Holiday Accommodation

Members can enter a ballot for the Hibernians own timeshare accomodation, make bookings at other friendly society holiday homes, and obtain discounted costs for accommodation at selected hotels and motels throughout New Zealand.

The Hibernians own timeshare accommodation at four resorts: Club Paihia, Taupo Ika Nui, Queenstown Mews and Fiji Palms.

Members are invited in January each year to enter a ballot for the timeshare of their choice, to be taken during the following calendar year. The cost of accommodation to successful applicants is based upon the annual maintenance charge as levied to the Hibernians by the timeshare resort.

Successful applicants may exchange the week drawn at the Society’s timeshare for another resort located either in New Zealand or globally, at an additional cost, through the use of a timeshare exchange company.
