Which sites let me book Airlie Beach accommodation with free cancellation?

Whether you need to cancel because of unforeseen events, or they're calling for a stormy week on the coast, you can book refundable accommodation for a less-risky stay. Some sites only offer free cancellation on select hotels or at a slightly higher rate, so it's best to check the terms on your booking before confirming your stay. Most sites, like Wotif or Expedia, will clearly state whether a stay is non-refundable.

Each site also has different policies, so it's best to check at the time of booking how far in advance you have to cancel your stay.
