4. VitalityClub account and benefits
An account ("VitalityClub account") is maintained for each customer participating in VAMED VitalityClub. The VitalityClub account balance shows the bonus points ("VitalityClub points") generated on the basis of the customer's transactions under proof of VAMED VitalityClub membership during the payment process. These transactions are converted to VitalityClub points unless excluded from the bonus. Sales generated by the purchase of vouchers, the use of medical services, local tax, half-yearly and annual memberships as well as membership fees for the participating resorts, third-party services within a participating resort (e.g., hairdresser, purchases in the stores, tips, stays booked via a tour operator, external online booking platforms, agencies or via insurance companies and contractually agreed special rates) are excluded from the bonus. The VAMED Vitality World resorts reserve the right to exclude other sales from the bonus by appropriate announcement. Retrospective consideration of transactions made on the VitalityClub account is possible within three months from the invoice date by sending the invoice (by mail or email), and including the card number on the reverse side under the bar code, to the respective VAMED Vitality World resort.
The conversion factor “transactions/sales to VitalityClub points” is determined by VSG. The VitalityClub points accumulated in the VitalityClub account can be redeemed for vouchers (“VitalityClub vouchers”) in the VitalityClub app, the VitalityClub portal or via the tablets available at the VAMED Vitality World resorts. VAMED VitalityClub benefits can be used at the VAMED Vitality World resorts participating at the time of the claim by presenting the digital VitalityClub voucher. VitalityClub points accrued in the VitalityClub account expire 36 months after their accrual (which is the day on which the points are credited to the respective VitalityClub account). VitalityClub points available up to 03/31/2022 can only be redeemed until 12/31/2022. The commercial trading of VitalityClub vouchers (e.g., via Internet platforms) is prohibited.
