You may earn points for stays in participating Leonardo Hotels beginning with the date of your enrolment in the Leonardo AdvantageCLUB. Points for reservations in the past can be retroactive rewarded up to 365 days after check-out with regards to the requested conditions and to the membership during the stay. A stay is defined as one night or consecutive nights at the same hotel, regardless of frequency of check-in/check-out. In case of a reservation of several rooms members only collects points for the first chosen room. Members have to identify theirselves as member with the booking process or during their stay to collect points for the done reservation. A stay is qualified when paying the reserved room rate to the hotel, which include most business and leisure rates. Points will be awarded for stays and room rates only booked through the Leonardo Hotels homepage, Leonardo Hotels central reservation offices or directly at the hotel.
A point is a unit value, counted in points, generated according to an established conversion schedule of monetary expenses by a member in a participating Leonardo Hotel. Every Euro (€) spent on your room reservation is worth one point. For different currencies than Euros, points are based on the defined exchange rates: 1 € = 1.40 CHF ( 1 CHF=0.71 points); 1 € = 1,35 $ (1 $=0.74 points).
Points may not be transferred to another member and do not have any cash value. Points remain valid for 3 years following the date on which they were recorded. If the member does not generate any transactions during a 365 day period, the points acquired for the last reservation booked will be lost without notice and without the possibility of restoring or converting them.
Any special points or welcome points credited on the member account during promotional activities will be considered as pending until the first qualifying stay booked at any participating hotel is checked-out.

Only a whole number of points can be granted. If the exchange rate application used for converting Euros into points results in a number of points with a decimal value, the number of points credited to the member's account will be rounded down to the nearest whole number if the decimal is below 5, and will be rounded up to the nearest whole number if the decimal value is equal to, or higher than, 5.
