Next time you want to cry about how "expensive" ASQ is...


Recommended Posts

So 4000 Aud for 1 person plus 100 a day if you want a balcony more for families. 120k baht plus for a hotel you get no choice over and unlike Thailand your not allowed to leave your room at ALL in the quarantine period.

Incredible - the hide of them

So lets look at this way

The cost is $3000 for the first person & $500 for every additional one (on that note ) a 7 mth old baby would be free in normal circumstances 

 

So the bug came along

All businesses panicked & cried like babies (even though their employees were in the same boat)

But some employees gained from the $750  Jobkeeper which was a little better then the low wages being paid that will end in March (unemployment ques to get longer )

 

So not forgetting these hotels put their hand up to offset the lack of monies coming in 

The sums $4000 / 14 = $285 p/n just for room since no doubt the Gov would be propping up all the other costs

Doesn't make it right to rip people off. I don't blame people for complaining, or "crying" as you put it.

Confusing, I assume this refers to quarantine hotels in Sydney Australia so why is it being quoted in US$?

 

Unless it's changed recently it's AUD3,000 for 14 days all published on many sites.

 

Yes it's strict and not surprising, there's been too many incidents where the hotel quar. rules have been broken.

 

Reading many reports here in Australia the general public seems to concur that it should be strict, there are way too many cases of arriving passengers testing positive 1 or 2 days after arrival.

From the article - "The $1,400 balcony fee was paid by Ms Govil in addition to the NSW Government's quarantine fee of $4,000."

Since when is AUD, US dollars? And it's 3800 minimum for one person without the extras quoted in the article and it's 15 nights as your night of arrival does not count and you can't leave until after midnight on the last day but how many will be doing that?

Somewhat agree but on the other hand, quarantine was free in Australia for months after the government advising people to return (costing more than AU$118.5 million tax dollars just in the first two and a half months).

 

People that didn't/couldn't return then are now paying the price. Price gouging should be cracked down on, but not sure it warrants tax payers money being thrown at it when there are more deserving and pressing needs. 

What so countries should give people free accommodation to travellers and residents? or should governments foot the bill for people who wish to travel during a pandemic?

How are they "ripping" people off? Some of these properties are 4 and 5 star hotels offering 15 nights accommodation and 3 meals and often 2 snacks a day room service plus 2 covid tests. So Australia that's about 280 a day. Tell me where you can get a hotel in any capital city anywhere in the world with 3 room service meals a day at that price..
