This is the latest initiative from, New Zealand’s own last minute accommodation website for Auckland Hotels and Wellington Hotels in New Zealand

“We pride ourselves on being owned by Kiwis and dedicated to Kiwis, and what better way to demonstrate this than by supporting some of New Zealand’s best-loved charities,” says Patrick Dyzell, Director of

In a world-first for the travel industry, travellers can opt for 50% of their booking fee to go to a charity such as Plunket, Women’s Refuge, SPCA, City Mission or Koru Care.

“One of ShortRate’s points of difference is we have credible accommodation reviews posted on our website, and the idea with this initiative is that when you post a review, you can click a button to request that 50% of your booking fee goes to x, y or z charity,” explains Dyzell who has recnetly Also expanded to Provide Quality Accommodation at Christchurch Hotels

At a time when many charities are struggling financially, Dyzell says there has been tremendous enthusiasm from charities for the scheme.

“In the current economic climate, it’s hard for charities; they’re really struggling, so it’s great to be able to help them in whatever way we can.”

Dyzell says social responsibility is high on ShortRate’s agenda and it’s something consumers are increasingly demanding of businesses.

“Buying something in 2010 isn’t just about getting a good deal; it’s about doing good as well.” knows all about good deals as well as doing good, says Dyzell. For the past five years, they have helped Kiwis find discount accommodation at short notice.
