7. COLLECTION OF POINTS
Members collect for each stay the points they can make use of during the next stay in the accommodation facilities participating in the program. Collecting points is valid for stays that occur after the client has joined the loyalty program. Between the transaction at which the member collects the points and the transaction at which he is planning to use the points has to pass for at least 7 days. When using the benefits, 10 points are worth 1 euro (e.g. a member who has collected 100 prize points at the next stay is entitled to use 10 euros). The member shall have to indicate the membership card number when booking the accommodation, and present his card during the check-in to the facility and when paying the bill in order to request the collection of points or the use of points. Points can be spent only to pay for the cost of accommodation at the reception desk of the accommodation facility. The maximum amount of discount that a member can get using the points cannot be more than 90% of the total invoice amount that a member has to pay for his stay in the accommodation unit. Each time a member makes use of the points for payment of accommodation, they are deleted from his account.
There are four ways of collecting points:
a) Stay - A member of the loyalty program for every euro spent to pay accommodation gets 1 point added to his card account. Valid costs of stay are defined in Article 7.1. When paying a bill at the reception desk or points of sale, a member is required to show his membership card;
b) Consuming in the catering facilities of Plava Laguna - A loyalty program member for each spent euro on food or drinks at the Plava Laguna catering facilities gets 1 point added to his card account. When making a payment, a member is required to show his membership card. Points cannot be used to pay for consumption in the Plava Laguna catering facilities;
c) Ambassador Club – Valid only for reservations made through the Contact Centre. A member of the loyalty program who brings a new guest to hotels and apartments of Plava Laguna d.d. (a guest who has never stayed in the accommodation facilities of Plava Laguna d.d.) gets the number of points in the value of the new guest's stay (and accompanying persons placed in the same unit). For example, if a new guest makes a stay in the value of 500 €, a 500-point value will be added to the account of the Plava Laguna Ambassador Club member. When booking the accommodation, the new guest must be sure to note the name and surname of the Ambassador Club member and specify the number of his card. The Ambassador's points will be calculated only after his friend pays the bill for his stay at the reception desk of the accommodation facility.
d) Promotional activities – Plava Laguna d.d. may award points for promotional purposes.
In order for a member to use the benefits of the program, it is necessary to specify the card number when booking, and then present the card upon the check-in at the accommodation facility and when paying the bill. These conditions must be respected.
7.1. Valid costs of stay
Valid costs of stay include the costs incurred during the stay of a member and his accompaniment in the accommodation facility. This includes all costs in the accommodation unit (price of accommodation, price per person, various supplements, various fees), services that occur on the spot at the points of sale within the hotels or apartments that are managed by Plava Laguna (food and beverages) and VAT. Calculation of points is based on the total amount of paid valid expenses. The bill must be addressed to a member of the program. Points are added to the card account within 7 days of the transaction.
Collecting points cannot be combined with other membership cards.

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 for the current stay are starting to collect after the guest becomes a Member of the program.
7.2. Who can collect points and use discounts
The guests that are using Plava Laguna services through agencies or booking accommodation through portals of online travel agencies are not entitled to discounts or collection of points by staying in accommodation facilities; neither can they use points to pay for their stay.

Online discount for members is valid only for reservations made at plavalaguna.com, and do not apply for reservations through the Contact Centre or Reception. Points can be collected for all expenses that happen on the spot (food and beverage consumption and the like) at points of sale within the accommodation facility run by Plava Laguna. All points of sale where points can be collected are appropriately marked. The card can only be used by the member on whose name it is addressed. If a member fails to stay in the facility, the use of discounts and collection of points is not possible. Points can be transferred to other members. For this purpose, it is necessary to complete the request for transfer of points (online at plavalaguna.com or via Contact Centre).
7.3. The validity of prize points
Points are valid for three years (36 months) from the time of collection at the reception desk. The validity of the points is not extended, but all points collected are valid for three years from the date of the collection. When spending not all but only part of collected points first will be spent those points that have been collected first. If points are not spent after three years from the time of collection, these points will be deleted from the member's account without notice and without the possibility of their return or replacement.
