ACT/Illawarra Sonia Cameron said. “We loved being a part of this very special Guinness World Records event and it was great to see the smiles on the faces of our Camp Quality families.” RedBalloon gifts and vouchers will be available throughout the whole festive season, meaning last minute shoppers can purchase unique and meaningful presents right up to Christmas morning.

Karaoke Machines to be Discontinued on January 10, 2017 2016-12-13T18:48:42Z karaoke-machines-to-be-discontinued-on-january-10-2017 In an ongoing effort to streamline and improve business, Awesome Party Hire, better known as the top hire company for jumping castles, announced that it will be discontinuing the hiring out of karaoke machines as of January 10, 2017. Event organisers have used these electrical machines for the past 2 years, saving them money as opposed to actually buying one. Melbourne party-goers also claim that karaokes bring about epic level of fun during parties, where each guest gets a chance to shine in his or her own way. Awesome Party Hire recognizes that finding alternatives may be challenging and is therefore providing customers with additional information and resources on the company website at www.awesomepartyhire.com.au When asked about the reasons behind the decision to end the product, Sam Balcombe, General Manager of Awesome Party Hire said, "Although karaoke machines promote a variety of party fun, it is being discontinued because of the high incidence of manhandling the machine thus costing damage and costly repairs." Awesome Party Hire have also expressed that they will focus more of their resources to satisfy hire demand for inflatables rather than repair of electrical party equipment. They believe this will be a win-win for both their customers and the company itself.

THE FLOAT SPACE BRISBANE NOW OPEN IN WEST END: EVERYONE DESERVES STRESS RELIEF! 2016-12-09T10:26:41Z the-float-space-brisbane-now-open-in-west-end-everyone-deserves-stress-relief After successfully facilitating over 10,000 floats since opening of The Float Space in Maroochydore in 2015 on the Sunshine Coast, The Float Space has now launched their highly anticipated new Float and Cryotherapy Centre, in Brisbane West End.  The Float space offers a unique and top of the line experience in a segment that is steadily gaining, each of their centre boasting 3 of the world’s most luxurious, largest and most advanced float pods on the market, to give you the optimum float experience.  The new Brisbane location further offers Far Infrared Sauna as well as Whole Body Cryotherapy to maximise the float benefits, and help to relieve stress, tension, anxiety and pain, detox, improve skin health, as well as speed up recovery after exercise and injury.  The Float Space is a hydro-therapy floating spa that features light and sound controlled pods containing 500 litres of water with over 600 kgs of Epsom salt, creating a relaxing and reenergising experience that renews the body, refreshes the mind, and revives the senses. During a float the effects of gravity on the central nervous system are suspended, allowing floaters to lose awareness of where the body ends and the water begins, giving you a chance to truly unplug from the world. Resting in this unique, controlled environment improves the overall functions of the brain and central nervous system, which helps boost immunity, balance sleep and even reduce blood pressure by putting the user in a mediative state where there is no gravity and no outside distractions. The effects of floating are so profound that one hour in one hour in the float tank is said to be equivalent to 8 hours of deep sleep. "Float therapy for me personally has healed me from chronic fatigue/adrenal fatigue and Lyme disease. I've also never felt more relaxed and energised than I do after I float," said Janina Hildebrand, Co-Founder of The Float Space. "Floating has had such a life changing impact for me that I decided to open may own centre to help make this therapy available to the community. Our mission is to provide others with a space that cultivates profound healing, relaxation and recovery in a way that simply can not be found anywhere else, while educating them on how floatation can make them less stressed, happier and healthier. That's the reason why we're here." With 2 float locations, one on the Sunshine Coast and its newest in Brisbane, The Float Space is placing itself at the forefront of Australia's floatation industry. So if you are looking for a stress-free getaway and a way to enhance your mental and physical health and performance to reach your absolute best, The Float Space is the perfect place to go.  For more information visit www.thefloatspace.com.au.

Taking place in Wollongong, NSW on Saturday 17 December, RedBalloon is attempting to set a new Guinness World Record for ‘the most tandem parachute jumps in eight hours’ and is calling for eager daredevils who want to cross skydiving off their bucket list and achieve a world record to boot. These record breaking attempts are becoming somewhat of a habit for the gift retailer following last year’s record smash for ‘world’s largest surf lesson’ which saw 320 people congregate on iconic Bondi Beach dressed in Santa outfits. The number of jumps required to set the new record is 94, however RedBalloon has set an ambitious target of 150 jumps within the given time period. The event is completely free for the lucky 150 participants who make the list. In partnership with children’s cancer charity, Camp Quality, participants will be encouraged to donate on the day, and RedBalloon will be donating $10 per skydive to the charity alongside running a competition for celebrity guests in attendance, which will see a bonus $1,000 donated to the charity every time the RedBalloon target is landed on.  “We’re very excited about this record attempt. RedBalloon has always been known for pushing the boundaries and testing our limits, and we’re confident that we’ll be able to be the new Guinness World Records title holders for this skydiving experience,” RedBalloon CEO Nick Baker said. “We’re really looking forward to seeing the public get involved and tick skydiving off their bucket list whilst creating some great new memories in the lead up to Christmas. Participants can register for this experience free of charge through the RedBalloon website.” If you’re interested in participating in this unique Guinness World Record attempt, visit the RedBalloon website to register: https://www.redballoon.com.au/christmas/break-a-world-record-skydive.

Mr Farmer named the small strip of pristine coast after Australia’s 26th Governor General Sir Peter Cosgrove, who like Mr Farmer was taken with the area’s spectacular beauty on a visit to commemorate the centenary of the Sydney-Emden naval battle in 2014.   Mr Farmer and Professor Short assessed a raft of independent and scientific criteria to describe Cossies “as near to perfect as a beach can be”. It also happens to be Australia’s most remote beach.   The Cocos Keeling Islands are made up of two atolls and 27 coral islands, of which only two are populated. Of these, West Island and Home Island, are inhabited with a population around 600. You can reach the destination via a four-and-a-half-hour flight from Perth.   Visitors to the Cocos Keeling Islands can participate in a wide range of activities including kite surfing, snorkeling, scuba diving, surfing, fishing and birdwatching. Or, of course, just relaxing on Australia’s best beach.   “We have so much to offer and many people don’t know that we exist or that we are even part of Australia. Now the secret’s out, we’re looking forward to sharing paradise with new visitors,” Mr Soderlund said.     ENDS           FOR MORE INFORMATION, CONTACT: Danielle Veldre Gate 7 M: +61 408 972 997 E: danielle@gate7.com.au     ABOUT COCOS KEELING ISLANDS Offering spectacular snorkeling, world-class diving, excellent fishing and the adrenalin-rush of kitesurfing, the Cocos Keeling Islands are also a deeply tranquil holiday location.
