3. Earning AdvantageCLUB Points
3.1 Conditions for AdvantageCLUB Points
You may earn AdvantageCLUB points for stays in participating hotels beginning with the date of your enrollment in the Leonardo AdvantageCLUB. Points may not be transferred to another member and do not have any cash value. Points can only be collected, if the member personally stayed at the hotel, the invoice was in the name of the guest and has been settled. Therefore, no points will be rewarded for stays of guests other than the member, regardless of who made the reservation and paid for it.
To qualify for earning points, Members may book directly at the hotel or via telephone, e-mail, or fax. Members have to identify themselves as AdvantageCLUB members during the booking process. Furthermore, travel agencies using a GDS connected to the Leonardo Hotels reservation center will also allow a member to collect points.
In order to collect points and enjoy AdvantageCLUB benefits during the stay, guests have to announce their AdvantageCLUB membership and their Member ID at check-in.
AdvantageCLUB points will be rewarded to the member’s personal account within 3 weeks after check-out. Points for past stays can be retroactively rewarded up to 365 days after check-out with regards to the requested conditions and to the membership during the stay.
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.
3.2 Participating Hotels
Hotels operating under the following hotel brands participate in the Leonardo AdvantageCLUB (with some exceptions as specified below): Leonardo Hotels, Leonardo Boutique Hotels, Leonardo Royal Hotels, Herods Hotels, U Hotels, NYX Hotels, and Star Inn Hotels in Austria.
All the hotels presented on the website www.leonardo-hotels.com participate in Leonardo AdvantageCLUB, with the following exceptions.
- SENTIDO Cypria Bay by Leonardo
- Leonardo Laura Beach & Splash Resort
- Leonardo Plaza Cypria Maris Beach Hotel & Spa
- Leonardo Crystal Cove Hotel and Spa by the Sea
- Leonardo Kolymbia Resort – Rhodes
If a hotel leaves the Leonardo Hotels network or ceases to be a participating hotel after a reservation has been made but before the actual stay, the member does not earn any points and benefits at the hotel. In addition, special offers relating to the Advantage Club membership are no longer valid after the date at which the hotel leaves the Leonardo Hotels network or ceases its participation in the Leonardo AdvantageCLUB, even if the reservation was made before that date.
3.3 Reservation sources and rates
All public rates qualify for the award of AdvantageCLUB points and benefits. The following room rates are excluded from this program: room rates for business or leisure group reservations, room rates for the crew, employees’ rates, tour operator rates, travel agents rates, and room rates for complimentary stays, unless decided otherwise. Points will be awarded for stays and qualifying room rates only booked through the Leonardo Hotels homepage, Leonardo Hotels central reservation offices, or directly at the hotel via telephone, e-mail, fax, or at the front desk.
3.4 Points calculation
A point is a unit value, 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 exchange rate at the time of check-out.
A stay is defined as one night or consecutive nights at the same hotel, regardless of the frequency of check-in/check-out. In the case of one reservation consisting of several rooms members only collect points for the first chosen room. In case of several reservations made in the name of the member for the same dates, points will be awarded only for the room the member personally stayed in.
Points can be collected for the booked room, but not for any additional services used at the hotel (minibar, parking, telephone, etc.) In addition, points will also be rewarded for breakfast, if the member originally booked the room rate including this meal plan. In case of breakfast is added to the initial reservation later, points are rewarded only for the room.
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.
Reservations paid by points are not eligible to further point collection.
3.5 Points validity
Points remain valid for 18 months following the last check-out date. If the member does not stay at any of the participating hotels with an eligible or redeemed reservation during this 18-month period, all points accumulated in a member account will be lost without notice and without the possibility of restoring or converting them.
3.6 Reservation cancellation and no-show
In case of a reservation cancellation or no-show, the member will not earn any points for the reservation, even if the late cancellation or no-show fees are paid.
If the member notices that points have not been properly credited to the member account after a minimum waiting period of 3 weeks, he or she may request that the balance is adjusted within a period of 365 days following a stay at a participating hotel (based on the check-out date). For this, the member has to contact the affected hotel and must prove details of the claim and submit a copy of the invoice from the hotel in question. In order for the member to be entitled to earn points, the invoice corresponding to the claim must imperatively be in (or include) the name of the Leonardo AdvantageCLUB member.
4. Redeem AdvantageCLUB Points
Whenever the number of points in the member's account reaches a certain level of points (as indicated by the balance shown on the account statement), the member may convert these points into free stays in participating Leonardo Hotels. AdvantageCLUB members cannot use their points to pay for any additional services used at the hotel, such as minibar, parking, or telephone. In addition, points cannot be used to pay for breakfast, if it was not booked as a part of the original reservation. Furthermore, points cannot be used for redeeming them for another person.
The level of points required for a certain stay is indicated in the reservation process following the “Redeem Points” button. Follow the reservation steps within the “Redeem Points” part and check how many points are required for your preferred stay. To redeem points is only possible online on the Leonardo Hotels homepage www.leonardo-hotels.com with reservations in advance. Payment with points is not possible for reservations already booked at a normal price.
The required amount of points for a reservation is based on a defined point exchange ratio. Point values, as well as the defined point exchange rations for any hotel or destination, may change at any time. Points have no value until presented for redemption by the member.
Redeeming points is not possible in countries where prohibited by law.
4.2 Rewarded Rooms
Except for the meal plan Bed & Breakfast, if selected during the booking process, rewarded rooms do not include food and beverages, gratuities, or incidentals, other than the member benefits, mentioned in the “AdvantageCLUB” section of the Leonardo Hotels website www.leonardo-hotels.com. Any additional charges are to be paid directly to the hotel prior to check-out. Transportation costs to and from the hotel are not included.
4.3 Rewarded reservation cancellation
