6.1. The Nordic Choice Club has four levels: BLUE, SILVER, GOLD and PLATINUM. The membership level is determined by the number of qualifying nights a member spends at Nordic Choice Hotels in the Nordic and Baltic countries or how many points the member collects during the course the member’s member period.
6.2. A membership period last for 12 months from the month that members registered their membership.
6.3. One qualifying night is equivalent to one overnight stay at Nordic Choice Hotels for which bonus points are awarded.
6.4. Qualifying nights are not registered for:
Bonus rooms (overnight stays paid for using bonus points)
”Complimentary” rooms (free stays)
Overnight stays at Choice hotels outside the Nordics and Baltic region
Hotel stays at Nordic Choice Hotels booked via online travel agencies (Online Travel Agency, see Section 4.7)
On booked but not used nights, i.e. no-show
6.5. Overnight stays with discounted special rates provide 0.5 qualifying nights.
6.6. Qualification for a higher level occurs in accordance with the following regulations:
SILVER – 5 qualifying nights or 15,000 points during the 12-month member period
GOLD – 30 qualifying nights or 50,000 points during the 12-month member period
PLATINUM – 60 qualifying nights or 100,000 points during the 12-month member period
LIFETIME GOLD - 500,000 points since membership began
LIFETIME PLATINUM - 1,000,000 points since membership began
6.7. In the course of a member period, members may qualify for SILVER, GOLD or PLATINUM. There are no qualification requirements for BLUE. Members who are promoted to a higher level will receive this level straight away during the current period and members retain this level for the next member period (the subsequent 12 months). The calculation of the qualifying nights and bonus points shall revert to zero at the end of the member period. This will not affect the redeemable bonus points.
6.8. The qualification for LIFETIME membership is calculated based on the entire membership time, not per member period. If members reach a LIFETIME, members will retain this as long as they do not terminate their membership. Members who have reached LIFETIME GOLD still have the opportunity to advance to PLATINUM during a member period, or reach the LIFETIME PLATINUM in the future according to the rules outlined above.
