Additionally, the Blu Emu car park does allow for one hour free parking for drivers. There is a free shuttle from terminals 2 and 3 for passengers to access this. Hope that helps! Stephanie

Hi Jhamela, Thanks for your question. The provisions of s 5B of the Privacy Act dealing with its application to acts and practices outside Australia do not apply to the credit reporting provisions. Therefore Australian credit providers can check New Zealand credit reports, however they may choose not to. While Veda operates in both Australia and New Zealand, Veda Advantage doesn't include information about foreign loans in their reports. I hope this has helped, Stephanie

Hi Elizabeth, Thanks for your question. Most of the time Tigerair has sales or deals that don't require a promo code. At the moment there are no deals fares for your leg, however you can still fly on those dates from $308 return with Tiger. Unfortunately, as you are flying during peak season, it's likely there won't be any sales valid for your dates. If you were after something cheaper, you might like to change your flight dates. A good place to test different dates for different prices is I Want That Flight. I hope that helps, Stephanie

Hi Christine, Thanks for your question. For cruises close to your budget, Sydney New Year's Eve Cruises has a Ballroom New Year's Eve event. As the minimum age for this is 7, you're less likely to receive a young, 20-something crowd. FantaSea also has a Platinum NYE Fireworks Dinner Cruise which includes a cold buffet and a limit vessel capacity of 140. If you're willing to push your budget further, you might like to look into a Tall Ship Dinner Cruise, which includes a gourmet dinner and is a unique experience on the harbour. Unfortunately, if you are looking for a cruise on the lower end of your budget, your options are mainly limited to shorter, earlier cruises or BYO food and drink cruises such as those with Bass and Flinders and Fantasea. Depending on how you feel, they might be worth looking into. I hope that helps, Stephanie
