How it works

How HotelCard works

Simply clever: with the HotelCard, you can stay at 500 top hotels in Switzerland and neighbouring countries and save up to 50%. Simple and honest. No hidden costs. Win-win for everyone.


The HotelCard principle

The "half-price travel pass" for hotels was launched in 2009 to increase the occupancy rate of Swiss mountain hotels during the low season. By purchasing a HotelCard, you are actively supporting the local hotel industry as 100% of the room price goes directly to the hotel. Our unique approach ensures that hotels pay no commissions or fees, resulting in improved occupancy rates throughout the year, all thanks to the HotelCard.

A subscription that pays off immediately

For an annual subscription fee of CHF 99, you can enjoy unlimited stays at any of our partner hotels and save up to 50%. One HotelCard is sufficient per room, regardless of the number of occupants. Your subscription fee typically covers itself after just one night's stay, and from there on, you'll be saving significantly on every other hotel visit. Those who do the math travel with HotelCard.

A reason to travel more

Our offer is aimed at anyone who treats themselves to a hotel experience in Switzerland at least once a year. No matter what your budget or how many stars. Whether it's a romantic city break, hiking and skiing in the mountains or a wellness weekend in a spa or boutique hotel. As a HotelCard member, you will always find a reason to travel, explore new regions and discover new things.

Discover new places far away from mass tourism

"Since I own a HotelCard, we go on excursions much more often again and treat ourselves to the small luxury of an overnight stay in a hotel. Switzerland has so many exciting corners and with HotelCard, we are always discovering new destinations far away from mass tourism.”

A great thing for hotels

“As a hotelier, I appreciate the model. Unlike other booking portals, HotelCard does not take commission on bookings. HotelCard members are welcome guests at our hotel and are a real asset, especially in the low season”

Win-win situation for all involved

"I would like to thank the whole HotelCard team for their great commitment. In the meantime, our children no longer live at home and we use the HotelCard offer very often for short holidays. A great thing and I think it really is a win-win situation for everyone. Thank you very much and have fun and success searching and finding nice partner hotels. See you in the next inspiring newsletter."
