BBH Club Card - What's it All About?
Benefits |  Rules | Refund | FAQs

club card imageThere's plenty of adventure and new experience to be found in a New Zealand visit.

A BBH Club Card guarantees you fixed accommodation prices for a specified period to help keep those accommodation costs down.

The card has been popular for more than a decade. The original card is in wide circulation and remains valid, but a new generation card was introduced on 1 October 2014. The new-generation card features a 33% rebate on the purchase price in place of the pre-paid phone calls on the original card.
