Points

  • Members of Club Gothia Towers receive points on overnight visits and restaurant visits to Gothia Towers’ public restaurants, parking, films, spa entry, etc. provided that consumption takes place in connection with an overnight stay at Gothia Towers/Upper House and that costs are charged to the hotel room bill. Costs that are invoiced do not earn points.
  • The membership number must have been stated at the time of booking and when checking in to the hotel. Points are awarded when the member has stayed in person.
  • Points are not awarded for bookings made by third parties, e.g. online travel agencies, coach companies or similar.
  • Group and special prices do not earn points. Gothia Towers AB is free to decide what earns points.
  • Points for restaurant visits will be awarded up to a maximum total of SEK 5,000 per twenty-four hour period, and will only be awarded in connection with an overnight stay at the hotel. Restaurant bills must be charged to the hotel room bill in order for points to be awarded. Costs that are invoiced do not earn points.
  • Points are not awarded for hire of premises, hire of equipment or meals in connection with conferences.
  • The only occasion when the member can earn points for additional rooms to the room in which the member personally stays is when members of the member’s immediate family stay in more than one room on a single occasion.
  • Goods and services from external parties that are only or partly provided by Gothia Towers do not earn points, such as show/event tickets, etc.
  • Points cannot be redeemed for cash.
  • Points are personal, and cannot be transferred to another club member.
  • Points are valid for two years from the date when they are earned. Unused points then expire automatically and thereby become unusable. When points are redeemed, the oldest points will always be used first.
  • Gothia Towers AB reserves the right to exclude the opportunity to collect points and take advantage of member benefits in connection with special offers, special prices via third party channels and certain agreements with companies, partners and organisations.
  • Points that for various reasons are not registered in the usual way can subsequently be registered within six months of completing a hotel stay. However, in order for this to be possible the guest must have been a member of Club Gothia Towers at the time of the occasion in question. Subsequent registration of points can be arranged via club@gothiatowers.com. Valid documentation, e.g. the hotel bill, must be attached as documentation in order for subsequent registration to take place.
  • Points are not awarded when claiming a free night. This applies regardless of whether the free night is paid for in part with cash. Nor does payment with redeemed vouchers, such as restaurant vouchers, bring entitlement to earn points. When a free night is claimed, Gothia Towers AB reserves the right to exclude the opportunity to use member benefits.
  • Members who are also members of another loyalty programme only earn points in one programme. Members choose which programme to earn points in.

Using points and other club benefits

  • Points can be used to claim free nights or other offers from Gothia Towers AB according to the currently applicable redemption table shown at gothiatowers.com/club. Free nights can be booked when logged in at gothiatowers.com or via the booking team.
  • The availability of free nights at Gothia Towers and Upper House is dependent on free capacity at the time of booking.
  • Issued vouchers are a document of value that can be used as part or full payment. Repayment in cash is not possible. Vouchers must be surrendered at the time when the member wishes to use them. The validity period of the voucher is stated on the voucher. Lost vouchers will not be replaced.
  • Two or more members cannot combine their points to reach the threshold for redeeming points unless this is specifically stated in an offer. Points that are registered to a member’s profile cannot be transferred to another member profile.
  • Cancellation of free nights or other redemption of points must take place within the stipulated time. Specific rules apply to whether, and if so how many, points can be reapplied to the member’s account.
  • Member benefits and the requirements in order to qualify for the different levels are stated in the currently applicable information about membership levels at gothiatowers.com/club.

Disputes

  • In the event of any dispute relating to the contents of these terms and conditions in whole or in part, Swedish law shall apply and the dispute shall be resolved in a Swedish court of law. Gothia Towers AB is not responsible for events due to legal enactment, the actions of an authority, emergencies, strikes, blockades, boycotts, lockouts or other similar circumstances.
