The Aussie woman who took to Instagram to post a new code for a discounted hotel room in her hometown of Canberra is receiving a lot of love from the public after she received a message of thanks from Australian travel company VUori.
The woman, who has chosen to remain anonymous, posted on her Instagram account that VUORI was offering a discount code to Australian travellers who wanted to book a room in Canberra for a few days.
She explained that she was looking for a room to stay at for a couple of days in a room that was “the cheapest available” at the time.VUORIs discounted rooms have a maximum of 30 days to run and the codes have been sent out to over 3,000 people.
“I thought it was hilarious that I would get some kind of notification and then a tweet saying that the codes were out and I’d be in the loop and in the know.
It’s just really good to know that we can still make a bit of money out there and not feel like we’re just wasting money on hotel rooms,” the woman told ABC News.
She has since received hundreds of messages of support and congratulations from the community.
“It’s awesome to see people giving me support and encouragement,” she said.
“They’ve been incredibly kind and have really helped me out with the travel and everything else.”
She also received a “thank you” email from VUORS boss, Tim Clark.
“Thank you for making this possible for me and my family and friends to travel to the wonderful country of Australia and enjoy our time in the beautiful capital city of Canberra,” he wrote.
“We look forward to seeing you all soon and we are looking forward to continuing to share our experiences with you all.”
Ms Campbell said she had never experienced such support from the Australian community before.
“To have a local business that’s doing this to a young person is amazing and really just a really lovely thing,” she told ABC Radio Canberra.
“Hopefully this helps other people with the same issues we’ve had and I can see people in our position having a bit more of a voice.”
