ATLANTIC CLASSIC CARD
••• Membership / conditions of participation
Membership is free of charge. Not contributions/fees are charged in any form.
Participation starts with possession of the ATLANTIC CLASSIC CARD and confirmation by means of your signature that you accept the conditions of membership.
The ATLANTIC CLASSIC CARD (hereinafter referred to as “card”) remains in the possession of ATLANTIC HOTELS and cannot be used as a credit card.
The card is not transferable and must always be presented when checking in.
Companies or legal persons cannot become members. Only single, natural persons who are older than 18 years of age are eligible for participation. There is no legal claim for admission to participation. ATLANTIC HOTELS can refuse participation in the ATLANTIC CLASSIC CARD programme without having to provide reasons.
Address changes are to be provided to ATLANTIC HOTELS (hereinafter referred to as AH) at the telephone numbers 0421 333 00 553 or by mail: firstname.lastname@example.org without delay.
In the event of theft or loss of the card, please also contact AH to receive a substitute card. This card has a new membership number. All points are transferred from the old membership account to the new one.
The member is responsible for ensuring the card is used in accordance with the company travel guidelines.
The card’s benefits are only accessible for the card owner and are not transferable.
Private utilisation of points that are collected during the business stay is subject to taxation in accordance with the respective tax laws. The member him/herself is responsible for correct payment.
The participant can terminate the membership relationship at any time in writing, without complying with a period of notice. Termination by AH is only possible by complying with a termination period of 2 weeks, to the extent that termination does not ensue for important cause. Termination without notice by AH as well as a subsequent exclusion from future participation can also ensue for cause. An important reason would be present in particular in the event of a serious infringement of the participant regarding the conditions of participation, in the event of essential false declarations, harassing or damaging behaviour toward AH or employees of AH or other guests of AH. In the event of due termination by the participant or AH, the collected points retain their validity for a period of 6 months after receipt of the termination, to the extent that no prior expiry occurs as a result of time expiration. In the event of justified immediate termination by AH, the points expire upon receipt of the termination declaration by the participant.
AH reserves the right to discontinue the ATLANTIC CLASSIC CARD programme as such at any time or replace it by another programme (e.g. the benefits that are to be granted, the awarding of points or the foundation for points) or to duly terminate membership. Also with regard to these terminations, the regulations of the previously mentioned paragraph shall apply accordingly. Changes or amendments regarding the conditions of participation are announced by information that is provided in text form. If a participant continues to use his/her ATLANTIC CLASSIC CARD or does not lodge an objection within one month after announcement, these changes are considered authorised. If a participant raises an objection to the programme change, his/her membership can be terminated in accordance with the conditions required for due termination.
••• Collecting points
Points are awarded for overnight stays and additional turnover. Additional turnover consists exclusively of hotel-own performances such as, e.g. restaurant dining, minibar, PAY TV, kiosk items.
Points are awarded for almost all room rates. Group rates, event and expedient rates are expressly excluded from this.
Points are only awarded for the room occupied by the member, even if the member pays for numerous rooms.
Points are awarded at check-out (departure). A subsequent awarding of points is only possible when presenting the hotel invoice and as of the start of participation in the ATLANTIC-CLASSIC-CARD programme. If the stay is more than six months old, it is no longer possible to credit points.
Points are not awarded when payment is made with a gift voucher. Points are also not awarded for services that are not provided by the hotel.
Points are only credited to the member, regardless of who pays the invoice!
The collected points cannot be transferred to another account. Numerous members cannot add up their points.
If no points are collected within 36 months after the last event, all points gathered to date will expire.
You will be informed regarding the current status of the points account at the latest quarterly or when arriving at an ATLANTIC HOTEL for your next stay. If no complaints are received by AH within 2 weeks after receipt of the respective current point total, the points shall be deemed to have been accepted. ATLANTIC CONGRESS HOTEL ESSEN is currently not participating in the programme and as such, unfortunately, no points can be collected.
••• Redeeming points
If the card owner decides to redeem the points for a prize, the points account is debited accordingly by the relevant number of points. Should the member desire this, the prize is issued in the form of a gift voucher / admission ticket and sent per post. Alternatively, there also is the option of depositing it at the hotel reception for the next stay.
Redeeming the prize in connection with an overnight stay must be reserved in advance (by telephone, fax or email) and explicit attention must be drawn to this during reservation. Information regarding redemption of the prize must be provided to the redeeming hotel/restaurant at least 7 working days/ 1 week prior to utilisation of the prize. The prizes’ availability can vary, depending on the date, season and destination. As the case may be, individual prizes are possibly also not available at certain times. Prizes cannot be combined with certain services at reduced tariffs.
Free overnight stays as well as all other prizes (the exception is prizes for third-party services such as, e.g. admission tickets) can currently be redeemed at the following hotels: ATLANTIC HOTEL AIRPORT, Kiel, Lübeck, VEGESACK, UNIVERSUM, GALOPPRENNBAHN and SAIL CITY as well as ATLANTIC Grand Hotel Bremen.
Prizes can ordered directly at www.atlantic-hotels.de/card or at the telephone number 0421 333 00 549, or by mail at email@example.com . All gift certificate prizes are valid for 36 months after issue. Validity cannot be extended.
