HOTEL BONUS CLUB

THE CLUB FOR BUSINESS TRAVELLERS 

Becoming a member, membership and the membership fee 
Anyone who is over the age of 18 years and has paid the Hotel Bonus Club membership fee of 25 euros / 12 months is accepted as a Hotel Bonus Club member. New member must also accept the PINS program terms which can be read at www.pins.fi. In order to start taking advantage of the club benefits, all you need to do is to present your valid Hotel Bonus Club card. The card is personal. Join the club at any of the club hotels and start receiving your benefits immediately. At the end of the membership period, you can opt to continue your membership by notifying a representative at any of the club hotel reception desks. The membership will terminate automatically if the annual membership fee is left unpaid. For more information about the membership, please contact the Restel Central Booking Office at +358 9 733 5421 or e-mail at hbc@restel.fi.

Hotel Bonus Club benefits
Hotel Bonus Club benefits are awarded for overnight stays at all Cumulus and Rantasipi hotels, Holiday Inn hotels in Finland, Hotel Seurahuone Helsinki and Hotel Atlas Kuopio when regular room rate or a pre-arranged corporate room rate is applied. On weekends, only one person per room receives the club benefits for overnight stays at a regular room rate. All prices, particularly those offered by travel agencies and other external parties, do not necessarily include Hotel Bonus Club benefits. We recommend that members make their bookings using the hotel chain's own channels (club hotels, Restel Central Booking Office or Hotelworld.fi) and make sure that the benefits are included in the price when making the booking. The club benefits are not valid for meeting packages or group travel rates or for all leisure packages. Leisure room rates earn the cardholder the Club Bonus benefit, but no other benefits are granted. The Hotel Bonus Club card cannot be used together with any other bonus card.
