Points are not transferrable to other members.
3.4. Redeeming points
Members can redeem points for discounts only at the reception desk at the time of payment, providing the accommodation was booked directly through Aminess (www.aminess.com, www.aminess-campistes.com and the Aminess Reservation Centre). It is not possible to redeem points in advance for a discount at the time of booking. Points may be redeemed only at the reception desk at the time of payment.
The following is valid for points redemption:
- for every 25 points collected, an AMI+Card member earns a €1 discount
- for every 20 points collected, an AMI+Premium member earns a €1 discount
You are entitled to a discount on your accommodation unit invoice by redeeming sets of 25 points for AMI+Card members and sets of 20 points for AMI+Premium members. Example: An AMI+Card member earns a discount for collecting 49 points, but can use only 25 points (equals €1 off).
Members collect points for services stated in Article 2 (Programme purpose) of these Terms and Conditions, and can redeem them (in the form of a discount) only for accommodation. It is not possible to receive 100% off accommodation; the maximum discount is 95% off the ACCOMMODATION amount on the invoice. You collect points for the remaining 5% of the amount.
Example 1: The invoice includes only accommodation services for an AMI+Card membership level with 1000 collected points. A maximum of 950 points can be redeemed for accommodation on an existing invoice (equivalent of €38). The remaining 50 points will be credited to the member’s account.
Example 2: The invoice includes both accommodation and additional services During the last stay, the guest collected 2500 points (= €100 which the member can use for the current stay). The amount on the invoice for the current stay is €100, of which €90 is accommodation and €10 is wellness/F&B services. The guest decides to redeem all points, but according to the Terms and Conditions, it is possible to use points for discounts up to 95% of the accommodation total (€85.50, i.e. 2125 points). The remaining 375 points from previously collected points + 5% accommodation amount from the current stay, which amounts to 4 points + 10 wellness/F&B points are credited to the member’s account. Now the member has 389 points which he/she can redeem during the next stay.
