A dream vacation at a resort hotel in Bali is most certainly on many a bucket list. But how about living the dream for just AUS $0.08 a night?
This scenario played out for one lucky couple: grandparents Hilda and Ernie Ross from Malabar, Australia.
The couple were researching Bali hotels on WebJetÂ for their granddaughter’s October wedding when they discovered this glitch in the travel matrix: a week in the luxury Jayakarta Bali Hotel offered at a whopping AUS $0.56.
Suites at the resort normally go for AUS $200-a-night.
“When the man told me I said ‘that’s impossible – they have made a mistake’,” Hilda Ross told Australia’s News.com.au.
“The man said he was almost 100% sure that he could get it honoured – he was laughing and he didn’t want to stop talking because he was so excited.”
“Then I asked if breakfast was included and he laughed that much, like I had said something funny,” she quipped.
“We wouldn’t have been able to make it – we would have been the only ones missing at the wedding but everything just seemed to fall into place. It’s a dream you would never even think about.”
It is unclear whether the pricing error was on WebJet’s end or if the hotel somehow triggered the anomaly.
