Referral policy

To earn credit, send a referral link to your friends. When a friend uses that link to join mates bnb they’ll get credit that will automatically apply towards their first reservation with mates bnb. The credit will show up automatically on the checkout page of any qualified reservation booked worth $90 AUD or more, excluding fees and taxes.

When your friend completes their first qualifying reservation, you'll earn a $5 AUD credit to use for your own mates bnb future trips. You'll get the credit after your friend checks out, and it will show up automatically on the checkout.
For each person you refer, there are two opportunities to earn travel credit. You earn credit when your friend completes a qualified reservation as a guest and also if they complete a qualifying reservation as a host. The amount you earn is different depending on whether you refer hosts or guests.

A trip must have a value of $90 AUD or more, excluding fees and any taxes, to count as a qualified  reservation. These amounts may vary during promotional periods. If you accumulate travel credits, your available travel credits automatically appear on the checkout page and once used, they will deduct from your dashboard account. If the travel credits aren't automatically added, it means the reservation wasn’t worth $90 AUD or more but once the referral books a trip worth $90 AUD or more, you account will be credited. 

Credits can't apply to a trip that has already been paid for, but they will be applied to your next qualified reservation. You can earn up to $1,000 AUD total in travel credit and you have 6 months to claim from the date issued. 

Getting credits is easy:

  • Sign Up or Login
  • Invite your friends via email and/or share with your referral link
  • Earn credits when they travel or host
