NZ's hostel network is very special. We think it's unequalled anywhere. It's special because it's developed to meet the requirements of a special sort of traveller. As it's developed it has become more sophisticated and now has an appeal for casual users who enjoy the informal and unpretentious atmosphere. But the network still exists primarily to cater for the confirmed traveller and the BBH Club Card is intended to identify these traditional users as FREQUENT SLEEPERS.
BBH Club Cards cost $35 and are valid for 1 year from purchase.
The BBH Club Card introduces you to special deals and discounts designed to reduce some of the costs of travelling.
Please note: The BBH Deals and Discounts listed on this website are provided by independent operators. Check their validity dates when booking online.
BBH Club Cards can only be purchased from the BBH website here.
You can purchase BBH Club Cards for yourself and/or for other people...
The 10% BBH Club Card discount is calculated as 10% of the average bed price (double beds count as 2 beds) of the booking. This discount will be applied for yourself if you have an in-date BBH Club Card and any Additional Travellers on your profile with an in-date BBH Club Card.
When you purchase Club Cards for other people, they are automatically added as Additional Travellers on your profile. However, if you are booking for people who bought their Club Cards separately, simply add them with their BBH Club Card number (and security code) as Additional Travellers on your profile under "My Personal Details" and discount will be applied to bookings for them. This needs to be done before the Deposit is collected.
As the BBH website validates your Club Card(s) as part of your booking, you do not need to present any proof at the hostel.
When booking directly with hostels let them know you are BBH Club Card holders and on arrival you will need to show your Electronic BBH Club Card(s). Please see the section below on getting and presenting your Electronic BBH Club Card.
Discount is once again calculated per person and each person showing a valid Electronic BBH Club Card will qualify for 10% off their accommodation cost.
You will NOT qualify for any BBH Club Card discount if you book hostels through 3rd party agents or websites - you must book directly with the hostel to qualify.
You do not need to create an Electronic BBH Club Card when booking through the BBH website, you will only need to create it if you are booking directly with hostels.
The Electronic BBH Club Card is emailed to you as a PDF attachment. You need to open this attachment on your phone when you check-in at the hostel as proof of your BBH membership. You may not have data coverage when you check-in, therefore, when you have the card emailed to you, please open the attachment when you receive the email. This will download it from your ISP and make it available on your phone when you check-in. You can also save the attachment to a folder on your phone if you find this easier to locate the Club Card in future.
