The Swiss Youth Hostels loyalty bonus programme for hunters and gatherers

As a junior, adult, senior or family member of the Swiss Youth Hostels, from today you can share in our loyalty bonus programme in addition to the membership benefits. For each overnight stay, you collect one loyalty bonus point and get a discount of 50% on the 10th overnight stay. Start collecting and reap the benefits!

This is how it works:

  1. Become a new member or extend your existing membership directly online on our web page http://www.youthhostel.ch/de/mitglieder, by e-mail to contact@youthhostel.ch, by calling +41 44 360 14 14 or locally in one of our Swiss youth hostels.
  2. You will receive your new hostel card with the collector’s card on the back. You can collect your loyalty bonus points in the boxes shown.
  3. Book your accommodation (in the usual way) in a Swiss youth hostel participating in the loyalty bonus programme, online at youthhostel.ch, by e-mail or by phone.
  4. Present your hostel card at the youth hostel reception when you check in. One loyalty bonus point will be awarded for each overnight stay on your personal Hostel Card. Points cannot be transferred to other cards.
  5. Stick the loyalty bonus points in the boxes shown on the back of your hostel card.
  6. Have you been busily collecting and now have 9 loyalty bonus points? Congratulations! When booking your accommodation for the 10th overnight stay, you will receive a 50% discount (for one person on the room or bed price including breakfast buffet) in one of our Swiss youth hostels participating in the loyalty bonus programme.
  7. The 50% discount on the 10th overnight stay will only be granted on presentation of your valid hostel card with the 9 loyalty bonus points collected in the current membership year. The hostel card is to be presented in the youth hostel in which you intend to claim the discount for the 10th overnight stay. To do so, show the full collector’s card when checking in. You will receive the discount on the spot.
  8. When you claim the discount for the 10th overnight stay, your hostel card will be marked with a cancellation stamp at the time of checking in.
  9. The hostel card continues to serve as a membership document for further stays in Swiss youth hostels or youth hostels belonging to the international association.

Terms and conditions of the loyalty bonus programme

New members of the Swiss Youth Hostels and existing members extending their membership can now share in a loyalty bonus programme in addition to the membership benefits.

Junior, adult, senior and family members with a valid hostel card can collect loyalty bonus points. On arrival at a Swiss youth hostel, members receive 1 loyalty bonus point per overnight stay in the participating Swiss youth hostels. The loyalty bonus points are not transferable. On the family log card, you earn one point per night irrespective of the number of people staying overnight.

After the 9th overnight stay and the 9th loyalty bonus point, the member is entitled to a 50% discount on the 10th overnight stay. The discount applies for one person (room or bed price including breakfast buffet) and may be claimed for a new stay. This discount cannot be combined with other offers, promotions, vouchers and reductions and may only be claimed with a valid hostel card in the current membership year.

The reservation process remains unchanged. Bookings can continue to be made in the desired youth hostels, online at youthhostel.ch, by e-mail or by phone.

In order to obtain the discount, the valid hostel card with the collected loyalty bonus points must be presented at the youth hostel concerned when checking in for the 10th overnight stay.

Restrictions:

Points may be collected at Engelberg Youth Hostel but no discounts can be claimed there. The following hostels are not participating in this programme: Bellinzona, Fiesch, Gersau, Lugano-Savosa.

Holders of group membership are excluded from this programme.
