You can now pay for your holiday with exercise

Would you exercise on holiday for free accomodation?

Your love of travel and fitness could be about to score you a free trip.

Aussie holiday rental site Stayz has launched a new way for travellers to pay for their holiday home - through the steps they take.

It’s called StayzFit and it's simple - the more you walk, the cheaper your holiday is. 

Stayz is trialing the system at several holiday homes around the country to help Australian travellers keep active while on holiday,

Travellers book a stay between April 10-24 as normal on the Stayz website, with 13 properties to choose from.

Upon arrival, guests receive two step trackers that calculate their total step count each day.

The stay is then refunded on a sliding scale. The step count required for two guests staying one-night, two-days is:

30,000 - 10% discount

50,000 - 20% discount

60,000 - 30% discount

70,000 - 40% discount

80,000 - 50% discount

90,000 - 60% discount

100,000 - 80% discount

120,000 - 100% discount

So there you have it, accept the challenge and you could just get a free Easter trip.

And all that exercise is a bonus!
