Our client's team of Fly-in Fly-out (FIFO) workers encountered difficulties in securing suitable accommodation while traveling to remote regional sites.

While standard hotel accommodation sufficed for the majority of travellers, last-minute shift changes presented a significant challenge in terms of both availability and cost.

Our Approach

To address this challenge, we conducted a thorough analysis of our client's project and permanent site locations. By examining various accommodation options, we identified the need for a more sustainable solution to ensure consistent access to quality accommodation.


Our proposed solution involved securing a rental property, thereby mitigating the issues of availability and cost associated with last-minute shift changes.

By renting a centrally located 3-bedroom property in Victoria for $550 per week, we successfully reduced the average nightly rate from $220 to below $80.

With a total expenditure of $57,200 for 260 nights in standard accommodation, the rental property provided significant savings, totalling $28,000.

After factoring in the cost of furnishing the property and employing a weekly cleaning service, our client still realised savings exceeding $15,000 for the year.
