6. EARNING LAGUNA CLUBPOINTS
6.1. Rules for earning Laguna Club points.
If a Member has booked any Facilities through the Laguna Poreč web site (on line booking or off line booking), call center (phone & fax) or just directly at the reception of a Facility, the Member is eligible to gain Club points. In case a Member comes to Laguna Poreč through agencies or by booking through any web site portal from on line travel agencies, Member is not entitled to gain Club points from their stay at a Facility. They can only become Members and gain Club points from the moment of enrollment, but they can only gain club points from their overnight stay if they come next time booking directly at Laguna Poreč web site, call center or at the reception of a Facility.
Members earn Club points as follows: 1 eligible euro spent = 1 Club point.
Club points calculation is based on the total amount of eligible expenses paid. The invoice can be paid by the Member or by any other person at the reception of the facility before leaving it. Thus, if the Member issues an order to block the check used to pay stay at the Facility, or if the bank account does not have sufficient funds to cover the check, or if the Member disputes payment made by a bank or credit card, Club points are not granted for the transaction in question and if granted, the Club Points will be debited from the Member.
Regardless of which is the person that is paying the invoice, every Member can only gain points according to its own eligible expenses considered in the program.
Eligible expenses include:
Hotel or apartment overnight stays expenses for the Member under the condition that the room is checked-in under the Member's name.
Services that will be considered on top of the hotel stay itself are: the meals that are included in the overnight stays, extra beds & VAT. In the case of campings the only expense that will be considered as overnight stays is the one related to the cost of accommodation per person. In the case of apartments, the total expenses of the overnight stays will be equally distributed among all clients (guests) who have checked in at the apartment and only the members who posses the Laguna Club card will be entitled to earn their corresponding points.
Non-eligible expenses are non-board services such as: bar expenses, mini-bar, room service, internet fee, cleaning, telephone, parking fee, residence tax, tips, fees for services and other applicable fees, in-store purchases, spa, products and services, hair dresser or barber, beauty parlor, sports and golf green fees. In case of campings the non eligible expenses are cost of pitch, car, motorcycle, electricity, boat, trailer, dogs, overnights paid to agencies for caravans or mobile homes, etc. In the case of campings, Members paying a flat rate (summer lump sum) are not allowed to earn Club points or redeemed them in their bills.
Points are only earned by eligible expenses that are effectively paid, after the Member redeem the points gained in his or her previous stays.
Points will be counted since the first night of the current stay of the Member at any Facility. Therefore, any previous overnights at Laguna Poreč can not be considered for this program. Only a whole number of Club points can be granted. If the conversion results in a number of Club points with a decimal value, the number of Club points credited to the Member's account will be only the whole number excluding the decimals.
Just by enrolling on the program every member will gain 10 Club points.
6.2. Points earned with Club card can be combined with other membership cards like CCI, INF or any other National Autoclub card, but only one of this membership cards can be used at one time for paying the bills.
Therefore Members may accumulate Club points when using other membership cards for achieving discounts.
Engagements and rules to be respected a.- A client must enroll on the program at least 2 days before departure, if not Laguna Poreč does not ensure accumulation of Club points from current stay. b.-A member must present his/her Club card at check-in time at the reception in order to accumulate Club points and to redeemed Club points already accumulated from previous stays, otherwise Laguna Poreč does not ensure accumulation of points from current stay or redemption of points from previous stays c.-The Member must not lend his or her Club card to any third-party.

6.3. Validity of Club points
Club points are valid for a period of 5 years following the date on which they were recorded. Validity is extended for 5 years each time the Member generates a credit transaction in any of our facilities on his or her account. If the Member does not generate any transactions during the period of 5 years, all previously-acquired Club points on his or her account may be lost without notice and without the possibility of restoring or converting them.
7. PROGRAM BENEFITS & CONVERTION OF CLUB POINTS
Every member that enrolls on the Program automatically subscribes to receive our Newsletter at thier email address with the latest news, special offers and immediate access to availability of booking in our facilities.
Club points will be converted into discounts to be used on the next time that the Member stays in any of the Facilities. The next time will be counted at least as 7 days after the Member left our Facilities and paid his/her overnight stays, thus earning the corresponding Club points for those overnights. Therefore, if a member comes to the Facilities (booking directly at Laguna Poreč web site, call center or at the Facility reception) and earns Club points due to his/her overnights stays, these Club points earned can be only redeemed if the Member comes again to Laguna Poreč and stays in any of our Facility for at least 7 days after his first stay.
The Club points earned can be converted into euro using the following conversion rate: 25 Club points gained = 1,00 euro.
The amount in euro as a resultant of the conversion rate can be discounted from the total bill of next stay of the Member at any Facility. Therefore, on the next stay the Member must present his/her Club card at the moment of check in to the facility in order to request the usage of the points that he or she has gained from previous stays. Every time the Club points are being used (converted into euros to pay the bill) they will be also eliminated from the current account form the Member.
