Personal benefits are extra benefits that are provided by the Responsible Entity to Members.
Personal benefits are an added extra for Members which may be added to or removed by the Responsible Entity at any time, in accordance with the Constitution.
As the name suggests, Personal benefits are personal or exclusive to Members who first purchase the Membership. This means that if you sell or give your Membership to someone else, they will not receive the Personal benefits. That is because Personal benefits are not transferable except if inherited upon the death of the Member and at the discretion of the Responsible Entity.
The Responsible Entity may modify or remove Personal benefits or modify the application of Personal benefits to different levels of Memberships, provided that Members who hold Memberships of the same level are treated equally and Members who hold Memberships of a different level are treated fairly.
The current Personal benefits include participation in the Interval program (see section 3.6 onwards for detail about the Interval program), and Accor Vacation Club Travel by Flight Centre, which is described below.
Accor Hotels Select
New in 2012, as a Personal benefit, Members are able to use their Première Points to make reservations at a select group of hotels operated by the Accor Group. New hotel offers are sourced regularly for Members and are offered subject to availability.
Accour Vacation Club Cruises
New in 2012, Accor Vacation Club Cruises offers a Personal benefit to Members which allows Members to use a combination of Première Points and cash to obtain competitive rates on domestic and international cruises. Accor Vacation Club Cruises is provided by a third party provider, namely Our Vacation Centre Pty Ltd in conjunction with I.C.E. Gallery Asia Pacific Pty Ltd. The companies entered into an affiliate agreement on 1 November 2012 for an initial term of 12 months. The termination window allows either party to terminate the agreement at any time with 180 days notice.
Accor Vacation Club Red Letter Stays
As an additional Personal benefit, from time to time discounted cash rates for hotels within the Accor Group (other than Club Properties) may be offered to Members at a discount cash rate.
Participation in the Interval International program
The Responsible Entity has entered into agreements with Interval, an external exchange company, which means that the Club is an affiliated resort of the Interval international exchange program. This means that Club Members who are also members of Interval can use their Première Points to holiday at over 2,700 hotels and resorts in exotic and exciting locations all over the world through Interval. Fees apply to Members who wish to become Interval members.
Accor Vacation Club Travel by Flight Centre is a ‘one – stop travel shop’ that is dedicated to service, and to providing competitive rates on both international and domestic flight bookings, tour packages, worldwide hotel stays, cruises, car hire and travel insurance. Accor Vacation Club Travel by Flight Centre is provided by a third party provider, namely Flight Centre Limited. Flight Centre Limited was appointed to operate the Club’s travel program on the 27th of January 2010 for a term of 3 years, which has subsequently been renewed for a further one year. The termination window allows either party to terminate the agreement at such time without cause.
